Custom Design Studios announces new EFI throttle-by-wire adapter

Today, Kirk Taylor’s Custom Design Studios (CDS) announced its most recent industry-leading innovation – the new EFI throttle-by-wire adapter for their "Dick’s Cool Unit" velocity stack. In February, CDS released the "Dick’s Cool Unit" velocity stack, which was well-received and quickly featured on several custom bikes. Made of the finest materials, the adapter bolts directly on to a Mikuni Carburetor and can be attached to CV and S&S carburetors with a separate adapter. Now Kirk and his team have added another wonderful option for motorcycle fanatics.

With the new adapter motorcyclists can now attach "Dick’s Cool Unit" to a wider variety of cycles. Not only is the part well-built and attractive, but it is also a breeze to install. This is great news for all builders, as it makes installing CDS’s Dick’s Cool Unit as easy as changing an air filter.

Custom Design Studios was established in 1988 by Kirk Taylor and is located in Novato, California. Taylor’s vision combines artistry, mechanical savvy and solid construction. He believes that builders "shouldn’t limit themselves when it comes to expressing their vision of art." In addition to CDS’s service, assembly and parts operation, the company also has a full paint department and a fabrication shop. CDS can handle all the needs of the riding public from oil-changes and tires to beautiful one of a kind customs.
