I think Raker and Flites' suggestions are sound. I think that the only thing I would add, is that you have ample time to really check the electrics on the bike. I think I would get that gel battery, change out the plugs to iridiums, check the plug wires and boots for cracks or environmental intrusion, inspect the coil connections, and the feeds from the pickups. Heck, if I had time and the means, I would do the pickup mod for .020 gap. Then, I would definitely check the charging system and ensure all electrical frame and engine ground points on the bike were clean and undamaged.
whistle while you work, cause it's all good easy stuff to check for a trouble free approaching riding season. Lot's of good info in the 'Verses' for all this stuff.
Good Luck, and I hope with these efforts, you never know what that problem in 2010 was!
