I just got a 86 XL 600 it is stock except for the Supertrapp Slip on. I want to do a few hop up mods and get some new plastics and Graphics for it. What mods should i do first? i am going to be taking it to the Dunes in two weeks.

Thats an older bike so I'm not sure with out spending a lot of money. When I had my XR600 the biggest difference in power was running higher octang gas. Around 95 works good. It puts a little kick in it's punch. You can add boost, or mix race gas with 91. Unless it's really hot out I wouldn't go any higher than 95-96 octang. The hotter the bike runs the higher the octang you can use.
