If you want to add things that are purely cosmetic, then the things you're adding are purely subjective.

In my opinion, less is more. Leave it alone.

Here she is. I was thinking along the lines of possibly rear sets and possibly 520 conversion.

520 conversion is a waste unless you're a pro road racer..

Don't even bother. Best upgrade is riding skills via trackdays.

Do you need rearsets? Are you scraping your toes on the pavement, or is it hard to lock your outside knee into the tank during a turn? If so, replace em. If not, why bother?

Ding! $100 on a trackday is the cheapest performance enhancement you can buy for a motorcycle.
