Christmas has come and gone, now I sit here writing to you just minutes away from the new year. As promised, I can now inform you of my surprise gift, a HyperCharger. My "better half" also gave me a new set of Flanders 35 degree dragbars. Both are gloss black in color, and compliment the midnight custom VStar beautifully. The HyperCharger, along with the adapter for the 650, was purchased from Phat Performance,and at $292.00, was much cheaper than their competitors. The focus here was performance and the HyperCharger added an incredible amout of speed, that is, once much larger jets were used besides the ones included with the kit.The Flanders dragbars we picked up off of Ebay for $75.00. Style was the name of the game for this buy. Sitting lower and with just as much pull back as the stock bars, the Flanders bars not only add to the sleek profile of the VStar, I also did not sacrifice any comfort in achieving the look I was trying to obtain. I am completely satisfied with the direction my bike is going and my recent purchases however, the wheels in my brain are already spinning toward my next modification. Until next time, have a happy and safe new year.
