And with all due respect, I'm not talking about a TRE or Power Commander. I'm thinking more along the lines of better brakes for commuting, better grips, windscreen suggestions; those sorts of things. I will be using this bike mainly as a commuter but with some typical group rides through the twisties.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have found that the double bubble windscreen makes a huge difference when you are sitting upright during commuting or riding in a non-tucked position. The stock screen puts the windblast directly at your face. The double bubble eliminates this.

-1 on the front sprocket is a popular mod that most owners due immediately.

Stainless lines are a good upgrade. You can upgrade with some aftermarket pads but the stock ones are just fine.

TLR 1000 footpeg assembly fit and lower the pegs which takes weight off of your wrists,making commuting more comfortable

Thats all for now,maybe I will remember a few more in the morning :biggrin

Double bubble windscreen works wonders. Pity mine was cracked so I had to revert back to a low one.

Stainless lines are a great upgrade! Highly recommended.

I recently did the R1 throttle mod and wondered why I didn't do it sooner. Makes the bike so much more enjoyable to ride IMO.

Next on my list are some levers and a sprocket upgrade.

Thanks for the advice! I'm currently doing my research and really thinking about the direction I want to go with this bike.

TURBO!
:cheers
Right?! Too rich for my blood. At least at this time in life. :cursing I received what I think are three solid suggestions from Hayabusa.org though:

  • MRA windscreen
  • Saddlemen seats
  • Helibars
I'm also contemplating an ECU flash and HIDs.

I am doing the same thing. Busa for long commute. Good thread
My knees hurt after the long ride. Need rearsets or a way to lower my leg a bit.

Try the TLR or Buell foot peg mod

Mine so far are sliders, tail kit (to get rid of the hideous stock license plate thing), and HIDs. I think those are the basic upgrades for any bike since they are painless and don't break the bank. I'm gonna look into brake lines next and the hump mod lol.
