What is included with a new FJR?

I might be buying a 2013 very soon and, for those of you who've purchased a brand new FJR from a dealership, I was wondering what sorts of "extras" come with a new one that I should expect to be included with this 2013 For Sale By Owner FJR? For example; bag liners, tools, pads, phone connectors, etc.? I'm basically trying to make sure I'm not 2 weeks post purchase only to find out, "Dang, why didn't I ask (seller's name) about that?" What comes with a new one?

Basic tool kit and bag liners.....

....and a spare lock in case you want to add a top case. That's all I got, aside from cruise control, heated grips, electric windshield, small glove box with power port inside,....... and all the thrust I'll ever need.
If yours doesn't have the rear mud flap at the front of the swingarm, (mine did not) ask them to put one on, they are only about $13.00 U.S.

Bag liners
the little plastic, color-matched covers for the holes when you remove the bags
owner's manual (of course)

what else .... anyone?

Did they buy the Yamaha Extended Service (YES)? If so, you'll need that info.

@Mr_Ed : Yes, he did buy the ESP, so I'll be sure to follow up on that.
@BTRNSX : !!!The bike comes with an extra lock??? Thanks for the tip about the mud flap. I'll be sure to look for it!

Depending where you live, a red master key for the immobilizer.
Also you may not get the pannier liners.

There is a good thread on FJRforum.com with a new buyers checklist, a must !

Original key code?

Yes, a new bike comes with an extra lock. At least here in the States, have no idea where you are.

Be sure to ask- is ESP the Same as Y.E.S.?

ESP is a general term for Extended Service Plan. I think Yamaha calls theirs YES just about everywhere. Well maybe not in Japan, but who knows.

I am in the US, and when I got my 2012 FJR1300 new Last September, it came with the following:

-Service and Warranty Information for YES
-2 factory keys, along with a little metal tab that has the key code. I recommend that EVERYONE make spare keys, and with they keycode you can get them cut from most motorcycle key dealers. This way you can keep the original factory keys nice and new looking, as they are not the strongest keys out there.
-tool kit under the seat
-plastic covers for the pannier mounts, color matched
-extra lock for use with the tail case
-liners for the side cases

Also, here is a list of things that you should do immediately if you get it, if the previous owner has not checked it:
-make SURE that the two security allen screws that hold the pannier locks together are screwed in all the way, and threadlocker has been used. If not, you can lose your locks! When I checked mine, one was almost falling off, and It had less than 2000 miles on it at that point.
-check the position of the handlebars. They can be moved to one of three positions for your own comfort. I am 6'2" and I like mine in the middle position (stock) but I also have kind of short arms for my height.
-check the seat position. The yamaha seat has two positions: standard and high. You change this by taking out the seat, and moving a plastic bracket that the seat attaches to.
-set the front suspension to stock, and make sure the two sides match. When I got mine from the dealer, one side was on 2.5, and one was on 3 in terms of spring preload. Sure it's not a big difference, but they should be identical for best handling.
-check the color of the brake and clutch fluid. Chances are that motorcycle still has the stock fluid in it, which by now can be the color of root beer.
