Lifting the tank allows you to tuck the main wire harnes up under the tank. It also provides more airflow around the engine, and giving it that old school flavor. 

You can see the plastic wire cover on the box behind the bike. It hung down between the “backbone” and engine. 

Exhaust does not sit on the peg.

A couple friends have discouraged me from the Bolt and Vulcan S due to their lack of power 60hp 41tq... A friend strongly suggested getting a Harley 1200 sportster/nightster...so I'm in the market for one.

I really like customizing things... Guns/Trucks/Mustangs ETC.

 

 Welcome  

I would get  A  Honda Nighthawk 450 If you’ve never rode a moped

Just a quick update here....

 

I passed my basic riders course and now have my endorsement.

I bought a 2016 Sportster 48 with 50miles on it.

So far--- I've installed V&H Short Shots, V&H FP3, 2in tank lift, coil and ignition relocation and LED headlight. The bike now has 82 miles. LOL

Cooling the gas will make a denser charge, thereby making more power!!!:easy_button:

I also messed with the turn signal...went from Amber lense/Clear bulb to Clear lense/Amber bulb....I used stealth bulbs that appear silver and light up Amber.

That, my friend was PURE sarcasm!   However, raising the gas tank will add fuel pressure and enrich the air/fuel mixture....and make more power!  :facepalm:

Nice bike!  I had a Vulcan s for a while, and honestly it handled better and is faster than you think.  Much faster than that sportster I'd be willing to bet, but being a new rider, fast is not important (did I just say that?)
