Default F4i Performance Mods?

Looking for some details on some more "exotic" mods that have been done.
I have most of the usual parts (PCIII, full exhaust, etc..etc..) but I am interested in some that are not talked about much.

Anyone upgrade the clutch, add a slipper clutch, front end conversions, swingarm conversions, all kinds of stuff like that.

Someone share some light about what they have done, and how it affects the bike. I need a new task to complete


I was thinking about adding some new rearsets, and a Scotts stabilizer already.

I want to do inverted forks myself. Its been done before, you'll get some good info on that around here.

As far as the swingarm, people put 600rr swingarms on but they add weight. even SSSA's add weight compared to stock.

I don't hear much about people doing performance mods to f4i's besides the typical PC and exhaust, sprockets and so on. Could you do cams? (air filter too if you haven't already). Besides that...There isn't much to do unless you are willing to rip the entire engine apart and get it bored and a bunch of custom work, but by then you will spend more money than it would take to buy a 1000. And the 600 still won't be as powerful as a 1k.

So I'd just stick to the basics like I mentioned

Do you want performance mods or mods to look cool? Front and rear end swaps are for cool factor. Aftermarket shocks and fork internals are for performance. You decide.

So a front end swap wont do anything for performance? Even switching to inverted forks?

Im not so much trying to make my bike like a liter bike, more interested in customizing and making it unique.

Ive already done the air filter, sparks, pretty much all the usual engine parts. I dont really want to do major engine work such polishing, new headers, etc. Mostly looking at "bolt on" mods. I'd even consider a front end swap a bolt on, since theres really no major modification needed.

Anything will improve vs the stock front end setup. With the goals you seem to have a swap would be a good idea for you. Theres lots of info on it here just do a little searching.
