    Didn't see this thread already, hope it's not a repost :hs:

    What does everyone have planned for winter upgrades?

    I'm a poor student at the moment, but I am doing a few small things - wheels getting powdercoated white, 520 conv +2 in the rear with Vortex sprockets and DID gold chain, and if I find some more money SS braided lines.

    Anyone else doing something cool?

    new set of progressive springs, CD player, better speakers, maybe a v-max rear differential and v-boost system.

    Replace the chain and sprockets on the SV... maybe finally get around to painting those scratches on the tank from when I went offroading. The GSXR needs an oil change stat, and I'm trying to decide whether to put on the slider I have or just order some race railz.

    install my pazzos, stompgrip, and rear sprocket and pick up a new helmet when the season starts.

    also got full oem plastics for $125 at the end of last season :)bowdown:), they need some minor glass work, projector retro and full paint/decals. haven't got the tank yet, will take pics when the time comes and maybe make a plastics/paint EDU.
