Thanks for the input/advice on the rear racks, and the offer on a windshield.

If I can't get my hands on the original I may touch base to explore shipping costs!

First - "heated grips and handguards came in handy": I want to savor thais for a minute... smoooooth  :001:
More seriously:
- factory windshield: got a spare one in case the promised one doesn't turn up but the shipping costs from France might just nullify this option. But if you happen to travel to France this summer...
- luggage deck/frame of whatever name that has in English: if I'm not mistaken all can be done from the outside of the bike - no need to touch the side cowls. One thing though, these parts tend to stay untouched for a very long time on the bike so be gentle with your first attempts to loosen the bolts.. (WD40 and time are your best friends and make sure your wrench hugs the sides (external or inner, can't remember) of the bolts so you don't end up ruining your bolt or your tool.
Not sure about what follows: once you remove the frame you might end up with small spare parts like spacers and brackets - save that in a pannier or the top box for example. Also, not sure if you can reset the original bolts/screws back into place or if you will need to purchase/recover some shorter ones.
My penny!

Hello CBNewF,
A big :401: to the forum - especially to a fellow user of the metric system  :007:
Always nice to see a proper self-introduction and with beautiful pics - cherry on the cake - thank you for that.
I noticed you're combining heated grips with wind deflectors - you should be comfy :001: although on second thought, if you ride during winters, I wouldn't be surprised if this happens to be a must in your region... this and the unusually large windshield may actually be rather sensible.
One thing with your model that I like (and don't have on my 2014, later model) is the dual exhaust - really adds a nice touch.
Enjoy your new partner in crime; looking forward to hearing from you!

It was 6C while I was riding yesterday evening, so the heated grips and handguards definitely came in handy.

I'm not a fan of the large windshield and am hoping the owner finds the original which they think is at their cottage. Luckily I know them personally so I can easily follow up on it.

My plan from here is to give it a good cleaning, remove all the added stickers on the fairings, and hopefully go back to the stock windshield.

I may remove all the brackets for the luggage as I have the grab handles I can install along with a rear seat cowl to give it a nicer look.

Is it much work to remove/install the brackets for the luggage? I prefer the look without that stuff for commuting and joy rides, but want to take advantage of the luggage for touring. Thoughts on this?

Hi everyone
Thanks Art for your detailed response.
Reminds me of a similar bit I had on my 2013 Hornet but then it leads to one more question: this strap doesn't belong on the MkII models of our beefers, correct ? I think I would have noticed it on mine by now...
Cheers

Correct... Honda never supplied their 'stopper cable' with the later SC64 face lift model. I don't know why, next time you're in there check and see if there is provision to bolt one on.
