Honda charging system failures are, in reality, no worse than other motorcycle manufacture, any issues you've heard of are mostly myths perpetuated by the techno savvy challenged. When you say "no charging issues at the mo" have you actually tested the charging system with a multimeter? I find it good practice to test the battery, stator and regulator using a multimeter and noting the various readouts as a starting point for future reference, from there on I test the battery and charging system output every 4,000 miles, noting the readouts, date and mileage for forward and backward comparisons.

A big plus in owning a CBF1000 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 youíre allowed spanners and you haven't already, you may want to download the Honda Workshop and Owners Manuals here.

 :405:Some MK1 owners did have a problem with stators burning out, perhaps the only 'stain' on a fantastically reliable bike. The MK2 was modified and failures are few and far between.

Enjoy it and don't worry! :028:

(I had a MK1 for 7 years and covered a fair mileage and never had any problem, although for a tour of Europe and the Baltic countries with a group where there were three Mk1s I did take a spare rotor, and it was needed for one of the bikes. But in this country I wouldn't worry especially if I had a Mk2.) :152:
