For 8K service I did the following:

Changed oil and filter (I change mine every 2K)
Changed plugs, NGK CR9EK/CR10EK
check the air filter and replace it neccasary
check chain & sprockets (replaced mine at 13K)
And just checked all the cable and bolts.

you wont need a chain a sproket if they are factory. I've got 22k miles on mine with no significant signs of wear on the sprokets

Not to thread jack but, how are you getting that much life out chain and sprockets with little wear?

^ On my 02 I pulled the chain and sprockets at 19k and they looked great and I barely even waxed the thing. The stock chains are monsters!

At 8k your plugs will be fine...I didnt change mine till 16k and they still looked good.

I'd clean the air filter and change the oil if you haven't recently and like agaupt said just check for any missing or loose bolts.

The original question was answered above.

As for stock chain and sprocket life, I currently have around 18K miles on mine and everything looks near-mint. :thumbub
