  1. Hello everyone!

    So today I purchased my very first motorbike can't wait to pick it up next Saturday (damn work responsibilities). Regardless I'm still excited and cheer like a little kid when I'm able to find some aftermarket goodies for my bike. However once i start reading more about the specific item it either lists date till 2008 or even 2011 and I was wondering what exactly has changed with these models.

    I know that grips are universal and doesn't matter which one I get, but what about levers (clutch & brake) or even clip-on handle bars? I've seen someone post here a photo with these http://i.imgur.com/Vd9yXZm.jpg and from what I understand preferable I get those "L shaped" clip-ons because straight bar would be hitting the tank on full-lock.

    Then comes electrics I'd really prefer to get tail-light with integrated indicators however once again models are listed up to 2008 or 2011.
    Oh and I'd really love to add gear indicator (saw some cheap knock-offs for $25 on ebay) was wondering how tricky are they to install ?

    Foot-pegs was another thing I looked at but it's not really on my priority list to upgrade, but would be great to know if these are universal or should I be vary of what I purchase?

    And finally all might EXHAUST!
    I've looked up at some slip-ons on ebay and was able to find few for $400ish. Should i only stick to the ones that are listed under my bike or any slip-on works regardless?
    Should I even bother with full exhaust-system? saw this beauty http://img.webike.net/catalogue/19070/A120-168-3411-2.jpg

    Sorry for long post but as I mention I'm truly excited about my bike and would love to know whats save to play around and whats best left stock!

    Thank you ladies and gents
