How can tires be a mod? That's like saying putting gas in the bike is a 'mod'... Or changing to synthetic oil is a 'mod'...

Id say from a performance perspective (excluding the slip on at #5)

1. Stainless brake lines -Galfer
2. steering damper -Ohlins
3. tires -Michelin Pilot Powers-
4. 520 conversion w/gearing change -DID ERV3/AFAM
5. exhaust -Jardine s/o, not really performance but I had to have it

I think tires are a mod. If you took a bone stock bike of the showroom floor with 208's on there, put some laps on it, then threw pilot powers or diablo corsas on it and did some more laps you would definietly pick up some time.

If tires aren't a mod, then a 520 sprocket conversion isn't a mod...all you're doing is replacing stock parts :myfault

Considering all that's touching the road are two small rubber patches, I'd say tires are one of the most important modifications you can make.

You call it a 'mod' if you want... At 3 - 4 sets in ~ 1K miles, I call them consumables...

if the tire you switch to and "consume" is a higher performance tire.............its a modification, you seem to be the ONLY one that feels this way, if you wear out a pair of the Dunlop 218s and replace them with 218s then yes you are correct.
