    Have searched the forums a bit but wanted to get a list of must have performance upgrades for a 2009 vision. What to put more pep in her acceleration. Thanks, Mark

    Buy a faster motorcycle and don't throw your money away.

    Maximus, Lloydz Top Filter, Lloydz 501 cams, Ragin Cajun mufflers, 1/4 turn throttle ring, proper dyno tune. Done.

    btw - Welcome to the forum. Introduce yourself and post a pic of that beautiful machine.

    Plenty of us are like you and just wanted a little more without getting crazy and that's easy to do on a Vision. Don't listen to Boringdodge as he's a sourpuss when it comes to adding mods. No matter what you do to a Victory he will say it's slow. He likes to compare apples to oranges..... Plus he has a XC so he can't add a top filter. I think he's jealous. Lol!

    md2420 has the full list but just adding a top filter, pipes, and tuner will give you better response, smoothness, and performance. After that cams is the way to go if you really want to pep it up. Cams will put you around 115 for both HP and TQ.

    Closer to 120 / 120 on a vision. I’m 115/115 on a X-Country. Either way for not a lot of money with the parts and service mentioned above your gain is roughly 30hp from stock.

    And as highly educated as he is, doesn't know the difference between a turbo charger and a blower.

    Thanks guys for the input. Will start looking into those mods. What are your thoughts on the timing wheel? It seems to be pretty well regarded from what I have read.

    Go with a Maximus tuner and it's not needed

    Ok thanks. And have read a lot about pulling thr O2 sensors. What are your thoughts?

    Sorry, one other follow up. Do I start with the tuner or does it make more sense to do other mods first and the refine with the tuner. Really I am just trying to get a little more pull from a stop and heard the timing wheel gives you that in the low end.

    The timing wheel and the 3/4 turn throttle by themselves are likely the best mods, ever. The timing wheel adds a few foot pounds of torque, all below 2500. Exactly where the 106" could use a boost. From that point onwards, I'd suggest doing the PCV, cams, Vision air cleaner mods, mufflers and a dyno tune all at the same time. As has been stated, if you go the Maximus route, you don't need to purchase the timing wheel at all. On my CCT, the O2 sensors have been relocated to a box on a shelf in my garage since the cams and PVC were installed. I 'think', with the Maximus, you leave the O2 sensors alone.

    If I were starting fresh today, I'd most certainly go the Maximus route. Because it's a direct reflash of your oem ECU instead of an added on box next to your ECU.

    Also, if I had a Vision, I'd follow the advice of @VicVisionBulldog to the letter. He and other Vision owners REALLY know these bikes. As an added benefit, they're free with their humor, knowledge and encouragement to others.

    You will need a tuner regardless. Not being a Vision pilot, only my opinion, but filters, good pipes, a UD pulley and a good tune would put a grin on your face.

    @NOEMTZ sells all this stuff including the Maximus. He can tune it for you also. Get ahold of him, he has many happy customers here.

    Awwwwwwww I knew you weren't over it yet! LOL! All that money down the drain and still slow. That DID leave a mark!

    Just remember IMBatmon misery loves company and these guys that have thrown their money away want more to do the same just to have another slow motorcycle they can post HP and TQ numbers. Be careful as they'll probably try to sell you a shirt with dyno graphs printed on them!. They have LPS (Little Pecker Syndrome). SAVE YOUR MONEY! Your Vision has enough power already!
