Rear shock and fork springs w/ 10W oil. Best money you will ever spend.

Cometic head gasket and a little sanding in the ports is cheap hp.

Without spending mega $$ your 9er looks great. Have you considered buying some new safety equipment? ie: helmet, leathers, gloves, or boots?

I believe that you would need to customize the upper clamp. A search of previous posts will gather the info that you need.

Bought new leathers when I got the bike. Bought a pair of SIDI Stivali Way Tepor boots this spring and a new Icon Mainframe Subhuman helmet.

Here's the mod I'm currently working on. It makes a huge differance in my roll-on time from 70 to 90 mph in 6th. I still need to work out the final shape but I like it so far. It wll end up red to match the bike.IMG_1022.JPG

I thought about doing something similar. Never get around to doing it though. Don't know if taking the filter out, then having a big L pipe coming out, and a K&N air filter on the end, or a hood scoop type deal (like yours) would be better. Either way, it's a lot of time.

Get some real Rear Sets.
The precision shifting is well worth it.
The added ground clearance doesn't hurt either.
