Well, ok, it isn't, but I like Ben Grimm. It's farkling time, or at least time to begin planning. My list so far is:

Givi E21 bags and mounts
MotoWerk peg lowering kit
MotoWerk lowering kit
MotoWerk mirror extenders
MotoWerk vibration reducing bar risers
Windshield
Automatic oiler
16T sprocket

Some aren't exactly performance mods maybe and I haven't made my mind up about the lowering kit. I'm not sure what order I want to do them either.

Any suggestions on other things not on my list yet?

I knew there'd be things I'd thought of and forgot and others I hadn't thought of yet.

Battery tender, and it's in the garage waiting to go on
Assorted sliders, how many to catch it no matter how it tips over?
Stainless brake lines
Therm-O-Bob
Hand guards
Tank protector
Better lights

I may have as much in farkles as I do in the bike before I'm finished.

I probably won't go with gear indicators or shift lights. My hero was the tortoise and I'm penurious so I generally shift to stay in lower rpm range for mpg. I've thought about a different exhaust but doubt it would ever pay for itself so I'll probably run the stock as long as it's good. I imagine the same goes for the PC.

Thanks for all the great input so far. There's lots there I hadn't thought about yet.

GOOD list, and I see someone added SW-Motech crash bars, which I TOO recommend. I use 2" ROX anti-vibe Risers which allow the handle bars to rotate forward for when I'm standing on the 'pegs, which the MotoWerk one won't as they raise the bars but bring them more towards you (Speedy makes GREAT stuff - I just prefer the ROX for how I ride). I'm about 5' 10", 31" inseam.

homemade GPS mount
Bark Buster hand guards

That is just ridiculous. What is wrong with me?

Enjoy your bike.

I buy what I need to make the bike do what I want. Nothing more...nothing less.

The best way of putting it I saw was a guys sig and it read, Spending money I don't have on things I don't need to impress people I don't know! And That sums it up pretty well.

WARNING! LUBRICATION RECOMMENDATION...

I have used DuPont Teflon Chain Saver spray for years and years. I read an article in Motorcycle Consumer News about it. Goes on clear, doesn't fling, and maintains a nice film on the chain. The internal o-rings take care of the rest...

In my mind, this is a "must have".

It keeps both hands on the bars, when those pesky noobs wave, and wave, and wave.

I'm sure there's a Kawasaki-specific version out there somewhere.

:D:D
