I can assure you that you do not need a slipper clutch at the track.
I wouldn't spend anything on your brakes before putting steel lines on as they will make the single biggest improvement to them.

Akra - good choice.
BMC - I'd still recommend OEM but BMC are okay.
PC3 - pretty much essential.
Slipper clutch - why?
Wave rotors - why? Are yours worn out? I run an aluminium rear disc I cut out of 5mm plate. I don't use it so if I have to run it I want it to be as light as possible. Roughly one-quarter of the weight of the OEM steel disc.

Iridium plugs aren't a performance upgrade, they're a maintenance upgrade because they last longer.

You probably won't _need_ to but it's likely you would prefer to get a PC3 to smooth out the power.
You can't "flash" many bikes.

Re: Performance Upgrades

I would recomend upgrading the suspension first, redo the forks and rear shock also add a damper, then look at the power upgrades.

Re: Performance Upgrades

if its a street bike mostly just stick to the simple mods, full system, pc3, filter, gearing, and maybe aftermarket velocity stacks like factory pro...

Reducing weight is the first thing I do when I get a bike. Everything that isn't required comes off and everything that is required gets lightened or replaced with something that is lighter.

Yep I agree. Learn to ride the bike to it's full potential before worrying about adding more power than you can effectively use. Look at the 'Busa. Sure it can go fast in a straight line, but what's the point. Sportbikes are meant to be driven hard and fast in any circumstance.
