Just want to say thank you to everyone here, you're sharing of information, pics, tutorials and such are greatly appreciated.
As such, I've recently installed a Rockford Fosgate PBR300-2, which all the positive reviews were 100% correct, small but plenty powerful amp, a bit too much as I "accidently" over loaded the factory Kicker 5.25" speakers, shucks, now I am ordering a set of Polk DB6501 6.5" replacements
Today I installed the Lloydz Precision Timing System, actually only took me 13min 24sec, yeah I had the timer on, after reading how simply it was. Great modification, despite the nasty squall we had roll in this weekend, I can already tell its smoother running, quicker accelerating and will definitely slide the tail end out on wet roads way easier.
Tomorrow I will finish install Lloydz air filter. Juggling work, wifes work schedule, MC functions and watching daughter time is tight. I began tonight, took the seat off, d/c the tank bolts, ground wire, vent lines, cheese wedge. Tomorrow morning I'll pop the fuel line and wiring harness off, lift tank and viola, have the new filter sans rubber strip sitting in its rightful spot and assembled for more terrorizing of the asphalt.
I've made my own fork lowers using JP Cycles clamps and 1/4" thick lexan. Very effective for deterring wind buffeting, and keeping the legs drier during monsoon rains. Cost $80.
I've also made my own soft lower covers. Using vinyl I had a roll of sitting around, went to the local sewing lady with one round crash bar, we cut, folded, sewn and then attached some webbing and quick d/c clamps. These with the lower fork deflectors are awesome keeping the elements off, yet they also direct airflow straight to the engine. EZ on/off in about 6-seconds. Cost $5.
The list of mods is of course plentiful, and with the discovery of VictoryForums I am avoiding some uninformed mistakes, able to make my purchases and modifications with good intel. Knowing that I can do my own work, plus armed with the experience from this site, I almost feel like I was born to have my Cross Country.
Enough ranting I suppose, but very glad to be here. I'll get pics tomorrow after installing the Lloydz air filter.
