Under $50 game changers

Name a part or parts that you installed on your bike that make a big difference in looks or functionality that are under $50.

Hoping there might be some small parts that make a big difference that I, or others, may have never thought to put on the bike....

I've been interested in checking out the crampbuster before....then one of my buddies started ragging on me...lol

You like it though? does it stay on 24/7 or just slip on for longer rides?

Reflective tape, let's you personalize and makes the bike very visible. I've even added about 10" of it to my helmet. Most people can't tell it till after dark.

8.99 on ebay... more or less. A Chinese cops of real zx10 footpegs. They dont have the rubber top on the footpeg. Because of this, it's like dropping the footpegs 1/2 inch. A cheap way of opening up the rider compartment.

No extra vibration as the stock bike has the entire rearset rubber mounted.

Crampbuster for $12. I have it on all my bikes since 2011. On all the time. Makes twisting the throttle so much easier. Highway riding is also more relaxed than without. Basically, you don't have to grip the throttle completely and squeeze. The Crampbuster grips and squeezes the throttle for you as you twist it.
