Replaced the stock exhaust with this little dude: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Replaced the headlight with a brighter LED: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Have you ridden at night with that LED yet?

I installed one and took it back out after the first ride. The low beam shot out in a "V" pattern, leaving the center of the road completely dark. That gap is only filled in with the brights on.

You can see the 2 distinct left/right beams here... and this was only about 5 feet away.

Off Topic. But how has that seat held up? I am still considering getting one of the Thailand seats because it has been a pain to find anyone to make a double seat in the USA. Also is it more comfortable than the stock seat?

Yeah I noticed that last night. Ugh. What a pain. Not sure what I'll replace it with but for now it's staying because I don't do much night riding.

The seat has held up nicely! It's definitely more comfortable but after an hour of freeway riding it starts to hurt.
