Bike is completely stripped to the frame while waiting for a new one. I’ve cleaned and greased all bearings, checked all parts and bolts and I am going to grease the electrical connections when assembling. Basically is there anything else I should check over or do? Also what are some setup or overall recommended things for this bike.

Kickstart lever, rear brake lever, and brake caliper slider pins all also need greased if you haven't already. Maybe a good time to clean the brake system and change the fluid. Look up how to properly grease electrical connectors a lot of people just put the grease directly in the connector and that isn't the way to do it.

I’m sure you got all the major maintenance. Not a whole lot you need to do at 60 besides what’s mentioned above.

Yeah I thought I had it covered pretty good. Didn’t want to miss anything being it’s my first time stripping a bike completely down.

I have a '17 and the stock fork springs were way to stiff for me (I weigh 160-ish and ride +30 B / +40cool. If you find yourself pushing or losing the front in the turns, or if you are feeling a lot of chop in your hands, consider changing the springs. I went from a .47 to a .44 and it is perfect for me now. I've even overjumped some pretty big jumps with no bottoming issues.

I’ll have to see, it does push in corners. The previous owner had it revalved but I don’t know the setup.
