Change all the fluids, Engine oil, brake, and clutch and forks. Change the belts, Fuel Filter, and Airfilter. I would also service the valves while the belts are off anyway (the are videos on youtube for this if you want to tackle it yourself). The Tyres will probably be toast too (i recently bought an Aprilia that had been standing and it was like riding a bike with tyres made of hard plastic).

Assume everything needs checking. get a Multimeter and a Torque wrench and weekends works will see it done. All this would apply to ANY bike that had been standing that long.
Do you know why the bike was out of use, did it have an issue which led to it sitting around?

Enjoy, they are GREAT Bikes
