The CBF 1000 is an excellent choice for a Sports Tourer that ticks many boxes in its class. A big plus for me is the ease in which it can be serviced and maintained at home, by the home mechanic, without the need of any special tools or diagnostic equipment. If you haven't already you can download the Honda Workshop and Owners Manuals here.

One quick about model type, due to manuals.
My insurance quotes my Model as an "F" by number plate. But manuals suggest otherwise??

If it's an '07 non Abs, what is it? Thanks

A CBF1000A - it'll have a silver engine and twin exhausts from new.
Your logbook should show the correct designations.
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.

Your logbook should show the correct designations.

...and black calipers, the ABS model has gold calipers, so just 'CBF1000-7' or 'SC58 CBF1000-7' with no 'A' suffix.

The V5 should show

Section 4 D.3 Model = 'CBF 1000-7'
Section 4E VIN/Chassis/Frame No = 'ZDCSC58B07F0*****' (the 4th to 7th digits = Honda model number, the 10th digit = year of manufacture/assembly)

Section P.5 Engine number 'SC57E30*****' (the first 5 digits = variant of Fireblade engine)
