Only up to 3000 miles on my 500F.

Oil + Filter changes at 3000 miles.... if synthetic oil, 5000 miles (next time)

Chain oiling at 500 miles using DuPont Teflon Chain Saver, 11 oz $6.96 at WalMart.
Clean chain with degreaser at 3000 miles.

Chain adjust.... that depends upon your riding, but about 5000 miles after initial setup.

Air filter, again, if you ride on dusty roads, it is more often that paved road riding.
For paved roads, about 10,000 miles.

I see no advantage to the K&N filters. Honda should know what works best for this bike.
K&N just wants to sell you stuff.

Have a good riding season,
