Time to upgrade to a 2009 gixxer 1000

It's been 2 years now with the SV650 and I wanted to thank everyone who adviced me on this starter bike.
I found a black 2009 with 18K miles, one owner, super clean, runs great. Couple of minor recalls done at the dealer it was bought from, but no valves adjustment. Price after negotiations went down to $7200
What are the things I should be looking at/worried about before buying this bike ?
Thank you all and I appreciate your input.

18K on my 2011, no problems at all so far. Recall on brake master cylinder was the only service other than basics.

No issues with these bikes. Just look at regular high-wear items. There was also a recall on the kickstand switch bolts as they come loose (or just pull them yourself and put loctite on them). I've got 35,000km's on mine and no issues at all.

42,000 miles on mine only issues I had on my particular bike were oil pump went out first 5,000 miles then the kick stand bolt issue and just recently the soldering for the headlights on the right hand switch came off. That's about it.
