Welcome and Congrat's on the best SV made!

What part of the world are you from?

If it were me, I'd go with;

Oil and Filter change
New Air Filter....K&N
Spark Plugs
New Brake Fluids front/rear, I'd almost gaurantee it's bad...get a MightyVac and it's a 10 minute job.
Pull and check Brake Pads
Flush Radiator / replace coolant
Inspect the chain / sprocket. Me...I'd just go new so you know where you're at.
Valve check / adjustment.
Tank or 2 with Seafoam mixed in the fuel.

Then...on to new front springs for under $100 and then a GSXR shock. You'll be amazed at how much better your bike handles and feels. Night and Day difference!

Ohhh...and Blinker Fluid! check that, too. :vroom:

I would err on the side of caution and that the previous owner lied and didn't do any of the above. It will never hurt you to do so.

Get a hold of the Owners Manual and you will see a table for all the maintenance intervals. Buy a Service Manual, it will be your best friend when it comes to repairs.
