Your worst mod
How about a list of the worst mods you have done to your bike (that you're willing to admit to)? We all know about the mods that are popular and work well. I'm curious as to what mods people have made that they later regretted.
I've personally got 2 that really pissed me off. The first was a big bore kit in my old 87 CBR1000F. It worked just fine unless I was in any traffic and then it would overheat really quickly. I should have bought some used cylinders and gone 1 over on the stock pistons instead of Weisco. Hindsight is always 20/20. That bike did run like a raped ape though. It was a comfortable bike, too.
The second have been frame sliders. On the ZX they weren't bad because I didn't have to hack up the bodywork. I was able to take them off and give them to a forum member in need. Every time I put my foot down my shin and knee would hit the slider. I don't personally care for sliders and haven't had good experiences with them. On my RC51, I had to cut holes in the bodywork. I didn't mind at first-they were fine. But I later decided that I didn't want sliders on and couldn't take them off w/o the holes being there. Plus, I found a great set that were no cut made buy a guy in Germany. Thorsten Durbhan I think is his name. His sliders looked like they would actually work.
The ATRE on my ZX is on the fence. I have my doubts as to whether it really does anything. I really dig having a gear indicator though.
Ok, so fess up. What are your worst mods?
Have a wheelie nice day!
