So far as I've not had this one long, fitted to date are:

Yamaha bash/sump guard plate, already the front mounting rubber has melted and now the bike wears a Mechanic mod phase one to stop that problem happening again!

Yamaha (read Acerbis) reinforced hand guards.
Scot Oiler.
Rear swing arm modded to accept paddock stand/crash bobbins in alloy.
Shark fin added to rear lower chain run side.
Mechanic Phase One lower fork mushrooms in hard nylon, none of yer skate board bling.
Modded rear light...stops all that flapping.
05 ECU...although its an 05 bike..hee hee.
Other mods will have to wait due to warranty cover.

Planned for the not too distant future are possibly:

Ported and polished head with a cam..but which one..hmmm
PC111 or what ever is currently the one to have.
Nasal passages opened up...snorkel put on a diet. Filter changed to K&N.
Exhaust...hmmm...mod the original or fit Ackropovic ££££???
Definately front and rear suspender mods needed

By then some of you will have increased the want list Shocked
So I'll stop here and as I tend to change my bikes quite often the above might not get done. Wink

CCM R30, see General Chat for piccies.

The XT was beginning to get like a money pit. Kept throwing money at it to improve certain things and then ran out of money. The fuelling was still suspect as were other things like suspension so when I was offered a straight swop I took it Embarassed

Hi.
I also just bought a K&N filter. So what CO settings did you find as the best
