Looking for a mods mentor.

I'd like to do all my own mods but I admit I haven't had alot of experince modding and haven't done soldering in years. So I'd like a mentor to watch over my shoulder and pretty much make sure I don't anything up too badly. Payment in beer. And if I fail horrible am willing to pay for someone's services.

Half of the enjoyment is the planning and research.
Half is the thrill of the risk of doing it yourself.
30% is the learning process itself.
30% is the satisfaction of expressing yourself and appreciating your handiwork.
And 25% is the comments and admiring looks from everybody.

Go for it.

The internet is your best tool! You can learn how to do just about anything on youtube and forums. There is always a how-to! Gives me piece of mind when I am doing something I havent done before! Research it and do it, no need for a sidekick. More beer for you!

What kind of mods are you looking to do?

You can find videos of just about anything on youtube, and even if what they do in the video is a horrible idea, if nothing else you'll have a good example of what NOT to do.

So far...

Done carbon Yoshimura R77D exhaust, Renthal street fighter handlebars, Spiegler steel braided brake lines, Carbon fiber covers. So yeah not bad. Next is the Vortex rearset install and going to throw on some Metezler Sportex M7RR tires with aluminium 90 degree valves.

I found youtube. And i paid motorcycle unlimited to do my rearset, tire change, and fix my handlebars. Overall good work. They adjusted my clutch so that threw me off, and my rearset is kind of loose
