Hi Davie, welcome to the forum.

Lots of help and knowledge on here. Many of the guys have done some pretty neat upgrades, but these bikes are great to ride as a standard bike. Mines pretty much stock, except for de-linked brakes and a higher screen.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, keeps these forums alive.

Welcome to Bird ownership.
Strange things these Birds you get attached to them.
I bought my first one 22 years ago to get my now wife on the back of a bike .......... and that bike still sits in my garage with a further 120,000 miles on the clock!

Welcome from a 98 Carby Bird owner. Had mine since 1999, so shes a keeper.
Mines stock with the exception of a double bubble screen and a full Non Fango luggage system.
Just love her as she is, so does the wife so that's a bonus.

Exactly my situation. Me and the misses ride together alot. Had 216,000 miles on her before the accident. Putting her back together and we'll keep adding the miles.

Welcome,
Beautiful Blue.
Don't let Beestoy scare you! Ride the bike for a season and then decide what you want to do and you can do it over years so the wallet pain is bearable!
I've done a few upgrades over the years and listed below in order of preference if I was starting over.
0. Helibars but I would like the vari- bars that Beestoy has. But vfr or Helibars are good. I'm 6'3".
1. Suspension - DMR by Jamie Daugherty. Less expensive than Traxxion Dynamics... but either are worth it!
2. Beestoy's electronic cruise control
3. MRA Vario touring adjustable lip windshield
4. LED lights all the way around
5. Corbin seat
6. Cameleon Plus electronic automatic chain oiler. I have 20,000 miles on my chain and sprockets and still have many more miles to go.
6. Top box and panniers with SW/Motech 1/4 turn removable mounts. Everything is off in 3 minutes. I tour all over when the mood strikes me.
7. Voltmeter display of some type.
8. Power sources, one which incorporated a Voltmeter display.
9. Quad-lock wireless waterproof phone charger holder! Love it on trips.
10. DanMoto carbon fiber slip on mufflers to lighten the weight. Least expensive compared to other choices. Louder but I always wear earplugs when riding.
11. K&N air filter
12. EBC HH brake pads when originals wear out.
13. Electrical Connection battery lead extensions so you only have one thing to remove when disconnecting the battery... instead of all the power source, phone charger source, heated gear pig tails, etc. Electricalconnection.com is where I also sourced a lot of my LEDS too.

Mods in the future...
1. Mosfet Reg/Rectifier
2. Slipper clutch
3. Power Commander with a dyno-tune.
4. Upgrade the brake rotors

That is about it... and still much cheaper than a new bike. Plus, I enjoyed doing all the above.
