Personally I have never replaced pads on that particular bike but if it is like most rear disk pads, should not be too bad. I just remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper to the frame. Lift the caliper off enough to slide the pads out. Get a small C-clamp or something so you can gently push the caliper piston back in. Then install the new pads and bolt the caliper back on. Be carefull when pressing the piston back in because is might cause your master cylinder to overflow a bit. Once the pads are on the bike, pump the brake a few times until the pedal gets firm. Should be no need to bleed the system as long as you don't open any brake lines.
Hope this helps!

Battery access


Battery is under the seat. There is little room for you to add a charger, as such, shy of getting such a charger recommended by your Honda shop designed for such.

It is probably better if you start your bike once each week and let it run. This will keep fresh gas in the carb and your battery charged up during these difficult months of winter.

The caliper is pushing more pressure to one piston. Try tearing the caliper apart and replacing the seals and cleaning it out. Changing the brake fluid while your at it wouldn't hurt.

Your bike should have 3 main wires in the rear even if they split to power 2 bulbs each.
1 for brake light
1 for night rear light
1 for ground.
Your trailer should have additionally 2 more for the turn signals.
