What "low priced" modifications are necessary for superior trail use-never on pavement?

Something other than the stock front tire. You will have to do some research, Tracy and I both use the Maxis, but it seems the particular model has been discontinued. The stock front tire 'washes out' easily.. If you are on the taller side, and/or annoyed by vibration, an alloy handlebar (taller) may make an off-road adventure more fun (comfortable). A seatpad for anyone with an older 'butt'. Many have found comfort with the Sterns seat pad. I am happy, but spent alot more when buying the Airhawk. Have fun, Gerrry

If speed is no concern you could go one smaller on the front sprocket or a few larger on the rear.

I choose the IMS footpegs (U.S.A. made)......there was zero modifications in order to install the IMS pegs. Now,if one is on a fixed budget,don't get bummed out,get the china one's....you "might" have to do some modding......maybe not!....install and enjoy a better ride!.
