First Mods on a X

Ive still got my Shadow but it may be sold in the next week. Right now I been price shopping for a X and i should be replacing it in the Summer of 2014

I am looking at either a 06 to 08 year model with under 15000 model R or S i want the long fenders so that I can add the QQ bags and bagwing to turn it in to a Full bagger

but what is one of the first MOD that need to be done

when I need to replace tires I will be doing a 200+ on the rear (car or bike tires?) but I have read here and on the VTX Café about clutch mods air intake mods etc. just trying to see which way to go

and another ? is if i add a 10.5 shock can i still run the 200 and still ride 2 up or should i just keep it stock height

The 200 is bad ass, but with the R/S I think it gets lost. Don't see much of the tire with the long rear fender. As far as mods, depends on 1300 vs 1800.

1300 - STEM BEARINGS are a MUST. Glen's CPR. If it hasn't been jetted, Scar mod. If you want the 200 and rude 2UP I wouldn't go lower than 11" shocks. And even with these you will still need to grind down the inner fender rails. Seat change is also a must, if still stock.

Keep in mind, QQ bags are bad ass looking. But you will still need to do a bunch of prep work to make them work. I have heard they aren't perfect when you get them.
