    After installing and a TPS reset I'd burn the Race ECM onto your stock ECM. I understand that Randy will provide you with it. You'll have to get an ECMSpy cable and download the manual and program here: ECMSpy Download

    Best place to start is to read about the basics and how it works through the manual that comes with the ECMSpy download link I have above. After that, post up specific questions you may have.

    You're 16 and used to computers and tech. stuff - you'll be fine, just do your research 'cause it is possible to screw up your ECM.

    First off the 03 bikes are very durable. I have read all kinds of durability problems and my 03 hasn't had any of them. Second it's good to see you wear the gear. I can't tell if you have boots on or not but I reccomend some. And under jeans leg armor does great, check out the Knox stuff at sportbiketrackgear.

    Now for some parts

    my favorite mod so far is clubman bars, the bike handles very different with them.

    A pipe is a personal thing. I like my D&D but it's loud as hell. A micron will turn it into a monster and I would have one if they didn't regularly go fo 700-900 bucks. Check out special ops for a cheeper muffler mod. He is a bit backed up right now so get in contact as soon as you can to be riding come spring.
    Odie (of spec ops) also has heat barriers they help a great deal in the summer, they Lso keep the intake from heating up so you can get colder air in the intake longer.

    Bar ends are a very nice mod as well. I have the CRG lane splitters and love them. The ability to fold them is something I use more than I thought I would.

    If you can pick up a pulley set from a used bike or one being parted I would do that too. The '03 belts have smaller teeth and are narrower and tend to strip or break entirely.

    I have scoops from ASB and they do great. I don't know about the comfort kit scoops personally but they are cheeper.

    But most of all just ride the heck out of it.

    Oh yea header wrap can sometimes leave your headers looking nasty when you take it off and every once in a while you hear about somebody cracking their header somehow with the wrapping. No idea how they do it but just as a warning. Personally I like the polished look. Take some fine grit sand paper and go to town on it. They will look silver at first and then turn gold as they heat cycle a few times.

    Who made the pipe you have now? It looks spec ops hawk or other nodded exhaust. Did you already spring for one and I overlooked your post on it?

    (I'm surfing on my phone while my computer is down so it's harder to read it all and I tend to skim instead)
