Thumbs up New 07 600rr owner good first mods?

hey guys, just picked up my dream bike yesterday, managed to get the 2007 cbr600 with Leyla fairings (however thereís is a crack in the bottom portion on one side that I am going to try to fix myself as itís out of the way and not too noticeable) it has 18k miles on it, seems to run super well, Starts up quick and rides like new. The chain looks to be in good shape, but the brake fluid has never been changed or anything :/ so thatís on the agenda tonight, however the guy said he was always up to date with oil changes. It has new tires and brakes Iím not sure the brand off hand yet. What are some mods you guys recommend for street riding? I care a lot about the aesthetics of this bike as itís my dream bike since highschool. THis is why Iím never gonna lean it too hard or push it on a track. Hereís some mods already done to it
shorty levers
yoshi rs5 exhaust (silence be removed)
fender delete.
hid lights (though Iím not crazy about one being on without the brights on)
frame sliders.
Smoked windscreen

im looking at small stuff first, anything you guys recommend? Is there any things I can do for The bike to make it run better and last me longer? What are some common things that need replaced on this bike? Any advice for a new cbr owner is appreciated.

THis is why I’m never gonna lean it too hard or push it on a track. Why not? That's what it was made for. Be responsible about it, but don't dog it around.

Sounds like it has some decent mods already. The first thing is to get a set of good tires. Nothing beats a new set of rubber...

Then next, set up the suspension for your weight and riding. Replace the springs if you have to, and get some new fork oil in it. A properly set up bike is a dream to ride and will be super stable when cornering.

At 18k, valves should be checked and adjusted as required.

I don't see the point of upgrades when your not going to lean it over or push the bike hard, it won't even be taxing the stock stuff so no need for upgrades?
