I've had my Nightster for a year now and have 12,000 miles on it.
The first thing i done was place V&H short shots (black).
V&H fuel pak and a screaming eagle intake.
And relocate my speedo to the left side of my fuel tank.(not in pics)

Didn't like the look of the Sportster dog dish Cover so I replaced it with a Kuryakyn Hypercharger.

Is it possible to rig up the butterflies to the throttle cable so they acctuate based on that?

They are from my phone only camera I had at the time sorry.

And to the other question about the butterflies on the throttle cable. I have read that you can.

Not sure whats next thinking of a tank lift and wire tuck to clean up the look.
I have the brackets for the lift just not sure if I want to yet.

You guys that want a Hyper Charger, There is an easy fix for the butterflies. Simply plug the intake with a rag and drill/tap a hole in the intake for a fitting to hook the vacume line. Your engine makes plenty of vacume, you just need access. Myself I do not want to add weight to my scoot,Its got enough trouble hauling my butt around.

was there a good power gain from the pipes and intake?

The pipes had a gain but I also installed a screaming eagle intake at the same time.
But didn't like the ham can on the side of my bike so I went with the Hyper Funnel I mean charger.
I will leave the charger until I get fed up with the rain issue. But will try to avoid the rain anyway.
:doh :doh :doh

Since the post I installed some short shots,big sucker intake, Terminal Velocity (computer programmer) and a 3 inch tank lift. Really happy with the bike, now i just got to decide on apes or drag bars.

I'm not a fan of ape hangers, deodorant is like what 2 or 3 bucks a stick. Other than that I dig your bike.

Never heard mention of rain issue or thought of it that blows my plans for a hyper charger. I always miss judge how long it will hold off and get stuck in a down pour.

Nice bike, ditto on the picture quality.
Looks like you also upgraded the brake lines to SS lines.

Nice looking scoot. what do you plan on doing next? I have Hooker Troublemaker pipes and Screaming Eagle Heaver Breather and the Harley Super Tuner on my '08. Had her Dynoed last week and started on the dyno at 74.28 HP and 73.28 ft-lbs Torque. When she left the dyno she was putting out 83.16 Hp and 80.22 ft-lbs Torque
