Slamtail. A Different Suspension Lowering Kit For Twin Cam Softails.

Slamtail1When Ken Rutherford sat down to design the world’s first hydraulically actuated lowering system for Twin Cam powered Softail models, his concept was straight forward: Create a high quality, over engineered, easy to install lowering kit that allows riders to adjust the stance of their Softail without losing the stock ride quality of the bike.

Slamtail2Slamtail4Slamtail is unique because it attaches to the stock OEM shocks and uses a key fob to operate hydraulic rams that adjust the ride height of the bike while retaining the stock ride quality at any height. To go one step further, buyers now can also purchase the additional Spring Pre-Load Adjuster Kit so they can firm up the ride for better handling by eliminating “spring sag” with the included pre-load adjuster wrench. This accessory kit must be installed at the same time the Slamtail is going in while the shocks are apart and is a highly recommend addition if you regularly carry a passenger.

Once activated the self-contained on-board Electro-Hydraulic Power generates over 1000psi fluid pressure that moves fluid through high quality aerospace spec stainless-steel braided Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) hydraulic hoses which are swaged (not crimped) at both ends. This fluid pressure lengthens and shortens two hydraulic rams that are attached to your Harley spring/shock assemblies with a retracting force of over one ton per ram. This is closed looped system which means it will not leak and loose pressure like most air ride systems on the market even after long rides, or extended periods of storage.

    Looks like an excellent product. Like everything nowadays; quite spendy but hey – quality costs.

    Looks like the 1st thing new in a long time in the Softail suspension system. Sounds promising.

    This is a great product, extremely well engineered. Which is not surprising, given that its developer is a mechanical design engineer with a breadth of experience in motor racing who lists Nelson Piquet and Michael Schumacher in his work history, and which included World Rally car and World Super Touring Cars.

    looks like it is well thought of by and through his past experiences in Engineering. I don’t think that its has many hopes of becoming a “must have” product. $2,000 Bucs plus $300 more for a Part that you must have and should have been included in the Package. I think that my Legend Air system will not becoming out for the Slamtail system! Good Luck!
