Are these tires Mitas E07 by any chance? If yes, do you like them?
I thought our drag race last spring was pretty telling- you were faster, but the difference wasn't $1500+ worth in my opinion.
I did think your mods made the throttle response better and made the bike more aggressive on the bottom end, but again, not good enough to drop the cash.
I think a fuel programmer alone would probably be the best bang for the buck mod.

Blue bike has Mefo Exploreres
Black bike has Dunlop D606s, now switched to MT21s, which I like much better...
Has anyone done a fork oil change,I've got go-race suspension that's in need of a change. I'm also interested in checking the head bearing-want to make sure it's properly lubed. Kind of chicken to delve into it-never done either before,but would like to do it myself if I can get a little help from the inmates
The seat is a Seat Concepts cover. Better than stock but still not a long distance touring seat. Good for the price, I think it was $160.
Both procedures are simple and straight forward even a caveman could do it.
Go for it.

Youtube is your friend. Both very easy tasks, just take it slow, note where everything is and where cables etc run and I find many beers help my work in the shed too.
Was it this thread where it was thought that the new James Bond movbie used a WRR???
It was a Honda, it seems. And you can own it.
I like Mr. Watson's work advice: more beer equals better wrenching results! Every time I take on a new task, I slow way down, follow the guides, and ponder dilemmas with a cold one
HERE HERE!! CHEERS!!!
Took advantage of the nice weather yesterday to get out for one last ride of the season (again). The start and the end of the day were both a little chilly, but it was nice for a couple of hours at mid-day.
I managed to tweak the right side hand guard during a little slide on some grassy two track. The ground was frozen and the grass was pretty slick. Lucky for me, I was wearing my Alpinestars Bionic Shorts ...

love those famous words "no I'm alright!". I almost believe you. Where are you? Doesn't look anything like Edmonton that's for sure. My jealousy is overwhelming my sense of compassion. Sorry.
No, really, I was alright.... Fortunately, I was wearing my Alpinestars Bionic Shorts, which took the brunt of the impact. My hip is a little bit sore today, but only 3/10 on the pain scale.
I'm in Ottawa and we've had some pretty nice weather for this late in the year. No snow yet, but I'm sure it won't be long!
Did you replace all those parts they list as "New"--seals & gaskets, in they service manual when you changed your fork oil. Do you need that special wrench they show you need to take apart the head bearing?
It's normally easier if you have the tools, but you can usually improvise. It's part of the learning experience
Same thing with the seals and gaskets. Lots of times, if you have a spare gasket you'll wind up not needing it. It's when you don't have the gasket that you wind up tearing the old one and get stuck. I'm guessing you're talking about the head bearing race that is pressed into the head tube? Those can be really hard to get out, and I've often left them in if they're in good condition. To reinstall you've almost got to have a hydraulic press...
