Can anybody give me any advice regarding polishing the ports

And what does the JD kit do?  Is it a fuel controller?

So here is what I have done so far.
(pictures from the web because my bike is at home and I am not)

Installed a matt black Fatbar, similar to this picture.

Still looking for Rox Raisers like picture 2.  It is a bit awkard standing and riding at the moment.

Headlight conversion.

I ordered two of Extreme lights 3600Lumen spots.  Like in photos 1 and 2

My idea is to build a bracket to hold them on the front and then put a bit of a screen on like in photo 3.

I am also thinking of doing a copy of AlanB's headlight bracket and move the dials higher up.

Roxraisers done. Love the new handlebar height.
Will make the technical stuff a bit more manageable.

 Also makes the key positition less akward.

Bike lyk baie mooi Boer.
Lyk amper soos A/T se bike wat saam met ons Bray toe gery het maar sy ketting en sprockets het aan die regterkant gesit ?

Let me just say the Leo Vince is the best mod I made to my Husky. Gutting the stocker is ok but does not match a true aftermarket pipe. However it is not worth buying one new for thousands (7k or more ?), you will never get it back. If you have money to burn no problem though.

The Arrow is pretty good too.

My one 610 has a Arrow on sounds and works well with the PU Kit ---

Arrow was the official pipe used for Huskies --- just not worth the price -- :o

I have the JD Tuner and it is great. Your other mods and farkles are all good but I would say one of the best things one can spend money on on a DS bike before a zorst and bling is a steering damper. I have the Scotts setup and really fits and works well. Once it has saved your ass once or twice you will understand.

I have a steering damper on the gsa, coincidentally I bought it from Big Dom.

Transformed the bike. 

My problem is that I am a mediocre rider at best, so I need all the help I can get.

Boer - forgot about that  ;D  I have dampers on virtually all my bikes, admittedly some like KTM's demand it more than others but what I can say is when it comes to sand, fist size rocks, mud ... it is a life saver. Oh and great in cross winds - dial it up and track straight  :3some:
