Howdy from UT
Been lurking around this forum for a while now. I bought my bike in April (08 blue) and it's now got around 930 miles so far. I have a short commute (7 mi) so I'm not really racking up the miles as yet.
No major problems so far, it doesn't seem to use oil, though my riding wouldn't really show it. I still have my original turn signals (I understand that that that's somewhat unusual).
Haven't done much to it yet, just a couple things:
IMS extended shift lever (Size 12 steel toes)
"I" mod (that would be 1/2 of the "L" mod, my last Dremel cutting disk broke so I stopped half way). Didn't really notice any improvement in performance, but it's certainly louder now.
probably some new (taller) bars.
Healthier fork springs and perhaps emulators (this thing dives like a submarine when I really hammer the brakes)
$0.22 mod (I suck with carbs so I'm a bit apprehensive on this one)
Still on the fence on exhaust changes (I like quiet, but I also like more power), Just curious, but why does a simple slip-on cost as much as an entire Cat-back system for my car? It's not like they are terribly sophisticated technology.
