First mod?

Post by UFO » Sun Dec 03, 2017 7:11 am


Not like there are many mods to do to this thing really. :?

Interested to hear what the first thing you guys are thinking of doing? Or are you going to give your checkbook a much needed break? :lol:

I see Akrapovic already has a slip on for the SX. It was on one of the bikes at one of the recent shows, not sure which one.

Site must have an post editing timer on it. Wanted to add that I think the stock exhaust looks pretty good on the SX. Let's hope it sounds good. I don't expect you'd get much of a power bump on this bike with just a slipon.

Aftermarket (possibly Akrapovic full line exhaust) and possibly a TurboSmart BOV

I'm hoping Brocks performance develops upgrades for this bike like they did with the H2. Id love to add a full exhaust with a slash cut slip on (as long as its not going to cook the bags), a Guhl flash and filter with a custom dyno tune.

Honestly, I'm not certain I will do anthing to this bike other than adding some ram mounting system for my cellphone. And sell one of my balls to get the maching cases. :doh:

These will be the first:
  • Handle heating
  • LSL footrests (gain about 2 extra cm's for my long legs)
  • Exhaust (Akra?)
  • Fill saddle with gel (about 1 cm higher)
  • License plate holder
  • Xenon lighting
  • Mounting for my TomTom navigation
  • Windshield, dark or black and with a kind of jetstream
Those were the ones i had on my Hayabusa.

Why would you replace the led lighting with xenon?

If you get the SE version it comes with heated grips.

The SX SE has heated grips (not the standard SX though). And all lighting is already LED.

I should add to my post above that I will probably look into some bar risers if someone designs them right and they aren't ugly and clunky looking.

Good point, if the head light better is than previous bikes than i don't need the Xenon. But main reason for Xenon is that cars etc. will see me better.

I know, i have chosen for the "cheap" version. Prefer the gray/black one. (suits better with my leather outfit and color of my hair)
