Welcome to the club. There's a shit ton of upgrades. I'd start with tires and rims, deadlock or reinforced at a minimum.
Take a look at my signature to give you an idea of good upgrades.

Depends how much you willing to spend. You can pick up some YFZ450R shocks for around 200$ which are KYB's and are great bang for a buck, but you'll have to mod them a bit and your quad fairly easy, or you can get some Elkas that are at least triple that cost but of course are better. Another upgrade that ppl have done is sway bar, I would do it my self but there's none available right now, you can read about it if you search for L8ton. Also none suspension stuff but I would recommend two NoToil reusable air filters, to rioters them when you clean them from that NOToil water resident lube. Also aftermarket handle bar, the OEM one are garbage, they bend really easy and it would suck on the trails if you had it break. You can also add HID's if you're planning to ride at night, it's a cheap mod (30$) and there's a write up on here on how to do it.

Welcome to the club

As far as suspension goes, you can get the Elka stage 3 Legacy series from several dealers for 1k. So it's not a cheap upgrade. I paid $1400 for stage 4 fronts only! Make sure your not thinking about wider a-arms, because you will need different shocks. If you just got the quad, I'd ride it awhile and research which way you wanna go before you start spending thousands.

If I were to doit again, I'd extend the front arms to make up for extra width you gain when going to 10" rear wheels. + arms are like 900.00 I plan on this upgrade on my second 700xx. Just need the extra 2k, for the shocks and a-arms, lol.

#1 2008 Honda Trx700xx HMF Performance Exhaust, PCV, Stroked 710cc, 10.5:1 Wiseco Piston, Frt Elka Stage 4's, Fox Podium X rear's, EHS Lid, L8ton 11/16" sway bar, PRM Desert II Bumper & Front Skids.
#2 2008 Trx700xx AMR Reaper, Ehs Big 3, P/P head, Xcalibur Cam, Hard Welded Rockers, +1 In/Ex Valves, +3 Throttle body, 11:1 CP Piston, Elka Stage 3 Legacy Shocks, L8ton 11/16th Sway Bar, PRM Front Skids, Desert II Bumper & Rear Utility Rack.

Or you could Put one of those cheap handlebar braces on. I rolled my quad the other day with the stock handle bars and not even the slightest bend. Blew my mind

Welcome to the forums. I recommend either KYB or fox shock replacement. By the way, check out 4 wheel online, they are on sale with this 2 brands.
