Welcome. First piece of advice is to buy a shop manual.

Oil = Honda HP4 (no moly) both sides, 690cc engine, 650cc tranny.

Air filter = No Toil (not the pre-lubed one) lubed with PJ-1. To clean it use PJ-1 cleaner or mineral spirits and then clean it again with Dawn dish soap, and then run it in the washer with a batch of clothes.

Just follow the hours recommendation in the manual for air filter and oil.

Since you are new to your bike, check the valves right away, and then after a few rides, and then after a few more rides. The idea is to notice a trend of how much they move and how fast. Once you know what to expect, then you know when you ought to check them.

If you don't know the history of your bike, you oght to pull the top end off and inspect the piston and rings (ssee the shop manual) and replace as necessary. You can check the crank small end at the same time.

Thanks for taking the time to write, definitely will check valves and piston, im guessing a full check is necessary.
