Take a look @ the Rockford Fosgate head deck. Not cheap but, well worth it. Highly functional and looks great.

I had an 04 huckleberry.    Great bike. Loved it and still miss it. I did bars and poly bushings and I had much more unwanted vibration. I don't think it's a bad idea to change them but I would stay with the rubber. In fact I did go back to the rubber ones. As far as speakers, from what I remember they are 4ohm. The stock radio has an integral amp. You have many options to upgrade. Or just go with new 6.5" speakers with adapters. I do think speakers would be a great improvement.   Stuart

Recommend against the Poly bushings put the stock ones back in no matter what they tell you the vibration isn’t worth it.

Typically the numbers from a cam change, pipes and air cleaner yielded about 103-106 torque and 88-96 hp. 

Congrats on the Pumpkin - we had 2, but sold one to a buddy about a year ago.  Still have the hot rod in the garage.

Ok yall school me on handlebars. I'm looking at khrome werks 10". My clutch line seems like it has slack, brake lines not as much. Has anyone got any direct experience with this?

With Wild Ones 575's I needed the longer brake line kit.

I had Hog Tunes in the bike for awhile.
They were OK, still have them in a box up in the attic.

I was pretty much under the impression that a longer brake line was a must. I'm leaning towards khrome werks 10' bars. I'm also thinking ditching the factory radio/speakers & going with something else & 6.5's. The rockford looks nice but is more than I'd want to pay for just a reciever. I'm thinking maybe the kit from fat head cycles at the moment. Either way it'll probably be in the spring.

Bike still looks great. Definitely worth holding on to. Remember that back in those days you didn't get much slack in cables, wiring, clutch and brake lines. So get ready to buy new ones. I did the 575 s on mine and I had to extend everything.   Good luck. Stuart.
If I remember correctly. I thought the inner fairing came in painted black.  Was yours changed?

I’m actually in the process of installing khrome werks 10” bagger bars now. I put a +4 brake line on & it looks like I should have plenty of wire & that the clutch cable will work. I’ll know for sure in a few hours. Inner fairing could have definitely been painted by a previous owner.

Inner fairing did come painted black from factory, and yes previous owner definitely had it painted... which BTW looks good. :2vrolijk_21:
