Hi all,

Thanks for the forum. Shortly buying my CBF1000, hopefully in the next week after 3months of deciding which bike to buy. Looked at VFR's Vstroms etc, I'm short at 5' 8 so both feet down is important to me, 63 so i ache in all the usual places and I've lost my mad gene. CBF seemed super comfortable, pulled right through and nice and easy for my inexperience.
Here's hoping, just got to buy the right bike now,

Not necessarily so because you don't know what the clearances were on day one when it left the factory

Is it possible to make the instrument lights a bit brighter? The lighting on mine is properly faint.

I've had my 2009 mk 1 since new and checked the valves at 33,000. All OK though the clearances on the exhaust valves show they will probably need re-shimming before the inlets.

Valve clearances, if there is no untoward ticking or rattling from the camshaft cover, a mechanics stethoscope maybe your best friend here. I left my valve clearances until 48,000 miles before I took the feeler gauges to them.


48k miles seems rather a lot. What were the measured clearances at that point? My Mk2 has done 19k miles (mostly motorway riding) and I have been wondering whether I could run it to 24k before getting them checked.

 :401: This forum is a wealth of information and is a very friendly place with 'willing experts' to answer every imaginable question. Of course you will know about THE question regarding stators...... :164: But don't worry it may never happen, it never did to me after 7 years riding :015:

Afternoon all - I'm Mark from Leicestershire and I've just bought (about 3 hours ago!) a 2008 CBF1000. Formally a VFR750 rider, looking now for a more long distance machine for touring and quick flits to Norfolk, Wales etc.

I'm open to any hints, tips and suggestions regarding my new steed.

Thank you!!
