To get more power:
  • "Highfive" airbox mod (removing flapper system and open up the intake).
  • K&N airfilter.
  • FMF powerbomb header and Q4 can - removing AIS and EXUP.
  • FMF power programmer.

Protection:
  • Flatland Racing skidplate.
  • Acerbis Rally Pro hand guards.
  • Acerbis front fork protectors.
  • 40mil head light protection film from Lamin-X

Uptimizing riding position/comfort:
  • Pro Taper SE KX High Black handlebars with Pro Grip 798.
  • Touratech 30mm raisers.

Other mods:
  • 14 L Safari fuel tank - better range and very good radiator protection.
  • 13/50 gearing - top speed reduced with 25% but perfect in rough terrain.
  • Michelin Enduro Competition tyres with BIB mousse - lot of grip and no more flats!
  • Yamaha luggage rack.
  • Touratech GPS bracket.
  • Moose Racing pressure relief valves (front forks).
  • All the stuff that I didn't need has been removed (indicators, rear fender, passenger footpegs ect.)
I think that's about it...
