ditto...

all bearings.

Fork service - replace dust seal/fork seal. new oil.

Shock service - New oil, proper nitrogen pressure, and seal.

Take the opportunity while these are out of the bike to put in the right size springs is necessary

Check your valves as rex said

Check all engine seals.

Verify that all clutch plates are good and still in spec.

check for any frame cracks or subframe cracks.

Check all bolts and torque/locktite as necessary.

Sprockets

maintain the spokes and balance of the wheels.

bleed the brakes - new fluid!

lube cables.

any jetting of the carb while everything is apart. make sure all jets are clear and just a basic carb clean to verify everything is functional replace any seals if they show signs of wear.

flush cooling system

should keep you bust for a while.
