1Benn having the bike two weeks and Been modding since I came home. Nothing really special till I got it back today.

I actually purchased a "virgin" bike that is 5 yrs old. No mods done so far to engine. Stock head pipe, stock mufflers, NO tuner of any kind.

Kinda nice to build with what I want, instead of accepting something someone done before me.


Stock seat...Before pic


Upgraded Mustang wide tripper w/ pillon


Stock CVO Shield


Freedom 12" recurve


Stock Suspension ride Height


After Progressive Monotubes -1 in front and 944 -1 in rear

My opinion on the suspension upgrades, after putting 40 miles on today, is that there is no more brake dive in front, stiffer ride, but firm. LOVE the new suspension.

Put the Mustang on when I returned from picking up from mechanic. Haven't had the time to ride this afternoon, but feel better on the butt and sits a lil lower than the stock seat. Cant wait till tomorrow to put some seat time in.

You bastard! I love those silver 2009 CVOs wish I had one!
Yes indeed, LOL... I wanted this color/ bike 6 mos after I bought my 2010 CVO SEUC. I have a silver Dodge 2500, my work truck is silver and LOVE this color combo...

This is my other ride in my stable with the RG. Now they can keep each other company.

Gave my better half an upgrade. Changed rear pegs to Kury ISO wing boards. They look kinda cool and I used the existing pegs for my Hwy Pegs...

Also cleaned up paint protection film under the new seat (showed too much), cut it back and cleaned fender. Looks nice now.

After a few decisive measures, bought a king TourPak and was gonna get painted to match, just my luck, the day I received the TourPak, There was a chopped TP on another forum being sold by a member that colormatched my bike with all the extras.

So... I sold my recent purchase of the King and bought the chopped.



Put the stock seat back on due to the wifes insistence and as the saying goes...If the wife aint happy, then nobody's happy.... Soooo, I put the stock seat back on, and the Chopped TP backrest matches the seat.

Very nice set up. I notice you have your factory seat back on. How did the Mustang seat compare to the factory seat?

I have a 09 CVO also and I want to upgrade the seat for next years riding season. Just have not figured out which route to go for a seat.

Thanks....Easyrider

Mustang seat wasn't bad for me, my better half didn't enjoy the feel when she rode, Sooo, we went back w/ stock for now.

What front tire is on the bike, it does not look like a Dunlop, after all the issues I have had with Dunlop I'd like to use a different tire, one that does not start cracking at 5K, :confused:
