Hello, I just recently purchased a Vulcan Nomad 1700. The bike had 977 miles on it when I bought it. It now has over 1000. I looked in the owners manual and it said the break in was 1000 miles so I bought Vance and Hines Twin Slash Round pipes for it. I'm new to Vulcans and want to take care of the bike. Do you all have any advice on how to get the bike to it's optimal performance? In all the research I have done it looks like guys send the ECU out to have it re done and slap some pipes on it and that's about it unless you want to get extravagant. Also, I noticed that the bike gets a little hot around the crotch which is to be expected with that size engine right under you. Any suggestions on how to handle this? I hear the remapping of the ECU helps...I just want to enjoy riding with friends and family. Thanks for your help. Glad to be part of the community.
