Thank you! Unfortunately haven't got the time.
I'm renovating my appartment and garage is full of materials.

You, sir, must be cut from the same cloth as I am. :)

After so long period of time I haven`t wrote anything on this thread, I want to update it little bit.
I returned my gloves Held Toni back to the seller, hoping for a fear refund... and bought new ones. This time I kind-a bought the right size.
My new gloves: Held Bolt, size 11 (XXL):

I also bought some fairing stainless steal bolts from ebay UK and some other parts from Aliexpress, like smartphone charger for bike (it`ll go on contact), smartphone motorcycle holder (dedicated for Samsung S7, as I happen to have it and it is water proof), some spring band clips for fuel hoses, some electrical connectors same model as on the bike (it is so hard to find those in these parts of the world - at Louis are expensive as gold) and some carburetor needle brushes. For the time being, I am still occupied with renovation so no time for bike. I suppose that I`ll have a quiet winter in front of me with plenty of time.

I also made an automatic chain oiler using an petrol electrovalve which will be connected to power thru contact. For container I used a fluid oil bottle from Lada. In order to avoid continuous oil flow, I could be using a regulatory valve, but preferred to buy an electronic timer. But I think that the valve should be fine.
