i know im guna get flamed for not searching harder but..

im looking to get a used vrscdx and i was only looking at 08 and newer ones because i want the 5 gal tank and a 1250cc engine and the 240mm rear tire.. then i read on a thread that some 07's had the 1250cc in them... how do i tell what engine it has in it?

also what are the major diffferences between the 07 and 08 vrscdx's ?

im only asking b/c ive found some smoking deals on 07's with under 5k miles on them....

none of the 07 has 1250 engine other than VRSCX. I believe the only major differences are the O2 sensors and 120cc more on 08+.

Andy and Brett are right on the differences. ABS was an option in 08.

There's never been anything bigger than a 240 offered. 07 DXs, Nightrod Specials, are 1130s.

This link will give you the basics about which tank/engine /when http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harley-Davidson_VRSC
Aftermarket tanks can be had to bring you up to 5 gal. Afternoon of work/fun times and $400 will do that. Some digging around will get you a budget 240 rear setup. 1130cc or 1250cc little to choose from in general performance. Depends what kind of deal you can get.

A few of us are in NJ, if you need a second set of eyes to check over a bike, just ask.
