April12th, 2016: We are very pleased to announce that Unlimited Engineering is now a sponsor of VRIDETV. We had their first generation 5 gallon tank in our original 2003 V-Rod camera bike and truly believe that it is the best upgrade you can do to a 02-06 V-Rod.
So we are very excited that Unlimited Engineering has sent their newest version, the 2020D, Five gallon conversion kit for Project Vrod. That's right we're building another 2003, 100th anniversary VRSCA Harley Davidson Vrod.
This tank holds an astonishing 53% more fuel than the stock tank! The majority of motorcycle riders are fortunate enough to have this type of fuel capacity already but for 2002-2006 Harley-Davidson owners we are not so lucky. The V-Rod's stock tank capacity is only 3.4 gallons with a max range of approximately 160 kilometers at 100kph.
Visit Unlimited Engineering's website to see their full line of performance parts.
TDMC Customs has already played a big part in our Project Vrod so having them as an official sponsor of VRIDETV is outstanding. I've already talked with the operations manager and have confirmed that we will be at the 20th annual Trev Deeley Show n shine on June 12th 2016 and Project Vrod will be undergoing a transformation during the event....
Founded in 1982, Progressive Suspension has evolved into the largest aftermarket motorcycle suspension manufacturer in the United States as well as a top tier supplier of suspension components to domestic OE customers. Our suspension systems can be found on premier customs, production trikes and just about any bike that's doing big miles across the US and for that matter the world.
A team of ride control trained engineers use state of the art computers, shock dynos and real world testing to create the ideal suspension platform for your bike. From there, our state of the art manufacturing facility assembles and in many cases dyno tests each unit before it leaves the factory. Our quality control systems touch on each component from assembly to final stages and nothing gets in or out of the building without passing a rigorous inspection.
AMERICA’S PREMIER MANUFACTURER OF MOTORCYCLE SUSPENSION
