Yeah, that should be pretty much it. Tires might not need replacing as long as there isn't any cracking evident on the sidewalls. Battery might still be ok if your buddy left it on a charger. Brake pads, chain/sprockets, and spark plugs might all still be perfectly fine, depending on when your friend last replaced them. I'd check the wear on those items before replacing. No need to spend money that you don't have to. Although you do have a helluva deal there- a free sportbike! You have a good friend.
One other thing I would check is to have a peek inside the gas tank, if it wasn't properly stored (preferably with a full tank of gas + fuel stabilizer) there could be rust in there.
Anyway, good luck with your project. Hope you get it running and out on the road.
