Nice bike, looks freshly cleaned in that pic

Maybe start with a :

Fender eliminator
Integrated tail
Flush mount front turn signals: clear,smoke,or amber(I went amber, stock color)

Then move on to:

Hid's
Exhaust upgrade
Adjustable rear sets
Shorty levers

Oh yeah please upgrade ur automatic cam chain tensioner(cct)
To an APE manual cct.....trust me, and do it b4 u hit 12000 miles

Best o luck

Welcome to the house. Im with the other's on mods. You don't have to get it all done at once. Ask anyone here there bike is always needing another mod. Nice looking bike.

First of all, welcome!

Cam Chain Tensioner. It takes up the slack in the cam chain (the chain is what turns the cam shafts and it is driven off the crank). The stock one doesn't work for long, especially at high RPM.
IMHO, before you go buying any "go fast" stuff dump a little money in the stoppers: SS brake lines and a good set of pads. Don't go with any pads marked for "Road racing", they need to be hot to work and you can't get them hot enough on the street.

+1 on the fender eliminator, shorty levers and exhaust.....also a tinted windshield and some red rim tape would look great.

You think you want a slip-on exhaust or the whole deal? there are a bunch of threads about exhausts.....I'll find you a link :)

oh, and welcome!

Hello and welcome! Lotta cool people here with a lot of good advice.
My first choice on mods would also have to be a fender eliminator kit. Then some flush mount turn signals. Check out eBay for fender eliminators, you can find some decent kits there for cheap. I fabricated my own, so if you're handy you can do it yourself for cheap as well.
