Re: Your favorite inexpensive mod for your bike?

Lowering it so your stubby legs can touch dosnt count as "adjusting for weight"

And how do you bring the bars closer so you can reach with the T-rex arms?

Re: Your favorite inexpensive mod for your bike?

R1 throttle mod with my bikes current setup cheap, cost was $14 or so to my door and the throttle is so sensitive now. No need to grap a handful of throttle.

And that valve stem mod is awesome groundhogday.

Probably the best bang-for-the-buck performance mod is a -1 front sprocket.

If nothing else, just go here, pick your bike on the menu and start looking....

Hey never thought of that. The straight ones are a pain to get too sometimes when checking pressure or adding air.

your vertical valve stem's spring will also not hold air as well over 140 either. the centrifugal force is simply too much. definitely worth $20.

Ya know,I really wanted to do a build thread as a few of the guys asked me to do one but for whatever reason I never did. There are a few threads in the 05/06 forum if you search back into May/June of this year with pictures&some specs.

Im in the process of a full turbo build on my '00 Busa and I will be doing a thread on that;Ive been taking pics since yanking the engine and once I get everything bolted up I will post

Re: Your favorite inexpensive mod for your bike?

Newb question don't flame me lol what exactly does te -1 front sprocket do? My friends were talking about this and they described it as similar to changing gearing on a car, better acceleration?

Re: Your favorite inexpensive mod for your bike?

Id say adjusting the stock suspension was the best/cheapest mod for me.
