    Welcom mate.

    The first mods to look at are,

    1: Uprated solenoid, standard is 50 amp uprate to 150 for easier starting.
    2: Uprate to a stronger battery.
    3: Change gearing to 16/44 for smoother riding.
    4: Open airbox mod.
    5: Modified exhaust collector

    Just a short list to get you started, if you have any questions just give the shop a call, costs nothing for advice.

    Cheers

    Mark
