ok so what i have done to it/planned is well the jardine pipe
flush mounts for the front
intergrated taillight/blinker comb
made the tail one peice ans kinda made it smoother see pic
new mirrors
plugs
air filter
fog air box mod of course :)
tuned the carbs for the exhaust
installed a Barnett heavy duty clutch
got chrome decals for it
painted it viper blue with blue pearl
fender elminator kit
new levers
new grips
new windscreen
new chain an sprocket( stock gearing)
oh and a 75/90 watt super white light bright as hell way better than stock headlight bulb

anywho figured i'd share what i have done to the beast not as crazy as some mods but hey not too bad for being a piece of crap at the start

I like how you did the tail, I did pretty much the same thing to mine. Except mine is a gen 1 so the back was already one peice and I integrated the sides to it.
