Not much other than aesthetic mods.
Ditch the fender, double bubble, better grips, rear sets (or not if I can figure out gp shift), tank grips.
Still undecided on exhaust but I really dig SC project. Iíll have the ecu flashed eventually as well. The basics really.

If you want to meet up this weekend (or any other) once the rain clears let me know as I just followed you on Instagram. I'll let you have a go at either my 4th gen or 5th gen so you can feel the difference in the bikes. I lived in Tucson for 10+ years before moving back home to MN for a while and recently permanently relocated back to AZ after doing the snowbird thing for a few years. Moved just outside of Phoenix so I don't know the roads here yet and would like to find some riding buddies to show me where the good roads are!
Well shit theirs your ECU flash... Why cant the rest of us get that lucky lol

If youíre considering an upgrade I think itís worth it just having the electronics. If you upgrade to a 2019 youíll get the qs and autoblip stock. Itís a game changer man.

Iím 5í11 and around 180 and the seating position is better for me also. If you like track riding to me the 06s seat was better because it was thinner and more rounded. On the 19 I found it more difficult to slide around in the seat with my leathers on.

Pic because itís a dope ass pic
