Got myself a K5 Gen1, things to do?

Hey everyone, new 'busa owner here.

So I got myself a 2005 'busa. It's only been ridden 24,000 km, so quite in it's early phases still. I was wondering if in general there are some certain things to do to this bike?

Example of what I mean: Suzuki VS1400 Intruders have poor clutch springs, and people tend to replace them for stronger ones.

So any general knowledge quirks, fixes or perfomance increases I could/should do? (Powercommander, certain parts, check for certain things, anything pretty much). I'm taking the bike to a checkup for a certified mechanic first, as apparently it hasn't been ridden much in the last years and no knowledge if any maintenance beyond oil changes has been done. But that's not the point here though as all that will be taken care of, just felt like it could be worth mentioning.

Thanks for any tips in advance!

I'm also new to the family, so sorry I can't offer much help.
But welcome to owning a Busa, It's an amazing piece of engineering

Welcome, I own a gen 2 so not real familiar with any gen 1 issues especially the '05s. I would say do all the specified maintenance and then ride it.
