The guards are a very good idea.
Otherwise I'd suggest riding it as-is the first few times. Then you'll want to trim the throttle stop, take the lid off of the airbox, and pull the end plug from the exhaust. Replace it with one of the replacement ends available, to calm the noise, if you can.
I'm not sure if the "grey wire" will make a difference on the 426 or not. Get some riding time on it first, then decide if you want to cut it. That's also the time to consider going to YZ timing.
If you search on any of those mods you'll find lots of info. Just ask the group if there are more questions. Great and knowledgeable people here.

Lastly, break in the machine gently and give several oil changes the first hundred or so miles.
Handguards are probably the most important guard. Radiator guards are a good idea, get either Devol or Thumper, not works connection. Then spend money on carb jets and needles in preparation for YZ timing and removing all the restrictors.
For me, jetting was a concern. Stock the bike simply did not run all that strong...IMHO. Jetting needed many adjustments to bring the fire alive.
So try not to be disappointed with the stock setup, there's many HP to be uncovered.
