Trying another set of ebc pads, they still dint feel as good as Vesrahs no matter what anyone tells you. Also, should of shopped around before buying the street tires that I currently have.

arrow exhaust on the 650 (sounds terrible now like a constant fart)

tinted double bubble sucked when at the track, would have been nice to see through it when tucked down.

2003 Kawasaki ZX6R -- trackbike
2009 ZX14 -- STOLEN -- never recovered
2008 Hayabusa -- STOLEN -- frame recovered






Stage 3 jetkit with individual K&N filters on my daily rider. It went bleh everytime it rained. Never removed airbox again.

Although... I'd like to do an airbox mod but not possible on my current bike. I like the growl.

Sometimes I don't love the SQUODDY that's carved into my vinyl seat - it's not sewn down and the letters flap - it's annoying.

I LOVE my M4 shorty exhaust, but I need a custom bent pipe, because it bends away from the bike toward the rear and looks awkward...

I guess it just needs more mods, really.
I guess they make different models. Patrick recommended and installed a Vapor Speedo/Tach on my bike, and it has Odo/ Trip/ Low Gas Indicator/ Temp (something the original 919 cluster did not have)/ Max Temp/ Air Temp/ Clock/ Stop Watch/ .... and probably a few other features! I love it! Call Patrick. I forgot what model it is, but it's awesome!!

Its fun as if you're a racer. Its what I enjoy but my 50 is a stunt 50 first. So its just hard to mesh the two together.
