Any recommendations for mods

Recommended Posts

mjdavis1994
So here's the list of parts I just ordered. Some because of a wreck and some just to upgrade ::
 
Blurple Frame
Black Rims
Drag Bar
Hand grips
Water pump cover w/ gaskets and bolts
Yoshi R77 exhaust
TST integrated tail light
Woodcraft Rearsets
Flush front turn signals
Dunlop Q3 (in the cart trying to decide on tires)
 
I want to order CRG Arrow bar end mirrors can anyone wanna chime in on if it's worth it? I had El cheapo CNC round ones but didn't use them a whole lot. Maybe I'd use them more if they didn't vibrate everywhere.
 
Also I'm wanting to get a better tire I've got the Q3 on my cart for order but wanted some feedback before I order.
 
I want to get the bike flashed and I'm dropping it off for a cage to be made from Chris Hydogen when I get back.
 
After all this is put on my mods will be as follows..
 
Windscreen
R6 Throttle Tube
Drag Bar
Yoshi R77 Full Exhaust
TST Integrated Tail Light
Flush Signals in the front
Tail Tidy
Frame sliders
Woodcraft Rearsets
Crash Cage & Sub Cage
ECU Flash
Different color tank plastics
Anything silver on the body blacked out
CNC Shortie Levers
 
I think that's all.
 
Anything y'all might recommend? I don't wanna change the sprocket and chain out till I have to and wanted to go down 1 tooth in the front up two in the rear.

The only sticker I wanna put on it is a subdued American Flag on the side cause Mercia ??  
anywho, thought about replacing the springs/oil viscosity, putting the (rebound/dampening I believe they're called) knobs on the forks and replace the rear spring however I'm not experienced enough to know where to start for what I want. I can feel it when I'm hitting a corner hard the bike feels unstable at times but I don't know whether it's the front or rear.

spend $ on suspension before anything else in my opinion. Makes the ride so much better. R6 throttle tube is up there too.

Also - if you wanna try the q3 or q3+ they are having some big rebates (75 - 100$) right now if you search around. I've heard nothing but good things about them both, but I stick with the bridgestone s21 hypersports just because i'm familiar with them and have learned their limits, and they get great mileage.

The s21 Bridgestones are working well for me so far.
 
Hordpower installed K-tech cartridges in my front forks. He also sells rear shock options.

Thanks for the tips guys! I'll be looking into some some of these I think the suspension will be next up on my list after a tune.

I'm gonna add a couple of things here:
brake pads. I'm running the CL XBK5 pads up front and like them.
Horn. I'm running the Denali sound bomb mini
Also, maybe some fork sliders.

It looks pretty well covered but steel braided brake line did come to mind, for that little extra bit of bite before you hit the corners hard.
I know it's not a bike part but since low siding occasionally accompanies hard riding I recommend these riding pants if you don't already have some. They're mesh w/Kevlar to help keep you cool and rash free. Closeout price: $39.00.  ;) I have a different pair of mesh pants and they do help with the heat.

I absolutely love the q3 for sport riding and the occasional track day. They'll wear in about 3k miles with sporty riding, but they grip like no other.
 
I second the suspension upgrades recommendation, absolutely worth every penny. Suspension, reflash, and throttle tube are probably my top 3 "ride quality" changes.
 
I have crg's and they don't vibrate at all, work great.
