1999 r1 need direction for mods

Hey I have recently got an 99r1 , it has a few upgrades already but would like to know the what’s the next best step , I would like more power .
It has a 41 tooth rear sprocket (2 less than stock has thrown speedo out)
Yoshumura exhaust (previous owner welded it on tho )
And I’m pretty sure it has an after market swing arm )

If the rear sprocket is smaller than stock, the bike will seem slower. IMO, the next best step would be either get a stock size rear sprocket or go 1 or 2 teeth up from stock. Please update with your impression.

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.
