I would go to YZ timing and the jetting (if your below 3000') I have listed. While doing this, you probably want to find a used YZ pipe. I wouldn't spend the money on an aftermarket pipe, unitl they build a quieter pipe. YZ pipes can be found for around $100 or you might be able to trade a YZ guy looking to quiet his bike down. I'll assume since your bike is a 99, that someone has already upgraded the air filter??
For other mods, here are my thoughts:
Tires- 739's suck, Dunlop 755 or 756
Damper- great for reducing deflection, awesome in the woods and great on the track. Also reduces rider fatuige.
YZ Style seat and tank- big improvement in the corners, allows you to better weight the front end by moving further forward
Thumper or Flat Land rad guards- heaviest duty made, a lot cheaper then radiator repair
YZ Style- If you don't ride at night or need to keep track of miles. You can save a lot of weight by going to a YZ front number plate (you'll have to buy the YZ axle spacer and seal, also make a little bracket to mount the plate) Lighter rear fender.
Triple clamp mount handguards- keeps me safe when I bonk a tree , saves levers, strengthens/protects my Renthals and keeps roost and mud off.
MX-Tech suspenders- Bikes is plusher, yet handles big jumps better. The forks have a much more linear travel and when I come up short on a double the bike is much more forgiving. AWESOME customer service.
