    Geez Rynosback,

    The scarey thing is I have most of those mods.... and the sick credit card to prove it

    For me the HID headlight, airhorn, driving lights and the VStream ... have to be at the top of the list of Mods i'd do again 1st ...

    Her who controls all funds would not be with out the Sissy bar and the pannier bags...

    So I guess its where your focus is

    Thanks Rynosback interesting thread

    If you have what you think is a great mod, I can post it in the first post. Is that what you are asking?

    Hi, No what I am asking is for the links in the first post (on the first page) of this thread as none of them work. When I click on the link it takes me to the old board and nothing shows. What I would like is for the links to be fixed so that when I click on them I can see what the mods are and how to go about them.
    Cheers, Peter

    I'm also thinking that I will post any how to install links under the mods listed. Do you think that would make it easier/better?

    I certainly do, that would be fantastic as half of them don't work either.

    Thanks, Peter

    Hi, I meant that half the how to install links (in other 'how to' threads, etc) don't work, so having them working and all in one place is a great idea.

    Thanks, Peter

    Does anyone have a copy of the videos showing how to debaffle the stock mufflers?? The link to them in Rynosback's post is dead.

    I'm would really like to do this but I'm nervous about taking a hole saw to my baby without knowing exactly what I'm doing.

    The thread is good, I would Pm medic to see if he still have them on file. I'm guessing that the server took them off after a certain time.

    Default Safety first

    Being a newer member this has been very helpful. The safety mods work. I have the horn and lightkit. People see and hear you better for sure! I just have a hard time finding the time to do mods when the weather here in St. Louis is high of 80 and lows of 65 and sunny!

    Thanks, I think the safety mods are a must also. They have a huge impact. That's what the winter months are for bro.

    The best one is missing from your list and belongs in several categories:

    De-badge

    Belongs in Free, Bling bc bike looks better w/o them and performance for the reduced drag and weight
