Do the clean air mod super easy to do and the cheapest, especially If you have a slip on. You can buy my used 954 short stock mirrors for $40 since I ordered a brand new set from Honda when I just bought the bike finding out it already had the stubby 954 on the bike(I'm a total idiot and wasted like $120 on new mirrors when I didn't need to). There isnt a whole lot of cheap mods... You have to pay to play.

I don't have any pictures uploaded online but on my phone I do. Here is a reference but mine is not painted gloss black, just the oem black plastic.

954-carbon fiber style

THeres tons of stuff. You can cut your pipe down into a shorty, cut your windscreen, reverse your shift arm thingy so you have a gp shift pattern (1 up 5 down, all three of those are free mods), hid kit from ddm which should only cost about $40-50, hid retrofit which would only be like $140, you can do the passenger peg led mod which is cheap as long as you arent completely untalented. Hell, think of something you wish your bike had or does and come up with your own mod. Browse the how-to section youll find tons of cool/cheap stuff you can do to your bike. good luck

Change the sprockets.
You could go 1 down in the front for like $20, definitly the most noticeable performance mod for cheap

Gp setup is this. Right now your gearing is one down 5 up. Go setup is 1 up 5 down. Really not necessary Imo. But up to you.
