I would have to say the yoshimura exhaust is my favorite mod to date.  It has just this incredible roar when u snap the throttle.  But you can also ride it quietly if you accelerate more slowly.  It honestly sounds better than I expected.  So I bought the performance package from 2wheeldynoworks for $915 where you get an ecu flash and the yosh exhaust.  I put in the newly flashed ecu at the same time I was doing the exhaust.  When I rode the bike for the first time after those two things were done, I was blown away by the all around performance improvement.  The bike is on steroids now lol.  So i guess there is actually two mods i really like!!

Hey man, glad you like my bike!  Visit the beautiful state of Wisconsin and you will have all the beer and cheese you can handle!  I just checked out those integrated taillights from TST.  Pretty sharp looking.  Do people ever keep their rear turn signals with the integrated taillight?  Or does that look kind of goofy when your turn signal is on..?

I kept my turn signals when I installed the TST. I don't find it goofy looking... though I can't guarantee other's don't. 

But not¬†a concern.¬†The only person I need to please is me. ūüĎć

Not everyone thinks alike so with that in mind I have to say that as far as a cleaner, sharper looking bike goes the bike is just that with the TST alone but then there becomes the question about visibility to others. Personally, I would sacrifice a little of the cool looks for my safety and keep the other signals in place. I have the TST light myself and personally, I don't feel 100% about people seeing that small, integrated, unseparated turn signal, especially on a bright day at distance. I'm currently looking to put regular rear turn signals back on mine because my gut tells me to do so. It's a personal thing, do whatever you think is best or pleases you.

I appreciate the advice Beemer!  I will be leaving my turn signals on.  Safety is numero uno!!
