2005 Raptor 660r Easy Beginner Mods

I have just purchased a bike and this is my first bike and I’m very addicted. I just wanna know a few things I can do and should do to the bike. The owner says it’s stock only thing he has changed was the grips. I’m new to all of this but I wanna do the work myself. Is there anything I should do as a beginner? Btw. Love my bike! Thank you guys!

Yea go through the bike and make sure is up to par. Then if you have cash i would start modding suspension and ride quality first. Some of the thing i would do first is getting your shocks rebuilt and revalved for your weight/ ride style, or get new ones. You can also look into anti fatigue stuff that will let you ride longer. You can also look into wider a arms rear axles etc. The list can go on and on it all depends how deep you want to dig into your pockets

First, do all your regular maintenance. Then I'd dip into new levers and after that, I would look into an aftermarket exhaust and a K&N air filter. If you like numbers and stuff like me you can scoop up a Trail Tech computer system to know your speed, coolant temp, mileage, ect. I love my trail tech. Also if you like the big foot bars you can get yourself some nerf bars. The list goes on and on lol

I agree with previous poster, as far as easy DIY mods an exhaust would be first on the list for me. Slip on or full exhaust but from what I understand the stock headers are very well built on these bikes. That also may come with jetting the carb as well but they sell kits for that. Remember to take pics when disassembling. LOL
Good luck and Rip It Up!!
