Just got this amazing ride, 2006 Night Rod with less than 5k miles. It's in incredible condition. Owner took great care of it, but passed away, and his brother was looking for a good owner, and let it go at a great price, with an extra set of wheels and tires.

I am working on breaking down what all upgrades he did to it. Does anyone know what upgrades you see on it. I'm still trying to learn all the distinctions. It appears the exhaust is upgraded, but I'm not sure? It sounds amazing, and is of course crazy fast.

What upgrades would you do first? Mostly I wish it was a fully blacked out version, but I don't think they did those til a few years later. Possibly I'll drive this for a year and watch for one of those and upgrade later on.

Congrats, that is a nice clean bike.
The tail light is not stock. The signal lenses are smoked (stockers were amber and red) and the mirrors have been replaced.
The pegs and grips look stock though from the pictures.

Looks like he mounted a set of highway pegs up front due to the bike having mid mount controls.

A popular upgrade is to go to a 240 rear tire on the back but that would be costly and maybe not worth it if you aren't keeping the bike for the long haul.

As already mentioned, apart from exhaust, the signal lenses, tail light and mirrors are not stock.
It has also had the CVO SE centre radiator panel with the chin spoiler and grill fitted. Plus rack and backrest as accessories.

First thing I did to my 2006 VRSCD Night Rod was put on a Harley Davidson Daymaker LED headlight. The stock headlight is very bad.
Then I added an exhaust, tuner, windshield, and saddlebags. Lastly, Progressive rear shocks and front fork springs really tightened up handling.

Congratz! That is one gorgeous bike. And you got yourself a supertrapp v5 exhaust with it, cant ask for a better 2-1 for a vrod. Ive been playing with this exhaust for a while now and i found my sweetspot with 10 discs and "topless" mod. With stock software. Greetings and enjoy it!

I think you missed the side covers that appear to be from a newer VRSCDX ...... earlier ones were slotted like the ones on Bikerboy's, not mesh.......
Add on the water pump hose cover. DX too. ;)

This was helpful, yeah I like those Highway pegs so far.
Just checked into the 240 rear option at a shop, but I need to do some more homework to figure out how to do that. If anyone knows a thread feel free to connect.

You obviously know your rods, thanks! I was curious I hadn’t seen this seat anywhere else, but I like it, low profile but still helps make sure my wife doesn’t fly off the back when I crank it.

Oh man, that’s a great set up, is your windshield quick release? And what bags are those? They match the style well.

I’m looking into to light as well. I heard the Harley Davidson light was quite expensive like $4-500, anyone done a cheaper option that still worked well?

Thanks I was trying to figure if this was a solid exhaust or not, it sounds so great to me compared to other V-Rods I’ve heard.
I’ll have to look into what you mean by 10 discs and topless, but glad to hear a fellow supertrapp fan on here.

Windshield is not quick release, tightens to handlebars with Allen bolts. But I have no interest in removing it. Once you experience how much better it is to have a windshield, you'll leave it on. Much better at highway speeds.
Bags are factory, and quick release. I bought my HD Daymaker used for $200 on EBay. But I've heard Hogworkz are good.

Nice looking bike bikerboy.
What windshield do you have on it ?
Been looking for one for my 2007 Nightrod.
I like the way it attaches to the bike, looks real sturdy.
