The Factory Pro 2 degree ignition advancer isn't worth the money. If you want to spend the money on one, get the 4 degree advancer. However, they are no longer produced and acquiring one second hand is becoming quite difficult.

The steering damper is a China cheapy. Not sure how long it works before it needs to be rebuilt or if it even works. Just two things to add to this. You get what you pay for and buyer beware.

The brake bracket is just a regular 'ol stock rear brake bracket. Nothing performance about it. A little on the expensive side. I have found several swingarms (even purchased one) with axle, brake bracket and swingarm pivot bolt for less money than the brake bracket you linked to.

Those Coerce sprocket gaurds aren't really anything performance. Sure, they look cool, but don't net you anything...unless it's smiles. That is an average price for a new one.

Thanks Crux. I figured the steering damper would be hit or miss, but I cant justify $400 on a scotts unit. i was looking at the brake bracket to use as a backup in case i messed up mine when i go to do the bracing mod, but i wasn't sure if it was a good price. you wouldn't know what the going rate on an ignitech programmable module is would you?
as for the coerce sprocket guard, i figured it would shed some weight.

Look for a used steering damper. I found a GPR V4 for cheap, because it wasn't working very well and slightly leaking. Turns out, if you send in your GPR V4 steering damper to GPR, they will rebuild it for free.

Why do you think you will mess up your brake bracket when installing the CBR900 brace?

Don't quote me on this, but I thought the Ignitech product was $400-$500. Maybe look into Megasquirt products.

As for the sprocket gaurd, if all you want to do is loose wieght, then take the stock cover off and remove the weight. Seriously, there is a wieght/damper behind the cover.
