    Default BEST MODS FOR THE MONEY, BANG FOR THE BUCK, a MUST read for new owners

    I am breaking these down into categories. Some of these fit into more then one category. All prices were priced on 4/17/08 and subject to change. Items or purchases over $200 get free shipping. Subject to change

    Sorry, I just could not resist slipping in the disclaimers.

    There are many do it your self mods that cost little to NO money. They can be found here

    1. Adjust the rear brake pedal.


    2. Throttle lock- cruise control


    3. De baffling your pipes/to get a louder sound
    Just a note he also drilled the outer back plate with 8 holes. Also one thing that he did not say to do, would be to shoot a little high temp black paint into the pipes to lightly coat the raw metal that was just exposed to keep it from rusting.

    4. Don't throw away your grip end caps/ key and rear axle mod.

    Another take on the above link

    They are listed on there. Just no link because there is a lot to choose from. And it would be the riders preference.

    I think it's a great list.

    On the shift kit, mine says EVOS95 on the box instead of S93, and it's also what's listed on Factory Pro's website. I think DLP has it wrong.

    They may have changed the number for just for 9's. No arm, but not a lower price. The link below is right to DLP's site on the only shift kit listed.

    And DLP had the S93 number listed on my invoice too. In fact, Gramps PM'd me when he got his and I checked Factory Pro's website to make sure we were getting the right thing. They also list on their that the gasket is now included, which mine was. Gramps thought they were perhaps still shipping the SV gasket. But if you check Factory Pro's website, the S93 is for the SV's and includes the arm.

    Sucks that you pay the same but don't get an arm with it too. ::)

    If DLP doesn't change the number, I'd leave the link like it is so folks don't get confused.

    From what was told is that kits down the road will come with gaskets.

    Dang, don't want to dirty up this thread.

    They are already coming with the gasket. Mine had the right one and so did Gramps. A few others posted in the original thread that theirs also had the gasket with it.

    Good for you
    Just when you expand, try making a note who paid and who didn't, so you don't send invoices to people who already paid you.
    Good luck !

    A note? 100% of those links go to DLP or threads on this forum. I don't own a parts store.

    I just bought a 2007 109R on Tuesday to go with my R6. I installed the stebel on my R6. It was a huge pain in the @ss, but I got it to work. Are you still making this plug and play kit? If so, how can I get one?
