I'd do shock first just because the stock item is attrocious. Have a look at French manufactured Shock Factory - K-Tech quality for less $$. The front isn't near as bad and can be dialled in. They supply all the top World Sidecar Championship teams - must be doing something right with only 2 inches of travel............................ Shock Factory

I disagree,I think the front end is more important at the track then the rear

they are both important but If i could only do one I would do the forks

actually I did this in the early 2000's when I was racing a GSXR750. I sent the forks off to traxxion dynamics and was on a stock rear shock for a full season. I was racing in the expert class in CCS Florida.
It's an opinion but difficult to get the power down and stay down with the rear pogo stick. You can play around with oil/ air gap at the front to fine tune a reasonable fork but the rear?? Soooo bad.
