I was wondering what 5 mods I should make first.
I am already getting a Trinity pipe and I was wondering what else.

Thanks

open up the airbox
rejet
new filter (unifilter or K&n)

Without these, that pipe isn't going to do much.

Ok I sort of want to work on the performance of the machine though first. My friends are getting Predators and one already has a Raptor.
I ride woods very aggresively but would like to try Cross Country racing.
I also would like to go to open practice at the local MX track and be able to fool around some.

Ok I got this so far

1.Trinity pipe
2.K&N Filter with Outerwear with lid removed from air box
3. Pro Armour Swing arm skid plate (any complaints about these?)

Whats next for some more power? I dont want to up the displacement though. Not right away anyways. Or maybe an axle is the axle bending problem gone? If not....Lone Star axle?

I believe that the Z needs shocks. I think you could go faster in the woods and MX with just better shocks. I could tell that I was way faster with the WORKS up front and spring change in the back. Before, I could not use the power that I had. Now I am waiting for a pipe shoot-out. That will be the next mod. I have always liked FMF. I want a little more mid and not so loud I can't ride the kids around the yard without the neighbors throwing rocks at me.

You would be extremely surprised how much just a pipe makes on a stock Z trust me i found out today WOW it gets goin quick now should gain just a bit more when i finally decide to buy a K&N filter

I am light so I dont think I need shocks I am 15 and only weigh around 125 so I dont think I will need shocks unless I am doing crazy air.

What are peoples thoughts on steering stabalizers? Do I need one or not?

Shocks are kind of pricey though cause I would want Elkas, Ohlins or PePs and they cost alot

I say the thing that can improve your riding the most is shocks. The stock ones are way to soft. After that, a pipe and filter will help alot.
