Hi guys.. Recently purchased my 650 and loving it. Want to make a few subtle changes soon. Spent the last few nights reading through this forum and hope in time I may be able to be as helpful to others as you guys seem to be. Click image for larger version

Welcome to the forum! And congrats for a rather fine ride, you will enjoy it.

As for mods or upgrades, I recommend the resonator delete as a quick and simple upgrade for both performance and drive-ability. Springs are another fun upgrade, a reprogrammed chip and brake rotors are another to-do item. But until then, enjoy the ride.

It doesn't say what year model & where your from? Take the time to fill out your profile where others know what you have. It looks like you have a Euro model.

Welcome Aboard!

Love the oxblood interior, although it would take me a while to learn to shift with my left hand...

Tints done..

Looking to maybe attack the exhaust next, I love the sound but feel it could be louder under load.

Any suggestions?

Triple resonator delete wth x pipe is a fairly cheap and popular first step. It's not a big boost in sound but enough for many -- I did it for less than $150 and am happy with the result. Lots of info and debate on this topic here.

Delete the resonators, install an x-pipe in place of the front two.
