1) Get a flywheel weight. I think I had a 12 oz. This helps to prevent stalling as well as getting the power to the ground.
2) Get a handle bar mounted "Hot Start" system. There are a few brands around. I used the Ty Davis system but check around there may be others that work as well or better. Try Doug Dubach.
3) Jetting. Proper jetting will help your bike start easier and run better. Go to the jetting forum and check the ThumperTalk store for the JD jetting kit.
4) If the air box is stock, try cutting a 4X4 inch hole in the top. This will help let the bike breath better. But, check it first. The previous owner may have already done that.
5) Set your race sag. Go to the suspension forum here on TT and you will find a wealth of information.
6) you want a quiet pipe but something that isn't too restrictive. You didn't mention what your bike has but if it is stock check around for a good quiet after market system. Also, if you get a good after market header you can get the high bend that doesn't obstruct access to the oil filter!
7) For the really tight woods single track stuff try using lower gearing. Start by putting a 13 primary on and then go from there.
8) move the rear wheel as far forward as possible without coming into contact with the mud flap. To get your chain adjusted properly you may need to remove a link. But, check it out first.
9) you can also raise your forks up a few millimeters in the clamps. This will help to quicken your steering. But, don't over do it and make sure both sides are the same.
That should get you started. Hopefully, others will chime in here to offer up some pointers as well.
