Re: Advice on first mod's please!
Hi, Welcome Rod!
Most 1000's are very capable bikes, let alone one from the last 10-15 years.
I'd say spend money on maintenance things like oil, oil filter, tyres, coolant, spark plugs, air filter, brakes etc... doing the periodic checks the manual says to do. As you get more comfortable with your bike and its controls, book a track day.
Track days are the best money you will spend on your bike along with tyres. More power is great, but have you run low 10's in it yet? have a crack down the 1/4 and see how much it actually has in it from factory before you start pouring money into it without having the capability of riding what you have to its potential. before searching for my power ask yourself how often do you find yourself on the throttle stop in gear one?
If the answer to that is very often, go get more power, if its not often work towards getting comfortable first.
Ride safe and all the best!
