I am not a big fan of speed, but on the interstate everyone drives 85 or faster. My Vulcan 900 Custom topped out around 80. Does my bike have issues...or is that normal speed for the Vulcan 900?
A windshield will make a huge difference for you.Thanks for the suggestions.....I definitely need some type of windshield if I start spending anytime on the interstate.
I did the pulley mode 4000 miles ago. And I am still glad I did. It is a whole different animal indeed. We have hills and mountains here in California, no problem. Uphill take-off - no problem. Take off speed? Well, if you want to rip the bolts off of your engine as you do now going 80mph on the highway, than 1 gear will get you from 0 to 30 and second from 30 to 60. That is if you reap it like you stole it. I do not actually ride like that. But I have tried.Welcome to the single biggest complaint of the 900. The highway revs are off the charts. I never did the pulley, but a ton of people stand behind it. There are front and rear pulleys, and together, they are supposed to make the bike a whole different animal.
