Just bought a 2013 with 20k kms on the clock, already has a few extras

But my big question is:

What are the must get accessories and must do mods for these bikes?

Thanks

Welcome to the xjroc ! Must have extras are a personal choice, but I think most people go for a custom seat, 4 degree advancer, exhaust cans, the list is endless really. Plenty of members in oz mate, and becoming a full member will open the forum more to you. Cheers.

Get the correct year one too, then you can also tinker with new sprockets to alter rev to speed up or down depending what sort of riding ya doing.

Anyway welcome from Logan city in QLD.

The only thing you need is time to ride it. Then fix up the bits you want.

This is a 2013, not sure it needs one, but it is a bit hard to start, when cold.... Greetings from next door, Slacks Creek
