Replacing the rag joint with a sprocket hub adapter is the first upgrade I
Fuel lines are junk and a hazard as they degrade fast and could fail
dumping gas on a hot motor with disastrous results.
Replace studs, nuts and bolts especially the ones on the chain idler if
you are using it. Sick Bike Parts makes it easy as they have the parts
so you don't have to waste time running around finding them.
Replace the junk Chinese spark plug. I have seen the porcelain crack on them
which could ruin your motor.
Replace the intake gasket, make your own and match it to the port.
