This machine does not even have a battery so additional electronics are going to be minimum at best. There are still some modifications to be made though:

Since there is nothing to block the wind at all on this machine, first off will be to get some kind of hand protection installed.

I found these at Royal Distributing. They will match with my final colour scheme and have extenders and metal wraparound extensions.

A fairly simple installation:

My style of riding has me standing most of the time. I have much better control of the machine and it is a lot easier on my back. So, the next operation will be to get those handlebars up to a point where I'm not bending over to reach them.

The Fly Aero handlebars on this machine are a little unusual. At the grips they are the standard 7/8" diameter. However, they then taper to a wider 1 1/8" where they are attached to the machine. Fly does make risers for these but they also reduce down to fit the standard 7/8" bar:

So I had this simple adapter machined at The Machining Center in Timmins. It is 1 1/8" in the center and 7/8" on the edges:

... and it worked out just fine with my bars up 3" higher than stock:
