Hard to believe my last login was in 2009...

I picked up an 06 CBR 600rr about two months ago. I had a friend come with my to test it out. It rides great and I have some service records from the previous owner. I've been at school for the past two months and gone home once or twice to get a feel for it. I've been reading through a couple manuals, looking at maintenance and so on. I have yet to experience any problems with it at all. It has 16K miles. I'd like to do a tune up/make sure everything is in order. Records show that the oil was changed about 1000 miles and 8 months ago. Tires look almost new.

If you just bought a used bike what checks/maintenance would you preform?
I'm guessing:
-Oil
-Coolant
-Break fluid
-Spark plugs

I'd prefer to just do a complete tune up so I know everything is in order. Which would include what?

Also I'm interested in a good bluetooth helmet that's around $300.
My friend has also expressed the importance of chain lube.

The power is terrifying/exhilarating, I have yet to decide which!


Thanks

Edit: I also bought these frame sliders. Which I plan on installing next time I go home. What other general mods should I preform?

You're on the right track; I'd change everything that you mentioned. 1000 miles in 8 months is not a lot, which is why I'd change the oil. Brake fluid and radiator fluid should be changed every three years. You might be able to forget about the plugs for now.
