This is what I have on my bike:

KR Tuned carbon fiber exhaust
BMC air filter
Vortex -1/+2 front/rear sprockets
DID 520 chain
Vortex lowering link
gel hand grips
Vortex bar ends
frame sliders
fender eliminator
Sportech windscreen
mirror stops

others probably have a power commander and speedo healer also

Ive been searching. I got the fender eliminator down, frame sliders. But when i see vortex -1/+2 front/rear sprockets I have dig up encyclopedias, the bible, etc just to know what they do. Turbos,exhaust headers, lowering links I know cause they do the smae on cars. I saw a gold bar or something on the handling bars, right below the gauges and it had me scratching my head.

Go to a performance shop and get your suspension dialed in.

Get some sticky tires. Pilot Powers are a good start.

Go to a track day.

Best mods ever.

the possibilities are almost endless. how much money do you plan on spending and that will help you narrow down at to do and what not to do at this time. its an expensive addiction.

1.Changing spockets(-1/+2,etc)is like changing gear ratios on in a cars diff.
2.Adding a PC3(power commander III)is like changing the chip in a car.
3.Steering stabilzer(gold bar)is like the shock aborber in a 4x4 steering linkage.
4.Fushies are flush mount signals for either Fr or Rr.
5.CA (clear alternative) is an LED tail/brakelight w/intergarted signals.
6.DB(double bubble) are taller windshields.
7.Rear cowl/solo seat/cowl seat- are all terms for the plastic piece that replaces the stock pass seat.
8.Tank pad is a stick on pad that protects the tanks paint from getting scratches by the metal buckles on your pants.
9.Swing arm sliders are like frame sliders, but for the swing arm.They also double as an attachment point for a Rr bike stand.
10.Velocty stacks are like venturies for the throttle bodies.Usually shorter are used to aid top end perfmance.
K&N, full Exhaust, HIDs,SS brk lines do the same for bikes as they do for cars.I know theres other items i forgot & im sure others will add to this.

i think this cat wants a list.
frame sliders protect your fairings and frame.
sprockets change the engine to wheel power ratio.
stainless steel brake lines reduce brake failure or increase stopping power.
chrome used to get you laid.
stuff like that.
