New 05 450- need some help please.

I've been reading through lots of threads here, and have used the search feature too, but I'm having trouble with a couple of issues.
First, I live in Idaho. The dealer pulled the baffle, (and assured me the spark arrestor was still in the pipe) put in the yz throttle stop, cut the gray wire, and removed the snorkel on the air box (I think that's what he told me). I know he said they did a free mod on the airbox, just not exactly sure. I also had them throw on a 756 in the front. (Does this thing come with a 756 on the rear??) The stock front that came off was a 739, yet there's a 756 in back too! (Didn't pay extra for that one)
So yesterday I put on rad guards, and some high bend pro tapers along with a uni filter. Which gets me to where I am now...
I don't know if my bike comes with the AIS, or is that just California bikes?
I'm heading to the TT store and I want to get my order right. I'm assuming with all I've read that I'll need:
1. JD jet kit?
2. Zip ty fuel screw?
3. AIS removal kit?
Thanks a lot for the help guys, this place is such a great resource.

Well, just took the big bore out for initial motor break in. Never really got on it, but jeeeeebbbuuusss I could feel unlimited power . Just cruising in 3rd gear, braap and hold on, I absolutely love it.
I have to say though, I had the Devol rad guards on my 03 250 and they worked quite well, so when I picked this bike up, I grabbed some more Devols as I was impatient and figured they'd be fine. The thing is, they push the shroud mount out about 1" on each side as compared to where the shrouds mounted on the plastic louver that it came with. So much so in fact that I had to modify the plastic bracing on the back of the shroud (can't really see it) so that the shroud would hug the Devol guard tighter in order for all the screws to line up.
Can someone tell me where the shroud sits in relation to stock after installing the Uniguard rad guards? Do they let the shroud stay tight on the radiator, or do they kick the shrouds out some too?
I'm considering the Unabikers and hopefully dealer will take back Devols if there is substantial difference.

Cairn, do you mean the shrouds sit an inch wider on each side with the Unabikers? That's how they sit with the Devols. The three bolts up top on the shroud are just fine, but the bottom mount is kicked out about an inch when mounting to the Devol guard.
I'm probably the only one who'd notice that they sit a bit further out anyway.
I had a skidplate on the 250, looks like I'd better get another one pronto
Hey Cali, what do you mean choose red or blue? Sorry, over my head
