Getting a '13 CCT this week and am concerned with accessories. Do the Victory 2" pullback handle bars make a significant change in riding posture? Does anyone have an opinion concerning the CCT flip windshield? Are the Kicker Premium speakers a good upgrade? Does the HID headlight make a difference in night vision? Does the Victory Sena Bluetooth communication headset work well? Is the Stage 1 exhaust worth the price? Thanks, any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

From your listed accessories I have the HID low beam and the Klock Werks windshield. I like them both though putting the tour windshield back on by yourself is a PITA.

I also have the rider backrest and it is my favorite accessory.

Just got a set of drawback bars from HMD520, black HMD-40, but not installed yet so I can't speak about them.

Getting a '13 CCT this week and am concerned with accessories. Do the Victory 2" pullback handle bars make a significant change in riding posture? I found I wanted to move an inch or so forward, and it made a difference. I like a little more control than stock seating offered me, so the pullbacks would put you in the same position, and I find it very comfy.
Does anyone have an opinion concerning the CCT flip windshield? Go with the Klockworks Flare. You won't regret it, IMHO
Are the Kicker Premium speakers a good upgrade? Does the HID headlight make a difference in night vision?The 2012 came with HID. I guess you love it or hate it. For my eyes, the color diffuses too fast reducing side visibility. I am searching for a different color light, I would prefer standard lighting and put in a set of Silverstars. YMMV Does the Victory Sena Bluetooth communication headset work well?They say it works, if you have a pillion, you will need @, two, double dongles. Not optimum, some say they aren't that great, but you can read about it for yourself.
Is the Stage 1 exhaust worth the price? Stage 1 is a personal decision, I don't like loud, deep, throaty or otherwise noise. As for "power" the whole stage 1 is only good for 5-8 HP. Save your money, there are plenty of other things you can do to get more for less money, just look around, it isn't a secret.
Thanks, any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
Good luck, congrats and happy (S)miles to you

sand man,
I added the Vic 2 inch pullbacks this summer and should have done it sooner. My short arms went from stretched out to a nice bend at the elbow.
I added the Kicker speakers and they are a marginal improvement at best if you have just the 2 speakers. I can't speak for 4 speaker system and/or an amp.
I had the Vic stage 1 and they are about the same sound as the stock pipes. I was looking for bigger sound so I went with the Ness Honkers (much better). There are other options for sound and performance in these forums if you search for 'pipes' or 'exhaust'.
Great HID headlight discussions in these forums as well. In fact there's probably a good discussion on pretty well anything that might interest you - just use that search function or keep asking questions.
Cheers.

I think your bike should already come stock with the kicker speakers...

The "search" function still works the last time I checked and is really not that hard to use.

for me a backrest is a must, and unless you have ape arms you will need the pullback bars to be able to lean all the way back against it.

The "search" function still works but did not provide me with specific answers to my accessory questions. Thanks for your opinion, everybody has one.

I scored some stage 1 pipes that were taken off because they were not loud enough for the buyer. I think that are just loud enough for me and add a bit of rumble but not much over stock. I saved a lot on the deal.

I have the Klockwerks flip and I am on my 3rd one, the first 2 cracked at the same spot. The dealer is waiting for this one to crack and then the mount gets replaced, they have installed the last 2. All that said, I love it.

Speakers, I've not had the stock speakers above half volume, even on the highway I just don't have an issue with volume.

Bars, I've got the stock ones and they are fine for me, must be my ape truckie arms or the way I sit, no issues.

I really want a backrest and should be seeing one from Santa, I've sat on a demo with one and what a difference it made.

Good luck, best bike I've ever been on!

I installed the 2" pullbacks and the Utopia backrest( using police pad as it is a little smaller) the combination is fantastic. I also installed the HID highlight which I ordered from a member of this forum and very happy with the quality and service.

For me, the best rider comfort accessories were the 2"+ Bars & the Ultimate seat. I'm 5'8" and 190 lbs. Below you can see what else I've added.

Is there a search for dummies on here somewhere... I have the worst luck searching for things...

the search function can be the death of a board, if everyone just does a search, there is no activity.

Use the 2nd search box, at the top/left of each page - the one that says "Google Custom Search" in it - that will give you the quickest and best results. thumb up
