Welcome to the club. First mod should be the thirteen tooth sprocket. Its cheap and it makes a world of difference. I took mine in for the twenty hour valve adjustment and my exhaust side was out of whack. I could here it tapping when it was ideling so I knew, but you can do everything else yourself. Just my valves cost me 68 bucks. Now I should be set for a while.

big3???

I did the 13t front sprocket yesterday and just a quick rip down the road and it seems alot better all that chugging and bogging seemed gone at low speeds:yay:

what other quick mods can I do ? do the power commanders / chips really liven them up what about intake / air filters?

and the dealer wants 275 dollars to do the inital check over and valve adjustment which seem ridiculous:disgust:

and last question are these 700's kinda lame until they are all broken in??? example will this thing wake up and start motivating?

Full exhaust, EFI, High flow Air filter=Big 3
275 is ridiculous....search for the service manual on here and download it to do it yourself, otherwise shop around should be able to get if for about a $100 or a little less(its easy to do yourself)

And yes the big three make a world of difference.
