I think the bike needs a new battery (weak, but works), a larger tank, fork seals and will probably get a Baja or similar kit so I can do loop rides here on the passes. I love the info I have found on this site and look forward to being active on the site. Any recommendations on favorite upgrades or links to stuff I need to know would be helpful. I have gone thru some of the FAQ and performance upgrade info. Link to common problems to be aware of might be nice. I weigh around 150 and have a long inseam, so I think the stock suspension will be about right for me. If I am going to buy a battery, I want the best, any recommendations? Any riders near me to ride some of the passes? Anyone has an extra oversized tank I could buy? Off to ride. thanks so much for everything, cheers, marcia

I put the trickdualsport kit on mine because the install was much easier.
The battery is rather pathetic. But I've never changed mine. Once it gets charged, it will be fine. It kicks so easy that the estart is rarely needed.
Get the tank (clear).
