Newbie from PA

Hey what's up everyone. My name is Jon. I own a 2005 yamaha yzf-R1 lava red w/ a lot of carbon fiber. It's too dusty at work to ride that in so I have been looking for something cheap for me and a good learner bike for my neighbor and little sister to start out on. I just payed $1,200 for a '01 w/ 17.9k miles. It's red and has the saddlebags. cover and has a k&n air filter on it. New battery to be installed. I'm picking it up in a week. What are some good mods to do to help this little half liter run better and more fun. Carb jett, Exhaust, Handlebars? Thanks

I installed a VanceHines exhaust system,hi flo air filter,and jet kit... it ran well, quite a bit better than stock... on a different note: beware of the touchy front brake, especially if your bike is equipped with a braided steel line ... don't grab too much brake !
