My speedo is relocated to sit tucked behind/under the headlight cowl. Not visible from anywhere but when you're actually sitting on the bike. I have both front and rear air suspension. Even though its a Night Rod Special it has PCd Muscle wheels on (lighter) and Avon Cobras back and front. Also 31" drag bar, with Rizoma risers and Vance and Hines 2 into 1 Competition series exhaust, and PC to manage fueling. LEDs, Heated Avon Grips, Extended Passenger peg brackets for comfort, Sundowner seat for long distance riding comfort, rear fender delete and Integrated smooth LED Taillight/turn signals, the list goes on with engine mods as well.

More pics. or it didn't happen!!!

How easy was to install the drag bar?. I guess with the drag bar the speedo needs to be relocated?

Will be nice to see regular pictures in daylight to be able to see more.

Very nice!!! What kind of exhaust is that? After all this research about the V-ROD and seeing your pictures I am taking the plunge!!! Will see if I can get the funds ready this weekend.

Exhaust is a Vance and Hines Competition series Indy system. Runs about $850 for the full system.

Looks sweet! Will it fit with mid-mount controls? Who sell it and install it locally? Do I need to use the "Fuelpak" system if I get this exhaust? Is really a difference in power?

Sorry for so many questions...

According to Wikipedia:

Quote:
VRSCD Night Rod
Model years: 2006–2008. The Night Rod was introduced in 2006 as the “new hot rod-inspired motorcycle” built around the Revolution engine. The Night Rod featured Mid-mount controls, supplemented by highway-pegs. Straight-shot mufflers, helping the Revolution Engine to produce a claimed 120 horsepower (89 kW) at the crank.

No it won't fit mid controls, Fuelpak or power commander is necessary with ANY exhaust on this bike as it runs extremely lean from factory. You'll definitely get more ponies with pretty much any aftermarket exhaust you get. Down low specially.

No prob, glad i can help.
