Cvt mods are the best way to get more raw low end torque....

Grizzly 18 gram weights, 1.5 mm Shims, purple epi spring, or machined sheave.

I and many others a big fans of Coop45 machined sheaves. 25% lower initial cvt ratio then stock no top speed loss

1.5 mm Shims are about 12% lower initial cvt ratio but 3-4 mph top speed loss.

I did not gain anything with the addition of the EHS tuner....in my opinion in stock form it's not required.... But if your going to mod your intake or exhaust systems a tuner becomes important

As mentioned by Vincent, CVT mods! CVT mods are easy, can be cheap and also, safe. Pipe (full or slip-on) mods will require the tuner to make sure you don't start running lean. What I found from a slip-on exhaust and FI tuner, is not much actual gain in terms of seat of the pants feel but it will increase the exhaust loudness/note. Some like the increase in loudness, some don't. I didn't like it for all day rides which is something I do more frequently.

Also, don't go and buy some packaged clutch kit. Consider looking into what Vincent listed out by buying each piece separately.
