My '06 VN900

Well this is simply a thread about the mods I will be doing to my 2006 Vulcan 900. I bought the bike brand new from the dealer bone stock. I'm mainly looking to make this bike into a touring/comfort bike. So, mods like windshield/batwing, engine bars and luggage bags are going to be a must. Keep tuned.
  • Mustang Wide Touring Seat with Riders Backrest
  • Mutazu Sissy Bar Back Rest with Luggage Rack
  • PHCustoms Tank Bib with pocket
  • Ricks Motorsport Regulator/Rectifier
  • Shorai LFX18 Battery
  • Battery Tender Pig Tails
  • Kuryakyn Scoop Air Box Cover (Chrome)
  • K&N Air Filter
  • 2" bar risers
  • Phillips 1157 Brake Light bulb

Of course there are more mods to come. I'll update when I get more mods.

Have you been storing the bike for 6 years? Seems a waste of an already great looking bike. Get the R1 at the same time?

i bought it in the end of 07 as a leftover from 06. i havent ridden it as much because i love my r1. i will however start using the vn9 this year for long trips. no storage for the bike. yearly checks and maintenance are still done even with low miles.

I bought my bike at a Yamaha dealer it was a trade in. The owner of the Yamaha dealership rides a R1 to work everyday, even in the rain. Last time I talked to him he has only missed like 2 days this year of riding the bike in.
