    Default How To Install: Biltwell Mini Mufflers onto Lowbrow Customs Shotgun Pipes

    Biltwell Mini Mufflers slip fit over the open ends on 1-3/4-inch O.D. custom pipes to change the look and sound of the motorcycle exhaust system. A perforated steel baffle tube with fiberglass wrapping inside the Mini Muffler can be removed to change the exhaust note. Biltwell Mini Mufflers come in different 3 styles Javelin, Cannon and Stinger, with two color options, chrome and black. For this project we decided to install black Javelin Mini Mufflers onto our black Lowbrow Customs Shotgun Pipes which compliment each other really well.


    Biltwell Mini Mufflers installed on Lowbrow Customs Shotgun Pipes.

    Tools needed for the job

    one- 1/2 inch socket
    two - 1/2 inch wrenches
    a hacksaw, pipe cutter, or angle grinder
    one - 7/16 inch wrench
    one - 1/4 inch allen socket
    assorted files of your choosing


    All of the tools needed for this job.

    Step 1. Locate the middle of the mounting tab on the back of the muffler. Line up the center of the tab on the muffler with the rear bracket mounting holes. Mark the Shotgun Pipe where the cut will be made, make sure to leave enough excess pipe to insert into the muffler flange.



    Todd eyeing up where the tabs would meet the mounting bracket.


    Todd marking the line he wants to cut on the pipe, make sure to leave enough excess pipe to insert into the muffler flange.

    Step 2. Unplug O2 censors.


    Todd unplugging the O2 censors from the opposite side of the pipes on the bike.

    Step 3. Using both 1/2 inch wrenches remove both nuts and bolts from the mounting tabs at the rear bracket.

    Step 4. Remove top pipe from the front cylinder head using a 1/2 inch socket.




    Step 5. Use a pipe cutter, angle grinder, or hacksaw to cut the shotgun pipe along the line you marked. If using a hacksaw or angle grinder, it is very important to keep the cut as straight as possible.


    Slow and steady wins the race, try and keep it as straight as possible and use a vise if you have one.

    Step 6. File off any jagged edges along the cut on the inside and out of the Shotgun Pipe.


    Todd filing down any jagged edges.

    Step 7. Using a 7/16 inch wrench, make sure the baffles are tight on each muffler.

    Step 8. You will need two exhaust clamps to secure your mufflers to the pipes, (we used Biltwell’s 1-3/4” Duo Muffler Clamps in black)



    Biltwell Duo Muffler Clamps.

    Step 9. Reinstall Shotgun Pipe to front head loosely.


    Todd loosely putting the front pipe back on.

    Step 10. Loosen clamp to allow it to be slipped over the muffler. Then slide muffler on to head pipe.


    Todd using a 1/4 inch allen to loosen up the Biltwell Duo Clamp.

    Step 11. We chose to stagger the mufflers a little to compensate for the larger diameter of the Duo Muffler Clamps. Locate the middle of the mounting tab on the back of the muffler. Line up the left of the tab on the muffler with the rear bracket mounting holes. Mark the Shotgun Pipe where the cut will be made, make sure to leave enough excess pipe to insert into the muffler flange.


    Todd lining up the second Mini Muffler to where he wants to mount it, and marking it to be cut.

    Step 12. Remove top Shotgun Pipe, remove bottom Shotgun Pipe, and repeat steps 5-8 on bottom Shotgun Pipe.

    Step 13. Reinstall Shotgun Pipe into the rear cylinder head.



    After Cutting down the bottom pipe, Todd reinstalls it to rear cylinder.

    Step 14. Secure clamp to muffler loosely and fit over Shotgun Pipe.


    Todd loosely attaching the Mini Muffler to the rear pipe and bracket.

    Step 15. Reinstall front Shotgun Pipe with muffler.


    By loosely installing both pipes, it makes for an easier time to line up the pipes evenly.

    Step 16. Evenly tighten both Shotgun Pipes at the heads and rear mounting tabs. Adjust pipes till your lines look straight. Make sure to tighten Duo Muffler Clamps.


    Make sure to tightened both clamps, back tab bolts and head bolts.


    Todd using 2 - 1/2 in. wrenches to tighten the back tab bolts.

    Step 17. Plug back in your 02 sensors and go for a ride.


    Plug back in your O2 censors!

    Step 18. Note: When attaching mufflers to rear bracket, you may need to add a washer in-between the tab on the muffler and the rear mounting bracket to be sure that the bolt will not come into contact with the muffler when tightened.


    "That's all there is too it, now go for a ride!" - Todd.

