    I am more comfortable on it now and starting to really enjoy it. I have done the following since ownership....
    300v oil and K& N oil filter
    Motul 660 brake fluid
    Speed bleeders
    Brembo road/track pads
    Supercorsa SP tyres (MACH 1 WANGARA)
    Fork seals done and suspension set up. (DYNO TIME WANGARA)
    Tech spec tank pads
    GPR steering damper
    GB racing engine covers
    Renthal grips
    Translogic quickshifter and blipper (PRO TWIN WANGARA)
    Tail tidy
    GYTR muffler.

    I got the bike very cheap so that allowed me to throw some fruit on it.

    I will get an ECU flash done soon just to smooth out the jerky throttle.

    Great machine.

    Ok so money is no object then?
    Get some rearsets and take the time to set the leavers etc in the right position. Then get the static and sag set on your suspension remembering to do it with all your normal riding gear on.
    These are not expensive mods but will make a big difference. Then get as much track time as you can.

    A 1K throttle is like a hot blond, you really want to hit it but you are afraid of the consequences :black eye:

    I have set up the levers and suspension but may need further adjustments down the track. Got 2 track days booked in already.
    Bikes are cheap compared to track cars.
    Cheers

    The new style vortex rearset for this model are mint, I'll be upgrading eventually from the old style vortex ones.

    Honestly, best investment now would be rearsets then some tracktime!

    Will check them out. What improvements over stock? Cheers Bloke.

    Looking forward to getting rid of my chicken strips on track.

    They are stiffer, have way more grip and can be adjusted to get the correct leg position (easier and more comfortable to ride etc).
