How long has the bike been stored? Was it prepared for storage properly, or just parked after the last ride?
Old tires can be unsafe, even if they look brand new.
Here is a link to help you find and read the 4 digit date code that tells you when your tire was made, and what that means to safety.
In this example the code is 3505, which means the 35th week of 2005.
Did the toolkit come in the toolbox in the back of the seat? The Kawi tools are not very high quality, but the 18mm spark plug socket is useful if you have it. If not you need a deepset, thinwall 18mm socket to get the plugs out of one recepticle on each cylinder. I think wib714 has a Craftsman part number for a 3/8" drive socket in his sigline.
Edit-- here is wib`s info: spark plug socket, craftsman part# 44435 18mm deepwell 3/8 drive
If you don`t have any tools yet, consider getting the "Metrinch" wrenches and sockets. You can use the same set on fractional inch nuts and bolts, ie. 1/2", 9/16" etc., as well as 12mm, 14 mm etc. jthill was the member who introduced them here I think.
Read through the ten things and ask about specific questions you still have.
You need an inexpensive electrical multimeter to check voltages, resistance etc. Probably $10-20 at Harbor Freight.
Probably need a battery tender or low amp (1.5-2 amps) battery charger too.
If you have an older style wet cell battery with 6 caps on top to add distilled water, change it out for a Maintenance Free-Absorbed Glass Mat (MF-AGM) at the first sign of trouble.
This Deka is a good one at a good price, if you can`t find one locally.
