I will be taking over the DIY mod list for Bigjohnsd!

Do It Yourself - DIY Mod List

These are all DO IT YOURSELF mods that require very little or no $$$ to do.
Please do not respond to this thread. If you have any DIY mods to add or links to DIY mods please send me the link in a PM.

I will continue to edit this thread.

All mods posted here are simply different ideas members have come up with to modify their own bikes.

In no way does RSWARRIOR take any responsibility for any damages as a result of you performing any of these mods.

You perform these mods at your own risk.
