Surprisingly...not much. Some frame sliders (not required), good tires, ss lines and HH pads (not required), Race plastic (not required), safety wire (not always required).

Minor upgrades to be track ready...unless you plan to go racing and go fully race prepped.

Wynona loved her big brown beaver
And she stroked him all the time.
She pricked her finger one day and it
Occurred to her she might have a porcupine

Not much. I used to buy my TLS' in pairs. One for the track and the other to sport ride on. This is my 8th TLS (I did have one TLR but it was targeted and stolen) and I dont plan on racing it. I will say that the v-twin power is really easy to get used to and it never felt like I was in the wrong gear exiting a corner. All I ever did was screw on the throttle and it torqued its way out with authority.

Nice. I prefer the "R" model but this is still a beauty!

Warped...I'm curious as to why so many S's over the R's? Any reason in particular?

Not necessarily. You would benefit greatly from new fork oil...possibly heavier weight. And new valves and emulators. And you could do springs if you wanna spend the money. You could re work the entire front suspension that way for realatively cheap...couply hundy.
