New to motorcycles, but

I've had my 2011 Kawasaki Versys 650 for about 3 months. It's my first motorcycle at 19 years old. I've recently became heavily interested in motors, cars, and motorcycles, and I've enjoyed learning things every day, and searching the internet for parts and such. I have big aspirations for my Versys, as I've done several mods to the bike that I've had no trouble fitting in and such. LED swapped the headlights, fender eliminator, alternate tail light, etc. My eventual goal for the bike it to turn it into a sort of street fighter / sport bike hybrid, and eventually swap a motor into it so it'll keep up with 600's. I've loved every single thing I've done to it, and can include a list upon request.

A bit about myself: I've been in with the whole ATV life since I was two years old, my first ATV was a little Suzuki LT-80. Currently I have a '04 Yamaha YFZ 450, built for sand dunes. My dad bought it years ago, but he never really enjoyed it. I really don't do a whole lot of things with my dad sadly, but we do go on vacations to Waynoka, OK. Currently he's driving a Polaris Rzr 1k when we go to the dunes, due to his older age.

Note about pictures: They are days apart, but currently the first picture is the most accurate regarding the left side. Also if the pictures are upside down, I have no idea why.

I go the bike mostly stock when it had about 9,500 miles, and currently it's close to 13,500 miles. From what I understand, the previous owner got an aftermarket windscreen and lowered the bike a couple inches.

Things I've done to the bike:

LED Conversion
Aftermarket Flasher/integrated tail light
Yoshimura slip on
R&G Fender Eliminator
Denali soundbomb mini
Changed the shifting linkage to GP Shifting (1 Up 5 Down)
Removed passenger pegs (Shaved 5 pounds doing so)

Planned for this year:
PCV
Autotuner
ECU Flash
New chain/tires (And going to deep clean the underbelly, there's a lot of grease and such)
ASV Clutch/Brake levers (I've dropped the bike a couple times, and need to replace the front brake lever, it's bent.)

USUALLY it's because you set your camera to automatically turn pics right-side-up. Disable that function and you should be OK.
