Just adding more thoughts..
I had an SP ordered, but after realizing I was about to pay over 18k OTD for it I started having second thoughts. My dealer got in a 22 plus with the clear clutch and full termi exhaust on trade and I went for it instead, figuring I’d make my own better version of the SP for cheaper. (SP damper being non adjustable, not the full termi system anyway with no option to buy their midpipe stand-alone)
So far the big things I’ve done..
-Ohlins NIX 30 cartridge kit for less than $900 shipped plus springs for my weight for $120
-Adjustable shock from Nitron for $750 shipped with spring for my weight
-Performance pads for the stock brake calipers and quality fluid
Plan on adding the adjustable Ohlins damper, Stylema calipers, rcs master cylinders, and lithium battery to complete “my SP”, but I’m honestly perfectly happy with the bike as it sits. It doesn’t have the gold tubes, no, but they weren’t weren’t worth $18k to me. And if I do end up doing the calipers and all that I’ll still be well under $18k..
