Default 2016 Roadster CX - Club Style Build

Hello all. Since I picked up my Roadster in June 2016, I have ridden it hard around twisties
with my group with mostly knee dragging kids on sports bikes but I just like to be the guy on a
Harley that keeps up with them. Better to be fast on a slow bike than slow on a fast bike.

I started adding and changing things on my Roadster which are geared more towards function.
I want to share what I have done so far and give others some ideas.

Biltwell 6" Murdock Risers with Biltwell Track Bars and Grips for better
ride position, handling and control. Used Accutronix to relocate the Speedo.

Barkbuster Storm Handguards Set. This helps a lot here in NY, specially this
time of year where its cold and windy. Extends my riding time.
The shield can be removed or changed for summer.

West Eagle Fairing - Purpose is to hide my cables and riser behind it to
look clean from the front.

LED Off Road Spot Light - For riding at night.

Arlen Ness Magnaflow 2-1 exhaust and Stage 2 Air Breather with FP3 FuelPak. Much better performance and sound.

4.5 Stock Harley Fuel Tank. More fuel, more riding, less filling.

Saddlemen Cafe Gel Seat. Really comfortable and locks me in the bike.

Burly Sissy Bar for the passenger but mostly for strapping my stuff when
I go to work or long rides.

Any more modifications I do, I will post it up here in the future.


Day I picked up the Roadster from the dealer.


Stock all the way.


What it looks like now after modifications.

Good work and sweet ride! I really like the 4.5 gallon tank on the Roadster. I don't think it takes anything away from the overall style of the bike.

Awesome looking bike, Kingkoopa! We're sure that it sounds great, too with our Fbomb pipe on there!

Looks sweet! I did it to my sporty before. Didn't get to as many upgrades as with my dyna, but was set up pretty good

Now that is a high drool factor Roadster! How is the stock suspension?
Imo it would look even better with red spark plug wires and stainless brake lines.

Like what you've done especially the led bar below the headlight for more visibility. Could you post the details - who makes it etc and show a close up pic of the mounting to the forks or triple trees please? Hard to tell with the one pic you have.

Thanks. Roadster's shocks are great adjusted it to my weight. Compared to my friends 883, whenever I hit a bump it's a punch to my chest. It's at the bottom of my "to mod" list.

Look up Off Road LED Lights on Amazon, it's $16 for two comes with mounting hardware. One bolt mounted to the bottom tree. Got it on July, still bright up to this day.
