Unsane:
I recently changed the chain on mine with an RK - it seems to be fine. If you are gonna do sprockets (and want some more pep) I would definitely suggest going down a tooth or two on the front - depending on the type of riding you will be doing. I don't mind helping you with the jets and clip-ons... have been looking at the fastfromthepast clip-ons myself!

At this point you might be maxing out the small carbs, take it to the next level and go EFI with a full MPFI system. If you do all these things or even half of them... you might be able to say you have a R... till then its a GS and treat it as such... its not a race bike... Its about as slow as a mildly tuned honda... guess you could always just throw some N2O on it and call it a day...

Sold (I ended up getting the 70mm high-rise, you're right that if I dont like the position I can set them lower).

Can anyone explain how to get them under the plates? otherwise Im going to have to go to the shop for this one.

Undo the top clamp (around the top of the forks and the steering stem - I think it's 4 bolts?) after getting everything else out of the way. Tank, handle bars, maybe unbolt the instrument cluster, yada yada yada. It's really not hard to do since your controls are coming off the bars anyway. Are you getting new grips? If so, now is the time to replace them.
