Tires, remove spark arrestor and put a different tip on, 13t sprocket and possibly a uni filter. I dont see a need for the big 3, I rode with a big 3 XX the other weekend and you coudln't even tell he had more power than I did. We ripped around a track and I was right with him the whole time. Just my opinion, I'm sure there are plenty of people who will disagree. haha. Even with these simple mods the machine hauls ass compared to stock, I'd eventually like to get the fuel programmer from ehs as well.

I completely agree, fuel management is a must, but i started out with an exhaust tip and filter and it was a HUGE difference over stock...

IMO- Uni filter, 13T, 23" razr 2 fronts and 22" razr rears. The EHS/Barker big three made a very big difference on my bike, but with only $500 I would wait on a pipe and programmer. I love my Sonic and think it is worth every penny, but there will be more people that disagree with that than agree. With the Razrs and the Sonic, push and body roll are dramatically decreased and gone in most situations. Make sure that when you get feedback on any of the sway bar options that it is from someone who has run that type for a while. Also make sure that the sway bar feel is what you want. There are many who prefer the stock cornering characteristics and like to roll through the corners. There is a option that Kyle8ton is producing one that looks pretty sweet if adjustabilty isn't a concern.

I am not going to get into an arguement over this. Your opinion is different than mine, I am not going to tell you that you are wrong. I would never flip my rear tires, but I am not going to make a negative comment on it.

If you have some serious seat time one one with and one without you might have a shot at convincing me.

But that is the great thing about this site, one bike and hundreds of different opinions!

I agree that cost is a relative thing. It would pain me to spend that much for something aftermarket on my vehicle. But somehow, an ATV is different. It cured what bothered me the most about this bike, push and roll. So to me it was worth it.
