I give them mine if I don't have another with me. I'd rather run the risk than let them run it.

I'll venture a guess the only thing to touch that passenger seat was another set of cock and balls.

Best cheap mod. Grip heaters. How, Oh how did I ever live without them......

Next would be the HID light conversion. It's still dark in the morning when I leave for work a big portion of the year and a good headlight is worth it's weight in gold here in deer country. You just don't realize how lacking a std. halogen bulb is until you have a HID bulb burning in there.

Most after market clipons don't have a place to mount a reservoir at all

Favorite cheap mod-seat cover. Local upholstery shop has sample squares for $1, and they are just big enough to do a motorcycle seat. I change seats every few months for a new look, and not a lot of ppl have custom seats, so it stands out
got any pics?

I like the idea of having 90 degree vavle stems.

I'll order wheel tape if they make it in black so you can't see it but it'l be reflective making me a little more visable

Re: Your favorite inexpensive mod for your bike?

Spongebob brake reservoir cover. Best JuJu ever. (Knock on wood)...I haven't had a single injury in 3.5 years (since the first time I used Spongebob). The JuJu is so strong, that i won't ride without him. I bought 27 spare Spongebob's in case that one somehow comes off.

Re: Your favorite inexpensive mod for your bike?

I was scared of that. But WERA's rulebook doesn't say anything about Spongebob rendering a bike illegal for Superstock, so i think im good.
