-1 on front sprocket $40 (probably cheaper, depends on where you get it), Rifleman 1/5 throttle insert, SpeedoDRD from motomummy $70 (Personally don't have it but members here have some good reviews about it.)

Is it hard to get the chain adjusted back to where it's supposed to be after i put on the sprocket? I have a new '12 gen4 and on my service the shop adjusted it for me.

I like your selection.
I'm fairly new here and have seen a lot of posts about riflemans cable. What's the advantages of it?

Basically it gives you a shorter throw throttle. Quicker to wo throttle.

Technically it takes 1/5th of the turning required to go WOT away. Instead of it being a 90 degree turn it is now a 72 i believe. Just reading about the number though doesnt do it justice. If i had to take off every other mod done to my bike, and pick one, i would personally choose the 1/5th. I mean you get the most noticeable difference from it than almost any other mod i have done. Also it is only $25. I mean seriously, there is no mod that can even come close to what the 1/5th does, especially for that cheap.

The only bad side to doing it is you will never want to ride another bike without one again! I personally will never own another kawi that doesnt have this installed.

Thanks guys! Hopefully I don't have a hard time installing it. Never done anything with these type of clutch/throttle cables etc.

You're being directed on the right path!

Riflemans 1/5 throttle insert, -1 sprocket, maybe a radiator guard ($55), or levers maybe. Possibly a cool sweatband to put over the master cylinder reservoir :thumbsup: lol

From a "keep your plastics from being ground into dust if you go down" stand point I would do sliders, spools and fork protectors. Plus the spools are great for rear stand use.

Yea, I'm not exactly sold on frame sliders. They are great if you only crash at low speeds or drop your bike.

I say windscreen and a 16T

It's not that difficult getting the chain adjusted, just make sure there is enough slack and not over tighten it.
