Not much going on in WNC since the surprise 6" of snow on the ground. Got my nose buries in these forums. However, the more I read and learn, the more confused I get. I'm talking about MODS. Now, the only Mod I have done on my 2012 Vulcan Nomad, because it was a clear ( black and white ) winner on this forum, is Racin Rays throttle MOD. A no brainer-everyone agrees that is works great, and it does. Here is where is gets ugly for me-
Tires-which are the best? What size and brand are the best for front and back? MC tire or CT(Car tire) for rear? I've read so much but haven't gleaned a clear answer for myself.
Air filter MOD with Power commander? I've read where folks swear by them. My local mechanic at the shop where I bought the bike said "You will pick up some performance, but sacrifice some performance too". He said leave it alone. Make sense?
Bottom line is I am looking to optimize my bikes over all ride. I am no mechanic, I am not a fast rider ( although I would like to move quicker off the line, and I live in the mountains where twisties are a plenty).
Any black and white solutions for the above questions based on my riding style and where I ride? Thanks in advance.
BTW - just read Racin Rays Franken MOD- ugh! Ray, have you no limits???
I may just have to plan a vaca to south Florida!
