Ok, Well go through everything. Change the fluids in the engine and transmission. Then go through it and retorque everything. Check and make sure the transmission is tightened down. Check the bearing flanges and make sure they are tight. Check the transmission adjustment and amount of control travel. Spray the drive and driven clutch with silicone. Remove the belt and check it for chunks missing and condition. If it looks ok, put on belt dressing by hand on the outside edges and reinstall. Check the chain tensioners and chain tension. Check tire pressure and run it at 2 to 3 psi, check tire pressure everytime you use the machine.

These are all basic things to check. It may be in great shape and not need anything done to it. So just give it a good looking over. Take your time learning to drive it. If you don't have a fire extinguisher in the vehicle get one and mount it where it can be easily reached and deployed.
