I really like the PCIII USB....single most mod that really smooths the 'ol girl out.

Please, every one post

On the I'm sure that I'm not the only one here that cash is not the most abundant thing for them.
With my bike being stock. I would like to hear what the rest us have and what's there "Favorite mod" with a brief why.
This could be very usefull for the ones of us that are behind the power curve in the mod list categorie, to choose what to get next. I know there's many little tricks to making our bikes handel better and have more power. I already have a PC3USB at the top of my wish list with Satos, OneTurn snorkel/air box setup on there too, but let's make it longer.
Sorry about the thread jack man
James

My favorite thing that was done to my bike when i got it has to be the exhaust, something about a V twin with exhaust that opens up the note that much more.


As for low to medium budget mods im really itching to put some HIDs in there and at the same time possibly convert to dual low beams, hid is plenty bright enough to compensate for lack of a "bright"

I am also contemplating some throttlemeister cruise control if i dont do HIDs

On the RC the exhaust is my favorite because, well ......we all know why.

But in general, I usually tell people Steel braided brake lines are the best performance bang for the buck.

PCIII would get my vote, my bike runs far smoother and revs quicker with that and a dynotune (2001 SP1).

i said rear shock because it transformed the way the bike handled. Dan Kyle set me up with a spring that is matched to my weight. Not to mention it's fully adjustable. I kind of lumped them together because I did them at the same time but the suspension link adds rear ride height which makes the bike turn in faster. Check out rc51 parts.com and I think he has the suspension link for 250 bucks. A rear ohlins is super expensive but for 250 bucks you can make your bike a much easier bike to turn in.
