In my mind all that bike needs is the right jetting and a shock spring suitable for your weight (if stock isn't right). Anything else is personalizing it like handguards, steering dampner (I don't...

To raise it properly you need to provide lots of love and support, but you can't skimp on discipline - consistency is the key. Also, start a college savings account. :amazon
