Stripped the front brakes for the third time, cleaned thoroughly and re-fit. They're still sticking slightly too

Same thing is happening to mine too. But they stick real bad, the wheel barely spins on it's own.
As per advice here I cleaned the pistons and greased the pins and floaters. No go.

Good on ye.
20 years ago I lived in a 3rd floor flat and I brought my CBR600F2 up the stairs and proudly parked it at the foot of my bed for the 7 months of Canadian winter

The only shakey bit was half way through the winter we got notices that the fire inspectors would be entering each apartment to check the sprinklers. I put a bunch of cardboard boxes and bed sheets over the bike and made it look like a big shelf unit... they were none the wiser it was parked there with a full tank of fuel

Not much...

After bringing it out for a nice ride on Friday and Saturday, I decided not to wash it. Somehow it still looked okay being a little muddy. (Translation: I was just too damn lazy - and the Jets game was coming on soon.) Now I am stuck having to think about it as more snow is forcasted for tomorrow.

Check that you've not over tightened the 10mm bolts and the 32mm bolt for the spindle. 10mm bolts 15Nm and the 32mm bolt 70Nm.

I have seen that dirt road off of hwy 1, where does it go?
It heads south about 15 miles or so and comes out on PCH, just north of Big Sur.

Don't worry- "a little muddy" seems to be the natural state of these bikes. I think that they are happier that way.
