06 Ninja with 4k miles. Only mods coming are taking off the rear fender and intergrating the rear turn signals into the empty pods by the brake light. And of course flush mounts for the front signals. (Sport demon tires but thats not really a mod) Other then that just ride away till oct. or so when I will be picking up a 600 I4.
The only thing I've done to mine is add extra brake lights in the pods.
I'm thinking about cutting off the fender if I decide to keep it for a while. and would prolly also get KIA flushmounts in the front. Cheap-O MT-75 rear tire and stock dunslip on the front (I got a nail in the rear tire so I had to replace it)
Any tips,comments,advise I can get would be appreciated
All I can say is do some research. Check ebay, Cycle Trader, craigslist, etc, to get an idea on what they're going for. If you know someone with one, try and see if you can sit on. You might find out that a regular sit-up streetbike might be more comfortable than a sportbike. Not to rag on anyone's ride or anything. I read reviews and stories about the V-Strom for 2 years before I decided that was what I wanted.
