every answer posted above is opinionated, some are just backed with YEARS of experience, most are not. If you wanted to start a war, i've got one for ya. . .Yoshimura is cheap exhaust, nowhere near the quality of Akro, 2Bro's, Arrow, Arata, or anything else in this thread. How you like dem apples?

Inexpensive, yes, but on some models, and not just Suzukis, they post HP and torque numbers comparable to systems that are twice as expensive.
And I like my apples in a pie please!:laughing6

Chains- RK, D.I.D., Tsubaki

Chain Lube- Bel Ray

Sprockets- AFAM & Renthal for aluminum, JT or Sunstar for steel. Vortex is junk IMO.

Spark Plugs-NGK, Nippondenso

Brakes- EBC, Vesrah

Dampers- Scotts, GPR

Rotors- EBC, Brembo

Rearsets/ Lowering Links- Whatever fits, there's at least 6-7 brands that work well.

Stands-Pitbull, Vortex

Shocks- Ohlins, Works Performance, Penske

Intake Kits- Dynojet, Factory Pro

Tires- Any of the major brands; Bridgestone, Dunlop, Metzler/Pirelli (same tire), Michelin. Depends on what you're riding and how you're riding it.

Exhaust-Akropovic, Arata, Brocks Performance, Leo Vince, M4, Muzzy,Sato, Yoshimura. Once again, depends on what you're riding and how you're riding it.

Levers- CRG, Pazzo, Motion Pro, OEM if nothing else is available but they're overpriced.

Cleaners- Honda Spray Polish, S100, Glass Plus (no ammonia)

I haven't been impressed with fit and finish or performance gains.
