BEST performance mod...

THE BEST performance enhancing mod one can make on their R3 is the 1/6 turn throttle mod !!!

I finally got to wring out mine and WOW !!!

I went the cheap route and used the Zip Tie method, in fact, I used 2 heavy duty ties and it is truly AMAZING !!!

I know the stock tires are garbage, but now at higher RPM with full throttle coming out of a turn even in 2nd gear the back end slips just a tad like on a much more powerful bike !!!

Plus you do NOT have to re adjust your hand now when going from closed to open...

BEST perf-mod is TIRES. But I am glad you are happy with your throttle-mod.

I think tires are up there on the list for needed mods. Stock is crap.

Rosso II's are great. Friend had them on his naked sportbike. He raved about them.

I was under the impression that custom decals is the #1 performance mod.

This will make all your bikes eleventy billion times faster and safer than the most highly modified money pits.

I agree 100% about the tires, but as far as making the bike snappier, the throttle mod is the way too go...
Totally different beast with it...

I already have a stubby muffler, lowered the stock clip ons and raised the seat...
TIRES and Apex clip ons are next !!!

I have been riding on and off for 23+ years...
Came from a 600, 750 and then a 1200... Not too worried about track skills, my rides are mainly around town and on the few curvy back roads we have around here...

You guys clearly have no idea what bad tires are...lol

The Pilot Sports are one of the best tires I have ever had come on a brand new bike.

The R3 could use stiffer springs in the front, and sintered pads as well.
