As previously mentioned Motorcycles Unlimited can take care of those fork seals/fluid chg (& check bushings) & prolly order any of the other parts you need, check your rear shock seal to make sure its not leaking (you may want to have it serviced too if you have no idea when it was done last) . Cycle gear will likely have a chain/sprockets, tires/tubes etc.

A few things to service before you start thrashing it....

1. Change gearbox oil.
2. Check/ clean air filter (get a spare or 2)
3. Get rid of that old gas, mix up some fresh stuff.
4. Check/ tighten spokes.
5. Check coolant & make sure its fresh (I'd just flush & replace it unless I knew it was recently done).
6. If sprockets show any sign of wear replace them with the new chain.
7. Flush the brakes with clean fluid

Congrats your gonna have a blast on that thing!!!
Holla if you need any assistance, tools etc.

THANKS DUDE!!! Basic Maintenance is my specialty...changing fluids will be the first thing I do prior to riding....I'm going to attemp the fork seals myself as well. I know I'm capable of tearing the forks down off the bike (already done this on a GSXR) and I have a bud who says the fork seals installed on the forks (once they are off the bike) should only take 30-45 minutes...tires and spoke truing will probably be done by Motorcycles Unlimited...chain and sprocket should be a garage project as well. Will keep you in mind if I need a hand.

Thanks
