Might also look at getting a PC, III they are pretty cheap and you can update the tune yourself.

Just the can, you should be good.

New to you, do the brake fluid change, drain the fuel unless it's been ridden recently. With that low mileage would have my doubts. Change the oil and coolant.

Hello and welcome!

On that year model there is a known issue with the valve cover gasket. If it's leaking, the dealer should replace it free of charge.

I owned this bike for a little over a year and it's a beast. I would highly recommend going -1, +2 or just plus 3 to the rear sprocket. These bikes are geared really high so by going -1 +2 with your sprockets it will pull like a bat outta hell. Vortex sells a excellent kit to do this and its not that expensive. (the front sprocket will give you hell when you try to take it off). If you change the coolant I wouldn't recommend putting race ready coolant in unless your positive your going to track the bike. I had better lucky with regular coolant instead of Engine Ice ect. If you do get Engine ice, make sure you thoroughly flush your system. It should take about 5/6 times to completely flush it out. Don't get impatient because Engine ice does not mix well with other coolants. I speak from experience. I pulled the stock MUFFLER and 100% gutted it and it sounded better than any aftermarket exhaust I heard on that bike so that is a option if you have the tools and the skills (this took me about 4-6 hours but can be done much faster with right tools). I have a youtube sound clip, if your interested in seeing it just let me know. This bike is a lot of fun and easy to ride, the extra weight of this 600 gives it a good planted feeling especially on rainy days. I did quite a bit of maintenance on this bike so if you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Check to see if the factory recall was done on the gasket. If not take it to a kawi dealer and have them install it so you arnt leaking oil near your headers.
