Read a lot here on the forum and you will find advice about all the issues you have questions with.

FWIW I don't lube my chain, they are sealed. I try to keep clean. WD40 and wipe it off good otherwise it gets thrown around. 4000 street and 4000 track miles and chain is OK. Have replaced rear sprocket once, pretty soon for the second time. I change the oil more often because of track duty. Keep things clean, tighten what gets loose. Very reliable so far.

I always wear full leathers when I rode on the street. Didn't really have a problem with leg getting too warm. But I also avoided stop and go traffic. No problems at all on the track. And I don't have the additional heat shield, but do have wrapped exhaust.

250 miles in one day is all I have done, and will not do that again. But then my back is 65 years old. At least lower the tire pressures a little.

THE best performance upgrade is a $2500 two day California Superbike School, several times a year in LAS. In the long run will likely save you money and skin.
