I'm just wondering if there are Stryker owners out there that are going to leave their Stryker stock! The 3 road bikes I had before this Stryker I left alone and did no mods or additions. I never even had thoughts of changing them. This bike I got mod fever and having a hard time stopping. QUESTION: Will these Strykers be worth less in 10 years if we want to sell? I loved this bike as it was when I first saw it online and bought it on site when I saw it at dealer and I never even rode it stock! I do have somewhat of an excuse, I had 3 months Winter weather to look at it and think about what I could do. I am just wondering if there is any Stryker owners here on this forum that plan on keeping theirs stock.

Not sure if this will apply to the Stryker, but BHodge posted up on the Raider forum that the used Raiders actually increased in price from the previous year. Personally I don't think well done mods are going to make a bit of difference. Plus you've got to personalize your bike or is just like the others.

Re: Cherry vs "Uh" not Cherry

Yeah, I'll probably leave the Stryker alone. I actually like almost everything about it the way it is. I have a '83 Harley Shovelhead that I've ridden the past 11 years and most of the work done on it by me was repairs and upkeep. I did replace the pipes and a few other things but I mostly kept busy with keeping it running. Top end, new tappets and hydraulic lifters, solenoid, clutch etc, etc, etc. It runs perfectly now and I wouln't hesitate to take it on a 50 mile trip. Ha Ha Actually, it would probably do fine on a much longer ride but it is like a dinasaur compared to the Stryker. Besides the Stryker is infinitely more sexy !

Hey Canyon1, That's completely cool with me! I have the stock pic of the Stryker in the warehouse for my desktop. So I see it at least a dozen times a day and think wow what a bike. It makes me wonder if I should have left mine alone. I do like the mods I have done though. Just second gues myself once in awhile. Take care friend!

more personalized and different. Theres a lot to work with here and if we can help.....

Sometimes I may think that I should have left it stock, but I can't stand being the same.
I like different and unique. Now if I ever got a vmax.....I'd leave it alone....... ??? ::) yeah right.

Absolutely not. I have already added Arlen Ness Alt Teardrop side mirrors. I plan on changing the exhaust to Cobra Speedster Swept Exhaust within 2 months after I gather the money. I want to move the license plate to the side and get ride of the rear blinkers and make them low profile or integrated into the brake light. Reaper front fender for sure. Air intake and definitely a fuel processor down the line.

While this bike is really hot stock, there is no way I can leave it as is.
