I’d say ‘consumables’ would be:

air filter, air filter cleaner, air filter oil, fuel filter, fuel line, throttle cable, chain, any hardware that sticks out below the chassis (grinds down)

Chassis:  front/rear bumpers on occasion will get ground down (front bumper on the bottom lip, rear bumper can grind against your tire).  Axles get bent.  Kingpins, kingpins get bent about once a year due to bumping something/someone.  Rear axle bearings wear out.  Rear axle gear teeth wear out.

Engine:  ALWAYS keep a spare piston/ring/wrist pin/bearing.  You never know and it usually isn’t good.  Spark plugs, buy them buy the pack for use jetting.  Seals/gaskets, every time you take the cases apart it seems the gaskets get a little damaged.  You might want to consider a spare crank assembly.  Definitely need extra springs and viton rings for the pipe/manifold.  Spare base gaskets for the cylinder.
