far too vague.........
What is your goal?
What is your useage? street, track, commuter, canyon carver etc.........
obvioulsy make sure all the mechanicals are in the best shape as they can be;
carbs cleaned and synchronized...proper jetting never hurt any bike ever!!
forks serviced (minimum is oil changed and springs to get desired sag for how you ride)
shock and all accompanying linkages serviced
suspension set up....sag, damping adjustments etc
brakes at a minimum flush the fluid annually and keep them fresh and clean with good pads and clean rotors
chain clean, properly lubed, proper free play and properly aligned
tires good and the correct air pressues
coolant- not super old and has enough (at 21 years old you may well want to be thinking about new hoses)
air filter clean and in good condition
all the signals and lights work well and are easily visible to traffic!
functionally for you;
lever angles adjusted to fit your ergos
ninja 650 mirrors are an inch wider and 1.5" higher and bolt right on and offer tons more visibility
taller windshield, double bubble or not.....
swithable radiator fan is always nice
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
