XV950 up date

PostAuthor: rsvirago » Sat Apr 04, 2015 10:44 am

Its been awhile since someone has posted in this section so here goes. Last spring I posted about my first trip on my 950 and made mention of a Mustang seat. Well I installed one a couple of weeks ago with the backrest. Haven't been able to make any trips out of town with it because of weather, but, the time I have spent on it I can say so far so good, kind of feels like I'm in my chair watching the tube.

I also intalled a Vance and Hines slip on muffler. Since there are no mods to the intake the claim is I do not need to install a FMS because of the location of the sensor. The motorcycle runs great so the FMS at this point is not required. There is some "popping" on decel indicating a slightly lean condition when backing off the throttle, so an FMS is in the future.
My biggest fear is when I die my wife sells my toys for what I said I paid for them.

I'll post another pic when I have the chance. This one shows the seat with the motorcycle on the Titan lift I ordered from JP Cycles the same time I ordered the seat.
