Items Wanted / Mk2 aftermarket levers
« Last post by FrasMac on 10 June, 2021, 08:32:33 AM »
Hi, I'm looking for some aftermarket dog-leg type levers for my Mk2. Have a notion for black or red to match the bike (but would settle for bare alloy) if anyone has any for sale or knows where I might get them. Any that I see on the web are either too cheap to trust or too dear to afford. Thanks in advance!

There's a little more to it than that. To properly test the charging system you need to take two readings, one at 1,200 RPM and another at 5,000 RPM. As per the Honda specification expect greater than 13.2v at 1,200 RPM and less than 15.5v at 5,000 RPM.

Thank you very much. So mine is looks good, because it is 13,7 V on idle when I measure it on the battery terminals.

Iím running a Dunlop Road Smart 3 on the front and a Michelin Pilot Road 2 on the rear. I donít have any issues at all. I canít see a problem using different generation tyres front and rear.

Tyres and Wheels / Michelin Pilot Road 5 in Front and 4 at the Rear
« Last post by Fernie 66 on 08 June, 2021, 07:46:01 PM »
I currently have Road 4s front and back, but  have to replace the front as its worn to the "tire wear indicators".  The rear still has plenty of thread. 
My question is, should I replace the front with the newer generation Road 5, and eventually do the same with the rear when it's time, or stay with the Road 4 all around.
Is there a problem with mixing the two generations of the same brand/model of tire. 

I'd like to stay with the Michelins as I've had very good experience with them. 

Many thanks for your help.

Mr longside,

I just bought one off wemoto,£16.93 including postage, obviously not a genuine Honda but really good quality,good to get one to get you on the road until a genuine Honda one turns up if you want a genuine one 👍

I've just fitted an Arrow to my cbf1000fa. I have to say, I don't know whether to be happy or disappointed. Yes it's given it more character (noise), and it seems to have more bottom end grunt but it's lost that silky smoothness at about 2500-3500rpm  that I loved so much about the bike. Now it rides just like any other inline four. It used to glide nicely at low revs. I don't know how to feel about it to be honest.
The screen was a straight fit onto the CBF1000 with no rework needed.
It was fitted a long time ago so can't help with any of the details - sorry.
It's about 5" higher and a bit wider at the top than the standard screen it replaced. It's just about perfect for me, but screens are funny things - you will either love it or hate it.
