- new seat cover
- some DIY carbon wrap on frame
- Rear reservoir delete w/ ATE super blue fluid
- Chrome front reservoir cap
- shorty levers
- new brake pads all round
- new plugs, rad flush, air filter, AMzoil syththetic change and engine/carb check
- new exhaust ( Danmoto GP style ) now I have 3 different exhausts for this bike...
- new exhaust hanger

I stuffed some steroids down the fuel tank to see if I could get some real mods but my kickstand went limp and the bike fell over.

No fetish, I just stick with one brand of cordless tools because I hated always dealing with 3 or 4 different battery types and chargers. I also used to live close to a Dewalt repair depot that always had stuff on sale so I just got all my cordless tools and a few others from them.

Some DeWalt stuff is crap IMO - like some of their air compressors..

A power tool never touches my bikes. I dont even use my air guns to take off axle bolts.

I was debating it but it's kind of grown on me. I originally was going to raise the Pirelli lettering on the ruber and make it red or white on the sidewalls but then thought it would look dumb since I have Michilen stickers on the fairings....

I just had too much time to tinker around ..... sometimes you go overboard

If I kept playing around I proabbly would have started sticking on Harley chrome psrts
