After hibernating for how many months last winter and waking up after a fantastic 16 hours of sleep today, I was going to study my books and then I realized studying is for midnight.

Daytime is for motorcycles and so it happened I placed my first few mods on. Did I know what I was doing?? (ha..ha..ha.... lets talk about that later).

First thing was replacing those gross stock levers (Love you eBay)
-Using the new levers, some lithium grease, and a few tools this was a pretty smooth job
-Asked for long clutch and short brake
-Good old Sportbike Track Gear has some nice tutorial videos.
$25 CAN // $19 US

Second thing was replacing them ugggggly turn signals (Thanks TST)
-I really was considering some no-name brand but, what the heck I like TST's products and you could say I wanted their little sticker. ;)
-Bought a set of wire-harness's and forgot a pair for the back lights :)| feels bad man)
-Bought the flasher relay from eBay though
Total = $35 CAN // $26 US

Thirdly was my fender eliminator (Ayee eBay back at it again)
-I honestly want to recommend this seller on Ebay who sells QUALITY fender eliminators with turn signals.
-Nice painted finish and good durability
-I had to splice wires because I didnt buy a harness, oh well.
$75 CAN // $55 US
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/331727517027?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT


Lastly was my windshield (eBay we get it, you have lots of stuff)
-Came in with no scratches, fit right into place and looks great with its black tint
-Little bit of a hassle to remove the front fairings but if a 20yo high asf can do it, I believe in you.
$23 CAN / $17 American

So, my total of today's mods was $150 CAN // $117 US
More mods to come!

Fifth addition was adding Frame sliders (Thanks Fort-Nine)
-Custom designed to fit each side of the bike
-A 10-80 ft/lb Torque wrench is a must (use 49 ft/lb)
-Mounting bolts were crazy torqued from the factory.... :/
-Hotbodies brand (they are similar to Shogun)

$83 CAN // $62 US

I have made about 10 mods to my MT-03 but the most bang for the buck was the R6 throttle tube. Engine guards, pre-load adjusters, Rigid spot lights, swingarm spools, TST flush lights, tidy fender, XP flasher for tail lamp, rack to carry luggage, Coretech 12 L tank bag, tank grips, foldable levers, fork springs to weight, different heel guards, aluminum fast adjuster for the clutch, and a rear shock with rebound adjustment. I´m a daily rider on multi surface roads so a different setup than most here.

After the tidy fender, I ended up modifying it with a small 6" fender drop for rainy weather to keep the mud off of my jacket and helmet. About the only thing I miss at this time would be some Avon Trailrider tires and then I am done. I ride this bike everywhere, on or off road.

Nice mods there Kiko! Once I get a little more money this summer I will be able to add more performance improving parts.
