Two for Tuesday: Burly Cable Kits and Narrow Glide Ape’s, and Kuryakyn’s Curved Horizontal Side Mount License Plate Holder

Küryakyn Curved Horizontal Side Mount License Holder Today, I’m pleased to announce a new weekly feature here on the Motorcycle Parts and Accessories Blog: Two for Tuesday, a weekly post highlighting two or more of the great products you’ll find among the four J&P Cycles Catalogs or online at

This week, we’re pleased to showcase two really great products (Kuryakyn’s Curved Horizontal Side Mount License Plate Holder, and Burly Cable Kits and Narrow Glide Ape’s). First, let’s take a look at how easy it is to clean up the lines on your bike by relocating your license plate.

Let’s face it; your license plate is a necessary evil. Complicating matters is the fact that the factory normally slaps it in the worse possible place, making it a 4”X7” tin centerpiece of your otherwise bad-to-the-bone machine. And no amount of candy paint, billet wheels, stroker motors or chrome will matter so long as that little monster is flying high on the top of the rear fender.

Küryakyn Mount ClampsWell, fear not. The brain trust at Kuryakyn has hit another home run in the form of the Curved Horizontal Side Mount License Plate Holder (J&P Part # 383-657), which cleanly relocates the plate down to the swing arm your bike and encapsulates it in a chrome-plated frame with flush mount screws and even a built-in LED light to illuminate it for your local authorities. Fitment on the Holder is a snap; just select the corresponding mounting clamp for your bike and you’re in business. The Kuryakyn Curved Horizontal Side Mount License Plate Holder is available for Softail 383-658, 383-659 Sportster 340-197 Dyna 383-661 383-662 and even a Rocker model 383-660.

Burley Cable-Line KitsThe second item we’re highlighting for this week’s Two for Tuesday post is Burly’s Cable Kit and Narrow Glide Ape. The Sportster faithful are often forgotten or left behind in the aftermarket equation, but not by the good folks over at Burly. Designed just for the Harley-Davidson XL faithful, Burly has taken the guesswork out of putting apes on your Sporty. These Burly cable/line kits come in the 12”, 14” and 16” variety, so no matter which pair of Burly Narrow Glide Apehangers you choose, Burley’s got you covered.

The kits feature black braided steel brake line, extended clutch cable, throttle/idle cables and all necessary wiring.

Burley’s Narrow Glide Apehangers are tapered bottom bars, so they look perfect over the narrow glide front end on a Sportster. And whether your blingin’ or blacked out, the bars are available in chrome or black, dimpled and drilled for internal wiring. So hang em high and roll that sporty with pride!
