Checking the tightness of bolts and nuts is also done. For do-it-yourself, make sure that the engine bolts (holding it to the frame) are tight. Make sure that the allen (hex head) bolts that hold the case covers on are snug, especially around the water pump.
The oil change is to remove the particles worn off of the transmission gears and to a lesser extent from the seating of the engine rings and such in the engine. It will not hurt to use a new filter as well.
Checking the rear wheel alignment and lubing the chain is standard. If the chain is too loose or tight, it should be adjusted.
