I bought a Murph's shifter kit while I was waiting on my bike to come in. Bike shifts great without it and it's a 5 minute job to grease it every Summer. The bearings would have to be loctited in. I thought it was a waste of $20 considering how the bike shifts.

Put on a McCruise. It took a while because I'm particular with wire routing but I thought the instructions were excellent and the product is great.

I used Murph's handlebar rises and they help quite a bit but aren't quite enough. He sells a gadget that angles them back toward the rider. I thought the risers were worth the money.

I mounted a GPS and radar detector using a PDM 60. It's small and will be easier to find a place to mount than a Denali Power hub. I used a Chinese lithium battery that has plastic risers to space the battery up to stock height. I put a thin aluminum plate between the risers and mounted the PDM 60 there. I was happy with the way it turned out and the wiring was shorter.

I used the Kawasaki accessory GPS mount and was happy with it. I mounted the radar detector off a ram mount going into the brake lever clamp.

That's it so far. Header, Ivan reflash and Russell seat after riding season. I think I will go with the Russell sport because it doesn't raise you up any and I don't want to hunch over to the bars.

Header, Ivan reflash
Why?? What header?
Normally aspirated engines have perpetual turbo lag
2000 Red C10 1052 kit 100+HP  + way more torque.
2008  C14 Silver Dammit Full AreaP- Flies are put back in SISF_Flash
2011  KLR650   688 piston ported and polished
2011  KTM 530    This thing is FUN!!

Ivan has an Area P header and is doing a dyno test on it and developing a flash for that header. I'll either go with that or his reflash for the Arkrapovic slip on.
