I will answer a question first....no you do not resurface motorcycle discs, they are not thick enough.
I am a slacker...I will admit it. The bike has 12,000 miles. I would do the following first:
2) Check chain and sprockets, expect the sprockets to be fine.
3) Probably throw iridium plugs in it so I could forget them for another 50,000 miles.
4) Verify air filter condition. 20,000 miles between changes on the street is fine.
5) Check battery.
6) Ride it.
-Brake fluid dark, might change it.
-Coolant I change based on pH testing not time or mileage. On an aluminum engine coolant lasts a long time.
-Brakes grabby, I would do a few moderate speed, careful, but hard, brake applications on a dry road to clean the shoes and disc off, OEM brakes are quality pieces.
-If the brakes drag and make noise when I spun the wheel with the bike on a stand, I would consider lubing the caliper pins.
-Valves, around 25,000 miles and expect them to be near the tight end of spec on the exhaust. If they are, leave them alone unless you are mechanically inclined. If a shop does this service, have them set the valves with intakes mid range and exhaust on the upper end of range.
-Hoses, when they leak only. The injector rail hose does leak often, but you will smell gas on cold start up.
I am not into fixing stuff until it needs it.
