Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Re: good old reg/rec and stator

You say the last one only lasted two years - but how many miles did it do ?  (and which brand?).

If consistantly running hot (or used in very hot climates), have you considered different (higher performance) oils and to change it more frequently ?

Here in the UK I've always used ElectroSport from M&P

Hi,

 On the second replacement of my stator, to be fair they were both reconditioned ones and only lasted 2 years, in Greece I reckon the temperature plays a significant role, anyway looking for a decent replacement that will not bankrupt me, any ıdeas or suggestions?

This will be my wife's first bike. It is the RS version of the Shadows, so smaller and lighter.
Not many twisties here on the prairies. Thinking one day of a motorcycle road trip to Banff and the Okanagan.

Maybe throw some soft luggage on for trips and will make a rack for a tail bag.  Heated grips on the way too. Nice to keep the Shadow and I'm sure you're wife will love it.  I trust she's ridden something before??? Maybe trail bike ect... My wife learned on a trail bike and graduated to the Shadow and eventually to a crf230l but now quite content to ride pillion occasionally.
Hope you're able to find some corners around Winnipeg to enjoy the new bike.  Amazing what fun can be had in the twisties with a proper sporting bike like the cbf1000.

I'm wrong, I do recall seeing it on Kijiji. Beautiful looking bike with low km. Will you throw some luggage on it?

Side note I'm keeping my Shadow RS for my wife who I've convinced to get her licence. Also, not sure I can bear to part with that little Shadow, I love the looks and it's a great little bike.

Hey @ithappens, good to hear from another Canuck. I've been monitoring Kijiji for the last few months and haven't seen CBF1000 for sale in BC. I bought mine from Calgary and am arranging shipping.
You will definitely be riding much sooner than me!

Hi Ed. Like you I just purchased a 2008. Picking up on Tuesday as the weather on the West coast is definitely warmer than Winterpeg right now 😁. I test drove it last Thursday on a foggy cool day and was very impressed with low speed maneuvers and power. I'm much shorter than you at 5'6" with 29" inseam and definitely didn't find it top heavy.  For reference I just sold a 950 vstar that I only had for a year and sold my Valkyrie last year after 20+years (mistake). Also ride a lowered crf450l and have had some FAST racing school training  (Shannonville Ontario) which gave me the sport bike itch 😅.
I'm sure coming from a 750 Shadow (wife had one years ago) you'll love it as will I.  Good luck!
