Hi,  I got a new 2018 CB500X in May.  I have been riding street and dirt for many years.  I absolutely love this bike.

mods on my CB500X (in order of positive impact)

0.   Honda centrestand (purchased with the bike)
1.   Rally Raid Level 1 suspension
2.   16-tooth sprocket
3.   footpeg lowering blocks (I reworked them for strength)
4.   I shortened the shift lever for more toe room, and added a large brake pad
5.   ebay exhaust (for boot clearance, weight reduction, and to sound fast)
6.   mirror extenders, brake pulser (items from a previous bike)
7.   PIAA fog lights (to make me more visible and to look the part)
8.   GIVI 1121FZ rack
9.   Honda Accessory Socket, 12V fuseblock and ground bar; added USB ports
10.  hand guards, fork gaiters, front fender flap, Cycra flap for rear, radiator guard
11.  SW Motech skid plate and crash bars (for damage prevention and to look the part)
12.  Savage steering stabilizer (Scott's replica, but seems OK so far, not stress-tested yet  :021:
13.  removed the passenger pegs (no friends), painted the gaudy silver parts to dark grey colour
