CBF 1000 headlught
« on: 12 September, 2019, 10:16:01 AM »
 :172: Hola,
I'm going to buy a 2011 onwards bike and import it to Spain.
My question is ..are the headlights flat beam,symmetrical or dip to the left? No UK dealer can answer my question.
Going back to Honda from 4 years of Yamahas. Bikes are far more expensive here in Spain and it's an expensive,timeconsuming and stupid system to change ownership.
Many thanks ,
Jon future Honda owner.

TBH the single-bulb dipped headlight is not very good. I don't think you'll be dazzling many drivers with it even if it does tilt the wrong way.
Designed in Japan, assembled in Italy, fiddled with in Britain

Yep, but it needs to be correct otherwise it wont pass the Spanish ITV (MOT).

Thanks for replies. They are very strict on the ITV .How w can i tell if the beam is flat/symmetrical?
When did the mark 2 come in ? Some of my mates have had to change theirs BMW 1200 RT being the most expensive  and difficult to source. Pan European  2004 had to be changed.
Why dont dealers and Honda UK know  this information?
Thanks all.

My MK2 has a flat beam.

MK2 started in 2010 but there was an overlap with the MK 1.
