Exclamation (Extremely) Low miles on an 06. Previous owner neglected to winterize!

I just picked up at 06 with only 732 original miles. It hasnt had an oil change since it rolled of the assembly line. The previous owner was storing it in his kitchen while he was away on 3 back to back deployments, but didnt drain the oil or put anything in the tank. What can I do to prevent any damage from occurring to the bike after so long in "storage" without proper winterization?

The bike starts and runs just fine, but I'm getting a list put together of things I should check/replace before I start really breaking her in. I changed the oil as soon as I got her with mobil 10w40 and bought a new battery. The tires are next just because theyre 6 years old.

Thanks in advance

I would drain the fuel and put some kind of injector cleaner in, and see if u get lucky. Replace all the fluids as well. At least she was stored indoors

Noted. I'm thinking oil and fuel filters are going on the list.

The type of oil to use is always debatable. With that said, it looks like you got fully synthetic race oil. I've done some looking into it in the past. For street use, synthetic blend is the most you will need. Petrolium base is plenty good too. I'm sure others on here will diagree with me, so lets see what others have to say.
Other than that, get quality oil and fluids for your bike.
safe riding!

Use good old Honda 10-40. I wouldn't do full synth yet with such low miles.
Probably gonna want to flush coolant too, clean it out with some distilled water through the system then put some Honda coolant in there.

This may not have occurred yet but check the fork seals and the brake caliper piston seals after a bit of use to ensure no leaking. With it sitting in a dry climate, they may have dried out.

Congratulations on the purchase.
