Sure. Suspension nirvana is just a question of money.
For "cost is no object", you could go with something like Traxxion Dynamics AK-20 Axxion fork cartridges for the front and Race Tech G3-S Custom dual IFP internal reservoir shocks w/ adjustable rebound dampening for the rear. That's what I did on my F.
Penske sells a similar setup, but you'd probably have to call them direct.
For something a bit more financially sensible, you could go with a RaceTech Gold Valve fork kit, RaceTech fork springs, Maxima 20-weight fork oil for the front and Works Performance Street Tracker rear springs for the rear. That's how I set up my R.
Both setups were designed for performance.
There are also options for air suspension, but I have no direct knowledge of them.
Fwiw, when I had my F at the dealer for some warranty work, the tech who rode it was blown away (his words) on how it handled. He said he'd never ridden a bike that handled so well.
Of course, he's was a H-D tech, so he's a) by definition not well versed on the VRSC and b) used to test riding Barca lounger's with wheels.
That discussion is almost as bad as which oil to use. Almost.
I think the Michelins take the top spot. I personally only tried Metzlers besides the Michelins, and they were really bad. I was actually surprised how much less grip they offered, and how the turn-in suffered. I ride aggressively, and I'm never trying them again at that size.
You didn't mention what model and year V-Rod you have. Sometimes a simple Handle bar and seat change will solve most of your issues.
My Vrscx, when new, put me in such a riding position that 100 miles was the most I could do without a long break. Better seat (Sundowner) and bars that allowed me to sit up straight instead of leaning forward did wonders. 600-800 miles is nothing with this setup.
I like taking long rides on my 06 VRSCA. My feet get a little uncomfortable on the stock pegs so I was thinking of adding floorboards. Several manufacturers say they do not recommend floorboards with forward controls. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why this would be a problem.
I swapped my 180 Bridgestone Excedra in the rear yesterday, for an Avon 200/55vr18 AV92.
It's been one day, and about 200 miles later, I do not like the 200.
I took a canyon today, and the bike needs to be PUSHED into a turn, it doesn't feel nimble at all.
With my 180, the bike dropped...
The wife and I have been looking for days and are having trouble finding which Harley Davidson wheels will fit a VROD, If it matters mine is an 03 VRSCA. I heard that I might be able to use a 2014 Ultra Classic front wheel?!?!?!? I just want to get some rims on it inexpensively that are not...
I have an '03 VRSCA. What a bike!!! It's mostly stock and fitted with Dunlop Sportmax tires. My question has to do with when riding in the rain or just on wet pavement, the top of the front tire (120/70x19) shoots a 3/8" dia stream of water straight out in front of the bike only to be caught...
