What have you done to your CBR today?

Postby garyb » Sun 27 Feb,2011 17:58

Just a suggestion folks, how about we have a thread on here for as the title says, anything (at all) that you have done to your CBR today?

Not sure if this is on here already? but I think it would be a good idea, even as a sticky?

Sure I will start anyways.....

Changed the headlight bulb on my 600FX to a Phillips X-treme power bulb - savage difference :lol:

Also don't think I posted this in the best section, maybe mods can move to general bike discussions?

Was gonna go far a ride, as it was bright and sunny, but had to pick a mate up from the airport.
When I got back, I was about to go out and the sky dropped its load :cry:

Contemplated whether to formally advertise her and buy a Z1000 or keep her and install a Yoshi can. :?:

I gave the wheels a good scrub down yesterday as I'd never really cleaned them properly always just washed the bike and ignored them.

I'll have a few jobs to do soon though as I've got an HID kit coming from HID4U and a carbon rear hugger from eBay, both should be hear in the next couple of days.

I even ordered my insurance online this afternoon as it was too nice and I wanted to get out on it for the first time this year but the phuckers were suppose to send a conformation email to say I was covered and it didn't arrived!

Also have my eye on some Oxford heated grips too for the next purchase...
