Time for a valve job on a 2007 Mk1
« on: 17 September, 2020, 08:47:35 PM »
Hi!

Reaching 31.000 miles, decided to check the valves and change plugs.

Valves are fine, no adjustment needed (never were adjusted since new).

Spark plugs are ok also, but i will replace them just for mind peace.

These are true machines that last when taken care of.

Regards!

Well done, pour yourself a brew. The ease at which the home mechanic can work on the CBF1000 without the need of any special workshop tools or plug in electrickery is a big plus to those of us allowed spanners.

Of interest NGK give a service life of 30,000 miles (48,000 Km) for their CR8EH-9 (nickel centre electrode, nickel ground electrode) spark plugs which are factory fitted and specified by Honda for the SC58 CBF 1000. If it is still on the original factory fitted plugs they are about due for a change. A popular alternative is NGK's CR8EHIX-9 (iridium centre electrode, nickel ground electrode) spark plug which NGK give a service life of 50,000 miles (80,000 Km).

Happy days
