I was wondering if anyone knows of any free or cheap mods for cyclones.
So far the only one I have seen is to gut the bread box and put a K&N filter in it. Has anyone done this?
Or does anyone know of any way to build a new air intake on the cheap?
Or any other mods in general.

You can cut some plastic off the license plate bracket to make your own version of the 'Tail Tidy' thing. I took off the heat shield, just for looks.
And painted the front sprocket cover to match the engine, I think it looks a little better, that was cheap.
One can polish the exhaust header, that's almost all labor.
One of the most important modifications, for me, were the stainless braided brake lines, front AND rear. Not exactly cheap, but for the money, one of the most valuable changes.
