Well, I'm no longer a member of the kawi family. I sold my custom to a guy last weekend, because I bought a 2011 victory Vegas 8 ball a few weeks ago. As much as I wanted to keep it, and have 2 bikes, I just couldn't do it financially. Plus I was afraid the Vulcan would never get ridden again! I'm still gonna visit here...maybe I can offer help or advise, as I picked up a lot of knowledge of the 900 and many accessories. I want to thank everyone that offered advise to me, this is an awesome forum.
