Hello

Usual stuff really. 

History and crash damage. Look at the frame behind the rear brake pedal and the gear lever pedal. If it's been over then they can dent the frame. Same with the swingarm. The exhaust can hit and damage that also. 
Try to see receipts for work and where carried out. With tha mileage the vales should of even checked so piece of mind to see and know it's even done. Other than that ensure it has a half decent can on an not a stubby as it won't balance quite right. 
Any upgrades been carried out? I'd suggest a suspension reguild also.

I must admit it was the first time buying a used bike and my first 1000 after riding a 600 diversion 4 years prior so I should have checked, but after 6 months ownership the clutch slave cylinder went on my 2001 Mille at 28k miles. I replaced it with an Oberon, but might be worth asking how old it is.
