first thing is always let ur bike warm up first. before even riding it. i find that mine runs so much better and smoother if you let it warm up.
Check ur chain everytime you go out because they come slack very often i find....tighten it up if its got too much play in it....dont do it too tight tho coz itll fuck up...leave about 25mm of play in the middle ..........also lube it up
check the wheel barings. to do this just grab the tyre and try and move it from side to side if ur whole wheel moves u will need new bearings.... dont forget about it coz it could cause major damage.
check ur faring bolts coz they vibrate out. just go round every week and tighten em up.
last week i took my front sprocket case off and i couldnt believe my eyes.....there was sooo much shite in there. my front sprocket could hardly even spin round coz there was grit and oily shitty gunk clogging it all up.....i advise everyone to give theres a clean.
give ur brakes a bit of clean from time to time
spray ur exhaust with wd40 it stops the bastard rusting.
i find that i have to check my handle bars from time to time coz they come loose.
and i know that i somtimes cant be arsed but KEEP IT CLEAN and give her a bath
