I've been a looong time lurker here and have had my RC8R for almost two years. Life got in the way as I haven't done much to it. I finally got some money and time to throw at it now. I wanted to share my journey through some mods I have done and have planned. Pretty much everything RC8R specific that I know came from here! I appreciate everyone's contributions and hopefully can add some myself. If anyone has any questions or would like more details let me know.
What I've done so far:
Watsen Design front blinkers
Note: He paints is to match. Had to wait 6 months for him to make (states clearly on his site) but so amazingly worth it. I did not have to use resistors.
Rizoma rear blinkers
Note: Very bright and the lines match the bike well. They come with resistors for easy installation. Each blinker comes with two, I used one with each blinker.
R&G tail tidy
Note: Love the bracket and license plate bulb. The R&G blinkers are cheap and not bright.
CRF EXO LS bar end mirror
TechSpec snakeskin tank grip
OEM Tank Protector
(Purchased from KTM Twins but I don't see it on their site right now.)
OEM Swingarm Protector
Note: The OEM battery terminal has the wire come in from the side. THis battery connects from the front. Minor tweaking required.
CRG RC2 levers
Sato frame and axle sliders
Bazzaz Z-Fi fuel controller with AFM mapper

Rottweiler SAS Stage 3 removal
Notes: For full SAS removal the tail section needs to be removed. I had to remove the radiator for something else; with the radiator out removing the SAS components above the radiator is easy. This kit comes with one dongle to plug into the OEM wiring after removal. You'll have to remove the air box (which means throttle body) to install the throttle body sync hoses.

Rottweiler Crankcase Breather Blanking Kit
Notes: The kit does not come with a part to blank out the hole on the air box after the crank case breather hose is rerouted. This will have to be custom. I will be routing the hose up into the tail section and back down to above the front sprocket. I am not installing a catch can but this should eliminate oil from coming out.
Samco silicone hoses (orange)
Rottweiler O2 sensor plugs
Note: Inside the bung the hole in the header has to be grinded bigger to match the diameter of the threads to accommodate the length of the plug.
KTM Twins thermostat upgrade
Steering stabilizer rebuild (the sticky)
HID headlight conversion
(Type 1 high beam 1 low beam)
