Welcome , Go. Everything you asked about is subject to personal opinion and your pocketbook. It’s all available on this forum and others using the “Search “ function. No need changing anything until you’ve ridden the bike for a while in stock condition and decide your priorities. The stock air filter flows as well as anything when it’s new and clean. No reflash needed until you change the exhaust. You should set your suspension SAG ( look it up) for your weight to get the best handling. Plenty of information on that on the various forums.

I am researching a new or new to me monster right now.
Can I ask where you are and what a screaming deal is?

I just picked up my 2017 797 in January for $7k with 2k miles on it. I haven’t ridden a motorcycle since ‘06 and I decided crotch rockets weren’t for me anymore so I went for something a bit more “refined”... got a used 797. I thought it was a good deal because it already had a bunch of Ducabike parts which usually get put on first without messing with the bike to much; mostly aesthetics. It also already had a Termignoni exhaust too (I’m sure I misspelled it).

Hey guys I’m looking at buying a 2012 1100 EVO and had a question about something I saw in the pictures. Does anyone have any idea what that wire could be zip tied to the frame?

It‘s a battery tender cable, which allows you to keep the battery charged when not being ridden. I would have placed it in a more concealed location (for looks), but it’s easy to relocate.

Maybe not
It is an SAE type plug that the tender would use...
BUT
It could just be there to power something up on the bars. (Like mine) Follow the wires.
If it is for a tender it should be wired direct to the battery terminals I believe.
