Decision time ...

Okay, I have approximately $700 to spend on accessories/mods. Here's what is already done:
Sato full
PC III USB
Penske
16t CS sprocket

I'm thinking 636 mod ($250 approx w/ steel lines?), Pazzos ($185 w/shipping) & DJ quick shift ($278 plus shipping). These are all things I want, though the 636 mod is probably the only one I need.

I just want to make sure I'm getting the most bang for the buck - I can't afford to have the forks done yet or that would be the next step. Just looking for insightful feedback. Thanks guys!

Pazzo price seems way to high..the group buy was around $139 I'm sure our sponsor Pazzo can beat that price to help out on the other mods

brake upgrade is a good mod if u havent enough money to get the forks done,the brake mod is nexted for me i,ll prob go with brembo m/s and s/s lines. i,ve also considered the quick shifter but my 10 is a road bike and not used on track so as the bike does over 100mph in 1st my not be worth the expence

636 brake upgrade or brembo is a great start. Just did it recently, the other day. I was running through a city "course" that I have and was comming to a stop sign when I got that uh oh, maybe a little fast for this stop feeling. With 636mc it was no problem. Just the left over feeling in my head form the stock mc.

I want rearsets next, just bought pc3 and ign module from Ivan today so tapped out.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Yeah, I am agonizing over the quick shift vs ignition module. I'm pretty happy with the power and rideablilty as is, and I do a lot of trackdays, so that's why I'm leaning towards the quick shifter.

As for the Pazzos, the price is right from their website, so unless they're discounting for board peeps or I see another group buy going, I think that's the rate.
