Seeing this makes me wince. Aside from safety issues... I use Finite Element Analysis software in my line of work. A stock V-Rod was not designed to handle that kind of stress load. Just a few of those wheelies and your V-Rod won't be the same - I promise you. You're just loosening up all those nice tight tolerances and potentially creating stress fractures.
Here's a simple little simulation of a control arm from a CART race car taking excessive abuse... similar to that of a heavy V-Rod front end exerting forces on the triple tree and forks assembly from a wheelie slam.
Blue areas are within factor of safety... Red is... Well, Red is bad!
PS: If I had some of the V-Rod parts , like the triple tree modeled in 3D and I knew what the approx loads were for dropping the front wheel down after a wheelie, I could find out just how bad it would be.
No it can be done just not by any members of this forum! :whack: At the track"sticky surface" I can"get the front wheel in the air"pretty easily.On the street it's much harder and believe me I try! It just spins!
