Style & Safety Mods

All stock. I’ll probably just add engine protectors and bags.

Performance / Handling Mods

Don’t feel the need to mod it yet. Maybe just delete the pair valve since it does get annoying at stops.

Luggage / Convenience Mods

Not yet. Any solid recommendation for bags are welcome!

Plans / Wishlist

I simply wish to own this for the duration of my life or its life. Whichever one lasts longer.

to give you an Idea how I have modified my bike. This is how it looks like now. I can name all the brands I have used.

Oof! The tank grips complete the look nicely!

I’m going to order the timing cover and fork sliders but what’s that protector on the engine block?

Also do those protect the plastics of the bike? Or better yet, have you had the misfortune of “testing” the protectors? I’m a little apprehensive about installing the timing cover puck because it might damage the threads during a drop.

I once lowsided on my CB500F and cracked almost all the cowls. Couldn’t justify fixing them up since I bought it for so cheap ($1.5k). Not going to let that happen again to this bike.

sliders are EVOTECH which you can find on motostarz.ca
timing cover is from WOMETTECH/TST Industries. Super high quality but a little over priced. I tipped my bike the very first day I installed it and it seems okay. However keep in mind changing all the covers on the engine block may cost you less than installing all these protectors!
Tank pads are modified by me and they are made my MOTO.
The main use of frame sliders these days is to stretch and rest up my leg on it :D
