Hmmm....lemme think....O-ring chain and the proper sprockets for what you plan to do (tight single track?), a back up air filter (or two), the correct tires, hand guards/bark busters, skid plate, radiator guards, spark arrestor/muffler, TT decomp plug, Ziptye fuel screw.... that should probably eat up 80% of what you have to spend, the rest I'd put into a few back up parts like clutch cables (they seem to break at the worst times), spare brake/clutch levers, spark plugs, oil/checmicals, tools, etc....

Notice there's nothing here that's for "bling"...I'm a big believer in spending money on practicality and things that work rather than things that look flashy.
