You can spend loads on these bikes, depending on your needs, tastes and budget. Do a search on here and there are loads of threads covering all manner of mods and 'farkles'.........

But honestly, it is good to go - just ride and get to know it before you start spending your money.

I would only bother with a side stand relocator and a different sump guard if you do serious off-road - and by that I mean rocky single track and rocky jeep trails. If you are just riding gravel roads, muddy tracks and fire-breaks the bike is fine as standard.

That said I have loads of mods to my bike, but the best ones are the replacement Akrapovic exhausts - the standard ones run hot and weigh loads and the bike seems to breathe better with the Akra's on - it certainly sounds better I'm sure other brands will do a similar job. I also have heated grips, the metal radiator guard and pivot pegz, among other things.

But as I say, its a personal choice and you need to get to know your bike first.

Hope you enjoy it and get the buzz we all do........
