Keep it stock? Not if you hang around us too much
I told myself I was leaving my xr the way I bought it, nicely modded suspension/carb/filter wise, already desmogged and desnorkeled for me..I figured what else did I need right? I've since added a fork brace, full exhaust system, modified airbox, graphics, and some other things I'm forgetting.
Don't fight the Darkside, just go with it realizing as long as you don't spend more than you can afford, modding can and will happen
