Knocked it off the stand cleaning it  :138:

New brake lever required, did learn I can pick it up though.

Hard luck spoons.
I think you must be too vigorous in your cleaning methods.  :164:

Happy that you can see the good in your misfortune.

Fired it up after 12,000 service.

Pondered what the error code meant, then refitted vacuum pipe to airbox, reset DTCs (thanks TigerTool) and all now OK.

10 shims changed, much suspension greased, etc etc.

Just bodywork to refit, then I can have a ride out, see if I like the 17T front sprocket.

Drain and replace fork oil Wp at 28000Kms.

Rinses with very fluid industrial oil.

I put Motorex in 5W.

Time: 3hoo taking without panicking, and especially tighten everything to the couple, given by the technical review.

Control of the bearings of the steering column - Ras.

Headstock lubrication.
Thanks to Muddysump for the fine video.
Only snag was not removing Brake hose clamp at lower yoke.
Bit of a struggle getting it back together but wedged a 2 by 2 against the lower yoke with a jack and that helped.

Used CV joint grease but research says it is OK for small movement bearings.

Fitted large Palmer Products adjustable screen.
Fairly straightforward.
Need a bt of a road test to get the best position.

Also cleaned out the pivot of the side stand. Got really stiff to swing down and up.
Regreased and now free.

Green adjustable levers for a green bike, barkbusters fitted.
Then the next day rode it to work to test. Lever length adjustment not enough to get to ideal 2 fingers for off road, so not worth the bother, but they look good and quality is spot on.

Barkbusters not quite as good at wind/rain deflection as those givi inserts, but then the givi inserts broke on the first drop, being made out of stupid acrylic instead of sensible ABS like the unmarked standard handguard that was over them.

 An esteemed colleague also has excellent taste in motorcycles.
