Looking to up grade from a B-12 to a DL 1000

I'm finding my knees not liking long days on my 1200 Bandit so am thinking of a V-Strom. I'll probably right out of the gate switch to the Scorpion mufflers,a 16 tooth counter sprocket,and a power commander. Anything else I should look at right away? This will be a street only bike to replace my Bandit. I've got a DR 650 for dual sporting.
Thanks,

Lot's of Oregon Strommers! Sounds like a good start, depending on what you plan to do, a bash plate is good, new fork springs and brace are excellent bang for the buck.

There's a lot you can do to mod the Strom...it's an empty canvas! EnjoY!

I forgot to mention both my DR and B-12 have Race-teced front ends and Mr Ed's seats and figured the DL would get the same treatment.
