Taken apart anyway...

I installed the JD Jet kit, and while I have the carb out, I'd like to know if there are any other mods I should do. I can't say that it ran bad before the teardown, but to me it felt more like a 250 than a 426. It just didn't have it when I needed it. Any other suggestions for things I should do while the bikes apart? I can't afford a pipe right now, and am doing all the regreasing of the linkage and headset. Thanks!

Get all your service items (valve adjustment, clean carb, oil,airfilter) done before final carb tuning.

Well, I kinked my back rim severely a couple of weeks ago, so I headed to the Thumpertalk store. Of course, I started thinking about why it happened, and by the time I left, I had purchased new springs front and rear, a jd jet kit, fastway lowboy pegs, a new rim for the back, and new spokes. (by the way, i bought a spoke wrench, and it turns out one came with the spokes, so now I have two ) Anyway, a quick rim replacement turned into a complete teardown, with nothing but a frame and engine left on my milk crate in the garage. ...
Dude... back away from the tool box! You're outta control!

Is there any other carb mods that may be worth doing? How about suspension, and chassis? I'm pretty new to the four strokes, so any advice would be great! Thanks
