My first mods were aesthetics only, a comp werkes fender eliminator short stalk blinkers and a buell M2 flyscreen. I'm thinking about getting a powerbronze chinspoiler but besides that what should I do performance wise? I'm open to suggestions but not without careful thought and explanation. I don't want to do something for no "apparent" reason. So give me your suggestions. I have a 2002 Black 650N, bone stock down to the tires. What should I do and why?

suspension (unless you weigh ~130LBS). THe stock springs are to light and make for a spongy ride.

de-snorkle and re-jet. It's cheap and will give you alot more power for the cost.

The bike came with frame sliders and handlebar sliders as well. I thought the TRE mod was only 2nd gen bikes? I'm 170 lbs.

I'm assuming a R6 throttle is simply a throttle from a Yamaha R6?? But I'm sure I'm wrong.

No, TRE (Timing Retard Eliminator?) mod is a wire snipping that basically de-restricts 1st and 2nd gear (restricted as stock to meet noise standards); PAIR valve is 2nd gen only, maybe that is what you were thinking of? TRE mod doesn't give you horsepower, it just makes 1 and 2 get to shifting RPM a little faster...HTH

You are correct; brief search on this site will give you correct part #; look to spend $10-15 at your local Yamaha dealer; it is a 1/5 turn throttle as opposed to the 1/4 turn stock SV; no horsepower, it just requires less time and effort to go WOT...

In brief, getting more air and fuel to the carbs, respectively. More air with more fuel = bigger bang..

Heres my 2 cents,the best money spent is suspension upgrades. More power with out controle will likley get you into troble.My bike came cheap so I have done a bit to it,the rear shock hasbeen the best upgrade bar none and made me faster and more confidant. The bike is also eaaser to get out of troble. If you are under 170# then focus on the rear. Take it for what its worth.

If you want power mods, I'd say do the cam swap over carb work- the reason being the cam swap is drop-in while you can spend forever trying to get your carbs set up right. Of course, if you take it to a dyno to get set up that's not an issue, but that drives the price way up. The R6 throttle swap's great, especially at the price. And I like the 4 degree ignition advancer for a street bike, more torque where you want it- personally I'd trade torque in the middle for power onthe top any day of the week.

I'd totally agree that handling mods- suspension and brakes- are better than power mods, though. Springs and oil are a good first step, and you can go with emulators later if you choose to.

Okay that explanation is okay for the de-snorkel but what exactly does a re-jet entail?

I think I want to do:

1. Springs and oil
2. Rear shock swap
3. SM Type 1 handlebar
4. SVS or adjustable rearsets
5. Front SS brake lines
6. R6 throttle

How is that for priority??

I've heard different takes on the rear shock swap. Any advise? I don't mean to stir up a can of worms but there are alot of gsxr shocks on ebay which would I be looking for and what would I have to do to it once I got it to dial it in for me?
