Best bang for the buck for me is the forks mod first.

Honestly though, I'd save my money and do track days rather than spend that money on a pipe or suspension first

And yes, I'd say that even if I wasn't affiliated with LSTD.

If you've not done so, spend $25 and have your suspension set up for your body weight and riding style. Motorcycles Unlimited does this quite well and it'll take less than 30 minutes.

From there you can decide if you need a new shock. Doubtful unless you are a very fast back roads rider or a track guy.

^^^^ Agree with both post you really should just grab a average slip on to get some pose points(nothing wrong with that at all) but seriously Have you considered everything you need like for lonestar you need.

The Gear

* Full face DOT/Snell approved helmet not older than 5 years (a flip-up helmet is not a full-face helmet).
* Leather/motorcycle boots that extend above the ankle.
* Full-finger motorcycle gloves, preferably extending past the wrist.
* Advanced Group must have one piece or two piece leathers (it is recommended that 2 piece leathers zip together in some form).
* Intermediate/B and Riders School/C Groups may use full leathers, OR, one/two piece Cordura or synthetic/heavy duty nylon riding suits (lightweight mesh suites are not appropriate).
* Back protector highly recommended.
Also you can go through tires relatively fast.
So make sure you have all the bare minimum covered before buying you extras, also you have to pay for the trackday too it adds up fast.
Also have you taken msf.

IMO
agree 100%

Forks are good for you because you are able to ride to the limit of a stock set-up...most people can't.

To further follow up on what Tom is saying...spend the money on track plastics and do track days. That way you can explore your's and the bikes ability without worrying too much about damaging the ridiculously expensive stock plastic. After a few good track days, you'll be better able to decide what upgrades suit your riding style best.
