For sure adjust valve clearances-- I mean that is a given
Check the cam sprockets and chain for wear while in there, check the tensioner and make sure it is good-functions smoothly and doesn't show any wear etc...
Throttle body sync, TPS adjustment, lube the cables, flush the brakes, all pretty standard maintenance affair.
Then of course you have suspension....how old is the fork oil?- what about the steering head bearings, they surely would benefit from cleaning and regreasing or replacing to a better bearing all together
If you are going back to stock exhaust- you'll probably atleast want to check the map on the PC- goods odds it was never set up properly anyways, so you will want to address that, they simply don not need 20-40% more fuel dumped on them, in any rpm range and all too often many of those maps people profess as "working" that is exactly what they have
as far as the coolant recovery tank......about any plastic weld, or even a jbweld I am sure would be fine, I can't see it obviously but I am guessing it is up high above normal coolant line, so it is just to keep it from splashing out- it may be better to get a different tank with the tab still intact though, so it mounts securely... but again I cannot see it
I am sure there is more too.... but I need to go back to work and earn my payday
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
