Received my Givi panniers yesterday from Motocard in Spain. £399 for boxes and holders. very happy with them lovely people at Motocard.
the biffer is now a wide ass old girl.
g/f says i need to go out and practice filtering through traffic to get an idea of the width. its near as dammit a metre wide at the rear now.
my old CBF 600 had the proper Honda luggage and didn't seem anywhere near as wide.
anyhoo. just waiting for my MRA x-creen to arrive and I'm all set for Stelvio in about 7 weeks with the lads

here's some photies






There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Unless you're planning to invest in the Givi version, you might want to consider getting a short length of 22mm pipe insulation foam, so you can make a backrest on that top box for your g/f.

Does the Givi screen make a big difference? Need some opinions before I part with too many spondulies!

front fender extender  3/5 could be longer but looks and functions ok
House hold bug screen over rad to stop bugs, dirt, small rocks  4/5  prevents clogging of and damage to rad fins
Rear carrier frame, Hondaline, 5/5  top notch accessory allows all sorts of carrier tops to be fastened securly to bike.
Cal Sci windshield 4/5  could be a bit better finished, some sharpish edges, but does a very good job of cutting out turbulance and protecting one from bugs and the elements when required
Air temperature thermometer, lab type, 4/5.  Bike should have had this as part of the digital read-outs available.  One of the more important pieces of info you may need on a long trip, or when you push the riding season envelope, as we might, in the north
Hondaline (Givi) panniers, 4/5, very nice fit and finish.  a bit finnicky to load, but they work well, fit securely, and look good.
I added a 12VDC power outlet to the front of the bike frame, just inside the fairing.  Very handy. 4/5

Leovince slipon 5/5 excellent sound
12v at my dashboard 5/5 so useful
Under fairing 4/5
Honda topbox+panniers 4/5 don't like the topbox that much
K&N airfilter 4/5

I've been trying to find another dashboard for my cbf, ideas where I can get one?
Also interested in getting knuckle deflectors and another saddle. I guess ebay is cheapest for this?

There are many aftermarket hand protectors mostly used for dirt bikes  Moose racing, Bark Busters, etc.  They are plenty tough.  Ensure you have enough handle bar space to mount the inner bracket.  I notice these bikes don't have a lot of room for accessories on the bars close to the controls.  Pete

This thread required a lot of maintenance to compile the entries so it hasn't been updated for a while.
That said, the results haven't changed dramatically since the last time I produced the stats:
https://www.cbf1000.com/index.php/topic,11600.msg149809.html#msg149809
Just make a quick review of subsequent postings to see what's new on the scene. I doubt you'll find too much to be honest.

A Power Commander is really the best thing to get for the Biffer.
The flat top in the middle of the register on an unmodded CBF1000F is really annoying.

I didn't see it in the chart though.
