Bike was promised to be delivered by Saturday, but because of more atrocities by the former, need to rework some more and is delayed. Indeed, most of the threads in the engine are damaged and need to rethread.

Just curious - why are you going to a dealership when there are good non dealer options available?
Never mind, saw you went to KR motors finally. I wonder when people go to dealerships when KR is available. My dad once took his bike to a dealership nearby after 20 years of going to KR (he was feeling too old to ride to KR) but the experience left such a bad taste that he continued to go back to KR.

You have my vote for KR - my Dad has been his customer since the late 80's until he had to give up riding very recently due to failing health. They took care of his first 2 bikes (RX100 and Crux). The third bike (SZ-RR) was sold in a few months of buying due to his health and never saw a workshop
KR was nice. He's just a kilometer or two from my home and it took 10 years to get to him.

A quick question, Is it possible to install CBR 650F front master cylinder that is lying around unused with me? I know new brake lever will be needed but will can it be done? Swapping stock MC with bigger MC? hoping it'd increase brake bite.

If the banjo bolt matches, it can be installed. There should be an obvious difference in stopping power. Even a steel braid hose swap makes day and night difference.

Disconnect front and rear connections one by one and see which one is the culprit.

Tried it. Normal only when both are disconnected.
Complete the connection with a piece of wire instead of the switch and check whether the lights are turning on. If it's working normal, connect the rear switch first and adjust the rear brake switch and check whether it's working normal. Rear ones tend to get stuck with adjustment is wrong.

Then disconnect it and remove the front switch from the lever and connect and check manually pressing. Light should turn off when switch is pressed. Usually a worn out lever or worn or stuck switch shaft tend to cause the malfunction.
