List of what I want to do to my bike - 2015 Vulcan Voyager 1700 ABS

Would like to get opinions from the group on the following;

Lower my bike;
Lower it about an inch, two would be better but understand that the ride may become like a rock.

Get new pipes;
Thinking of the cobra 4230 or 4228 but can't find the difference in sound or performance. Would love some feedback...

Add kawasaki green accent lighting under the tank and trunk.
Being honest on this one, does it sound to tacky?

ECU Program;
Send the ECU off to Ivan.
Should I do this before or after putting on the new pipes?


Any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Jeff

Get the Vance & Hince, do not lower it, lower the seat or get a different, lower seat.
Green light ? Why not, I'm not a big fan of such things, but YOU must like it.
Ivan, no matter if before or after, BUT you you tell IVAN that you want to change pipes, better tell him, which one you want to buy/install.

Actually Ivan flashes the same regardless of stock or aftermarket pipes. He does make an accommodation for large air intakes though. But best to talk to him.

I agree with DM on lowering. Do not do it. These bikes have little enough cornering clearance as it is.

As for the lighting, with the black/grey paintjob, I might consider going with white accent lighting instead of green. That is just a personal preference thing though.
