CBF1000F (Mk.II) Front end strip and rebuild
« on: 11 April, 2018, 05:45:02 AM »
I recently needed to address a problem in the pilot box (I bet more than a few of you are wondering what that is) on my CBF and at the same time, replace my HIDs with regular halogen headlight bulbs ahead of this year's MOT (because they'll fail under the new rules), so this necessitated a front end strip down.
Taking it all apart was relatively pain free, however there are a couple of tips I wanted to pass on regarding the rebuild.
Since a picture's worth a thousand words, here's a link to the snapshots I took along the way, each accompanied with comment.

I thought the HID failure at MOT time only applied to cars

Possibly Alan, although I know I read somewhere that the proposed new MOT will find fault. Just can't find the article at the moment.
Most of the focus is on the rules applied to diesel cars, so it's possible any changes for bikes are not making the headlines.
(I've been wrong before. To err is human. lol)
