I've also been learning everything with this bike. There is a LOT of unwritten knowledge. If you're working on a bike that has not been maintained every year before you, prepare for some very tough screws. Tightening is a skill you should learn and it's usually painless. Loosening a screw can be a nightmare.

One example, the front brake reservoir cover has two JIS screws (not Philips..), if nobody touches them for 11 years they can require a good amount of torque. If you don't have a good fit for the screwdriver, it's very easy to strip the screw. I managed to do it with a flat screwdriver and I pushed on it hard. An impact screwdriver can do the job. In general, there is always a dedicated tool that nobody buys haha.

Good luck with the maintenance and please ask questions on the forum. I'm almost up to date on my 24000km service and I'm trying to take a lot of notes.
