We've got a favorite mods topic and I was thinking that while the good stuff like shocks and exhausts are great I get alot of satisfaction from cheap or even free mods. Many of these mods can make a huge difference.

List you're "Tip's & Tricks" that can really make a difference without hamering your wallet.

Stock filter Mod : The stock filter on the 700XX is actually a quality item, the main restriction is the steel inner cage. All you need to do cut the perforated steel part out (or cut holes) so you keep the frame of the cage but get rid of the restriction. This will keep the filter in place but provide much less restriction and increase performance. You will be surprised at how much difference this makes.

So, what little tip, trick or part do you reccomend in these difficult financial times?.

Adjusting the angle of the handlebars and controls makes a huge difference in the riding position and comfort.
Removing the plastic guard inside the airbox takes away some of the restriction.
Tweeking the air pressure in the wheels really helps too. Get a good, cheap digital pressure guage and raise/lower the pressure 2/10th of a pound at a time to see what works best for you. Do this on the same section of trail/track to really see the changes.

I'm running 6.4 in the front and 6.2 in the rear tires and that works good for me.

I'm running 5lbs in front and rear - guess I need to bump them up.

Would you need an EFI tuner for this mod?

I think my favorite (cheapest) mod has been the Gixxer Slip on haha. 06 - 07' Suzuki GSXR Slip On from Two brothers for GSXR 600/750. And an exhaust adapter from AutoZone ($2.80)

IMO you should get a tuner for all EFI quads. Even a stock quad can gain from a controller.......unfortunately they are not cheap.

I like the Gixxer slip-on you have; although I'm sure it will be very loud. That setup will need a tuner of some sort. There is just too big a difference between the open gixxer silencer and the stock 700XX setup with all its internal baffles etc:......

I haven't got access to one but I think a '06 TRX450 (not '04 ~ '05) silencer with HRC end cap would be a great cheap mod for the 700XX.

Weather you know this or not, it'a really great tip as (I'm willing to bet) that there are a lot of cheap (see "inexpensive") aftermarket options for the Suzuki GSXR out there even like you got, a second hand one.

Great looking out 5W0P3!

I wonder how a STOCK GSXR muffler would sound...
