The prices seem fair enough. But I see a huge problem, SUSPENSION and tires should be at the top of the list. My list would be more like this:
~Suspension-new shock if $$$ permits and rebuilt forks, damper is usually required equipment
~DOT race tires-don't pay anywhere close to retail, between $250-300 a set mounted and balanced
~Race body work-you get what you pay for, put on the frame sliders while you're at it
~Brake Lines and pads-Galfer and Goodridge lines are very popular
~Clip Ons and Rearsets-both not necessary items, but nice to have

I'm actually an advocate for staying with stock as long as you absolutely can stand it... It will allow you to appreciate how much better aftermarket suspension really is. It goes without saying, but in both cases your suspension should be dailed in as best as it can for you, the rider.

My list would be in this order...
- Sliders (frame and swingarm)
- Steering Damper
- Rearsets
- Bodywork
- Brakelines and Pads
- Suspension
- DOT Race Tires & Warmers
- Power Commander

Bubba makes a good point, you get what you pay for. Then again with bodywork, it's not expected that they have to last very long. So, it's not that big of a deal if they suck. Trust me, you will have to replace them sooner or later.

I was thinking about doing the plactics, frame sliders, and steering damper...

do some track days, and little by little get ready for next season of CCS...

My supplier is selling 6 lap old power race tires for 120.00 for the set.. good buy?

As far as clip-ons are concerned, just use the stock ones until you "need" (read: need to be replaced) new ones and then replace them with aftermarket ones.

Here's a better list (don't mind me if you already have some of this stuff):

Front and rear stands
Tire warmers
Easy up
rug
air compressor or tank
generator

bike stuff:

damper
stiffer front springs
triple clicker rear shock
rear sets (full set; don't go with a half set)
any steel braided lines for the front only (you'll never touch your rear brakes)
Vesrah brake pads (again; front only)
spools
frame sliders
race plastics (find out who gives contingecy money, like Hotbodies)
PC
full exhaust system with a custom map



You don't need aftermarket clip ons...............
