Not a comprehensive long-track list, but a good start.
Change brake fluid to GOOD DOT4 like Motul or ATE super blue with a high boiling point.
Change oil. I add 1/2 a quart of oil to help prevent starvation. No empirical data, just something I do.
Check your suspension and ensure end links, bushings, and shocks are in good shape.
SA2005 or newer Helmet, good fitting shoes with a small footprint, and gloves (let someone kid you about using gloves...the first time your hand slips mid turn, you'll never NOT use them. Keep your seatbelt tight. With our stock seats, you are going to divot your driver side speaker grille when you start pushing it.
Good non-ceramic pads. Carbotech XP8 are fantastic for starting out.
Bring a tire gauge. Pressures are important.
LISTEN TO YOUR INSTRUCTOR, WATCH YOUR MIRRORS, AND KEEP YOUR HEAD.
