Performance is great the cables, chain and sprockets were all worn so replacing them is like night and day. Going from a normal steel 525 sprocket setup to the Driven racing 520 setup sheds a couple pounds and allows for quicker acceleration. The R1 parts make the throttle a 1/5 instead of 1/4 turn so getting to WOT is faster and easier on the wrist. The stock clutch perch was worn out badly but the new snapback perch is great, very crisp return. The Q3 tires for me are amazing. By far the best tires I've ever ridden on. Very stable very sticky and I was able to get 3000 canyon/street miles and a track day out of the rear. The front is still in good shape and I'm on my second rear. All in all the mods done have made the bike handle better and accelerate faster. The woodcraft coupons took a period of adjustment but now I don't know how I ever rode without them I can now get in the proper body position with little effort and no discomfort.

Dang 3000 miles? You think you would have got more without the track day? Have you tried Avon road riders by chance? I am only asking because I so far have only ran Avon road riders and Dunlop Roadsmart 2s

Without a track day I would have got more miles for sure. I'm hard on tires now I only got 2500 miles on the Bridgestone s20s. If I get over 3000 miles out of my rear tire I'm thrilled. I run sport tires though so they offer a higher level of grip at the cost of mileage. I've never run Avon's at all so I'm no help in that department. I do know that sport touring tires offer longer life but lack the grip of a true sport tire. As your speed and lean angle increase grip becomes more important than mileage.

Yeah true, trying to find that compromise where you get good mileage and grip is hard. I dont track at all, and most of my riding is commuting, since I cant really hit the canyons anymore.

The tires you have should be good for commuting. Before my riding became aggressive I ran Michelin pilot road2 and I got about 10000 miles out of those. Most modern tires can handle at least a spirited pace. Being smooth is really the key. Sorry to hear you can't hit the canyon's any more.
