New Rider

Lets see here my name is Chris ive been riding for 6 months now. I have a 2012 Yamaha FZ8 which im modding and working on. Plan on doing track days in the future just looking for fellow riders to hang with and learn from. Also looking for shop info ie who to trust and who not to trust when it comes to serving/repairs/ mods etc.

That's a picture of my bike in my backyard taken a month ago. I have a list of mods I wanna do so ive been saving up and buying them one at a time. So far So I just finished buying mods so I feel like its worth the cash to go to a DIY shop and do all my mods myself.
I have:
Rental Streetfighterbars
R6 1/6 throttle tube
Driven D-axis Grips
Spiegler steel braided front/rear brake lines
K&N air Filter
Yoshimura R-77D carbon exhaust
Techspec snake skin grip pads
GIPro Gear indicator
LED turn signals
Vortex rearset
CL XBK5 brake pads front and rear

I wanna do as many mods as possible by myself but I also want to get my tank and rear painted. And I've attached a picture of how I wanna do my gear indicator so thatís going to take some planning. Well more dis-assembly. Also gonna do the Airbox mod.
