Update:
I already installed my new Road Burner 2 1/2" large radius pipes http://www.shadowriders.net/forums/s...ad.php?t=23738
Picked up a set up 11 1/2" Progressive shocks w/HD springs. Will see how I like them.
Already have an Irate customs flame skull radiator cover (just like the C2 had)
Gotta put on the chin scoop from the C2 onto the X
Purchased a Kuryakyn Pro-R Hypercharger used from a member on another forum, should have it soon
Ordered my FP stage 3 Jet kit yesterday
Bought glens perm. a/f screw new from another member on the CAFE
ordered my new bars. 1 1/2" CP Villain bars (pictured below)
Ordered pair valve block off plates
Purchased Kuryakyn transformer backrest
Hope to start by the end of the month, begining of Feb.

Got much more planned:
6* raked trees w/2" fork extensions
1800C rear wheel w/200 metz
New Seat
New mirrors
Glens clutch relief
Glens gas cap hinge
Possibly Forward control extensions(another member on the CAFE is working on a prototype like scootmods)
Probably more.......

UPDATE Jan. 25th 2012

So I had a day off of work and the kids were in school, so I got to do some work on the X today.
Put on the Irate customs Radiator Cover
Removed pair valve and installed block off plates
Installed Glens permanent a/f screw
Rejet with FP stage 3 kit. 220 main 58 pilot clip on 3rd notch a/f 2 turns.
Installed Kury ProR hypercharger
changed antifreeze , since the tank was already off.
Installed CP Villain 1.5" bars & re-routed cables behind the tree. (gonna have to get braided clutch cable and a little longer braided brake line)
I purchased new mirrors, like I have on the 750, should have them in a week.
I still have the Kuryakyn Transformer backrest to install.

Here is some updated pics of the progress







Yes, I forgot to remove the GARS. They will be gone soon
