2005 VRSCSE Questions

My neighbor was trying to buy an '05 SE that the deal fell through. Now...he's obsessed with finding a replacement.

What's a good/great price for a '05 VRSCSE these days?
I've looked at cycle trader and chopperexchange and the prices seem to be all over the place.

Did the '05's come with factory security?
I don't think the bike he was looking at had it, which kind of made me wonder if there had been a problem with the bike. I thought factory security was offered in '05 and subsequently would be standard on a CVO.

How much are a decent set of replacement tires (stock front and back)?
Many of these bikes are low mileage, but original tires, which are probably dried and cracking, etc.

Thanks for any feedback...I'm hoping he gets the bike so I can ride it sometimes...lol.

I had a line on one earlier in the year in the 12's. I felt like tat would have been a steal since most seem to be in the 14-15 range. You could probably get an A model for 7.5k easy though

My first V was an AW, so I'll always be an "A" man at heart! He's got more disposable income than me and want's to polish a lot of chrome...lol.

Well I have an '06 SE2 and that has the alarm with siren from the factory, but '05 I'm not sure. I liked the '06 better because of the 240 tire and blacked out engine.

Here is a nice '06 on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Harle...item43b4e32be0

Yea I would recommend the 06. The reason the 05 may be priced all over is that some people see SE and think it's worth more but to people who know v rods know the 06 has more options. I have seen some 05's sit for awhile. Just a few bucks more for better options.

'05 SE here and has factory security, slimmer rear tire and hence it's prettier, lighter and faster

More info, both SEs are 1250s, have small gas tanks (unless they have been upgraded like mine) the '05 has CNC ported cylinder heads - I don't think the '06 has that option (???) and they both have or maybe just the '06 has a hardened clutch basket. This is from memory so I may be a little off, hope not .

Ported heads where '05 only, '06 were cast having the 05 as model and if I'm not wrong the clutch basket is also hardened on the '05. Biggest changes on the '06 anyways where fatter rear tire and Harley "Brembo" brakes. Bottomline, study each and every offer individually depending on price tag, miles, condition of the bike and upgrades... IMHO a low mile bike is the best deal breaker depending obviously on price...

I just purchased my second '05 CVO after selling my orange '05 CVO back in '09 for my Ultra Glide Classic, and regretted selling that bike. So now I am back, yes the '05 comes with an alarm and a narrow rear tire as compared to the '06 CVO. For me the '05 is nibble, fast and a blast to ride. In any case the '05 or '06 bikes are awesome in my opinion.

I think everyone who sells their vrod ends up regretting it... It's the one bike I wish I had kept.

FWIW...the '05 that the deal fell through on was ~$10,300+ttl. I think he almost had a good deal...lol.

I also have an 05 VRSCSE:
1. As others said, it has factory security system
2. When I recently replaced the tires, cost of set of Metzler tires from the dealer was $444 (you can probably buy cheaper somewhere else); dealer charged $75 to mount tires on rims; I took tires off and on bike.
3. Local dealer had an orange low mileage 05 VRSCSE listed at $15,000 (dealer prices are always high).

Yes on Security system on bike and tires vary in price depending on what you put on and if you bring them wheels or they do all the work. Prices vary on 2005 se and remember with out stock pipes should be cheaper as stock pipes cost 3200 to replace at dealer.

Sure glade that I have, in a box, the stock pipes that came with my '05 CVO. $3200 price tag is insane!

The stock pipes on my 05 CVO did not look any different than stock A model pipes. Mine too are in a box since I went with V&H Double Barrels. Mine weren't Screamin ' Eagle pipes.

Several for sell here in Texas on Craigslist for $15,000. But they have been there at that price for a few weeks too.
