Cheap is that you?????????

First visual mods I would recommend. Get rid of the Mickey Mouse Ears and clean up the back end of the bike. Then maybe a pipe and Tune Boys but thats a few bones......... :-D

Sliders are one of the best things you can put on speedy. Could save you a bunch of cash and grief in the long run.

Watch Ebay and the classifieds on here for items you want buy them cheap and then sell yours. I usually make money on my bikes but it is a little harder to do with newer bikes. My other trick, make it yourself! Of course there again it helps to have a fab shop (even one as basic as mine) or access to one and years of fabrication experience never hurt either!! :-D :razz:

Cheapest?
Spray painting the radiator shrouds black. They shoulda come that way in the first place.

Runner-up:
Home-made fender eliminator.

<hr>

Most useful?
Bar-end mirrors (Napoleons at ~$30 a pop, not cheap, but not expensive)

Runner up?
Sargent Seat. Not cheap at all, but your boys will thank you.

<hr>

Best Stealth Mod No One Will Notice But You?
TORS. Looks stock. Runs stronger. Buy 'em used and save.

<hr>

Most utterly unnecessary mod offering only modest practical improvement while remaining totally, completely bitchin' to the point where it gets the most comments?

Pazzos. Go figure

I think my best bang for the buck was going to a bigger rear sprocket and the 520 chain conversion...$250 and it made a difference! But for sure swap out the mirrors cut the ugly plate holder off the rear end and if you plan on doing any kind of all day riding your gonna want a new seat...I like the sargent but corbin also makes one...Thats a good start but once you start it never stops!!!!! :)

engine mount powder coated black, $5.00 and looks much, much better than stock. Footpegs powder coated black for $25.00 and look as cool as hell.
