Some thoughts on Mods for newbies...
OK, I have an 08. I did the airbox mods, I did the fancy version of the .22 center (KLX needle). I did the doo. The mods designed to increase performance did what they were supposed to do...deal with the bike running too lean, give a little extra oomph.
But here's a thought. If you have a new bike, and you are reading on here, you are probably debating all the possible things you can do to make your bike more...something. Well, the doo is worth doing even on the new bikes if you ask me. But nothing has changed the handling and feel of my bike as dramatically as replacing the front fender with an acerbis supermoto and putting on a fork brace.
Point being, these are two EASY things you can do...I think the fender cost $30 and was super easy to install. The forkbrace is more, but you can get EM's for a little over $100 I think. And they make a big difference. At least that's my experience.
If I had it to do over again, I probably would do everything the same. But I would have changed the fender and put on a fork brace immediately.
