What is your definition of performance? I don't know your riding experience, so I'll assume you're a casual street rider with a few years and maybe 5k mi/year (but do correct me/us if I'm wrong)

Spending thousands for a few HP is kinda pointless IMO. The bike is quite capable as-is. If you haven't done a trackday: that is the best bang for your buck. You will learn a TON and that performance mod (you) is portable to any bike. Install some quality rubber, make sure the bike is mechanically sound/tuned up, and have fun.

My idea of performance for any bike is handling. If you happen to be quick at the track: geometry and suspension are what you need to address with this bike. A linear rear link, better rear shock, proper trail #'s (triple tree offset), and sprung for your weight becomes necessary. But that's really the limit of what you *need* to do (again: my opinion).

Your model year ECU can be tuned without needing a piggyback system (e.g. Powercommander): TuneBoy and TuneECU are 2 options. Do a search for those if interested. While generally aimed at re-tuning if you have full exhaust, airbox mods, etc...it can be beneficial if you want to dial in other aspects such as rev limiter.

I'm with Keeena on this one. What do you plan to do with the bike? I would definitely recommend different modifications depending on what you plan to do with it. But, my first step would be reliability and crash worthiness upgrades regardless.

I believe your year had some regulator/rectifier issues:

I'd get that sorted (if it hasn't been already) before investing money into suspension or horsepower upgrades. That's not to say that servicing the forks and other things isn't important, of course.

I'll second the recommendation for more seat time over some modification to get you a small HP gain. My bike is much closer to stock than not, and I'm still the slowest thing on it.

Oh, and where are you at in Delaware? I'm just a bit west of Philadelphia.
