What would you have done?

So it happened and my splines on my drive shaft coupler are completely gone and about 50% gone on my final drive, waiting for the final drive from shark here on the forums and still searching for a coupler, but while shes out of commission I've been thinking of what all i should have done to my bike so far heres what I've come up with:

Matte black paint job
Ear shave mod
V&H Cruzer pipes
Rebuild clutch(maybe)
Drill out clutch basket(maybe)
port polish
upgrade to a Honda CB1000 Regulator/Rectifier

What else would be a "nice to do" or a "need to have done" mod or upgrade that im missing in my list that you all have done?

V&H pipes
HID headlight
Ear shave
Clubman Bars
Matte black plasti-dip "paint" job.

Tools is $10 tops if you make your own manometer, but I had as good a success just eyeballing the flappers when I had the carbs on the bench, bench synching no less.

Watch this video to understand just what it means to synch the carbs. Very simple any you may find that they are fine anyway.

So basically you are just making sure the flappy things have the same gap.
