What type of riding/racing do you plan to do?
Beyond the 13T sprocket for more juice, I recommend:
Airbox: Remove lid and snorkel, or Mod lid, Uni Filter, Honda 400EX air boot
Carb: FCR conversion (from a YFZ450-highly recommended) or at least rejet stock BSR
Motor: (the $kie$ the limit) but afforable mods are cams, DRZe kit.
Exhaust: any high flow FULL exhaust. No point in messing with slip on mufflers with the availability of good used full set-ups for half the price of a new slip on.
Suspension: Track or trail?
Brakes: YFZ front calipers, Honda Master cylinder, KTM stainless lines.

I recommend checking all the bearing too, these had little to no grease in them from the factory and it's real likely you need to start with replacing axle bearings and front wheel bearings.

Oh yeah, and check out suzukicentral - there's a ton of tuning tips and used parts for sale, and bunch of people who know these bikes top to bottom