    Default How To Install: Lowbrow Customs Cole Foster Gas Tank

    Known for his minimalist approach to design and style, Salinas Boys own Cole Foster designed this low-slung gas tank to add some class to your custom Harley-Davidson Sportster. The Cole Foster Motorcycle Gas Tank fits 2007 & up Harley-Davidson Sportsters, which have Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI). It comes complete with a knurled aluminum vented gas cap, and uses your stock fuel pump and gas tank mounting hardware. With a capacity of approximately 3.25 gallons you will have plenty of gas for those long moto trips. This gas tank swap is an easy install for novice or experienced motorcycle builder alike.




    Tools Needed For The Job
    1/2 inch wrench
    1/2 inch socket
    3/8 Drive Ratchet
    1/4 Drive Ratchet
    Flathead Screwdriver
    T25 Torx Bit
    1/4 inch Allen


    All the tools needed for the job.

    How To Install: Cole Foster Gas Tank

    Step 1. Remove the seat screw from the fender with a flathead screwdriver. Push forward on the seat to release from the tab located in the middle of the seat. After it releases pull back on the seat from the tank to release the tab from underneath the tank.


    Todd Pushing the seat forward to release from the middle tab.


    This is how the center tab hooks onto the seat.

    Step 2. Remove the front and rear tank bolts. The front use a 1/4 inch allen and 1/2 inch wrench to loosen. Use a 1/2 inch wrench and 1/2 inch socket to remove the bolt from the rear.


    Todd removing the rear tank bolt with 1/2 inch wrench and socket.


    Todd using an extension for his socket to stay clear of the tank. He is using a 1/4 inch allen and a 1/2 wrench to take of the front tank bolt.

    Step 3. There are 3 things we have to disconnect before removing the tank from the bike. 1. You have to unplug the electrical wiring going to the fuel pump. 2. Pull the anti vapor valve hose from the tank. 3. There is a quick disconnect valve located on the fuel pump itself that must be disconnected too.


    Here is where the electrical line is located on the left side of the bike. Push the button in the middle and pull, it will slide free.


    The vapor line is also located on the left side of the bike on the lower left corner of the stock tank. Pull down and it will easily relate from the tank fitting.


    To disconnect the fuel line from the fuel pump, push up on the silver cylinder and pull down on the fuel line.

    Step 4. Now you can remove the tank from the bike.


    Todd removing the gas tank from the bike.

    Step 5. Make sure fuel cap is fully tightened. Carefully turn the tank upside down on a soft cloth to protect it and remove the 5 screws that hold the fuel pump in place with a T25 torx bit.


    Todd removing the 5 screws. Note* if gas leaks from the cap you should try to find away to empty the gas tank first so that you don't have a huge mess on your hands.

    Step 6. Remove the fuel pump assembly from the tank, this may take a little finagling but be patient and note how it comes out to make it easier to go into the new Cole Foster Gas Tank.


    Todd removing the fuel pump, at this point he found it easier to angle the pump away from him to get it out completely.

    Step 7. Check the fuel pump plate gasket to see if it is in good shape or if it needs replaced. It should be seated properly, flat on each side, with the rounded portions keeping it seated in place in the groove.


    Todd checking the fuel pump gasket.

    Step 8. Install the fuel pump into the Cole Foster Gas tank. Tighten down the 5 plate screws until they are all snug, then go back around and completely tighten. The fuel pump does have a factory torque spec on those screws, which is in inch pounds, be sure to look that up in your service manual.


    Make sure to put the pump in the Cole Foster Gas Tank the same way you took it out from the stock tank.


    Line up your holes before putting your screws in place.


    Make sure to put your screws in snug and then fully tighten.

    Step 9. Install the Cole Foster Gas Tank on to the bike using the same front and rear bolts.


    Todd using the same stock bolts to put the Cole Foster Gas Tank on.


    Pay attention to the coil bracket that attaches with the front bolt as well. There are some locating squares for the coil bracket. The tank may need to be lifted slightly at the front to make the holes line up.


    Again the rear uses 1/2 inch wrench and socket and the front uses 1/4 inch allen and 1/2 wrench to tighten.

    Step 10. 1. Plug your electrical wiring connector back in after tucking it behind your quick disconnect valve on the fuel pump and behind your rear spark plug wire. 2. Plug in your fuel line back into the quick connect valve on the fuel pump. Push up on the silver cylinder, push the fuel line up and it will click into place.


    You will hear the plug click when it slides back together.


    Fuel line connected to the quick connect valve on the fuel pump.

    Step 11. Put some gas in the new tank, screw the gas cap on, and GO FOR A RIDE!!!



    This is the gas cap that comes with your Cole Foster Gas Tank.

