I'd say I'm in between the first two. I only got 3 performance mods and the rest is mostly cosmetic, but mods none the less.

Define "Minor" mods....

If a full 4-2-1 exhaust, PC3USB, K&N airfilter, Second Look tank bra, and frame/swingarm sliders are considered "Minor" then yeah, I guess I have only minor mods.....

Mine has hit the "Pipe" also titanium bars and blacked out shield. Nothing else needed. It is fast enough for me and now sounds good.

Modded but very little. I lost way too much money when I sold my modded out VN800 that this one is staying pretty close to stock.

What mine came with:

Yosh RS-3 Carbon fiber (cracked and replaced by OEM can, for now...)

Cat eye front turn signals (replaced with 1/2 teardrop turn signals)

Dark Smoked windscreen (still there)

Hiper H4 bulbs (blu-ish in color, and still there)

not going to do much to it except get a new can, and possibly get new fairings and repaint the whole thing some color.

Have you looked at the companies website.. i know Muzzys... my exahust... plus many others offers replacem,ent sleeves for pretyt cheap, prob be the way to go on the CF can if the rest is not damaged. But CF does crack on bikes that keep hot a long time, not the pipe to go for touring, thats why i swayed form it, but u could also prob replace it with a Ti sleeve that wouldnt have that issue and still be light or a SS sleeve cheap.
