What you posted was that you bought a CBR250R for your wife, who just completed a MSF course last weekend, because she is interested in riding her own bike. There was no mention at the time that she desired mods to be done on it, so I simply suggested she ride the bike stock for a while to A) get used to it in stock configuration and B) determine after riding it stock whether she actually wanted changes made to it.
Not sure why you've taken such offense to a common sense suggestion. If she asked you to make all of these changes before even riding the bike then fine, but that was not evident in your original post. Nor was there any indication that she had been riding as a passenger on your bike for any length of time, or had any experience whatsoever. Hence my suggestion that she have more input in any changes to be made on what is to be "her" bike. Your original post seemed to infer that she had little input in determining the mods you were planning. Thank you for clarifying that these were actually her requests.
