Well, you just bought the starter kit that already has some nice mods. You can ratchet it up as high as you want. Storz Performance, Twinmotorcycles are great places to look at for ideas not to mention this forum. Nice bike and welcome to the club. Just make sure your oil cap is screwed down properly. Enjoy!Hey everyone I bought a 2009 XR1200 2 weeks ago from Orange County Harley in CA and I've been going over a lot of information on this website trying to understand all the information out there on these things. Harley is very new to me coming from Japanese bikes so I'm trying to figure out what it's capable of and what it's not.
The bike as it sits right now has a Termignoni slip on, Corbin seat (very nice), and adjustable suspension on the front and rear. It's set up pretty good right now but I definitely want to try and get some reliable power and suspension mods. Ultimate goal is some carbon fiber wheels and a track tune 😱.
I have been riding pretty spiritedly, trying to lean over as much as I can in the turns to get a feel for it and I've done a lot of WOT on some nice sweeping freeway curves on my daily commute. I suspect I need to replace the front and rear motor mounts and possibly the swingarm bearings. I just downloaded the manual for the bike so digging through that tonight.
I attached some pictures from riding near the beaches in SoCal after the rain finally subsided after weeks and it was clear, roads were nice and clean.

Anyways a lot to learn looking forward to many fun days!
