The best mod i can think of is a little extra training it makes your bike go that much better makes you more confident and its cheap  :047:

BMC air filter - 5/5
Rear hugger - 4/5 (keeps most of the grime off the shocks but sits a little too close to the tyre for my liking)
Ermax lower fairings - 4/5 (doesn't fit as nicely as it should, and it creates a buzz which I' still trying to eliminate)
Hepco & Becker 40l panniers - 4/5 (very useful, but makes filtering a pain)
SW Motech alu rack - 5/5 (a later addition which needed a little modification to get it to fit on top of the H&B frame)
Set of louder horns which I have forgotten the brand - 5/5 (would have fixed Hella Dual Tones but I couldn't find a suitable space for them. And I think all bikes should come with louder horns as standard)
Volt meter - 5/5
Honda main stand - 5/5
Motovation bar ends - 5/5
No matter how long or how far the ride, the destination is always home.

Hi all, just bought my cbf1000a6 at Christmas for my 70th present to myself! Can anyone suggest the best aftermarket cans for this bike? Glad to meet you all, safe riding, biscuits69

Hi Biscuit.
 :405:
What were your other 69 presents?
 :001:
Do a search on cans and you'll soon see a common flavour emerging.
LeoVince seem popular at the moment, but there're a few others to consider also.
Mike

Best in what way (e.g., weight saving, sound, looks)?

Well, got the extra day training as suggested here ... Great experience and 150 euro well spend.
Got a top sellerie seat with gel, this is also a 5/5. Very comfortable and better riding position for me on long trajects
