    I know what you mean, Honda could if they put a bit more development into the CB1000R. I think the faired version looks sweet (no surprise there :)) and generally it gets positive comments, but those...

    Honestly, it's all the good things about the CB with a bit extra on top. Riding position is very similar, if not a bit more relaxed (for me at least). The sound is amazing in stock form, it's loud...

    Advanced riding tuition will help for sure. Not sure what the offerings are in Canada, but I personally would recommend something based around road riding rather than a race school as the skills...

    Apologies if I've read this wrong, but looking at your recent posts, it seems like there is a bit more to this than just the bike. You've wanted to upgrade the brakes, said that maybe you should be...

    I believe lack of coolant, air lock or failed water pump could all cause incorrect temp readings. Would probably be worth giving the cooling system a quick once over to be sure all is well.

    Less than half price, bargain, someone should take your hand off at that price!! No way I would sell mine for that :-)

    Nope, keep unscrewing the sensor out of its boss with the other end still connected and you're more than likely to twist the wires off :(

    Yep, but it's easier on an Abba stand with the rear wheel removed. The hardest part is disconnecting the O2 sensor, if you've got the hands of a child and have an ability to work one handed and...

    It's not a direct replacement, you will need the chrome ring and under panel too.

    Don't misunderstand me, the CB is a fantastic bike and I loved owning and riding it. The new colours are, IMO, the best of any of the model years and it still has appeal to the new customer, but...

    It's not all about power and aids, but manufacturers should at least make some progress. 4 years ago I looked at a Z1000 and the CB. I wasn't comfortable on the zed so the CB was the one for me. ...

    Many have complained about the 'surging' at constant RPM. Trying to keep at 30mph seemed to be particularly difficult for my bike in it's stock setup. From stock I fitted the G&G with decat and the...

    Yep, that's what I did, moved the OE sensor from my cat to the decat. Only removed the sensor (and fitted an O2 eliminator plug to keep the EML off) when I fitted the PCV.

    I'd certainly think about returning to the CB in a couple of years if they do update it. I like the 2015 colours, but underneath it hasn't changed in 7 years.

    Looks much better with the rear pegs removed IMO. There is an area left unpainted around the fixing, so you need something 25mm in diameter to cover almost all of the unpainted area.

    Most either...
