Default What's the best thing you ever did to your Vic??

This may have already been done but ohh well. So list the best mod you've done to your bike. It doesn't have to be something you bought either, maybe you found a cool trick you'd like to share.

So, I'll start. I haven't done much to my '07 Vegas 8-Ball yet, it already had a Lloydz VFC, shotgun pipes, rear seat and pegs and the stage 1 air box kit. I got a pretty sweet deal on a dealer demo. So besides purchasing the bike the best thing I did was the 2'' foward foot peg relocation kit.

Thank you, Its a Jackpot. My first choice was an 8ball but I wanted the wide tire. I knew I could sell or powdercoat all the chrome.

In a week or so I should have the NEW pics. THose pics are a year old and I did a lot more powdercoating to her.

My controls are the stock controls BUT here is a link to 4 inch extensions.

The guy that makes them is a Victory rider. Be sure to tell him that Diamond from the *** refered you.

great looking bike. Did u have any issue when you lowered your bike/ i lowered my 8 ball 1.5 inches and seem to get a little rubbing in the fender. I adjusted the shock, but think i need a fewe more turns. the rake looks good also.

Actually I'm on air ride BUT I did have her lowered before the air ride. Never had issues.

Saying that, there are some things to do when lowering your bike. As you've already done and it sounds like you need more. Adjust the pre load on the shock, move the wiring harness to the side of the fender. All it takes is one time to rip out the harness.

Depending on your weight you may not be able to get enough pre load to stop bottoming out. If that's the case then an air ride or the Penske shock is your alternative.
