Your Favorite ***Upgrade*** (just pick one!)

What is your favorite upgrade you have done to your Vulcan and why?

This can be anything from exhaust to grips.

Remove air filter screen: notice slightly improved acceleration.

I used to ride a 650r, and I like the bike's combination of sporty acceleration (no match for a race bred ninja 600) and around town friendliness, and comfort (riding solo).

I got the vulcan for the gf to ride with me (she hated riding on the 650, always slid forward on the sloped seat), and while it's nimble for a bigger bike, and I'm happy with it in that regard, acceleration leaves a bit to be desired after being spoiled by the 650r. I know it's a 'cruiser', but why can't it be a little bit of a 'bruiser' as well?

My favorite upgrade to date is my Cobra Power Pro HP 2 into 1 exhaust. It looks good and I can hear the bike now. The stock exhaust was just too quiet.

My Cobra Speedster Longs, they sound great and I feel that the bike picks up better.

Kuryakyn Swing Wing pegs - Just enough "up and out" for those of us taller riders. They allso kept me from putting on the highway bar I was trying to avoid!
