Best Cheap Improvements

I have a gathering coming up and I am looking to make some changes on my 919, but I'm also not rich so I was wondering what I could do in a short amount of time. Taking the black off my wheels was probably the coolest thing I've done, and I LOVE that. I was thinking some new mirrors might be nice. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Probably the bafflectomy and bars and home grown fender eliminator.

An extended swing arm and chrome accents would look good too.

How is your gear situation? I'm thinking clothing here, not what sprockets you have.

An AFAM 17 tooth front sprocket. Get it from Dan Kyle Racing and tell them you're on wrist twisters. I got mine for 25 bucks.

I'm kind of in the same boat, and I was looking for the cheapest things that would have the most impact on performance. Not into "blinging" it up (yet). I've added the 17t countershaft sprocket, flapper mod, and stainless brake lines. Very pleased with all upgrades. Oh yea, I also added the OEM windscreen. A bit more for looks than function, but I really like it.
