the right rubber is a good start.
the suspension and a damper is probably the next best thing.
then develop your skill on the bike.
Don't forget the brakes too. may be think about upgrading the pads, altho most stock brakes on most bikes are pretty sharp..

Yeah good brakes is a start. My gixxer's ones aren't very confidence inspiring and at Puke I set the lever out a couple of clicks to my street position. No fun when the levers up against the grip and haven't hit the hairpin yet.

Shaun or Ray Clee might point you in the direction of clicker adjustment for the suspenders for a cheap start. Them gixxers move about a bit when the speed is up. Depends on whether you like it or not.
