I don't care how little miles a bike can have or the fact that you got it from a dealership. Replace all the fluids not just check but replace and do a basic tune up. Plus Unless you personally know the mechanic, verify the the job was done. Ask for the old parts.
I can not nor will I ever trust mechanics. This is why I do all my own work.
Just sayin

Actually, if there is a GW specialty shop in your area, it should probably be checked over by them. Usually when a recently purchased Wing comes to me, I find an incredible amount of things wrong. The same is true when a DIYr brings his Wing in. This usually happens from an Owner not following their maintenance schedule. Usually they will pick and choose what their abilities allow them to do IE: air filter, oil and filter, brake and clutch fluid, rear end fluid, coolant change, tires and brakes.

Thus my constant preaching to "follow your maintenance schedule." The cheapest way to ride a 5th gen is to follow every line of that maintenance schedule using Honda products to maintain it with.
