Default Let's hear your winter mods list!!

Ok.. holidays came and went and hopefully everyone has new mods for the bike. While it's sub 20's, snowy, icy and salty here in the northeast I was hoping to see what everyone has on their mods list.

For me it's:
- drop the stock seat 2 inches, add in seat heater and controls for air ride
- recover seat
- new mirrors
- powder coat clutch and brake levers black

VictoryHID high & Low
WitchDoctor Laydown License Plate
WitchDoctor short kickstand
HMD Air Ride
Digital Guard Dawg Keyless Ingition
Vic HardBall OEM Fairing

Presently installing a pair of police car horns. Next, I'm hooking up a Lloydz VFCIII I got from another member. Later, a pair of Avon Cobras will be mounted.

I received gift certificates for my local Victory Shop for Christmas.

I will be getting the Lloyds aircleaner and a PCV/AT. Once I see what that does, I will get the Lloydz Adjustable Timing System. Then I'll get the Bassani 2 into 1 header.

That will be good for now. Maybe next winter I'll do cams.

I was going to add some colour this winter but after working a couple of months with a graphics guy I haven't found a combination I like. I'll give it a rest for a month or two then try again.

Although the bike is still on warranty I ordered and received a Lloydz IAV and ATS just before Christmas. I'll put them on one at a time in the spring and analyze what each of them do. The bike has plenty of power so I'm just trying to get it breathing properly at this point. According to Victory, the 2011 KP came with the stage 2 cam as a stock piece so if I come across some extra cash a new S&S breather and a Big Slash exhaust will be next.

I also picked up a used handlebar a couple of weeks ago that comes very close to what I want but still requires some bending. I talked to a welder on Thursday for some advice doing that so I'll probably be getting to that this week too.

There's always something.

Normally I would say my winter mods would be to the odometer and about 3000 of them, but been too cold and wet to ride, or maybe I am just getting old.

Sinned, please share the process for your seat mods. The changes, heat especially, so very interesting.
