  what can i do!
Posted by: TheCBF_Guy - 31-12-2018, 11:04 PM - Forum: General Nattering - Replies (1)

hey guys ive just joined and im wondering what i can do to my 2005 cbf600 na. I've got a full system exhaust to put on it, more because it needs it than i want it but oh well  Big Grin im also going to be changing the chain and sprockets on it to -2 front and +3 rear just to have a good amount of torque and some fun however could i get a speed healer or something like it for it ive ordered a puig raptor screen to clean up the front end im thinking of getting a fender extender for the front and a hugger for the rear (but they're so expensive!) wanting a set of crash bungs and LED rear lights. is there anything else i can add to it to improve the look and modernise it a bit more? 

many thanks

Hi all, 

Delighted to have joined the HOC, (only 42 years after owning my first Honda!) Proud owner of a 2017 Africa Twin DCT, an 1994 XR660 (currently a jigsaw!) and a 1989 XLR250r. As you can see from my choice of bikes, I am very much interested int he off road scene, currently chairman of the Welsh Motorcycle Federation's Enduro Committee, former clerk of the course for both Weston Beach Race and the Welsh 2 Day enduro. I have retired from enduro competition, but still weigh in assisting at events. 

Living in Abergavenny, south Wales, I get to enjoy some of the best of both worlds, with interesting roads, and excellent trails. I met my wife through motorcycling and she is about to get a late Xmas present in the form of a CRF250L, so expect a few updates from our travels with our camper van with 2 bikes on the trailer. 

Regards

Huw

Hi all just found this forum! hoping to bring back and modernise my 2005 cbf600. its got a few problems at the moment that im trying to fix and any hints and tips are welcome!  Big Grin

Im currently fixing my exhaust which has a copper washer blown as i believe so im putting a nice full system black widow on as well as new engine studs to mount it too. I've just put on a givi v47 top box with the brake lights and pillion pillow, need to do the cam chain or the tensioner as its rattling, and my neutral light is flickering so need to sort that. im waiting on a puig raptor screen to be delivered to fit onto the front to clean it off, im also thinking about changing the handlebars to a lower more leaned in style and changing the sprockets sizes for more torque, and about modernising it i have seen somewhere that someone has put a full digital display on an older bandit and was wondering if i could do the same as im not a massive fan of the analogue clocks.

Many thanks!

So, erm, hi

A lifetime ago I was a member, and even attended a few East Midlands meets. I've mostly had Hondas, the outstanding ones being a CX500 hardtail trike and a GB250 Clubman thats in the gallery here (labelled as a 1988, paperwork is 1984!).  Sadly the trike is long gone, and the Clubman has had a very hard decade and doesnt look anywhere near as pretty as it did.

Somewhere in the back yard is a very ugly example of a CB250 Superdream which I keep meaning to spend some money on.

Things happened and time passed while I sorted things out.  I ran into the lovely Mr Measures at Motorcycle Live and he convinced me I should rejoin, even though I am currently running a Kawasaki.

So thats me, Jade.

Evening all. 

The other day I dropped my helmet and badly scratched the visor. No issue asi can buff the scratch out 
However I forgot that it’s got a uv film on it I’ve removed the scratch but fudged the whole visor now. 
So I try to get a new visor but it appears they are not available (dichinni d606) is my current lid. So after a hard decision, I have to buy anew lid all together. To say I am annoyed with myself is an understatement. 

So once bitten, twice shy. 

As I need a new helmet, I want one that has readily available spare visors, but I’m having some difficulty in it. 

What are other people’s suggestions? My budget is about £150 and whilst I have a current flip front helmet, it’s not a hard and fast rule.

  North Downs Branch Announcement
Posted by: Classic Honda - 04-12-2018, 12:38 PM - Forum: Branch news - Replies (3)

The North Downs Branch of the HOC is currently inactive. I have resigned as branch secretary and nobody has stepped forward to take on the roll. Some months ago we lost our meeting place and it has not been possible to find a suitable replacement venue that is biker friendly, provides reliable food at sensible prices and is geographically acceptable to the branch catchment area.

If anybody is interested in organising this branch please contact Graham at gensec@hoc.org.uk
