Currently ride a 99 RT.

Looking for something lighter and easier to handle at low/no speed.

Have read a lot of posts on this forum.

Looking to buy a used 12 and up or a new leftover if cheap enough.

Willing to spend $ on necessary upgrades.

Seems like these are the common areas and if you have specific suggestions on them please let me know.

Suspension: Springs and other front suspension mods/upgrades.

Bar backs/ peg lowering

Windshields

Seats

Sidecases/top box

Skid plate/engine guards

Aux lighting.

Sprocket changes

Any other things I should be thinking about.

6' 1" 225 Always ride solo. Camp a lot.

Rode to Nova Scotia from S. Il last year. Repeating that trip again this year as well as a trip to Billings for the MOA rally.

Put a center stand near the top of your list. Among other things, it makes lubing the chain easier.

I'd do some miles with the stock gearing before changing. I tried the 16T front and went back to the stock front sprocket. Once you get used to the engine revs, you realize how happily it cruises at 6k rpms.:yesnod:

Agree on riding the bike first and making up your own mind on whats needed... at least on things like the windshield, seat, gearing etc... Center stand though is something I agree is needed.

I love my '13. I got a used one that was fully loaded with basically everything one could want so I didn't have to do any of the farkling myself.

Good luck and welcome.
