Default the one time i impulse buy... (chinese motor kit)

and i didn't do my homework... the more i read about the cheap chinese motor kits, the more wary i am of the one i bought. (2010 grubee gt5 slant head w/ upgraded carb)

is there a way i could get a laundry list of things to replace as preventative maintenance? or things to pay more attention to?

as it stands, i am going to gasket match the ports, put in a real brandname spark plug and wire, use an auto soft line for the fuel line instead of the plastic one provided, and replace the kill switch with something more solid. please chime in... i usually do tons of homework and find good deals, but for some reason this time i didn't. i want to keep the motor and system in good shape and at its most efficient.
