What do you wish you DIDN'T DO to your Rhino?

Going with the theme of "What have you done to your Rhino today, I thought I'd see what people were wishing they had not done, installed or wasted their money on.

Wish I would have bought a base 700, I didn't think the mod bug would bite so hard.

I paid alot for the midnight armor when it came out and have nothing to show for it.

Possibly my seat bases as they don't work as designed with the Cerullo F3 seats I have and I basically defeated the purpose of them as to make them work they did not lower me.... I do still benefit from the center being cut out for the suspension seat but to be honest I don't think I would bottom out anyways with all the damn padding. But I may try to put the staock bases back on and if they work I will hock these bases to another member that has PRP's or another brand seat... no biggie. Oh and the leg minders I paid $135 for that became pointless 2 weeks later when Yamaha sent out the freebie door notice.

I left the minders in place with the doors over them. I then bolted the doors shut.... now they are step overs.

I bought a set of silver plastics when they were at a premium. My wife likes the original red plastics so much that I'm thinking the silvers will never go on the Rhino...unless I camo wrap them

I purchased the Yamaha 1/2 windshield. Paid $200, could of made one for $50. Only use it in Colorado as it is worthless in Arizona.
