Motul 5100 oil! I would stay with the own spark plug and stay paper air filters.
As for the exhaust, is it a full or slip? How many miles? If your having to tighten ur chain often then it may be time to replace it. If your sprockets look more pointed than before or are damaged, time for replacement. Also if your gonna replace either, it's recommended to replace both at the same time

Plugs: NGK, change evey 10k miles.

Air filter: BMC or stock, service or change every 600 miles or more often in high dust environment.

Oil: Motul 3000 20w50, change every 22500 - 300 miles

Chain brands: RK, DID, EK, Tsabaki, Regina. Lube and adjust every 500 miles or if you ride in the rain.
There's a lot of good chain brands, but the offer different models of chains from long wearing to not so lomg wearing.
My personal suggestions for that bike are RK GXW or XSO or DID ZVM.

Clean the chain with WD40 on a rag and I use the BelRay Super Clean chain lube.

The FI code is probably C46 which you'll need to bypass a wire at the ECU.

I am sure he meant 2,500 - 3,000 miles on the oil.

Also, not sure if he meant 6,000 on the air filter because 600 seems much too aggressive.

Get a rivet type master link on your new chain, not a clip type. You can look into a 520 chain conversion for your bike if you want quicker acceleration.
