I've got a 2010 and love it. I would suggest finding a model that doesn't use the LCD gauges as it makes mods a lot more difficult.

This is the "show and shine" section. Its generally for pictures and whatnot of finished projects and the like. Not a big deal, but youre better off posting in the help sections or in the "Lounging at The Club". More likely to get the info youre after and it keeps this section orgenized and on track.

So far I've done air injection removal, rear fender elimination, D&D full exhaust/remap, acewell gauge and woodcraft clipons. I'm currently having a custom aluminum tank made and plan on making an aluminum cowl and number plates to replace the side covers.

I did the following useful/purposeful changes from stock:

Ohlins
Carrozzaria Wheels
Arrow 2:2
FEK
ARK
Steering Damper

+ Lots of cool looking but useless bits  ;)

With the above, it is a totally different bike over stock.

Found an old shot from when I first bought it used in 2010:



Today:
