Re: 2003 R6, need ideas

I am assuming you are looking for other ideas from the standard Power Commander and slip-on (or full) exhaust that is typically on the top of everyone's list?

Not sure what kind of riding you do, but suspension upgrades will give you both (performance and some bling). I would reccommend either an aftermarket rear shock (or a re-worked one) and re-worked front forks.

But then again it's your bike do what YOU want to do to it.

well still a rookie rider, but getting better for normal street, no stunting but still wanting to learn. But yeah I am looking for ideas on any and everything. Plus if you or anyone have a company that has been good besides the big name part, let me know.
