thanks, but I have been applying petroleum jelly from the beginning. The GS-150 battery is 8AH, double or even more than any other bike battery, because of electric start. So the regular terminal connectors are not good enough for all types of weather. The cables are not quite long enough to easily put the battery on the foot-rest easily.
Some pictures that I took of the bike parts. The bike was purchased on 31st May, 2008, less than 10 months old.
Rubber cover of accelerator cable.
Rubber washer/damper for the headlight.
Silencer with rust on it.
Close-up of speedometer driver assembly in the front hub. Notice the condensation. I don't like it, as I cannot see it without taking off the wheel.
This is the chain cover, see the visible chain. I don't mind it because I can see it and I know I have to lube the chain more often than on fully covered chain covers.
