Opposite side of the head/cylinder. And more of the silky matte aleweminiyum parts.

Another great shot. The British pronunciation of aluminum is a nice touch too, ha!

Oh well, my dealer said he ordered me a service manual for it so I will read about it there. He gets the manuals so much cheaper than we can online.
Oil temp warning system

The ECM monitors the oil temperature EOT sensor, TP sensor, CKP sensor, and if oil temp reaches 172 c degrees an oil temp indicator lamp will illuminate to alert the rider. also the ECM will make adjustments to some engine controls to inhibit excessive oil temp when idling or riing at slow speed for long periods in ot weather.

Hubless floating brake disc

To enhance the clean styling of the CB 1100 the floating disc brake pins are bolted directly to the wheel, eliminating the typical disc hub and rivets. If it becomes necessary to remove the brake discs be sure to note the order of assembly of the washers,disc, springs, collars and bolts.if you have any doubts, refer to the Service Manual.

Seriously? Man, I think that would border on a criminal act. Powder coat that beautiful polished cam cover? Maybe if it were 20 years old and horribly oxidized, otherwise, why?

Salesman sent me this photo of my bike today. I agreed to let them display it before I'm able to pick it up (it's 100 miles away and the high temp here is still struggling to get into the 50s, not to mention the wind is usually howling at 30 mph). Not the best photo quality, but a nice shot with that CBX Six in the background, no?

If i were going to black powder coat anything on this bik it would be the rear passenger pegs and footpeg brkt. I did that on my FZ-1 and it made those parts virtually disappear.

Nice....Yes!

You need to get them to throw some rubber ball end covers on that thing

I too thought the side covers should match the tank; until I saw it in the flesh. I really think it would have been overkill; the paint on the tank is flawless, and the silver on the sides leaves you wanting more, if that makes sense. This is a well thought out machine, I would be very hesitant to change anything, but then again, I've said that before.

Nice Fizzer, Ferret. It sure does make those components disappear visually. I understand some guys -- probably more of the younger buyers of this bike, if there are any -- will mod to their heart's content. That's surely their prerogative. Other than the Staintune exhaust and the rear rack, I'm not going to mess with it. I think. I am interested to see how I get along with the handlebars. I certainly won't be going with higher ones, though. Lower if anything.
