Cheap/free mods?

Just wondering if anyone knows any cheap/free mods I can do to my bike, so far I've tinted my windscreen, just looking for anything like performance wise or cosmetic.

There aren't a lot of free mods to do to the bike expect to cut and remove a few things, but there's a lot you can do for under $50 bucks.

Removing the snorkel lets more air into the box by providing less restriction. It should be done in conjunction with shimming the needles or rejetting. Shimming the needles provides a little low end boost and improves low end throttle response, warm up and idle.

Pennies, if you do it yourself.
