cheap gen 3 mods?

Hey yall. I just picked up a brand new 2010 about 3 months ago. I now have almost 4k miles on it and and wanting more power. I'm wondering what are some cheap mods for hp...besides the usual exhaust, filter, sprockets. Any help would be appreciated.

You mentioned sprockets; they are one of the cheapest improvements that give A LOT of bang for the buck. Also, 1/5 throttle insert makes a world of difference and it is very cheap.

Hey welcome, post some pics of your bike why dontcha?

Cheap mods for HP?... I really don't think there are any..they all cost $$ if you want HP..dunno, anyone else comment?

I want to die while asleep like my grandfather,
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

I dont know if you can actually find it through just browsing, I punch in the part # from the 08-09 Race Manual: #49118-0134, 296* Duration, 9.7mm Lift

I didnt look for the exhaust side either. The race exh cam has 12* more duration with no change in lift. You could just flip your stock int to exh side and get the 12* duration and add 1.2mm lift if you wanted to, probably

the question is about how mechanically inclined you are. Doing it would not be too big of a deal, but you do need to get under the valve cover to change them. If you are comfortable with getting that far, the cams are pretty much right there. Yes, you without any remote doubt should be doing the valve clearance. You should also do your spark plugs while youre in there too.

This will also help you set your cams too.

Rifleman's 1/5 throttle insert is a piece that you install on the throttle tube that increases throttle response by 20%. It basically increases the diameter of the part of the throttle tube that the throttle cable rides on, thereby reducing the amount you have to twist the throttle to accelerate.
