Where to start

I picked up a 2012 V Star 1300, my very first bike. The only performance upgrade it has is the 2 into 1 Cobra Exhaust. Everything else looks stock to me. Where would you all recommend I start with performance upgrades that are going to give me the bst bang for my buck? I was thinking new air intake and a fuel mgmt system. Am I on the right track? Any suggestions or words of wisdom?

Thanks in advance!

Cobra air intake and fuel management system for sure. You will probably see 8 - 10% increase in performance.

Definitely on the right track grape. Did them all to my 09' Yamaha 950 tourer and I've never looked back. Shop around, there are some good deals out there.
