You can use some of mine I've ended up with more than 10 when I thought about it.  :112: :062: :300:

Can you tell me how do you feel Hyperpro progressive springs?
I have to decide what kind of springs to mount, Hyperpro, mhlins or Mupo.
And have you used a particular oil in the fork?

I recommend the Hyperpro  :046:
The standard springs are too soft and the front just squishes under your weight. I think its set up for a 60kg rider.
With the Hyperpro kit you get a bottle of oil, it is the same as in the Honda manual for this bike and we used that. The damping is OK but sometimes I think we could have used the next grade up in viscosity. But its still a CBF and not a FireBlade.
The fitting instructions tell you to set the air gap smaller than standard. I think this makes all the difference.

Just a tangential thought, but Honda springs are actually not bad IMHO, but the fork oil is frequently left unchanged (the manual doesn’t mention a changing schedule). It made a huge difference to my Mk1 when I simply replaced the 4yr old oil (standard grade). It’s worth trying - it might save a heap of money.

I've just bought a small addition to the screen, I hope the details arent breaking any rules, but the sheer quality and builds of this is to be admired, I can honestly see years of use out of this it seems so well made, it arrived before it was supposed to and was well wrapped, also a bit cheaper than others of the same type.

Have you tried it out yet robbo? I replaced the bog screen for an MRA, (which was a definite improvement), and I've considered trying one of those spoilers a few times, more so for tedious blatting along the motorway, but have never took the plunge. Any good?  :084: :084:
