+1 On the gearing for an increase in fuel economy. The question is 17 tooth (+6.3%) for the front or 41 tooth (+4.9%) for the rear. I started out looking for +5% so I'm probably going with the 41 tooth rear at the next tyre change, two birds with one stone while the wheel is off.

Hi and welcome to the site.  :028:
I fitted a 17 tooth front sprocket on to my 07 plate bike, it dosn't make a huge difference to acceleration, brings the cruising revs down a few hundred RPM at motorway speeds and when filling up I am usually using a litre less fuel per tank than my friends 08 bike over the same route and at the same speeds on a long run. Might be something for you to think about.

Hi all,
Just bought a used 2009 CBF1000A with only 15K on the clock and am very pleased with it.
Wish the gearing was a little taller but the bike feels like it has legs for days, so it's not a
big issue.  Fuel range could be a little better too, but what do you expect with 4 mouths at
998cc to feed.
Found this site while searching for info on the Honda,  so any advice on the bike is appreciated.

I use a Roadhawk Moto on my Shoie Neotech and it works great.

Dock - I'm glad you got some use out of it - in hindsight, it was a better bike than my red one!!!!

I don't suppose they are generic/standard holders, I see on the web some with two screws diagonally apart (look like small machine screws) that hold the whole bulb holder in place - on those the clip looks to be retained by a pin but I can't quite see.

Go with removing another screw and find a match.

Gotcha - You mean the screw that holds the small metal plate that forms a hinge to secure the retaining clip.

Have a good look around inside the headlamp shell, if the rubber shroud (dust cover) was fitted correctly there shouldn't be enough room for the screw to go AWOL. If you can't find it I think its just a self tapper freely available from your local motor factor (Halfords if you must). You could remove the screw securing the main beam clip and take that along for comparison.
The screws Iím on about hold either side of the retaining clip
I donít think they are meant to come out while you change the bulb
You just press in on the retainer clip and you then can free the bulb
Yes I removed the side fairing but I see that a small scre is also missing which holds the retaining clip
Where can I find the correct screw for this it is not in the diagram

You'll have to expand, use the fiche drawings to help i.e. and see if the part you are thinking off is on that page, parts 8-11 look to be available from Honda.  I can't imagine any bulb-clip retaining screw (my H7s' clips are just awkward pita wire clips that secure to the shell).

Assuming you have a 1000A (other pages on that site cover most others).
Did you remove the fairing for the dipped bulb??  Surely your hands reach.
