Hooligan XRX Kit

Hooligans are the hot thing for dirt track racing and street. For whatever reason most Hooligan bikes use stock 3+ gallon tanks. I have adapted my stuff to the stock tanks. If you want to use an XR styled tank and tail, flip over to my SXR products. Hooligans can be used on the street and track without much in the way of changes. You may want to pull your license plate and avoid using your signals. (I love the idea of a brake light and left turn blinkers spooking the racers behind you.)

A note on XRX tail

I will fit Evos 1994 to 2022/23 frames without the Screaming Eagle module on top of rear seat rails. The tank must be the 3.3 gallon with a completely rounded back end. The rear of some big Sportster tanks have a slight step in their roundness and they won’t work with the tail.

Sportster dirt track racing

I have restructured these pages with an emphasis on racing. Street riders can also benefit from this information.

Advice for Hooligan racers

California Hooligan racer Tony Alves (third in points as of 5/29/19) has words on what works best on the track. “Don’t mod the engine with a hot cam-leave it essentially stock. An engine with a big hit is very hard to negotiate in the corners smoothly (the light switch thing!).” Don’t use a 2004 and on Sportster. Those rubber frames bikes are 40 pounds heavier and the ergos are not as good as the earlier frames. Rubber frames will push in the corners and inhibit quick cornering. Those with quick steering kits will pass you on the inside coming out a corners.

If you are building a Sportster for short track racing on less than a third mile tracks here are some suggestions.

Small trick.
If you are a slider, cut the right edge off the steering stop so you can turn further to the right. Keep your bars at least a ¼” away from the tank. If your ability to counter steer to the right is hampered you could risk a ‘high side’ and that you do not want!

Do not modify your engine.
Sportsters are a handful on short tracks. You want controllable, tractable power to negotiate short tracks with short corners not some berserko rocketship that can get you in all sorts of trouble. S&S will not be happy I’m telling you this.

Don’t buy a SuperTrapp 2-into-2 system.
They much too expensive to trash in racing. (And I sell ‘em.) Try my less expensive 2-into-1 system for power/torque gain at under 600 bucks.

Learn how to slide.
This will be a huge advantage against most other Hooligan racers who have no clue about sliding. Sliding allows you to back into corners and steer with the rear wheel. Watch others do this and copy them.

Concentrate your spending on these items.

  1. 19” rear wheel conversion kit and 19” tires for traction and steering control.
  2. Get taller 14¼” race style shocks-you will not believe the ride difference.
  3. Order Davey Durelle’s fork handling kit
  4. Order my flat track bars for more leverage. (That’s all you have to do to make a race Hooligan.) Oh and get number plates!

Hooligan Street and Race Products

Fork brace

Fork brace
Newly designed brace is coming. It strengthens the front end and acts as a mount for front fender and fork guards. It’s aircraft alloy aluminum. Mounts without removing the wheel.

Sportster Side Battery Cover

Sportster Side Battery Cover
This is my Gen II battery side cover with rounded contours to compliment the shape of the oil tank on the right side. This is a fiberglass piece made in black gelcoat. The surface from the mold is microscopically rough so I sand it with 2000 wet/dry and polish with 3M’s Finessette II so it looks like a factory part.

19" Rear Wheel Replacement Kits

19" Rear Wheel Replacement Kits
I found a new supplier for 19” conversion kits. Street trackers and Hooligan racers need a 19" rear wheel so dirt track tires can be used (dirt track tires are only made in 19”). The cheapest source of a 19" wheel for the rear is buying another front. Yes, gigantic tires can be mounted on narrow 2.15” wheels.

Dirt Track Styled Bars

Dirt Track Styled Bars
Dirt track styled bars are wider for leverage and position the arms more comfortably. Stock bars is really not such a good idea for racing. This 1” bar has a 4" rise, a 10" pullback and 34" width. They are dimpled to allow cables to pass under switch components. Price is reasonable too.

SuperTrapp Exhaust

SuperTrapp Exhaust
SuperTrapp is out of business and this Sportster is no longer available. Stainless steel exhausts look right on a street tracker. Performance gains and weight savings.

Hooligan 2-into-1 Exhaust

Hooligan 2-into-1 Exhaust
Hooligan 2-into-1 pipe system fits 1985-2013 Sportsters (please specify when you order. This is a race styled exhaust for the track and rural street, too BUT may I suggest you not use them in cities for the good of motorcycling. This pipe will be fine for short Hooligan tracks of 1/8 to ¼ mile. They will perform even better on long ½ mile and mile tracks. Lightweight, it tucks in low alongside the frame to avoid damage in right hand corners or a high side. The 2 ¼” x 12” megaphone has a deep throaty sound and excessive noise is trapped by a perforated core surrounded by permanent steel wool packing--no repacking needed. It's brushed stainless steel. You don’t have to paint it and it is non-rusting.

SXR 15” Shocks

SXR 15” Shocks
These are high quality American shocks that were designed specifically for AMA Sportster dirt track racing some years back. They are more robust than street shocks. Construction is double wall. The big beefy shaft is precision ground and hard chromed. Shocks use a fluid cell to produce fade free damping. Pre-load adjustments have five positions for your weight. And most importantly they are 15” tall.

Hooligan Graphics Kits

Hooligan Graphics Kits
Tank and tail graphics for XR (750, 883, 1000, 1200)

Fork Guards & Fender

Fork Guards & Fender
Fender is being redesigned and will be unavailable for a spell.

Hooligan Mud Guard

Hooligan Mud Guard
The stock rear fender protects the rear cylinder from wheel thrown debris, moisture, tar, etc. The OEM circuit breakers are also mounted to the stock fender. In most cases the rear fender get deep sixed. My mud guard fills both roles-debris protection and circuit breaker mounting.

Hidden Headlight Kit with 10x12 AMA Number Plate

Hidden Headlight Kit with 10x12 AMA Number Plate
Perfect for Street Trackers and Hooligan Sportsters This kit will add the flat track look to your street tracker. A 10" x 12" AMA plate hides mounting and your wiring that used to be behind your stock headlight.
