The first thing i noticed was it was hard to start and spluttered in the mid range wich to me said it was to rich so that was easily fixed with the provided jets they give you with the bike.

I hate standard bars so they were off before it even got started. I use Tag T2 bars CR double high bend plus the risers.

Excel Rims
Talon Hubs
Thicker Spokes were used
CNC Talon Rim Locks
Talon Sproket (lasting very Well)
Gold RK U-ring Chain (Not Lasting to well lol)
Braking is the brand of disc (wicked discs)
The Graphics kit

Ive Spent no more then 3g on mods so far (That's NZ Dollars)

The bike handels well when i went from my 02 CR125 i was expecting a huge lug of a bike but it wasnt its the nicest bike i have ever riden and most people that ride it can sit on it and feel at home with in the first lap.

Mods to follow over the next year will be.
1.Suspension Revalve
2.Leo Vince Carbon Pipe
3.Tripple clamp set
4.Maybe white plastics
Its basicly endless lol.

Plan to ride it for 2-3 years then set it up for Super Motard.

Have you got a link for that Graphics kit??

I ride with all Alpine Star gear will look funny with Nofear Kit

Cant find the link as the braking web site is hard to get around will look on my rotors when i get home.

This is the web site
Braking


The whole wheel setup makes it look so much differnt and stand out but id rather have the bars which make it so much easier to ride becuase they are that much higher and i hate low bars. So the bars would be the best mod and best value id say.

It is a standard size rotor as they were orderd before any body knew the specs of the bikes ive had this bike since september. It stops fast enough good for 5th gear stoppies.

Don't know why one would change the disks unless you went oversize. The stock rotors are wave style from the factory and they are typical Honda, awesome.
