mods are.
there are alot of mods.. gearing (sprokets), suspension, wheelie bars, but WTF do you want to know....stunt bike or what?? If so just stick a dinner plate on the back and you are good to go.
heres a pic of a friends stunt bike...he just really f'd it up so he made it a stunt bike.

Yeah, find a used SV650 to start on. (dont buy bulldogs :D ) Great bike to start on, and then if you want to step in to the world of stunting they are also great wheelie machines, I like watchin the one dude from scooter trash on the SV, that bike looks fun to whip around like that.

As far as stunt mods, most important is to change your gearing. That means altering the ratio between top speed and acceleration. Stunt bikes are geared massively towards the acceleration side, to get the wheel up with ease. Other common mods for stunters are also stainless steel brake lines, and better than stock brake pads. Gotta have a lot of initial bite for those stoppies.

That help at all, any questions?
:iagree: the SV is a great bike to learn on, and stunt with..I do it all the time :lol:
:iagree: with Gas Man here...If you don't have any general motorcycle rideing experience...than you simply can't just jump on a stunt bike and go to town with it. You MUST learn the basics or more advanced skills of rideing on the street with handleing the bike before you just hop on a stunt bike and start popping wheelies, stoppies, rideing on the tank, endo's, slideing the rear tire, burnouts.....the list goes on.
If you do have street rideing experience ignore what I just said, but you seem to be clueless on stunting period so I assume you don't have any rideing experince or at most very little.
I would recommend takeing the MSF course, get a bike get the feel and basics of rideing...then take the "advanced MSF Course." That will teach you more in depth how to control the bike. Then you are all on your own to learn, or option B take a stunt course that may teach you how to stunt.
First off you need to find a used bike that is not in the greatest shape that atleast runs good.
