Thumbs up 2013 Ninja 650 MODS! Fender eliminator, frame sliders, windscreen and more!

Hey everyone I'll be making a walk around video of all my mods I've done to my new 650! Hope this helps anybody thinking about doing any mods themselves.

Well, the exhaust would cost twice as much as all those mods. To be fair.

As for the Avatar, maybe we should rename him Squidworth?

Nicely done, I'm digging the Yoshimura fender eliminator, where did you order it from?

I won't be doing an exhaust at LEAST until late next summer, I'd rather wait until after my final road test (which I can take as of July 2) so that they don't say anything about my bike like "you have an aftermarket exhaust so you can't do the road test with this bike" or some crap like that lol.

Huh? I count at least $250 on it now, a slip on costs what 3?

And OP, change your damn avatar

No slip-ons available for the 2012-2013 ninja 650's. Full exhausts cost minimum $550ish if not more (some up to $900). Or you could go the cheap route and buying a used older gen header and put a slip-on on that, but I feel like it may be a pain in the ass and on top of the price of a slip-on, you'd have to find a reasonably priced, used OEM header.

I picked up the yoshi fender kit from sportbiketrackgear for about $110

and why would I waste money on an exhaust for this bike when it is nearly $6-700 for a good exhaust? I think I'll put my money elsewhere

Damn, didn't you just get this bike like a week ago? All those mods already? Not going to have much left to do soon. Good for you!

The fender eliminator is a must have, no doubt. That appendage sticking out there looks so wrong with the rest of the bike.

Oh, forgot to mention...ATGATT!!

Yeah figured I would go ahead and knock it all out, only thing else I wanna do is gets new levers and new luggage. I had my heart set on this bike for about 6 months so I already had a pretty good idea of what I wanted it to look like, fender was the first to go! lol

that looks great man, awesome job. i have some reflective rim tape on the way, as well as an R&G tail tidy (did a DIY version for now, but glad a more 'official' version is on the way). i was considering getting a zero gravity tinted windscreen. i know its pretty self-explanatory, but can you elaborate a bit on the plastidip wind screen? is it just bought in a can? applied to the inside, and peels off pretty effortlessly i hear? any insight on that would be appreciative.

i also plan on getting frame sliders very soon.

very nice choices on the bike.
