Here is my summary of mods and ratings:

MRA screen                4/5   Still needs a bit of tweaking on the angle. Better than the original screen.
Garmin 340 Sat Nav    5/5   Wouldn't leave home without it
Bagster seat               4/5   A bit better than original seat. Passenger seat much better than original, hence the 4/5
Michelin PR 4's            5/5   Second set. Works well for the bike. The last set did just over 10k miles
29L luggage                5/5   Bought second hand. Essential for travel. Waterproof. Versatile - use top box only in town
Leo Vince Carbon         5/5   Lighter muffler, much better sound, looks better


Once I have heated grips and wind deflectors the set-up will be complete.

2016 CBF 1000 GT FAC

Honda luggage - 5/5 but pricey
Honda grips 5/5. 3 settings
Tom Tom GPS 4/5.
Cheapo 15, Chinese, 20mm mirror extenders off Ebay 6/5. Clear rear view now.
17 t sprocket 5/5. Excellent value. Good improvement (in my opinion)
Tap washer screen conversion! 3/5 (see other posts)
Powerbronze hugger 4/5. had to make it fit!
Powerbronze fenda extender - 5/5. Glued on with Gorilla glue - no unsightly rusty screws.
Carbon look fork protectors 7 off Ebay 6/5. Look good and serve purpose.
Roll back the handlebars nearer to rider. 4/5
That's it, for now..............

Mk1 2006.

Bar raisers ,Fleabay 20 approx
Large touring screen 70 approx
Screen adjustable brackets, Fleabay 60

Adjustable brackets and large touring screen invaluable (only problem is in heavy rain it comes under screen and blows directly onto visor.

Hi Ranger,

Have you got a link for the bar risers please. Cannot find them on Ebay. Take it you did not have problems with the cables etc? Is it a worthwhile modification?
