First tune-up?

Just wondering when I should get my first tune-up on the bike. I currently have 1025 miles on a 2003.

Wow, only 1,025 miles? I thought I got a low mileage one at 4,300 miles. Can't help with the tuneup info though, as I am a new rider and still learning myself.

What do you have in mind as for a 'Tune Up'?
According to the owners manual, plugs should be changed at every 5000mi. (unless ya got the Iridiums)
With the bike sitting for a good while, it wouldn't hurt to also do the oil and clean/oil the air filters, change the final drive oil (manual says those should be done at the first 500mi), and definately lube the splines and get some Seafoam for the gas.
