Feel free to post up a picture too.

The order doesn't matter and I'm sure we all won't agree but here goes

1. Braided Brake lines (If you are supposed to replace the original ones every 4 years then why not just replace with these and forget about them) - I've got HEL ones - other makes are available.

Best mod, but I'd not seen done, would be to improve the headlight on the 'Cat. I remember there was a spate of people fitting HID bulbs but can't remember the success rate or reviews. Must be my age! old

Decent tyres. I have fitted a front d209 qualifier to replace the old outdated d207 which has transformed the feel from the front of the bike as well as my confidence.

7. Upgrading suspension front springs, rear shock - Hagon Ohlins etc.

8. Heavier / Thicker Front fork oil (5w is standard, Lots have changed to 10w and noticed a change for the better) - www.offwidth.co.uk/bike/cat/fork_oil.doc

I'm surprised no one has mentioned taking that original exhaust off and replacing it with a lighter and louder one. I changed my spark plugs to NGK Iridiums and put k-n air and oil filter.
