Bike's ready.

  1. New tires
  2. Cleaned and lubed buttons on both brake rotors on the front wheel.
  3. Installed new chain and front + back sprockets.
  4. Flushed both front and rear brakes with fresh DOT4.

Waiting for the weather to cool a bit.

What chain kit did you get and tool? How did you lube the buttons. And what tyres?

Have the best day you can!

Chain and sprockets:
D.I.D Motorcycle Chain - 530vx X 106
JT Sprockets Steel Front Sprocket - 18T
JT Sprockets Steel Rear Sprocket - 42T

Chain breaking & riveting tool:
Motion Pro PBR

Front brake rotor buttons:
After washing each of the buttons with brake cleaner and rotating it around with a bolt & nut combo, I used a very small drop of dry chain lube for each of the buttons to make sure that centrifugal force doesn't flings it into the working part of the rotors and contaminate the pads.

Tires:
Metzeler Roadtec 01
