OK, what's the best mod to a 900 carbe'd duck after slip ons, dyno-jet kit and open air filter? Some say lighter flywheel (200$) and others say 11:1 pistons (290$)....Any comments. Assuming a person is capable to do all the work themselves!

Both are good mods, personally I like a open clutch cover and you can design it yourself and fabricate it. Oh, and cost nothing.... If you have the tools ;)

After just doing it a couple of weeks ago, I have to vote for changing to 15/41 sprockets. It just makes everything better from acceleration to drivability.

It is not the same as just staying in a lower gear.

Get the Dyna Coil Kit from CA-Cycleworks. Improved idling and starting, and better overall running. Never heard a bad word about it.

I'd have to agree that the bang-for-the-buck award probably goes to gearing changes. You'll get more useable power where you need it, at the sacrifice of some top end.

Also, this wasn't really your question, but you might want to put the money toward a track day class. I know my bike is capable of more than I can get from it, and I'd venture to guess that this is true more often than not. Obviously I don't know your particular situation, and it may not apply, just something to think about.

I'd rate clip-ons as a cost-effective performance mod, but that recommendation will cause a lot of controversy. He l l, other guys are looking for a MORE upright riding position.

I found the bike to handle much better with the lower riding position and associated weight shift.

Thanks all for the help. Guess I should qualify this a bit more: This is my "fun" bike I fell in love with- it has the gearing changes already, vented clutch cover and I've done alot of track days (on an RS250). I'm really looking for something do work on as I'm bored... Valves need adjusting soon and thought whilst I was tearing into the bike I'd do something "fun" yet not costly.......

You guys are pretty good.....I am 30! and can add that yes, Viagra does work for those who are normal! Think of it as adding a nitro system to an already fast bike. Being a former Viagra salesman I was "required" (so I told my girlfriends) to test the pill......Sildenafil Citrate is a wonderful drug for young and old alike! A selective PDE-5 inhibitor that aids the body's natural response to stimuliiiiiiiiiii

Lower the front and raise the rear, it's free and it will add a lot to your quickness in turning and front end feel. I just bought a spocket & chain kit 15/42 520 chain and it was 195. still money left for small goodies.
