should be riding her home tomorrow!

so i work at a dealership and i had the chance to hop on a 2011 maroon/black raven for a helluva good deal.







rode the bike around last week and fell in love with it. i thought i liked the gsxr6 but i LOVE this bike. so anyways i'm new to the r6 game and would like some input on parts/mods that are worth the time and $$$. was thinking: stomp grips, flush mount signals, integrated tail, double bubble screen, and some type of slip on. later down the road i'd like to do the MJS header and PCV. sound about right? any other mods worth doing?

Re: should be riding her home tomorrow!

Those are the good starter mods I'd go with, later down the road you can do little improvements here and there like halos and HID's.

Also, it's super easy to do the GP shift mod on these bikes.

nah it's used, 6700 mi. never dropped but it's been ridden a little hard. but i mean who can blame them, it's an r6!

btw rec's for a good slip on? that's not too pricey that is. i already know to stay away from jardine.

Welcome

Like was already said; I would stick with what you have on your list, along with pulling the decals, then throw some miles on it and enjoy. This cold weather is killing me wish I could get out and ride