    Default Triumph 650 Clutch Inspection & Service

    So, you just dragged home a that crusty Triumph or Harley from some craigslist ad and you get her running. As you set out for your maiden voyage and you pull the clutch lever in, nothing happens and the bike dies. The likely answer to your problem is your clutch plates are stuck together from sitting in some Joe Schmo’s garage the past 10 plus years. Todd purchased a pretty raw 1970 Triumph 650 chopper at our last swap & meet and low and behold that same scenario happened to him. So we are going to walk you through on what to inspect and replace under that primary cover “to make her ride like the wind”.


    Todd's new 1970 Triumph 650 chopper with stuck clutch plates.

    First order of business you have to see what evil lurks underneath the primary cover by actually removing it. It is easiest on this bike to simply remove the rear motor mount plate and leave the brake pedal and peg attached to gain access for removal of the primary cover. It is held by two bolts to the motor and one nut to the frame.


    Todd removing the rear motor mount with foot and brake assembly left attached.

    Now that we have the rear motor mount plate off, remove that pesky cover. Todd chose to put a drip pan underneath the bike instead of draining it because you are going to have to clean it up anyway.


    There are 3 types of bolts to remove, you will need 3/16 and 1/4 inch allen along with a 1/4 whitworth wrench.

    Once removed do a once over on the primary cover and look for cracks near the front 2 larger holes where the studs come through, they are prone to cracking there from over tightening.


    Todd showing one of the places to check your primary cover on the inside.

    It’s always good to do a quick visual inspection of the clutch components once the primary cover has been removed before disassembling the components.


    Notable things to look at right away when removing the primary cover.

    One thing in particular Todd noticed right away was how far the primary shoe was adjusted upwards on this particular bike. This is one indication of a chain being beyond it’s useful life. We have new primary chains available here at lowbrowcustoms.com along with a tons of replacement parts and tools to help you restore your clutch back to new. If the primary chain tensioner shoe is worn out really bad we also suggest to replace that as well.

    To see the rest of this helpful tech tip swing on over to Lowbrow Customs.

    Default How to install: Cycle standard blackbird gas tanks on a harley-davidson sportster

    Today we are going to be installing a Cycle Standard Blackbird Slimline Gas Tank on a 2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster. Most of this information will work well for installation on 86 to 03 models as well. You can refer to our tech tip on how to install a Cole Foster Gas tank if you are installing a Blackbird Gas Tank on an 07 and up Sportster with EFI for help with the fuel filter module replacement.



    Blackbird gas tanks fit 86-03, 04-06, and 07 and up Sportster models.
    Blackbird Slimline Gas tanks fit 86-03 and 04-06 Sportster models. Plus we offer a universal tank, which means you will need to fabricate mounts to fit your specific motorcycle. The Black Bird Slimline Gas tanks cannot be used with EFI.

    Tools needed for the job:

    A flathead screw driver
    3/8 Inch drive ratchet
    Socket wrench extension if needed
    1/2 inch wrench
    1/4 inch allen socket

    Always pressure test a new tank and do a trial fitting on your bike first before sending it off to paint. Tanks are pressure tested at the factory, but it is highly recommended you or your painter pressure test it again before painting; it's cheap insurance! This will also save you from any fitment issues or surprises causing paint damage or touchups.


    Removing Old Tank


    First step, remove the seat, this model has a Biltwell HB Black Diamond Seat.

    Step 1: Remove your seat for easy access to the bolt on backbone of the frame. This also leaves room to move the tanks on and off a lot easier.


    Todd removing the rear bolt first.

    Step 2: Remove rear bolt from backbone of the frame holding on the tank using 1/4 inch allen socket and 1/2 inch wrench.


    Todd removing the front bolt of the gas tank.

    Step 3: Remove front bolt holding the tank on using 1/4 inch allen socket and 1/2 wrench.


    Unplug the anti-vapor valve hose.

    Step 4: Check if the tank has an anit-vapor valve hose attached to the tank. Unplug the anti-vapor valve hose from the tank.


    Remove the fuel line from the petcock.

    Step 5: Using a flat head screwdriver, loosen hose clamp on the fuel line and push it down past the nipple of the petcock. Pull the fuel line downward and it will unplug from the petcock. *Make sure to turn petcock to the off position before removing the fuel line.

    Right after Christmas I came home to find a package from Lowbrow. I was absolutely clueless what it was because I hadn't ordered anything recently. Inside was a gift and a handwritten note from Tyler. Every time I've called, or been to their warehouse, their hospitality and helpfulness has been absolutely through the roof. If I have the option to buy from them, I always will, even if the price is a little more (which is never the case), just because of how they do business. I could sit here and fan-girl about them all day, but I got shit to do.

    I have bought several items from Lowbrow and have always been very pleased with their helpful customer service. Very friendly nice people there and they are close to me so I can stop in instead of shipping. Kudos to Lowbrow!
