I've basically just spent so much money on it, but I am already wanting to tally up a list of future mods. I sold a huge gun collection consisting of stuff like an AR-15 with Aim point laser sight, new XD9mm, Glock 19, etc to put into my bike. I always like knowing what I'm going to buy in the future for my bike so I have a long time to search for the best price, and read a lot on forums about the product and pros and cons, and so on. So I'd love suggestions from everyone, whether its visual mods or performance mods. Keep in mind you need to picture my bike with the rear tail section and cowl in carbon fiber, and the taylormade exhaust on with carbon fiber trim, and the carbon fiber frame sliders, upper headlight fairing in carbon fiber, windscreen in carbon fiber, carbon fiber front fender, and the gas tank will be covered in carbon fiber grip on the left and right side, and down the middle with the suzuki carbon fiber tank pad protector.. rubber frame plugs, carbon fiber-look oil cap/brake res cap, and a few others these are all mods not in the picture at the bottom, so try to picture it with all that on as well and then go ahead and suggest away! Thanks. Opinions on how it looks are welcome too even if they're that you don't like it, just be cool about it. Also opinions on what you would of done instead of spending so much on making it look better, I know a lot of you would prefer performance mods, so let me know what you might of bought so I can consider it for down the road.



Anyways here's my bike currently and the current mod list, a lot of the good stuff on this list has been shipped and is like 2 days from being here, or is in my room and I just have to take it to my friend with stands to put on (like this beautiful carbon fiber front fender im staring at just dieing to put it on.. but it seems like I have to remove my front wheel to do so.. can't do it without a stand)

These are my future mods so far that I can think of possibly doing, the only one I'm not sure of is wave rotors because their so rediculous in price (like $600-$700) and function the same as stock, they do look awesome but I might postpone that mod if I can get something that might add performance and functionality with visual..

Future (in this order, would change if suggestions are good):
K&N Air Filter
Brake Resevoir Carbon Fiber Cover
Carbon Fiber Swingarm Protector
Carbon Fiber Frame Protector
Carbon Fiber Engine Case covers, both sides.
Suspension Professionally Tuned (set for 220-230lb rider im 140 :/)

Was going to get SS lines, adjustable sato rearset, air filter, stuff like that.. but decided since I'm not riding as hard as I did on my cbr (mainly due to my suspension being out of tune I think, I can't get into corners like my CBR did..) that im going to go with more show less go on this bike.



Thanks for reading.




and a quick question -

Anyone here with a lower horsepower nitrous shot on their bike? How is this on the motor? a wet kit, not dry. This seems like the most performance for dollar performance mod but I do not like the idea of wrecking my bike, so give me some of your knowledge on wet nitrous kits on 600's, lower horsepower shots, maybe 25 horsepower? I don't know what is considered low really either so that'd be nice to know. I think it'd be a lot of fun once in awhile to spray, not to mention I'm sure I could find a nice spot for a purge kit.

Also how much do turbo kits run on bikes? Without installation and with, just guesstimation would be fine. I had a turbo on my old 370 horsepower car and I could only dream of the feeling of the turbo boost kicking in on a bike.

Didn't see SS lines in your list of mods or future mods might try those b4 you go buying insanely expensive rotors and I think you can got some with a carbon look. Might also consider velocity stacks

+1 on the stainless steel brake lines. i have an 06' 1k gsxr w/black silver combo and the s.s. lines give way more feel and they look great w/that color combo!! :thumbup:
ive always wondered if you really feel a difference, alot of people say do it but dont emphasize the difference other then stopping them from expanding..

So you lock up your brakes less>? Like when I'm coming up to a light for example, sometimes ill try to brake feeling it hit the rotor, slowly , but it will just lock .. like it has no "play" in the brake handle, its either off, on a little, or on full.

Anyone who knows where frame and swingarm carbon fiber covers are at for a 06 GSXR let me know, would love to get some prices those would be perfect for my bike , in the future after ss lines and adjustable rearset.

True that. get some SS Lines!

STOP is more important than the GO, imo.

You might also want to look into some carbon fiber honey mustard to go with your chicken strips.:yumyum::D

lol on chicken strip remark


I don't feel confident enough to get into corners, the bike is set for a 220 - 230 lb rider and I'm 140 lbs.

My cbr had no problems getting real low in corners..

I rather wait til I get it tuned right then dump it taking it too far.

I also washed the wheels earlier and didn't ride much other then a straight line to my friends, but I do have chicken strips on my tires lately because of the suspension making me feel iffy about leaning in.
