What mods are good or suggest for A 2006 cbr 1000

well as it reads , looking to do some mods in look and performance. what do you all suggest. My ideas so far are CTS race levers in blue, black thuinm knobs, blue colored sprocket and discs, new windsheild maybe blue or yellow, Looking at exhausts but not sure really what to get.



It is not about how hard you can hit! Its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!

Don't judge me based on your ignorance.

Fender eliminator is something to get rid of that huge nasty mudflap on the back of your bike.

on a honda, i think Two Brothers Racing exhaust is the

Ok checked it out and see what it is. looks like it will work well with the aftermarket exhaust.

two brothers sounds so good, i have the Carbon fiber one on my bike and love it.

Basically....do a windscreen...cowl seat.... drop the passenger pegs, fender delete, flushmount turn signals, exhaust, pilot powers, grips, levers, rear sets and u should be set....gets a lil $ tho.

Right now all i have are flushmounts, fender delete, black-chrome windscreen, two brothers, tank pad, took off some stickers and the reflectors, and did the flapper mod...its a free performance mod...search here or on a honda forum for directions...pretty easy.

welcome aboard.

Pilot Powers are Michelin tires that are good grippy tires for corners. If you don't plan on riding corners hard, just get something that will last you long on straight roads.

Heavier bar ends would reduce the vibes in the clip-ons. That would help. Are you putting weight on your hands when you ride? You shouldnt be.

No no weight or overgripping. Vibration doesn't seem to bad but I will try that too.

You should be able to kill off the heat shield, at least trim it up so you dont have the metal sticking out. I did mine yesterday. Mine looks freakin clean with that new akrapovic on it. I will take some pics tonight.

Well go to a muffler shop or machine shop or something. Have them make the cut right at the pipe-can interface, then cut the pipe down an inch, then re-weld the pipe-can interface. They'll probably do it somewhat cheap.
