When in trouble, shower down on the throttle. It either fixes the problem or ends the suspense.

Recent cam belts and valve adjustment.

Belts are a breeze to replace, but should be done every 2 years or 10k (?) miles.

Valves aren't hard if you can add and subtract in decimals, but the tools and shims can be a problem.

Paying someone else to do it can cost.

Otherwise, just all the usual stuff you'd examine on any used bike, chain, sprockets, bearings, etc...
