    Congrats on the new purchase. I'd do the safety mods first. D-plate, waveater clips, intake grate, Oetiker clamps on the oil lines or premix, etc. Do a search you'll find everything you need to know

    like we said --- start in the search option. all your questions will be answered cuz we have all had them... depending what your intended outcome is will determine what you use for parts. i think the most common is a 1200 grate it offers good overall performance . speed the 800 is it. this is only from what i have read

    I see a lot of threads stating 800 grates or 1200 grates, but my question is who makes them?

    Check out post #35 in this thread. And add wave eaters and an R&D intake grate to that list. Try posting in the classifieds section for the wave eaters and grate. You'll be able to get them a little cheaper than if you buy new.

    +1 on the above recommendations, but the oil lines already have band type clamps installed on 03-08

    oil pumps work fine on the EFIs unless you plan on modding heavily

    also tunnel reinforce and seal the pump shoe... step the sponsons... check for the throttle cable update

    thanks for the info. i'll post some pics later. i'm probably not going to do a whole bunch to it. maybe stage one riva, m-16 reed kit and the r&d heads. I figure that should get me close to 70mph and have it cornering like it's on rails.
