Yes thank you, the bike appears to be in good condition.
I took the side panels and seat off today to clean thoroughly everywhere and then saw that the air filter is quite dirty, so I ordered air and oil filter and will do an oil change tomorrow when the parts arrive from Gauteng.

Have you ordered from Honda??
I still need to have a good look at mine this weekend. The one thing that appears to be an anomaly is the spark plug. Seems to be a special plug and from what i've googled its not so easy to get to without the Honda sparkplug spanner....not sure.

Yes, I ordered OEM from our local Honda dealer.
They do not keep a lot of stock, so they place the order with the supplier in Gauteng (before 12 o'clock) and the requested parts are couriered here by the next day.
Oil filter, air filter, gasket, sump crush washer came to R940.00
Oil I will get at Autozone or Makro tomorrow
I am not going to replace the spark plug now, as the bike only has 5680km on the odo

I read that it is an Iridium spark plug - NGK: SIMR8A9 so yes, it will be expensive but it should last much longer than a normal spark plug (the manual states it must be replaced at the 48000km service)   :thumleft:

Congrats, only thing I did not like on my Rally. You have to buy a new filter each service. I washable foam jobbie like on the DRZ would have been much better.

Yes, I noticed the filter is pre-oiled so it is not possible to blow the dust out with a bit of air.  :lol8:
It is also quite pricy at R670.00 but I will change it whenever necessary to keep the engine breathing easily.

It's not actually oiled, it's dry when new.
