  :002: Yes, it is a definate improvement but I'd like the front mudguard and bellypan to be white to match the rest of the bike. Personal choice though. I'm not sure about the screen,  :084:looks too tall in the photo but again, it's a personal choice thing.

I might have gone with white IF it had been the Pearl Cool White from Honda, but since it was just regular gloss white, I couldn't live with the mismatch, hence opting for the carbon effect.

I thought the belly pan in white (as seen on my bike in the Powerbronze pic on their website only emphasised the lap joint between the left and right sections: http://www.powerbronze.co.uk/5359344/818263/---HONDA-CBF1000FAA-FAB-10-11.model ).

I've just dropped my bike in at the dealers so they can sort the 2500rpm buzz from the upper fairing, however once I've got it back, I'll take a couple of side-on pics of the bike plus rider so you can see the fairing in proportion to the whole.
I don't think the Mk.II screen is as raked as that on the Mk.I, but I'd need to see the two bikes side by side to confirm that.

Note that in the photo it's on its highest position, it will adjust downwards a fair distance.

I think the black mudguard looks great. It blends in well with the black panel that runs down the centre of the CBF's nose.

I just got a PB belly pan but after looking at it on the bike I don't think I will keep it. Looks too aftermarket. Also worried about it shaking loose while under way.
