Crankcase breather
On the right side of the bike, near the center stand, you will find a bunch of rubber pipes. One of these has a bung in the end. Remove the bung, catch any fluid or crud, and replace it.

Not covered here
There are a few more advanced service tasks that I have not covered here, because they are significantly more difficult. Usually they are only required every two or four services, or just very occasionally. Those marked with * require special tools, and £ indicates that they are probably best left to a garage. They are:

Steering head bearings adjustment *£
Valve clearances check & adjust *£
Brake fluid change
Cooling system flush out
Brake caliper and master seals £
Replace brake & fuel hoses

Feel free to request more info on any of these tasks.
