    Advice for multiple mods...

    Hi There - I just purchased a 2014 CB1000R and was looking for the following:
    1) Center Stand {Searched the internet but haven't found anything. I know they are uncool but are they also rare }
    2) Rear View Mirrors (bar-end or handlebar)
    3) Turn Signals (LEDs or Clear Standard)
    4) Fluid Tanks (Clutch and Front/Rear Brake)

    Appreciate suggestions and advice? Thank you!

    Hi there Stealth congats on the new bike, hope you love it as much as we all do!
    glad to help you out'

    1) there is no centre stand from Honda and no aftermarket stand that I know of, so you probably wont be getting one!
    2) there are loads of mirrors try a search Rizoma for example do several types and there are others.
    3) again there are plenty, try Rizoma again, there are loads online.
    4) Rizoma do nice ones I think there maybe others

    good luck in your search and enjoy your new ride, try searching the forum also as there is so much info there

    Thank you, everyone for taking the time to write a welcome note. Feels great to be part of the CB community Hopefully our paths will cross sometime in future. If ever you are in Seattle, send me a note and it'll be great to put faces to names. Till then, ride safe!

    2. CRG hindsight lanesplit mirrors currently adorn the ends of my handlebars. LOVE them! They are mounted to Motovation weighted bar ends.
    3. Tons of LED options out there. For clear stock like the Euro CBs, use CBR lenses. That's what I ended up doing.
    4. Rizoma seems to be the standard. I'm perfectly happy with the stock ones.

    Thank you, Sir. I will certainly look up Rizoma and have been searching the threads for relevant information as well.

    I heavily modded my CB and that's pretty much a list of the things I didn't change !

    I like the fluid tanks - MotoGP style ! Although I changed the rear pot for a slimline alloy item that bolted straight to the rear master cylinder (no tube / no pot).

    As posted there is no centre stand although for home maintenance the Abba Stand allows all the access a centre stand would offer (check out the Abba Stand threads on the forum)
