My Vulcan came from a salvage pool. Some one lost control at 3,400miles. It was a 2009 but I had to change the frame and 06-09 frames where tooooo much, so now I have a 2005 meanstreak (05 frame = title that says 2005 for). I learned alot about Meanstreaks when I had to take it all apart, oh and put it togather again. Never ever ground out your cobra power leed. It will trash the CPU.

Question, does anyone know of a machine shop that can straighten a inverted fork tube?

I said "why don't you just buy a mercedes and you won't have to trade cars all of the time". He never answered me.

Leave the Vulcan alone, good G_D it friggin flies as is.
He was likely biting his tongue and counting to 10 to hold back the urge to smack you, lol…. It sounds like your dad got just as much enjoyment out of tinkering and modifying things as he did driving them. I suspect even if he bought the Mercedes, he would still be looking for ways to personalize it or improve performance.

If everyone wanted the same motorcycle and cars with stock performance there would be no billion dollar aftermarket performance industry. The fact that one exists tells you that most people like to personalize whatever it is that they ride. This doesn't mean you have to join the parade. If you’re happy with the way your ride rolled out of the dealer’s showroom consider yourself lucky. I would venture to say you are in the minority though……..
