I don't know man. I think I'd ride it for a bit and see what "speaks" to you. You know, kind of like living in a house for a while and get a feel for the "feng shui" before making changes. In the end, of course, it's your bike so you do what you want, eh? thumb up

Just the equalizer.. Haven't had any issues with the cable was thinking of getting the easy pull clutch lever tho.
When you bike is idling do you have a whistling sound ? not sure if its the fuel pump or a vac leak somewhere.

Yip keen, you only got equalizer or leds? ya had any issues with your clutch cable?
If you go into the tech section and do a search for clutch cables, you will probably come up w/quite a few posts re. such. I would look carefully at the shift pinion shaft to see if there are any burrs or what not that might interfere w/the clutch cable movement. I would also remove the clutch lever and check it for any burrs/sharp edges (left from the casting process) that would catch on the cable. My clutch lever had several such imperfections and I used small files of various types (flat, half-round, etc.) to clean up the imperfections. Hopefully you won't have to deal w/this again. cheers

Most members would not recommend he EZ pull. Can't recall exactly why at the moment, but again, if you do a search you'll find a thread or two discussing the pros and cons of it. cheers

Nice machine! Very nice! My timings out I bought s VegasLow 4 mths ago and had to buy pillion seat, factory pegs n brackets, backrest, couldve maybe bought yours! :)
Welcome to the forum, theres lots of good info and ideas here,
I was thinking the same way as always had black bikes had yhoughts of painting mine black but the mettalic blue grew on me as did allthe bling...didnt change the bike just my attitude and really if I wanted black on black on black I woulve been better off flicking mine for a profit and buying an 8ball.
