2000 Suzuki Sv650
1. GP Style shift layout (one up, five down)
2. GSXR rear shock (ok ill admit, the previous owner did this one)
3. New left side mirror
4. New shift lever
3 and 4 are both from times when the bike decided it wanted to lay down and take a nap…

I do not own a bike at present but my first first bike was like this after a year… (glad it was a small bike i learned, got wrecks, problems, put make up(stickers) just like a girl puting makeup for the first time (dang!what an example..duh..)… I learned lotz…
Well try changing levers, rearview mirrors, the grips or your handle bars, white bulbs for white light of course and reflective stickers on rims.. hey for a gs500 it does have slim tyres uh… but nice bike indeed…. don’t hastily put stickers on the fairing or at the back because it is still new and if ever, think well about which and what and where to put.. rather wash wax polish shine

I have a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 250. I have ridden it. . .a lot. Oh, I have also put fuel in it and changed the oil. The previous owner changed out the sprockets for more fuel economy. oh a few more things. I have cleaned and lubed the chain a few times and washed it and polished the chrome.

2008 Suzuki GS500f, which I am too lazy to take a picture of at the moment:
Yoshimura TRS exhaust
billet bar ends
I think that’s just about it for this season. Suspension upgrades will happen next season.August 15, 2008 at 3:25 pm #10599BuddParticipant
Shannon- you forgot suicide throttle ; )

Suzuki 07 sv650s. I’ve posted images of what I modded on that bike in the video/pics section of this forum… And i use my bike to pose at starbucks.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…August 15, 2008 at 4:45 pm #10604six-shooterParticipant
2008 Vulcan 500… mounted saddlebags, added luggage rack and passenger backrest, added engine guards, added throttle palm rest, added an aftermarket windshield, but don’t use it because the wind hits right on my forehead and causes my helmet to vibrate so much that it makes me sick.August 15, 2008 at 4:58 pm #10606
Ha! I was going to add that but it sounds really cool like I did it on purpose!
You should all have one; I love it!August 15, 2008 at 6:36 pm #10626LokiParticipant
How much horse power does that Yoshimura TRS exhaust give? And the Dynojet kit? Can i also ask of you the price?August 15, 2008 at 7:35 pm #10631
Of all the mods, the Yoshi seemed to make the most noticeable power increase. I would say as much as a 10% power increase just from changing the muffler. I paid $350 CDN for mine, and I know http://www.denniskirk.com carries them becaues that’s where I originally found it.
The jet kit and air filter are more subtle power increases, but I have what I call ‘two stage’ power now. As you accelerate through the rev range, you can feel it kick (and by kick, I mean in a pretty mild GS500 sort of way) around 6000 rpm. I like it; it’s more sportbikey than before. Jet kit and filter were a bit under $200, but I had to order both straight from the manufacturer and got hosed by UPS for shipping.August 15, 2008 at 10:27 pm #10651
From what i know, Yoshimura is for bikes having, how you say it, low end torque? imean for bikes like the sv650.. and akrapovic are for, how you say it, high end torque? imean bikes like the z750 (Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!) So yours would be… you got the right answer!!! Well i really hope when you get extra $$$, you buy the other 1 and try it on and send feedbacks! XDD

Yoshimura is owned by Suzuki, so Suzuki bikes and Yoshimura pipes go together like peanut butter and bananas.August 16, 2008 at 6:38 pm #10675
who says i can’t add jelly to that?! and kawasaki owns akrapovic but people put yoshimura on kawis.. and goes on the story….
