the upgrade path for most is pretty much the same.


exhaust (literally EVERYONE starts with exhaust, these bikes sound great so it's obvious)

all the cheap/free stuff. brake lines, flapper/pair/soft rev, little stick on carbon bits, flush mount signals etc etc etc

then you may see a set of wave rotors (blech), some rearsets and clip ons maybe


after that guys tend to look at suspension (ohlins 20mm fork kit, ohlins/penske/whatever shock)


then maybe an airbox, snorkel, that's where most stop.




then there are some people who just do all the things. they're fucking retarded though haha

but most importantly, put the keyboard away and do some reading. this bike is almost 20 years old, literally EVERYTHING has been covered a million times. read around here, rc51.org, etc. there are a few facebook groups too, but the facebook groups have much less useful information and are generally just people spamming pics of their bikes. it might help you to see what different people do though.

Wow thanx... now I been outta the game since Winky was selling actual vcr tapes of his crew doing crazy 12 oíclock wheelies so Iím sure Iím gonna annoy a lot of u with actual bad ass bikes that have been casual riding and track racing in the last 2 decades... I get the carbon accents and signals as usual, plus power commanders and braided lines are the norm or obvious... but I see people trimming sprockets and then having to change speedo with these bikes, and then I see suspension changes but Iím curious if thatís a necessity on rider weight...? .. but what I definitely need help with is the lingo now... sooo flapper/pair/soft rev..? And then wave rotors? Is this just all the mods Iím seeing on mounts for brake options..?

Exhaust, PCV, Custom tune, Ohlins rear, Kyle link, Brembo RCS, fork upgrade, 15/41 520 C&S conversion, Spal fan, 190/55.

This will transform the bike.
