What has been your favorite CVO Breakout Mod?
« on: November 04, 2016, 10:35:12 AM »

I know everyone would probably state that their favorite upgrade would be pipes, but how about beyond pipes?

I'm looking for the next mod to make on my bike, could be big mod or small upgrades.

What do you think?

Was it quick and easy install?

I installed one the other day. Super quick and easy. Only had a couple issues.
1. The wiring sheathing was too thick to fit back into the rear fender struts. And with the removal of the rear brake light structure, there is no clean way to mount the wiring back to the seat. I had to use 3m tape and so far so good (other than it looks bad if you look up under the rear fender).
2. The epoxy has a super quick life cycle. Mix it fast and apply it under 3 minutes. The good thing about it tho, there is plenty of epoxy if you don't get it right the first time.
I would highly recommend not just peeling it and sticking it. Make sure you position it correctly. This light will be painfully difficult to remove once installed.
I do have to say the electrical connector are super fantastic.

+1 for Custom Dynamics lighting.

I put their Dynamic Ringz front and rear and replaced the rear reflector with the LED light bar.
Safety AND cool looks.. can't beat that.

One of my most dependable changes was tires, went from stock Dunlop to Metz me880 marathon with a 260/40 rear 120/70 front profile. Turn in and flip is much more in tune with my riding, consistently felt myself forcing the bike to turn or lean while stock.  Also of note, I have less wear on the Metz after 2k miles than i did on the Dunlops at 500 miles.

How long do these tires last?

  I can't speak to that as this is my first set and I'm only 2k miles into them. Tread life will really come down to your riding style, my Dunlops were breaking traction and thus getting eaten up faster than these. Generally speaking harder compound will last longer if it can grip in the conditions you ride. The Me880 compound is similar to the center(firm) portion on my Michelin pilotpower3 from another bike, and more soft than the stock Dunlop.
  The main point was I suggest the tire profile: the 120/70 front makes the bike more responsive to me than the 130/60 that was stock, and the slightly larger rear may help keep planted under throttle.
  My reasons for the Me880s were 1-softer compound, 2 better profile, 3-both front & rear are radial construction; I'm hesitant to mix bias-ply and radials which is what stock did. In the 2000 miles I've used them, the front performs as described above and rear plants/grabs better than stock. I haven't felt my tail end sliding out on me in curves since the change; how much of that is attributed to compound vs size will have to wait until I run out the tires. Hope that helps

So far I would have to say the best mod was installing 16 inch Burleigh High Ball bars. I am just a tad over 6 foot, but only with a 30 inch inseam, so my height comes from a long torso. Needless to say, when seated on the bike the stock bars were never right for me. Had to lean forward and roll my shoulders forward a bit and that never felt good after a couple hours in the saddle (thank you enlarged shoulder socket)

The new bars fixed that. Nice position when seated, and oddly enough I seem to catch less air on the highway.Maybe because I am not curled forward cupping the wind. No idea why, but a much more relaxed ride.

I would go so far as to say that the bars just barely edged out the dyno tune as far as favorite mods/upgrades.

Any more pictures of the seat and details on where you purchased it?

I paid close to $1700. The Japanese stingray insert was $700 alone.

Thread resurrection time as I am a recent newbie and have carried out quite a few modifications to my 2017 Breakout.

No 'favourite' persay but all have been carried out with deliberation and consideration. Personally I am please with them all to-date.

Rizoma Tomok Mirrors and Oberon adjustable levers both brake and clutch. Couldn't believe after spending so much on a scoot adjustable levers were not included in the deal. The European standard mirrors fell short of the end of the bars and I found I had a huge blindspot.

Shotgun shock fitted. As with the standard suspension and the 260mm rear fender and tyre I would have needed to fit a suspension bump-stop to prevent fouling.

My tank lift kit. Raises the front of the tank 1 1/2” allowing for better airflow on top of engine, easier to clean, and looks better IMO. Will fit tall riders like myself better too. Detracts very little from gas capacity.

Since I can't really think of much you can do a CVO, I would say my V&H shorty pro pipe and my 12 inch ape hangers. May do something with the seat, not sure just yet.

Thanks, am considering matching the front fender paint to the rear. As mentioned the standard mirrors left me with an horrendous blind spot as they didn't come to the end of the bars. The Rizoma Tomoks now fitted took a bit of getting used to as once fixed they cannot be adjusted on the go. The blind spot has been eradicated but overall the rear view has been reduced, for me it was a successful compromise and they look a damn sight cooler too than the originals.

I'm happy to do it - the goal was to do the whole thing with original HD parts and only use accessories where necessary and sensible.

To keep the original look and to optimize the driving dynamics, a turbine wheel 3.5 x 19" in contrasting chrome is used.
To keep the chassis geometry balanced, stanchions of an FXDWG are used with dip tubes of an FXDF.

The purpose of the conversion is to further improve the proven suitability for everyday use and touring - the bike has already seen a lot and will see a lot more...

I'm happy to do it - the goal was to do the whole thing with original HD parts and only use accessories where necessary and sensible.

To keep the original look and to optimize the driving dynamics, a turbine wheel 3.5 x 19" in contrasting chrome is used.
To keep the chassis geometry balanced, stanchions of an FXDWG are used with dip tubes of an FXDF.

The purpose of the conversion is to further improve the proven suitability for everyday use and touring - the bike has already seen a lot and will see a lot more...


Thanks for that, i would like to keep the factory 21" front wheel that came factory on my bike, what did you go back to a 19" front wheel was it to do with clearance

Am i right in thinking you used the Wide Glide upper fork tubes & the Fat Bob lowers that you had polished & chromed

what internals do you have in them as i was looking at the tricor internals to stiffen the front up and improve braking

Only with an original HD 19" turbine contrast chrome front wheel a double disc brake can be realized with the same original look.

Correct, I used the original fork tubes of a Wild Glide. I used original HD chrome plated lower legs for a Fat Bob.
For the internals I used springs and valves from Racetech for the 2014 Breakout.

When using this longer fork tubes, the smaller front wheel balances itself out and the ground clearance remains more or less the same,
but with better handling...
The setup can prove itself on my next, second trip to the North Cape...
