Suspension set up; sets the bike up for your weight and riding style, $25.00

-1 tooth on the front sprocket; faster acceleration, quicker revving which gives better access to your powerband. $25.00

Slip on / PC5 / BMC air filter; a bit more power everywhere, smooths the on / off throttle transition. $700.00 - $900.00 for all 3 depending on brand

Streel braided front lines and upgraded fluid and brake pads; Better stopping power to handle the additional power / acceleration, more lever "feel", no fade. $200.00 - $250.00 depending on line and pad choice.

That's actually 8, but it's what I'd recommend.

We can help advise what parts work well together, as well as install / tune them.

+2, for mods to the bike, although I would say change to "Slip-on...etc" to be done after brake upgrades, only because I'm not the biggest fan of aftermarket pipes, etc. in relation to the other upgrades mentioned.

Start with yourself first though and take a track day with a group that teaches basics, and progresses up from there. All the bike mods don't mean if you don't improve on the control box located in your helmet first.
