Nice bike! There isn't that much for maintenance believe it or not. Follow your manual for the first oil change then accordingly there after. Ive found running synthetic oil MIGHT have my bike running a bit cooler (I had a starting issue after the bike was ridden a while then turned off for a short time then trying to start again on hot days) but since I started running synthetic the problem has been absent. If you are into doing modifications, when you do the usual trifecta of full exhaust, big air and a fuel processor it really wakes up the engine. Enjoy!
