Immediate mods or must change on brand new F4

Hi, i'm trying to get an idea of what fellow F4 owners do 'immediately' to improve the performance/handling/looks from brand new.. I can immediately think of below based on the specs I got from my dealer:

1. Tyres - swap the dunlops with the Pirelli Diablos
2. Clutch slave - STM? I pulled the clutch on the F4 1000s at the dealership and it was heavy as hell..
3. Remove tail lights

Pls add to the list.. cheers

'09 F4 1078 (monoposto) + '12 Brutale 920

Why would you swap the Dunlops?

New Site Garage
1) remove one of the throttle return springs to ease throttle response
2) install HID kit if you intend to ride at night ever
3) replace slippery stock rearsets with something better
4) clean up tail section with a kit from one of our site sponsors
5) remove all reflectors on tail and front fender of the bike!!

there are sure to be many more, but these are some pretty easy inexpensive ones. Have fun!!

Def clean up the reflectors. Perhaps tidy the tail area. The Clutch is fine for me and its virtually effortless and so are the throttle springs so I dont know what everyone is talking about.

Rearsets. Get some rearsets and make it a little more comfortable to ride.

Just ride it, it's not a value-engineered japanese bike, all bits are top quality and ready to race.

I put some Rizoma grips on, but only because I had them as extras. The F4 doesn't need any mods. I will do some later, like rearsets but I don't feel the need like I did on my Rice burners. It's as close to a perfect bike that you can buy (for the money).
