Let the mods begin!

Hi all,

So after doing my first service, I've realised you can't ride a stock bike for long.

Thus far I have fitted an OEM Seat Cowl and Dunlop Q3 tyres.

Next on the list is a Yoshimura R77 slip-on.

Will post some pics and vids soon!

the Q3 is great if you're on the twisties, but for daily commuting the oem d222 is doing just fine with much longer life.

My R came with a LV slip-on which I liked, but I replaced it with a Akra slip-on with a bigger body.
It sounds better and is not louder without the baffle than the LV with a 1,25" dia baffle.
I recommend spending some money on good tires!

I installed a LV One today, works for me but I'm new to bikes.

A fair few examples on youtube, but most are done with phones or cams that don't pick up the burble.

It was ~$300 au landed, which helped me decide.

I also considered the Delkevic options (bigger = less db)

It has to be modded BEFORE I can ride it!

Here's my list...

Delkovic Shorty Slip-On
R&G Tail Tidy
OEM Seat Cowl
Dunlop Q3 Tyres
PUIG Dark Smoke Race Screen
Oggy Knobbs

What you think?
I bet it looks nice! I started my mods with 2km on my CBR500r (bought new in November 2016). Oddly enough I still have 2km's on it...lol.

Fender Eliminator
Short clutch/brake levers
12v dual usb/cigarette lighter outlet
RAM Mount (Garmin Nüvi 5 LMT)
USA Flag Tank Protector
Removed that useless strap on the pillion seat
* getting an new slip on exhaust in January*

Sounds like a good couple of bikes. I bought a smashed one last June. Decided it needed to be raced.

Specs:
Vfr400r front end
Dual front callipers
R1 shock
Clip-ons
Rs250 Honda gp fairings
Carbon tipped slip-on
Quick turn throttle
Magura master cylinder
Fully adjustable rearsets
Set of Pirelli Supercorsas

Let me know what you lads think.

Apologies in advance if this isn't the place for race bikes but I thought I'd share

Only things I've done thus far.

Tail tidy
Mirror extenders
front end brace
gear indicator (best thing so far)


Only other mods I would do maybe a front fender extender and a rear tire hugger thing.

Removed the rear strap from the rear seat, don't ride two up these days.

Was the front end swap a bolt right up or some 'massaging' required. I've been wondering about a swap like that more for shiggles than anything seeing as mines got emulators, preloaded, single rate springs and front brace already; it holds up pretty awesome as it is. Interested to compare how much of a difference the dual rotors for braking make too

Mods for my CB500F 2016

New bike week before Xmas, so jumped straight in as usual:

Factory workshop manual(must have for all my bikes)
Combined rear hugger/chain guard
Puig sport screen
Radiator guard
R&G aero sliders
R&G engine covers
Gear position indicator
Centre stand
Bar risers

& maybe C-Bow kit & bags in the future, if I can still travel. Muffler is stock at the moment. I usually get some noise, but we're subject to so much surveillance here I'm hesitating this time.
