#1 Shorter final drive gearing. A 14-T front sprocket at least.
#2 Open the airbox completely. Just cut the top right off it, leaving only enough to hold the filter down.
#3 Get the suspension set up properly for your weight, re-springing if necessary.
So far, I have spent only $50 - $250 of your money, and the bike is way better.
#4 Exhaust, obviously. Big gain just from slipons without fueling adjustments. The sound will also be much improved, not that you will notice from the pilot's seat if you did #2.
That's it. The bike is now all kinds of awesome. Congratulations on the purchase - I wish like hell I had bought one of those before they stopped making them.
Edit: Hey, I just noticed you are in Auckland. I am currently in Palmerston North, here until the end of March. I keep seeing red supersports all over the place. Apparently kiwis have good taste in bikes!
