Mine needs replacing after a drop, is banana shape  :001:

How much of a job is it?

Thanks.
Howdy. Do you have it already? Should not be that expensive AND I don't want to make any promise here, but I might have a spare one if it helps... Want me to check?

A big plus for me with the 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. As Froggymanny says if you  haven't already, and you're allowed spanners you may want to download the Honda Workshop and Owners Manuals here.

Thanks :001: :001: :001: all, Iíve ordered a hugger as Iíve seen a build up of grime already. Other things on my list to add are a top box and USB outlet. Still early days but the Spring is coming fast and Im looking forward to getting out and about on her .

Forgot to mention this: when I joined I was greeted by Art - a guru here whose posts you will quickly come across. One valuable thing he shared immediately with me was this:

Hello Rob and welcome indeed!
I absolutely concur with Mark although my experience with the CBF is much closer to yours - I joined recently  :001:
My POV: having owned a Hornet (600) about 10 years ago and my last bike being a CTX1300, I initially felt like the CBF was the exact quintessential of these two. But as I'm gaining confidence with it I'm starting to revive sensations darn close to what I had with my Hornet... (better watch those point on my license again!)

General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: Radiator leak

i would like to thank you both for the reply, big thumbs up, well panic must have set in, i have never experienced a bike steaming up so much in my life, it was like a mobile sauna, i also put the bike on the side stand and the water run down the hose from  the rad, apparently this is normal for cbf 1000 when ridden in the rain, so its time for a fender extension and some sort of diversion for faring water build up, its a slite on Hondas part, once again thanks guys, ride safe.

Hi Rob
i bought my mk1 after selling a blackbird with the intention of keeping it a year, that was in 2014.
I've looked at everything to replace mine but keep coming back to the same point, what do i want that the CBF doesnt do? six trips around spain and portugal and never missed a beat, comfortable one or two up, 300 miles no problem, enough power (for me) cheapish to look after, especially if you do most of the jobs yourself. There's loads of info on here.
