So here's the deal - you can get a bunch of moderately-priced mods and end up spending a bunch of money, or you can get a full Akrapovic exhaust, a PCV and a tune and get the same result. The Akra will net you around 5 hp more than what you have planned. They key, especially with these bikes, is trying to stay as stock as possible to maintain reliability.
Not a performance mod but necessary for reliability, you'll also need an updated shift pivot plate and a Sato shift spindle holder.
