How much you spend depends on what you want out of the bike and how long you plan on keeping it for. If this is going to be a learner track bike, then the minimum modifications will do. Suspension tune for your weight/style, clip ons, rear sets, SS lines + race pads, case covers, frame sliders and obviously race fairings. As you get faster, you will want to upgrade things like the master cylinder, fork cartridge kits, rear shock, wheels, rotors, etc.
As far as race fairings go, you can't go wrong with any of the popular brands, except HotBodies. Sharkskinz, Armour Bodies, Catalyst and even Optimal (budget line) make great bodywork, I'd stay away from anything out of China. Buy cheap. Buy twice. Some times it's worth it to spend a bit more for quality parts.
If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, then buy everything and do it all at once. But only if you plan on keeping it for a few years.
