Never been to the track, I would suggest getting decent pit stuff. Don't have to go all out yet but get stuff you can use for a long time. You want to be comfortable and be able to relax after you get off the track. EzUp, some chairs, good cooler, at a minimum. Trailer, fan/AC, table, bicycle/pit bike etc if you want to really chill out. Make sure the forks are straight, slap some track plastics on it, rearsets, clipons, set up your suspension for you.
You are going to sign up for beginner for your first few trackdays, keep the right mindset, you will get bumped up if they think you are ready or you could ask and they will see if you are ready. I only say that because of your "will race for parts" joke. Go ahead and get a 1 piece suit since you plan to make this a habit, used or cheap is a good route, plenty of good quality cheap suits out there, boots, spare gloves and helmet. Wait to get your power upgrades, no point right now unless the exhaust is busted up from the other guy's wreck.
You have plenty of time to get it in shape for the track
