hmmm.....pipes can be pricey unless you can make your own....

breaher re-route is super cheap and good!!!....

some aftermarket blinkers are good

if your into stickers/decals add some of those...

HID's from DDM tuning are awsome! i love mine!!!

What kind of budget are you looking at? "Affordable" means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

I know a lot of people rave about the hawk exhaust. 5-0dro has some cool gear for your bike too that is affordable. There is actually a discount for members of BuellXb.

I have a Hawk exhaust it isn't the best quality as far as welds go and paint wise but I cured one of the 2 problems with a can of hi temp gloss black paint, now it looks like it should have been painted that way in the first place.

Don't put stickers on your bike...save the stickers for decoration elsewhere it.

Drop the front windscreen down an inch(evil eyes). Its a pretty awesome mod.

Chop the cheese grater(Grab the Buell by the horns)

Get rid of your passenger pegs if you dont ride 2-up.(Cleans up the tail section)

Wrap the headers if thats your kinda thing.

Hawk Exhaust is awesome! And Randy, the guy who makes them is a for real stand up guy, 150% behind his product.

Those are cheap routes.

Google ddm tuning motorcycle HIDs get the slim balast ones.....

I got the 55w 6k bulbs for high and low and they are almost to bright! I get flashed when I'm using my low beam every time I pass a car at night!

d&d exhaust is loud,ebr ecm and a high flow air filer you will notice big power gain. 5.0 drop make axle sliders and pully covers,nice stuff. I also recomend a right side scoop make bike run alot cooler my fan doesnt every kick on since i did mine.You want to realy make your bike stand out put a lightning tail section on it:D

iman, your flag is backwards

Forget the EBR ECM. Tune your bike yourself so you have a custom map that matches your environment, riding style, and individual bike.

I think primary moves should be right side scoop, then exhaust/K&N/tune as a package. You'll have a cooler running bike that is louder, more powerful, and smoother. Hard to beat that.
