You asked about mods?

Okay, so it already had most of the expensive stuff like 17s and stiff, but still long suspension straight out the box.

Like most stock bikes it was pretty rtestricted and lean so the mods are all to aid breathing and keep the torque throughough the rev band.

- supormoto tail can
- airbox cut and opened up
- eps? what eps?
- carb spring shortened 3 turns (stock Mikuni BST 40)
- slide air holes opened up
- needle all the way up
- main jet up to 170
- synthetic oil

That's it.

Oh- I added handguards as they're 1/3 the price of KTM levers!!

And I put that sticky black grip tape on the rad shrouds to I can 'hold' the bike better with my legs.

Okay- now show us yours

Someone hold him down for me please.

It has a little bit of orange on the rad shroud decals. It's taken all my self control NOT to pull them off!!

Now where are those pics of your Monster BEFORE you ruined it by paining it?

Ducati... whimper

Pierre, that's making me salivate!!

Please don't paint it orange!!

That is one of the most beautiful bikes I've ever seen.

It'll look very fine once it's finished.

Post Your Motard Pic

I have a bro back east who doesn't believe there are more than a hald dozen people in America riding Motard-ed bikes. Please post a pick of your bike here so I can send him a link to this thread and blow his mind.
