Anything I should check apart from the usual stuff I would check on any bike? I always do all my own maintenance. What are they like to work on? I guess a clutch could be a big job. The valve shims might be quite easy to get at? I don't suppose it will need much with that mileage anyway.
I last checked my valves at 54,000 miles and they were right in the middle of the tolerance. They have never needed adjustment. I now have 60k plus and all I've done is just change fluids and a thermostat at 35k.
This isn't the bike for you if you like to work on them because all you have to do is ride it.
