Nordieboy is the DR guru. He'll probably be along shortly.
Standard mods are tank, exhaust, open airbox, bashplate, handguards. From there, the list is huge. Most people change the bars (bar risers), seat, tweak the suspension, heated grips. From there it's a new carb, big bore etc.
In my opinion, if you have to go that far, you should've bought a KTM 690 or similar.
Break out the plastic and take a look over here......
