I have a 94 that is being bought by my best friend. Best friend has a 94 also.
Forget going to pods. Frame won't allow it.
A swap to 17"s is bolt on. Rear CBR1000 from 94-95 is lighter and bolt on including discs and sprocket. The front from the first 2 years of the Blackbird CBR1100XX (97-98 I think) will bolt on. The discs swap over and there ya go. AMAZING change in the bike.
The front fender from a RC30 bolts on and is smaller and made for a 17" tire.
There isn't much slack in the cables so don't expect to do much with the bars other than a 1" riser (or a lower bar of course).
Corbin is 100% better than stock. I'm 6'3" and my friend is 5'8" and both prefer the Corbin.

Great road bike. Great range. Great milage (40mpg) no matter how hard I rode. Congrats!

Thanks everyone !

I cant say thanks enough for the tips. I have been on this site for years best forum and site on the entire Internet ! I had to do some work to get it going. This has to be one of the smoothest bikes I have ever ridden.

I remember the Big One when it came in early 94. Went to the Honda dealer to window shop. It was big and stunning in black. It was a distant memory after seeing a 1994 RC 45 on a platform in the dealer. The big one still has the same attraction it did in 94. Should be a great riding season

I forgot that the front wheel from those first 2 years of the Blackhawk were used on all 3 or 4 years of the Superhawk. VTR1000 I think? Honda's Vtwin sportbike.... anyway, the way to be sure is the correct wheels have a much larger disc mounting area than the incorrect ones. I spotted a front for the VTR (or whatever the hell it is) with a brand new Michelin for about $100 shipped. Swapped the discs, popped it on and off I went.

Not sure. Just thought I would take advantage of getting a stock exhaust and trying it. The Kerker is a nice system.

Question Oil leakage??

Hello all,

I am new to the forum here....I love all the pictures!! Great Stuff!!

I have a 95' CB1000 with about 10k miles on it, I have owned it for about 3 months. Yesterday after a short 15 mile ride I noticed a small amount of oil on the plastic sproket cover right underneath the alternator/generator. It looked to be kinda sprinkled there rather than a drip. I felt the bottom of the alternator and there is also a small amount of oil there. Has anyone else had this issue? Would simply replacing the o-ring seal take care of this slight leak?

Another point I might add here is on my ride I did strecth the bike out a bit....I ran it up to 8k on the tach 1st thru 3rd gear so I was pushing it a little....could that have caused the oil to spray out?

Other than this small issue, the bike is fantastic....super comfy, super smooth and runs like a Swiss Watch! I will NEVER sell this bike!

Did you oil the chain before you rode?

I have one. It is my basic ride. It's big, I'm kind of big. It has a 5 gallon tank. It's nice in the Summer when it's hot and you want a lot of air. It is not as fast as the newer insanacycles, but has 100 horsepower. How fast do you want to go?

I'm looking at putting on a bat wing fairing for the Winter. And i would like to get a header to replace the resonator exhaust system.

It has 18" wheels which limits your tire selection. I got a Battlax which is excellent. Some people put on 17" wheels. From what I understand they are an easy swap from some bike. I don't recall which one.

It is a UJM, bulletproof, Honda.
