    So what mods are a must for those of us who still have stock bikes? I'm playing with ideas of stuff I want to do now that I'm home and have the bike back, and was wondering what you guys suggest.

    Right now I have new grips/levers, some decals c/o Matter, and am planning a breather reroute next weekend when I start block leave. Also want to get some LED turn signals, but not sure beyond that.

    So let's see what you guys have!

    K&N filter, an exhaust and tune to help with sound and power and good synthetic oil. anything else is just preference

    mcmurphy: i like my street bikes fairly stock with an added bit of sound and some light custom touches, but nothing radical. on my 2004 firebolt, i did the breather re-route of my own choosing, iridium NGK plugs, new stock air filter, full synthetic motor oil and bel-ray gearsaver #80 in the primary, EBC HH brake pads front and rear, brake fluid flush and fill, a few decals and stripes as the bike is bland white. other than that, left everything else stock including the ECU. it runs great, very reliable, all the power i need for my type of riding, just a wonderful bike. the frame and s/arm decals i applied and sell really jazzed it up. hope that helps.
