Question What are your Favorite XC XR and Magnum Parts?

What are your Favorite XC XR and Magnum Parts? Stock or Custom ?

1. Why do you like it?
2. Where can we buy it?
3. How much $ does it cost?
4. What would make it even better?
5. What will it fit exactly?

Shouldn't your post also be favorite XC and XR parts since they are the same bike but a Magnum is a XC just like a XCT is a XC with a trunk and a few extra parts? Back to your question, my favorite thing I have added to my XR is the heated grips (standard on the XCT). Makes riding in 35 degree temps much nicer.

I'm taking the liberty of mentioning two parts.
First up are the Lloydz VM1-DR cams....these woke the 106 up made it run like its supposed to. Unfortunately, cams, as most of you know, are part of a system. Alone the cams cost me $450 and were self installed. To that add the cost of intake, exhaust, fuel controller and tuning (and labor if you need it).

The XC has always been comfortable for me and I did many miles sitting on a Drag Specialties touring seat. but last year I replaced it with a Corbin Dual Tour seat and this one took comfort to the next level...As painful as it is, the cost was $630... I can't say I'm unhappy I spent that much plus my bud @roboots21 benefited as well...

Mine are the Ness Forged Bars. Function, safer, Looks awesome. Mine were bought used from someone but they show still available from the factory. 2014 item. I really like what Ness has done with the Victory line. I never thought any of his HD stuff was that appealing but I stopped paying close attention ten years ago to those parts and bits. IMO I hate the tear drop mirror craze. Its either annoying and distracting or just ....

way back when Arlen Ness applied for a designer job at HD. They didn't think he had the talent to be a designer

I second both of these parts are well. Well worth the $$$!

I'll add, in the looks department, adding a 21" wheel to my Cross Roads. Totally changed the look of the bike and I did it all for under $1500 including tire/wheel/fender/paint/abs ring.

I'd have to say my fav's are the forged crash bars, and the 21" front wheel. (Vic Parts) And for aftermarket, LLoydz cams, PCV, and 1/4 turn throttle ring.

I tried an Ultimate seat...and HATED it. I was so thick, I lost connection with the bike, so wide it put me on the balls of my feet. I'm not a fan of that pillow, couch cushion seating, I felt like I sunk in, not sat on the seat....and damn that Ultimate foam held some serious heat, it did not breathe at all, brutal on a hot day....
