Inspect your tires too it may need some, the rear might be not as round and has "flattened" out where the rubber meets the road. 2600km isn't a ton bit its probably time for inspections. I wouldn't think much about the pulleys other than wiping off excess black muck but I usually put 3200km until I start thinking about wheel bearing overhauls and bottom bracket overhauls. Inspect all 4 cables too for fraying or broken little wires, it sure is a pain if you loose a cable head in a shifter. If the chain isn't stretching too far I would leave it as well unless you plan on a new cassette. If you put a new chain on a used cassette it wont mesh right and pop and ping sometimes when putting a lot of force down. Just keep up with the chain lube and you should be fine.
