Mid-rise bars
Crash bars-DIY
Hi performance A/c
Good LED headlight, find one you like, there are a lot of good ones, all pretty much in the same price range and super easy to install.
Good cleaning products (Blue Magic for the Chrome, Moto Black for anything black- these products will keep your bike looking brand new(

So far my favorite upgrades have been the Powerband Plus Audio, Kurakyn brake pedal to replace the little peg, and Ciro3d Big Ass cup holder.

I’ve also added:
Heel Shifter
Passenger Floorboards
Garage Door Opener
Stage 1 HFAC
Stage 2 Cams

Next up is a Klock Werks Flare windshield and then I should be satisfied.. until the next shiny thing catches my eye.

I would add rear crash bars and a "vizi-tec.com" pulsating brake lights.

Kuryakyn heal shifter. Personally I like it better than the Indian since it doesn’t take up any floorboard space.

And it’s threaded for the Indian Select heal peg.

That one is slick, I do have to pay attention to where I put my foot when I come up from a stop now. I went with the Indian only because they were offering 500 off 2k purchase. How much did that one run you compared to 155 for the Indian?

It’s $69.99 for black, $79.99 for chrome. You also have to buy the Indian heal peg separately.

Just adding this for anyone else looking for upgrades:

I just purchased a grasshopper rider backrest. $82 shipped. Includes the bracket and pad. Once I install I’ll update, but for that price, you can’t beat it!

everything else I've done I love but they where power/ beauty/ curb appeal. not must have
