Default First Bike! 06 vegas

So im brand new to this site and just picked up my first bike.. an 06 vegas nuclear sunset. I'm extremely happy with my purchase as I get compliments everywhere I go and have more than enough power (for now) to do whatever I may need. It came with Victory performance drag pipes and I believe an ecu remap according to the seller. So far Ive only installed a tach and ness mirrors but looking forward to throwing alot more money her way! Anyone got any ideas of a good way to start performance mods? The plan was to go with an S&S intake, PCIII, and get her dyno'ed. Any advice would be much appreciated! Ill have pics up as soon as I figure out how to upload!

Beautiful bike! I understand the compliments. Looks like a billet rim on the front and maybe chrome forks? Should ride a long time for you. Enjoy!

I ride an '08 Kingpin and people still ask if it is a new bike. I've been riding it four years and it has 20,000 miles on it now. 100K miles is not unheard of. At 4200, yours is hardly broken in. Enjoy twisting the throttle for many miles more!

Nice ride.

Let's see, where to start.....

The S&S would be a good intake, it comes with a map from S&S that the dealer can install.
Most folks like the '05 Hammer map for this application instead of the '06 map recommended. Either can be installed. If the dealer is familiar with S&S maps and has successfully done them, I might be inclined to just do that. If they have no experience with them I might not.

Lloydz also has a good intake as well as PMRT, but the PMRT is getting harder to find I think.

Lloydz torque tubes are a good option also.

Any of these is going to require taking a reciprocating saw to the stock airbox, so some experience doing it is a good thing. Must be extra careful not to nick any wires.

If you don't trust the S&S map or possibly want more upgrades then a fuel controller is a better option.

You don't say where you are, but if you live in the middle of the country give Rylan Voss a call at The Vic Shop. In the southeast, it's Kevin Cross at Southern Motorworx. In the northeast of course it's Lloydz.

There are possibly many more good shops, but either of those guys are a phone call away for some good advice.

Good Luck.

Every day is a good day to ride. Some days are just better than others.

I appreciate the compliments you guys! Rocketo, Ive been researching a good bit on here and found Lloydz seems to have a great rep. I'm currently stationed in San Diego though so the only Vic dealer around here is Southbay Motorsports which doesn't seem to really specialize in anything specific. Odds are ill be doing most installations myself. As far as a fuel controller is concerned, a PC3 is what I plan on installing at the moment and it will go on at the same time as a new intake. Gotta get the money together first though! One thing I am concerned about is the chrome. I dont have anywhere to store my baby inside and with the san diego salty air I was wondering if anyone may have any advice on how to deal with it? Again I appreciate all the help!
