Post up what mods you guys did to your bikes over the winter, and if you are happy or not with them.

I did:
rearsests (still getting use to but happy)
clip-ons (happy)
steering damper (happy)
powercommander (noticable difference, happy)

Lets see what us R6 riders are investing in for our rides.

Are you 08 owners starting to find some more aftermarket parts?

I did wave rotors and Rizoma front signals. Happy with both.

Love the look of the Rizoma signals, I wanted something a little more visable than flush mounts.

Final verdict on the rotors will come after I try them with newer higher temp brake fluid, I had some fade at a track day last week but I think it was the fluid and not the cooling of the rotors. The bite on the rotors is great.

winter mods....... when its too cold to ride, piss away some money and work on it!!!!

febuary 2008 i installed...........
  • quick turn throttle mod (WOT with a flick of the wrist) - the f-ing sh!t. i love it!!!!!!!
  • factory pro v stax - happy
  • shorty Pazzo Racing Levers - f-ing sick levers, love em
  • driven grips (skull print) - love em

technically before winter, but in the beginning of october 2007 i installed.........

  • Vortex black 520 sprockets 15 front (-1), 50 rear (+2) and black 520 chain - big differance, best mod for the money
  • BMC Race filter very nice, big diff from k&n

Solo Cowl ----- Still waiting on
Fender Elminator
Black Rearset
Black keyless Gas Cap
Comfort Seat
Black Axle Adjusters ----Not on the bike yet
GYTR High flow air filter
Galfer Brake Lines ---- Not installed yet, may sell.
Vortex Sprocket Conversion
Light N' Bolts
Bar Ends
Headlight Mesh
R6 Tank Pad
Graves Spools

Other than the things that I am still waiting on or that are not installed on the bike, and the keyless gas cap everything is great. The gas cap is just hard to open sometimes. I also picked up a second set of black rims for now, but I am looking at some aftermarket gold rims, and a full exhaust for my next mods.
