What are you planning to use it for. Offroad?

Skidplate first. Then handguards & better handlebars. Then tires. DynoJet kit in the carb is fine, cut the airbox and drill thr second hole in the slide.
14 tooth sprkt. You're up to about $400 now.

On road? I'll let someone else speak to that.

I've got pro cycles jet kit installed, it's a nice improvement over stock jetting. If you just want a little more pep, a jet kit is the best thing you can do. If you want to lift the front wheel, you may need more "oomph". Just depends. If I can get my carb dialed in right I'll be perfectly happy with it. I've still got some fine tuning I'm trying to figure out but even as it sits now, it's a lot better than stock.

If you don't have luggage, crash protection, a seat, etc... yet, I'd get a jet kit and spend the rest on other upgrades. You could probably deal with a jetted factory carb until you had another $500 to get the pumper. Then just sell the factory carb/jet kit for more upgrades.

I wanted the most bang for the buck, so I opted to wait to get the pumper carb. After the jet kit install, I'm not even sure I'll get the pumper.

Save the Jet kit idea

Well, if 36 mpg. is okay, down from 50 mpg,...then jet kit knock yourself out. I was sorry I did it. At todays gas prices, and long ride in Baja Outback, I was the fuel worry problem child riding with KLRs and BMWs in remote areas. I love that big single torque just as stock gave me, But I'm an old fart. On my new DR.....50 mpg, and only drilled out the idle jet plug and enrichened that circuit.
14 tooth sprocket, Bash Plate, Hand Guards, Bar Risers, REAR RACK, ....and most important a Coleman ATV Seat Cover with 1 inch of foam underneath that. (not in the pic. that follows though)

never tried the tm40, but i really like the fcr39 which i had installed on my bike, so that's what i'd do. but, i am cheap; i found an fcr39 already set-up for the dr650 on ebay for ~$130 delivered, which included merge racing spring.. i bought a new fmf hi-flow power bomb hedder for $140 shipped, a new hi-flow midpipe from kientech for $193 shipped, and a new tsukigi gsxr1000 can from a gsxr website blog for $100 shipped. a little over $500, but the performance is way sweet!

if i coulda found a used kientech & fmf, i'd have done that for sure. i gave up looking for a stock gsxr1000 can when i found the tsukigi for about the same price... i hate buying stuff new! i paid $1300 for my '00 dr w/8k on it, and it awreddy had acerbis tank, trail tech vapor dash, sm wheels/tires... it has a coupla dings, but that's ok...

this bike will be +95% street, as it's 'tarded.

Just to say thanks, TravelGuy was spot on it was the kill switch. Now I just don't know what pisses me of more, that someone pushed i my killswitch while being parked down town, or that they actually got me with that stupid prank. Oh well, I guess I learnt my lesson ...

I'd start in ME, and I could probably make it all the way to CA on $500. Go for a ride.

I got 20km/L from stock.
18-19km/L from DynoJetted with 2nd slide hole, shortened diaphragm spring, header weld ground, aftermarket pipe etc...
Now 18-20km/L with the FCR39...

Yah,Ive some how gone 25000 miles on my DR with a totally stock carb,with a 14 tooth countershaft I can get the front tire off the ground ok.
Airfilter stays clean a long time with uncut airbox,always 50 mpg at least. I just didnt get this bike to spend time with the wrenches or ride it on technical trails where a pumper carb might be better.
I have another bike for dirt thrashing that doesnt weigh 400 lbs. Ive had a blast every time Ive ridden my DR somewhere,what sort of carb it has doesnt enter my mind. I mainly want it to run a long time,suspension is what really helped mine out,now that is horrific stock,as is the seat,and tires,and bars,gas tank,grips,taillight,footpegs,my Corbin seat finally broke in with this many miles on it and is good for 600 miles at a sitting.

Skid plate and case savers should be at the top of the list. Remove top chain roller (free). 14t sprocket. Maybe a seat. If it is running good I would wait to get into the carb. You may find suspension is more important to you. Ride it awhile and assess its performance for your style of riding. You will have a lot better idea of what you want after some miles. Good luck

The Pirelli MT43 is rated to 280kg @ 33psi cold.

Leaning on pavement is only an issue if aired down to 12psi or lower.
Then you allow for it.

SEAT!!!!!!!!! That stocker is beyond a torture rack! Hunt down a better one on ebay or put on a Seat Concepts kit.
