Hey bro. Thanks for your reply.

I don't have the service manual.

I can't do it myself as I don't have much time at my disposal but is there any guide available? And the relay switch, can we buy it separately? Any part number available ?

PS @ abobobilly

Get the service manual. Well worth its price of $20-$30.

The service manual + this forum and you should be covered for just about anything.

@599er! Bro, that is so helpful. Let me look around and see when can I get it done.

By the way, bought and installed the HEL Brake Lines. Two times I almost had an accident because brakes failed to grip the tyre fully. The whole front and rear setup costed me almost 100 GBP, which is like AED 500 in UAE. Almost paid AED 200 for its installation at Honda Service Center. (I'm so busy that I had to, otherwise there is nothing I love more than doing it by myself).

Here are some pictures to feast your eyes.

Just use regular oil that Honda recommends. The book never calls for synthetic, and Mineral oil is for break-in only. Some bikes come with it from the factory, but it's never put back in after the first oil change. Mineral oil allows the rings and gears to seat properly. 200 is fine for temp especially considering rour 30C+ temps over there. I think the cooling fan comes on around 230 degrees. Make sure it does, or you will get an over temp light.

I recently installed HEL brake lines as well. Bugs me that the rear line is waaaay too long. I've done the same thing you did, which is to turn the front attachment point inward to take up some of the slack.
