Hi Kamboskid. Lovely to hear from you & the lovely islands of Greece.I am an older man now and know that the really important thing is to enjoy your passion ,whatever that may be , for just about as long as you possibly can. The CBF 1000 is capable of doing pretty well all of the motorcycling you can imagine & then some!.Best Regards ,Old Sod .UK' :123:

Hi Incorrigble.

 Thank you for your kind words sir, I am an old sod too, I enjoy blasting about on the islands and the mainland of Greece, hopefully we may bump (not literally) into each other during the warmer months in 2020! Ride safe and far!

If you want to improve your engine,
get a power commander and get it proper mapped on a test bench.
You will hardly get more power, but it will run so much nicer.
Better response, the hick-up when driving slow in a low gear, or when slowly lowering speed will be gone.

A factory bike is set way to lean for environment purposes and so on.
It, however, created a bike that does not run as beautiful as it could.
When tapping E10 fuel, the bike will run less good on top of that, its bad habits will increase.

A power commander (with proper mapping) will cure that.
Even makes riding E10 possible without the negative effect on the behavior of your engine.

I don't want to advertise power commanders, but I am not aware of another device that can be mapped like this one.
If anyone knows other comparable devices, please post.
