    Mark,
    Thanks for the direction. As a novice maintenance guy, is doing the inspection you mentioned, minus the cam chain tensor part, on the easier side? And if there is more than I can chew off, is there a resource in this forum for mechanics in the Portland, Oregon area that may be a better resource than the Honda dealership?

    Thanks much
    John

    You don't have to do anything with the tensioner unless you're removing the cams. For right now, just pull the cover. Everything you'll need to look at will be visible.

    If you had the cover off before, this will be a repeat of that job.

    Mark,
    Thank you for the guidance...This will be my first time working on the bike mechanically. It may be slower but I am up for avoiding the Honda Dealership if possible.

    Ah, okay. Some questions to figure out where to go next:

    Are you reasonably handy with a wrench? (Have you done this sort of thing before on other bikes or your car?)
    How are you fixed for tools?
    Do you have torque wrench(es) and metric sockets?
    Do you have a service manual?
    Are you comfortable removing the fairing?


    I have access to a videoconferencing service, so if you have a laptop/tablet/smartphone, good Internet access and don't mind installing the app, I could give you a hand with the inspection.
