Service interval?

Hey guys I've been looking for an RC and I'm wonder what kinda or services are needed and at what mileage, I'm trying to stay away from the 20k mile bikes I want to stay under 15k there's a fellow member here who is selling his sp2 with 13k and I'm seriously thinking about flying out to Arizona and riding back.

Valve clearance check every 16K miles, and the usual oil and and filter changes.
Then occasional air filter change.
No different than many Hondas.
If they were well maintained, these bikes are quite reliable. Like most Hondas.

Valve Clarence check pricey? I know on my my Bimmer a valve adjustments only like $100 for the 1 hour of work. But I have no clue how much needs to come off to get to the valve cover on a bike.
