I picked up this extremely clean '03 1600 Classic about a week ago. Really low miles and set up with some of the typical upgrades: Cobra pipes, Power Commander, Hypercharger, Corbin seat, Jardine forward controls, and a bunch of Kuryakyn pieces (grips, mirrors, taillight, etc)

The combination of forwards and the Hypercharger didn't work with my short legs, so I reinstalled the factory floorboards. Seriously considering swapping the Hypercharger for a BAK. Not real crazy about the looks of the HC.

Welcome from the Macon area, neighbor. Grats on the bike. I'm workin to get the engine back together on mine. The weight savings with the no-engine option made it go too fast for me, so I have to put the engine back in to slow it down below light speed, doncha know.

Don't underestimate the difference a few hundred pounds makes in the handling, as well. My previous bike was a Royal Star Venture, so the weight difference between it and the Vulcan makes the latter seem positively spritely. :LOL:

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Beautiful bike. Yeah, I'd chuck the hypercharger. They're designed for drag racing, not street riding. They look cool so they are a popular swap but you will have a hard time getting it tuned to a happy medium that works decent for daily riding.
