$100 -$150 what would YOU do?

So i absolutely love my bike the way it is but i also have a few extra dollars i may want to invest, so my random question of the day is, what would you buy if you were given a $125 gift card for your RC51 only.


currently

Smoked screen (home grown)
Frame sliders
PC-III
Flush mount front signals
Gold wheels
Tank pad (in route)
HID (in route)
Brake lines



my ideas im rolling around are:

undertail
rear hugger
or these levers http://www.rideitmoto.com/products.php?id=28l



all maint is up to date, and the tire funds are set aside for next month at my next track day

If its just to blow some cash, Id get some new grips. Ive got the Renthal hard grips, they are superb and 2 of the others I ride with have gotten them too.

I just looked at those levers, I'd vote for those. By the pictures of the shorty's mounted, they look just a touch longer than my pazzo shorty's. I REALLY like the feel of quality handles. Look for how much freeplay or up and down movement once the handles are mounted -- they should feel quite a bit better than oem.
