It depends on the riding they do. I like to do a lot of long distance riding, and I can never have enough good luggage. Tank bags, small waterproof duffel bags, sissy bar bags. Different shapes and sizes for different occasions, it's great. Perhaps an 'upgrade' to some of his/her existing stuff? Hard bags to replace soft bags, fairing to replace windshield, etc?
Or maybe even something for the rider! I'm asking Santa for new motorcycle boots this year myself. Maybe some new gear for winter riding or a nice new set of gloves or boots or something?
How about some chrome trim pieces, like brake reservoir covers, a chrome radiator cover and one for the rectifier/regulator? Then ask for Kuryakyn Ergo handgrips and some great chromed passenger footboards to replace the pegs. And for the coupe de gras, what about a great custom seat, like a Russel Daylong saddle? And if you're tired of the bike sounding "urgent" at highway speeds, a 200-series rear tire will relax things as will changing out the front or rear sprocket. Now, for some serious Santa requests, ask him (her?) to bring a good, aftermarket rear shock and a set of Progressive fork springs down the chimney with him.
Now that would be a grand Christmas for the 900 pilot, wouldn't it?
I have never rode a bike with one of those kits but I always figured they would cause problems in areas that would bring your drive wheel off the ground. But I also have never look that in depth at any of those kits.

its non exhaust side, that screws into battery, for some reason, not sure how it goes back in, anybody have a photo or suggestion?
also theres a matching screw...
When I first installed it, flashed at a normal rate, however when I started the bike the flash rate sped up. Gave it some throttle would flash faster, give it some more throttle if stop flashing would get steady stream of light.
It's been a little cold and rainy here in the PNW, so even though I had the ECU flashed and installed a week and a half ago, I never had a chance to try it out until today. Just putting through the neighborhood you couldn't feel a lot of difference, but you definitely hear a difference in the...
I have read some postings on the forum about changing out the front and rear pulleys on the 900. I am considering changing out the front pulley this winter and maybe the back also. I would like to get some feedback from those on the forum that have done one or both.
I have a 2008 900 Classic...
I know this a simple question.
