Why don't you ride it for about 15/30 min. so you can realy apreciate the power gains you'll get from these mods, or just do it like you said. I rode mine for a while completly stock, waiting on the high power parts, then unkorked it and put on a E-series pipe, White Power filter, 68s pilot, 175 main, needle in 4th position.
