Thanks guys. I really love these forums, there is so much useful information available. I've just been riding my bike stock and as it was for the past 4 years, and this year I've begun to make it my own. I bought a 2001 600, it was very clean with only 7k miles. It came with a full d&d exhaust that sounds amazing. The only other things done to it was a fender elimination in the rear. So far i've just added some custom tail lights (directionals) that are the same cone shape as the brake light. I feel safer with a much bigger light than the tiny ones that it had. I also added a stereo with the speakers mounted to the mirrors, and a hand control mounted to the triple tree, but I think I may remove them and just use a sena setup in my helmet.

Right now my bike is in pieces! I'm upgrading chain and sprockets to high quality steel and changing the ratio a bit. Just one down and one up to give it a little more snap, I don't need to go 140 on the big end. I plan on painting the rims and fairings while I have it all tore apart. It's mainly red with a splash of black which I like but I really want to make it white and black. So I'm painting the rims black, leaving the belly black, and turning the front fairings and gas tank white and the rear pieces under the seat black.

I'll get some pics of it when I'm done and probably post in another topic. Be safe all.
