I'll add YZ timing to the list.
As far as other mods that you need to highly consider (may not be free)? NE is full of rocks! Skid plate and radiator guards would be a good idea. I personally use Moose Skidplate and Devol guards, but anything except works connection will do you fine.
If you ride a lot of water holes, do the carb vent breather mod and head vent T mod. Seal savers and the Ty Davis Magnetic drain plug are worth their weight in gold.
Chances are if you came from a KLX, the throttle stop, airbox lid and exhaust plug is probably going to be enough satisfy you for ahile. After you get comfortable, switch to better jetting, YZ timing and YZ style (OEM is fine) pipe.
One VERY important thing that you should note! All, yes all your bearings are dry from the factory! Tear the entire bike down BEFORE YOU RIDE IT! Sorry to bear the bad news, but after you do the job you'll be VERY GLAD you did!
Have fun with your new bike. You're going to love it compared to the KLX

He will help you turn up all sorts of stuff you were afraid to ask about... Your bike will love you forever if you listen to his advice...
Just don't get him started on oil or jetting - not yet anyway - because that is the dark, argumentative side of his personality...
Good luck, and happy riding...
