did you have any kind of insurance full coverage or something that might help in a situation like that?
Yeah, they took it during the day in a relatively busy residential area. Unfortunately I was too cheap to get the comprehensive coverage... actually it was not even offered to me, I've been told you often have to specifically request it. Anyway, lesson learned.

Oil change , Valve check , and Grease on all the necessary places done.
YSS Shock and Dunlop D605 are big improvement in the handling ,

Thanks for all that Cory, Just done my bike this morning and did the swingarm pivot too. (it was completely missing any goodies from the grease fairy BTW)
I didn't know what to torque the pivot axle to so I guessed at 120Nm

Doing all this along with the wheels took no more than a couple of hours and it is something that if you're handy with a spanner, then you should really get it done as there was no grease at all on the axles and bolts and just the smallest amount of grease on the needle bearings, if you're not handy with the spanners then pay someone to do it for you!

I also checked out the fasteners on the rear chainwheel, I managed to undo all but one of them which appeared to be made of some kind of cheese based substance, all bar this one have been removed and copperslipped so at least I know that come chainwheel change time I should only have to drill the one unless I get access to a 12 volt impact driver to ease the damaged one out.

Doh!

I'll not be riding the bike until next week now so it'll stay as it is until then but thanks for that SAPD, Honda UK don't have the workshop manual available yet and I refuse to buy one from the states and pay as much or more in postage than the book actually costs!

After I got one from Helm, the price came down right through the dealer, talk about Doh!

I did this project the other day and while I was at it, I put anti-seize on all of the exhaust system fasteners. The cylinder head studs are most important.

The link bearings on my bike weren't too bad, but the swingarm bearings had almost no grease in them. It's worth the time to do this service.

While we're on the topic, how big/heavy is the service manual? I have a friend coming over from DC who is kindly bringing some parts already for me. If the manual is a reasonable size and weight I will have one sent to her house, however if it's anything like the Haynes manual for my GS I'll be taking the piss...
