Nice work man! ON my old 1992 Yamaha FZR600, I bought a Progressive rear shock with external reservoir and it was night and day. People are consumed with making it go faster without thinking about the ride or improving braking. I am doing a Sorpio alarm, getting some other security like Xena locks, a cover, various parts and such first. Doing my big projects in Spring-Full exhaust, PC5, rearsets, and rear shock. It adds up quickly! I will get some Diablos or Battleaxes once I ride my OEM Michelin's to the bone.

I'd say that my unsolicited suggestion would be to next get rid of the but ugly OEM rearsets and add a tank protector. Tank gets gashed quickly by buckles and zippers. Of course, you can be like eff you, I didn't ask sucka!

Keep up the good work.

I agree. For me it's gong to be brakes and suspension as the first mods, if the bike doesn't have good components. My last bike had great brakes (dual nissin 4 pots), excellent forks and shock, and was sprung close to my weight where I didn't need to buy new fork springs.

I don't see anything wrong with oem rearsets. I have a set of R3 racing rear set risers but currently do t use them as most of my riding right now is commuting. At my last trackday I was dragging knee with oem rearsets and I wasn't dragging hard parts or anything, so j don't think I need to out the rearsets risers on for now.

You are right. In two months i will try a trackday (on the R3) at assen (->just for future comparison). Soon after that i have an upgrade planned for the front suspension and front brakes. I think the bike is pretty good as it is for (quick) street-use.
