Looking for a mk2 biffer
on: 04 February, 2021, 06:57:57 PM
As above folks, would prefer an fa-c, the newer the better (touring plans afoot....hopefully?)

<20k miles.  Well looked after.  Deffo not a project that has seen winter use, plenty of those in dealers!

So if you think you may have what I,m looking for, just let me know.

Cheers Adrian

Good luck on finding a CBF without corrosion on the swing arm, if you do the rest of it will tick all your boxes.

Thanks for that Art.

Yes, I  donít think big H build quality the last 10/15 years has been great, but still better than some.
 
Iím just trying to avoid those with
salt staining on the fasteners, fittings and banjos etc. That would just create havoc with my shiney OCD 😂

Best not let you to close to my teenager of a CBF1000.

The main areas of corrosion you need to check on the CBF1000 are the radiator cooling fan motor and bracket, swing arm, centre stand, side stand, fairing stays and the very obvious front fork sliders. I've brush painted all those areas on mine, bar the fork sliders, with several coats of brush on smooth satin black Hammerite.
