    Top Ten Mods & Accessories

    Anyone want to start the ball rolling on this:
    I'll tabulate the incoming data.
    All I need to know is the bike model and the description and make of the option fitted (e.g. CBF1000FA:hugger:Red Fox).
    If the item turned out to be a load of rubbish, please state Bad Buy (see below)
    Table will be sorted on popularity.
    Items can cover anything fitted permanently or semi-permanently to the bike (not clothing please).
    Let's see how this goes.... :465:


    Ok - Thanks for the early feedback.
    As a result, I'm expanding this a little.

    I would ask that you rate the bits you've fitted as follows:

    RATING (and typical technical description)
    1 = What a load of *!?*
    2 = Naff, generally disappointed.
    3 = OK, but nothing to write home about.
    4 = Good - would recommend to a mate.
    5 = Excellent, bees knees, highly recommended.

    (and don't forget to give the manufacturer please).

    I have a Givi top box, rear hugger, fenda extenda. All good. :028:
    Just got a givi screen, but not fitted yet so can't really say how good it is. :027:
    Tyres - Pilot Sport 2's. Excellent :152:
    Hein Gericke magnetic mini tank bag with sat nav holder is a bit fiddly and a hassle to carry around with you. Better of with a sat nav bracket and ditch the tank bag for a top box.

    mk 2.
    full luggage (is that 3?) - Honda stuff. Not as big as Givi but acceptable for 2 weeks holiday. 4 out of 5.
    crash protectors. R&G. Essential. 5 out of 5.
    heated grips. Oxford Sports. 4 out of 5.
    Autocom. 5 out of 5.
    satnav. Garmin Zumo 550. 4 out of 5.
    mra screen. 4 out of 5.

    that's about it. I don't think a hugger is that essential. Mine is a Skidmarx - 4 out of 5 (it's white, the worst colour).

    Honda genuine hugger 1/5 rubbish, too short, stops nothing and encourages chain wash.
