Check out gefr, he has a much more reasonably priced option for the tea-bag and small internal paper filter. Quality seems pretty good although I've not fitted mine yet.

'07 990 Issues

Some of the early EFI bikes have a throttle like a on/off switch so yes, get a modified throttle grip cam straight away. Otherwise, just enjoy the bike for what it will give you.
