Working on tightening the nut behind the handle bars. Still though, even in cruiser land, the VTX has horrible lean angles so I am going to try some of the things to increase its height.

*edit* - I took off the huge opaque windshield and the bags. Physically the bike is no different but just having a different view over the bars has me throwing it around a lot more. It feels less like a bus when I'm not peering over that huge shield with no view of the front wheel or the ground its about to hit. The lean angles still blow at low speed sharp corners but its fairly capable in higher speed stuff.

no it isn't. whats with the people lying about hp and or 1/4 miles time when we have the internet at our disposal?

just googling the bike (1250cc or 1130 that 120cc isnt pushing anyone 1 seconds faster over the finish) anyone can see that it's mid 11s. if you see it at mid elevens then its not stock or someone is lying because there are 40 different sites or forums posts claiming mid 11s.
