WWYD $200 Cyclegear Gift Card

Ok Guys and gals- I need some brainstorming for ideas on what to do with my birthday present.

Things to know:
I'm willing to spend extra money if it's worth it.
I plan to do more trackdays with the Triumph and the SXV.
Cyclegear can special order just about anything.
I'm in to functionality.
I'm not into looks, flashiness.
All my bikes that are street legal, are 100% street legal.
I try not to draw unnecessary attention.
All the bikes are up to date on maintenance.

Bikes for parts / accessories:
Triumph 675
Aprilia SXV550
CRF450R dirt/supermoto
CR80

Thoughts:
GCG Frame Sliders for the Triumph
Tire Warmers
17'' rims/spokes/tires for the CR80 (Mini-Moto!)

I'll even entertain the stupid ideas that I KNOW some of ya'll will throw out there! Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Oh man, you left off "slipper clutch" for the CRF450! You'll have to ad some $$ to that $200, but it's the best money you'll spend on that ho!

I'd also ad: Adjustable clip-ons for the Triumph and slip on carbon exhaust...

OK a slipper will run ~$900 for the CRF450...
and a STM slipper for the Triumph will run ~$1000.

Any thing under the $800 mark

Good idea on the Clipons! I really like the Vortex, however I don't believe they are adjustable. I have a set of the Heli Bars on the R1, and it made me MUCH more comfortable o the bike, no matter what the body position. I've also heard a trick of flipping the factory clipons side-to-side. I might try that at some point.

Put it towards a damper. One you can swap back and forth between bikes. Like my scotts, or a gpr.
