New levers and new chain/sprockets

In addition to a new exhaust, I'm looking to get some ASV levers and a DID gold chain with vortex sprockets, anyone know of a better set up? And should I get shorty levers or standards? Also, anyone know a lot about HIDs while we are on this topic?

Why do you think you need new chain and sprockets?

And I recommend hard anodized sprockets vs alu.

Also would recommend a track day over all these mods you're making

Do you have a bike license?

Nobody "needs" any new mods, I just eventually "want" a new chain and sprockets. I'm looking to re gear it to get a little more torque at low rpm to get a little more steam coming out of turns. And yes I do have a motorcycle license, thanks for the concern.

Vortex sprockets wear very quickly.
For street use I'd recommend staying with steel sprockets; much better life and cost less too.
A kit for your bike is $149.99 from us.
As far as levers, it's a personal choice on long vs short.
Imo I'd go with Motozen levers since they're also adjustable for length.
We sell them as well.

The shorties seem cool but I guess they would get annoying after awhile

I will have to look into those, but I like the ASVs because of their warranty.
