Good job (as they say in 'meurica). 
Added points for showing the stud? worn down - so this isn't electrical (switch) failure but wear/tollerance (mechanical).  Doesn't help but of interest.

 Hi Guys,

  Thanks for the replies glad to see other CBF riders out there but not seen any others in Greece yet. took it out today for its first days ride with her indoors on the back, just had a short run as her boots fell apart so we had to go back after 50 kms and then we got sidetracked and that was that for today at least.

 Really impressed how well it pulls up hills even in 5th from 2000rpm and it feels pretty smooth and very manageable, have to keep reminding myself its a thou motor coz it feels smaller than my previous mount.

 Now looking to fit some extra lights and get them fitted when the touring bags and top box arrives from Athens. thinking also of getting some LOUDER pipes, its too damn quiet! Any suggestions which can ends to go for?

  thanks in advance.

The job is done and it's so easy. 20-30 mins tops and easier than changing a headlight bulb (I always have trouble getting the rubber cover back in place properly.

All on the r/h side.
Slacken the exhaust to hanger bolt, remove the side panel (1 bolt), remove the 2 hanger bolts, remove the 3 nuts in the plate which the foot rest bolts to (suspension and engine mounts I think). Remove plate, move some wires, remove old switch, insert new, reconnect, put all the rest back an re-torque. Job done, time for a cup of tea.

I've attached a file showing the bolts to remove etc.

Thinking the unthinkable and might have to let my bike go to make garage space but not sure of its value

2016 GT model with all the bells and whistles, heated grips, colour coded top box and panniers, sat nav ext. Exquisite red colour and only  5,600 mainly dry miles. I am second owner and full service history.

Superb pampered condition. No photos at moment as still in hibernation in dehumidified garage.

Thoughts on value would be welcomed
You can measure stator resistance between each output and ground, there shoud be no continuity, and between each coil, there should be very small resistance 1-Ohm or there about.
You can check bridge rectifier by measuring in diode mode between each phase of input and output it shoud conduct one way and not backwards. Check between each phase input and positive output, and negative output.
Thanks Alexg for your reply but the bike will not crank - l understand that l can test the battery once it has started.

l will go and buy a new battery today and hope that will solve the problem = if not l will have a spare battery.

Hi. If you open Sheds link
and then click on the last link (4th) on that page - CBF1000FA Owners Manual.pdf, it will open up the MK2 manual.
