Definitely do the above. I would also have a look at the brake calipers for 
seized/corroded pistons, hoses for cracking.

Don't forget all the usual used bike checks, e.g. bearings, seals, brake disc 
thickness/runout, chain & sprockets, chassis straightness etc. Have critters 
burrowed into the airbox, exhaust, or seat??!?

If the seller has not fitted a new battery, you can expect to do so very 
shortly. Also bring forward the next oil/filter change to catch any debris or 
sludge from storage dislodged by using the bike.
