Well, So far I have put on a K&N air filter, vance&hines classic ii's , might get an upgraded battery...although that's not much of a mod, just struggles to turn over a bit, but starts great once it does.

Not sure what else I can do, will have to do some research I guess! Any suggestions without breaking the bank?

I've got a 2000 1100 Classic and am about to purchase a Mustang seat for it. I'm trying to decide if I need the driver backrest or not. How do you feel riding with yours? Anyone else reading this who may have experience with AND without: what are your thoughts?

Thanks all!

Funny timing, I just took mine off 2 days ago. Never really liked it, came with the bike, my friend raved about it...but it just didn't do it for me. Plus I like the look of it much better without personally. But that's just me
