Like other have mentioned, here is what I would consider necessities.

1) suspension setup
2) new pegs or rearsets with better grip
3) seat
4) taller windscreen
5) throttle spacer kit to remove slop
6) 41T rear sprocket
7) grips
8) track days

After those it becomes parts for less weight, more power, and bling. But it all depends on what you want to spend your $$$ on.
Thanks from Marmoot

2) new pegs or rearsets with better grip.. Woodcrafts GP..done
3) seat..On order
4) taller windscreen.. Bike came with one..keeping it for sure..
5) throttle spacer kit to remove slop..Done
6) 41T rear sprocket.. On order..
7) grips..were delivered yesterday, not installed yet
8) track days.. On top of to-do list for later this year
Thanks from flobrandx and Marmoot

Nice! Not that I haven't spent money on some bling items... But from what I've learned this would be first on my list and then I'd go for exhaust and then the list is endless.

I suggest a 1299...


In all seriousness the boys already beat me to it. Tidy tail, grips, windscreen are the cheap upgrades...after that, you're on your own!

Thank you for the input guys. In regards to suspension setup, is that something you guys set up yourself or do you use a shop? If using a shop, - I guess it can be a challenge to find a mechanic/suspension expert who actually knows how to dial in the correct setup for weight and riding style.

I took mine to the shop where they setup the sag, verified the springs were correct for my weight, and put in some baseline compression and rebound settings. This gives you a good starting point and then you can adjust based on your preferences/riding style from there.
