Congrats, I love seeing bikes tat are ridden. My '06 had 50K at 22 months old, then I sold it.

20k - 60k = 40k under your belt on the bike... That's some good use right there. I just made it past 300 miles today in less than a week since my purchase - I'm definitely looking up to you!

@mran556 i replaced my oil pan last year, but that was due to a low side. i also had my fork oil changed and obviously the seals were changed. besides that and regular oil changes, no major work has been done.

You have never done the valves? Have you checked ever to insure they were in spec? Sorry not sure if you consider that major work.

I sold mine with 50,000 miles and had never checked them...but, I don't recommend that. It isn't difficult.

Start checking your valves. You'll need to change out the shims if you have aftermarket exhaust or do track.
Aftermarket exhaust and doing track days have nothing to do with changing out the valve shims. OUT of SPEC is the reason to change valve shims to bring them back into spec. Having said that, lots of track time at higher RPM may in fact accelerate the time span that causes the valves to go out of spec, and certainly should be inspected more often than the normal Honda guidelines, but aftermarket exhaust and track days don't automatically require valve maint.

I bought my 03 about 14 months ago with 30K on it, now has 49900. Do roughly 20K/year. :)

Was trying to keep it short but yes this is the reason.
