I have an 06 Jackpot with 40k and no issues.

Ask the owner which download he did on the bike when he installed the pipes. It is important that he did a download. If he didn't, the bike would have been running lean and may have internal damage.

Downloads would be Stage 1, S&S or 05 Hammer Drag pipe download.

The Hammer is the best download.

While the NightTrain is pretty cool looking you'll be kicking yourself in a couple of weeks because of the HP and TQ you will be loosing to the Vic.

I don't know this for fact but at least 5 people I know that ride HD's say the Night Train is the most uncomfortable bike in the HD lineup.

That is like low miles. Wife put 55k on her Kingpin, has 39K or so on the Vision. I have a friend who has over 114K on his 04, never a issue with the bike.

I talked to a guy the other day that had a Vegas that he drag raced. The funny thing is he said he didn't start drag racing it untill 55,000 miles and has 78,000 on it now. He told me hes raced it a lot and tried to blow the motor so he could put a big bore kit in it. He said it still runs like new and hes give up on the big bore kit for now.Pretty wild because one of my HDs with a 108 hp was pretty crippled at 20,000 so much so I was afraid of getting stranded and sold it.
