Hi everyone,

I just picked up a 2008 1200N with 1900 miles on her. Bone stock. Went thru a sport bike phase before this bike, although it is the second sportster I've owned (1st one was a 2001 1200 with nearly every screamin eagle performance upgrade available).

I just ordered a Power Vision tuner from DK. I figured this is the tuner to have since it is so highly customizable, doesn't have to stay on the bike, doesn't require a PC (all I own is Macs), and doubles as a diagnostic code reader.

I'm looking for some used black exhaust with little success. If I can't find any I'll probably end up getting the black V&H 2-into-1 (best combo of looks, sound, and price imo).

After that, probably a stage 1 air cleaner of some kind (HD Screamin Eagle seems ok). I don't care to change the stock a/c box, so I'll just be looking for a relatively inexpensive high flow filter.
