No doesn't help at all because of all those other words I wrote :-(I tried the BF38 but it looked bad. I searched the CB1000R NSC part list for the the part number of the filler cap then found that the new CB650 and CBR1000RR had the same part number for the filler cap. Givi website said the BF30 fits those bikes so that's what I got and as the photo shows if fits fine. The BF30 kit comes with two sets of bolts for the 650 and 1000, can't remember which I used. Hope that helps.
