It really doesnt matter what you put on the bike as for performance mods, the bike is a single pumper thats almost right at the max of its HP, you can put an aftermarket exhaust and save a few pounds, you can purchase a set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tires and ride it until there is no more thread left on the tire, but like a few have said and many will I am sure, get to know you and the bike what you can and cant do with it. Go take an advanced course in motorcycle training, watch the films mentioned above or read the books, get a few track days or get a lot of track days. After a year or 2 and many miles later upgrade to a bigger bike; if you still enjoy riding, and start all over again.
I guess what I am trying to say is its your bike do what you want with it, the mods that you mentioned for the bike would probably be the best, but learning to ride it to the fullest can beat any mods or after market parts you put on the bike. Learn counter steering, roll on the throttle, find the apex in corners, always look where you want to go in a turn. I have a friend that can out run me on a raider 150 in the twisties, not on the straights as I have more power, but he has many years of practice.
