Hi Mike,
I think they are seriously over priced, also if you can see it you can see what`s going on,mind you if me shock goes rusty i may buy one before i sell it  :001:, the shocktube only does a small part of a worrying area, I keep the area well coated with ACF50,seems to work well despite a poor hugger :028:

I think you missed the point of the chart, Its to show WHO`s i.e. MAKERS , parts are good both in value and usage, if your part is unknown what good is that to the chart  :192:

java, that's some serious investment in extras my friend. I'm thinking a sophisticated alarm system as well as an industrial padlock and chain are in order ...
(worth looking at, if you find yourself in the UK - http://www.almax-security-chains.co.uk/index.asp?pg=11 )
For example, in UK, I'd (maybe we'd) expect to pay about 10 max for a power socket. I see that Kuryakyn is listed at $80 - just for a power point ! and where did you find to locate air-horns?
Any photos of your bike you can post to the site - including your trailer rig please?

Hi Mike

Yes Mike, I put some money back on my bike, but so far I'm happy with the CBF and planning to keep the bike, even as a second motorcycle for a while. Really expensive things as a motorcycle trailer I'll be able to attach it to another motorcycle if I want to do that in the future.
The Fiamm air horns I got them from a local hardware store. They cost me $29.99.
On the forum I have a few posting of my motorcycle and trailer. You can take a look of some of my pictures here:

DATA SO FAR
<see later posting for current data>

I've trimmed the pie chart to exclude tyres (consumables) and items for which there is only one hit (refer to the PDF file for single hit items).

NB: If your id appears in the table, it's because I'd like some more information from you reference your bike, the part manufacturer if possible and/or the rating you'd give the accessory.
Thanks.
Mike
