Hello to all!

I'm Italian and a new member. I just bought from few weeks my second-hand Honda CBF 1000 year 2009.

I'm so happy of the bike, powerful but not crazy, comfortable and feel very safe even riding fast.

Hope to share with you good things about the bike and also problems!

If anyone from Italy in Milano city I'm glad to know you also face to face, glad to be part of this network to talk with people around the world!

General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: Valve clearances wear

If you remove the crankcase vent, displace the thermostat and coil packs then remove the pair control valve and its plumbing access is fine and its a simple job to pull the caps. Its all about making room, if you try cutting corners and don't make room it could all end in tears.

If there is a secret it can be found in a can of maintenance spray (Triple QX, GT85 or if you must the reassuringly expensive WD40) lift the boot flange and using the supplied straw direct the spray down the sides of the spark plug wells, leave to penetrate then ease the caps from the spark plug wells by means of a rotary twisting motion, a quarter turn clockwise and a quarter turn anti-clockwise as you pull and they'll pull out easily.

Top tip - When re-fitting the spark plug caps give the outside a goodly smear of red rubber grease to keep them free.

The old No3 spark plug cap myth. It just doesn't happen, at least not to folk allowed spanners.

It won't be the valve timing out because you checked that before buttoning it all up, didn't you? Besides if the valve timing is out, even by one tooth of the timing chain, it wouldn't start'.

How many miles has it done and what have you touched since the 22nd January valve clearance adjustment?

Recheck everything you displaced under the tank to get the camshaft cover off, I'd be looking for a vacuum leak.

Did you replace the spark plugs and with what specification plug?
