Attention Deficit V-Rod

We have been working for a while now on a slammed, chopped, supercharged, nitrous injected V-Rod which is finally coming together. I though I would share the progress on here.

It has been a lot more work (and a lot more $$) than I had originally planned, but it has been fun.

First we started with an Orange SE2, chopped the rear fender and added front and rear slam kits.

The rear swing arm was sealed up and the compressor fed into it using it as a storage tank so that the air rides are pretty instant and there is no need to constantly run the compressor.

nice work and cant wait to see the finished product..

Why not start with a stock V that's isn't as rare and special???? and cheaper....

I wish i could afford one that's all,.....

Next up we ordered some Exotic Chopper pipes.. They look great, but - and it is a big but - they were un-useable.

They had no heat shields, which meant that they burnt through a pair of jeans everytime the bike was ridden and that by the time the bike had been dyno tuned, they were already blue.

40 hours in the fabricators shop later and they had made us a set of custom heat shields. These work very well.

I didnt buy the SE with the intent of chopping it, it is just that was the bike I had when I got bored..

I have learned my lesson though and the other V - Rod we are modding was picked up for a little over $5k as it had been dropped.

(Yes that is Joes airbox cover - just to keep junk from getting in there. I sold the original tins on Ebay which paid for the rear air ride!)

We then had a bit of a disaster with a paint-job-gone-wrong and handle bars that were too wide so we can skip over that and on to the NX system..

We ditched the Boss Noss and went for a Direct Port Wet Nitrous System by Nitrous Express. This meant drilling into the cylinder heads. Definately no going back at this point. Joe is a nitrous guru.. anyone who can put an 1130cc VROd into the mid nines with a bit of juice is very welcome to put together a system for me!

And then it started to get fun when this arrived from Rich at TTS. Great workmanship, the supercharger kit is really well put together, all the parts have a great quality feel about them. So of course we set about chopping this as well..

After a lot of head scratching we decided that the system as designed, whilst it might be functional, upset the flow of the bike and hid that nice "V" which to me is a defining part of a bike. I really wanted to keep the cylinders on show as I had plans for them (more on that later) and also didnt want anything that just looked like a bolt on kit. Obviously at this stage they are all rough.. final version will all be chromed and powder coated - this was just for fit and function tests.

So we went from this..



To this..

I assume you are going to have a custom air box cover built to clear the intercooler.

We have had one "almost finished" for about a month now.. The guys at the shop took a mold of a cover which means we can make as many reproductions as we like. Basicaly it is going to have to have an intercooler scoop like a car. This will let us fit the IC in and keep air flowing through it.

We also have a load of other mods such as:

26t Front pulley
V&H Autoshifter
Engine Brace
AIM Clutch
Removed the dials

This was is them making the mold:
