The first thing you should do is send your shocks to rocket ron and get them set up right for your riding style and weight. That will make the bigest diference in how fast you are. I steering stablizer would be #2. Most slip on's help a little(not like on Jap bikes) Driver 311 did a dyno shoot out on slip on's. If you are going to leave the motor stock or add a slip on the JD jet kits work pretty well for most people. If you are plan on building the motor try the 06+ honda HRC needle. If you use that needle keep in mind it is quite a bit richer up top so you will use a smaller main jet. If you ride a lot of woods you might not to bore the carb, but for duning, mx, tt or something with a lot of top end riding bore the carb and maybe a cam swap(806,807,833) will be very helpful. I ride a lot of tight woods and really like the stock gearing, if you want more topend the bike will pull a 15t(+1)front fine. Just keep in mind what you want the bike to do and pick a setup where all the parts complament each other, and chassis-suspension setup is vital. There is no point in having a big hp motor you can't use to it's potential.

CT pipe works well for dunes, drops a little power down low, but picked it up in the mid/high end, over other pipes, I use the HMF and like it, follow my instructions for the carb mods listed in the other thread, carb boring will pick up about 1.5hp on top and not lose power on the bottom, I haven't dyno'd any cams yet so, a can't verify power, but others claim a good pick up with any of the three Jerry listed, Driver and I are working on do it yourself intakes, and will be dynoing his tonight.

Just be aware that the CT is REALLY loud, and isn't allowed in any area with noise regulations. Its way over any DB limit you will find. It does make good power tho.
