How often do you...

How often are you supposed to change your clutch on your bike?
jrock would know about this maybe, but does anyone else?
My bike feels a bit sluggish and i am wondering what i can do for it to increase the bikes potential with out forging pistons and spending 1000s of bucks.

I thought maybe:

Clutch
oil (full synthetic???)
new chain and sprocket (i don't stunt.....yet)

any other ideas on the brand of product i should buy, and links would be awesome if they are handy.

i have a:
2002 zx-9r

Let's start with the basics; How many miles are on your bike?
When was your last tune up?
What's been done to it so far?

At 16,000 miles it is supposed to get a major tune up; adjust valves, replace plugs and air filter, and synch the carbs.

I'd recommend doing that first. From there, 1 tooth down on the CS sprocket as stlal suggested, and possibly a slip on and carb kit will get you more power and acceleration.
