I took my stock SC and added a steering damper, forged 999R wheels, 999R calipers, S4RS ohlins forks, a new Ohlins rear shock, sprung for my weight, set sag, rebound, compression. I tracked the bike and it handled pretty well. I then decided to sell it and in one afternoon converted it all back to stock and then rode it again and I was like W T F? it still looked cool, but the difference was huge, it was like riding a whale that couldn't stop. I didnt get it back to the track in stock form, so in the 2-3x i rode it before selling it (on the streets) the #1 thing that I really noticed to be honest was how shitty the stock brakes were in comparison.
If you are fine with getting rid of the spoked stock wheels, and stock forks, then the used 999S (cast) or 999R (forged) wheels are a cheap way to get light wheels that are almost plug and play (rear requires a simple spacer kit). it does mean moving to either M1000S forks or S4RS forks (used) and radial brakes (999R), but once again all this stuff u can find used at motorcycle wreckers.
