Change your chain and sprockets if they haven't been already. 15 front, 42 rear

15/41 is the hot ticket.

Don't forget the speedometer correction if you change the gearing.
Since I'm sure the RC51 is plenty fast stock, my first mod would be suspension set-up...

exhaust & pcIII are the main 2 in my opinion. Which one you do 1st is up to you.

well there would be no point in really doing the Power commander first as I would just have to get the thing re-tuned once I install the exhaust right?

Either way, PCIII and full exhaust is a pricey first mod! Gotta love it though!
