Welcome to the forum! I also have a 'naked' 2016 model (red/blk) so I think you've done brilliantly with your purchase.
What is the riding season like there in Alberta? 2 months long? (Kidding! Sort of...)
Maybe you should buy a 'kit' to convert your GSX-S to a snowmobile so you can ride it year round?
All joking aside, things you "should" have are a Puig Sport screen (get the dark tinted one...looks trick AND allows you to take your naked bike up to higher speeds...just for giggles.)
Secondly, forget the exhaust...for now. Come back to it later. What you really NEED is a rear shock. That's the weak link on this machine. The one the factory put on there is essentially a cast off reject from old Yugos. Wilbers, K-Tech, and Nitron make good replacements. Frankly ANYTHING you find to put on the bike will be better than what's on it.
Disregard all of this if your roads are glass-smooth and the only corner you take is to turn into your driveway. Otherwise...
Good to have you here!
