Ok, this is my first Honda, sounds like the pin locators are standard. Went for a 150km trail and fire road ride today and all the switch gear stayed in place so guess my tape method worked. On another note, if you need to adjust spring preload on the rear it's easiest to take the shock right out of the bike. This only requires removal of the top and bottom shock bolts and the rocker/frame pivot bolt. I tried the long punch and hammer method and only succeeded in mushrooming a couple adjuster notches in the lock ring. When it was out I had to use penetrating oils and a proper lock ring spanner which got severely bent in the process and needed straightening. Guess honda doesn't want us making suspension adjustments.
