    Oh nice! You must live west of me. First thing in the morning is the only time I’d want to hit skyline on a bike anyway!

    I'd like to put CB1100 RS bars on it, or something similar. I like lower bars, and I'm not particularly fond of the bend, or rise, of the stock EX bars, then perhaps fit it with a nice, chrome, set of retro Napoleon bar end mirrors.

    I'll assume that the handlebar switch housings are 'pinned' to the bars, so I would have to drill a corresponding hole in the new bars to make it all work..

    Switching bars on this bike should otherwise be a pretty simple proposition.

    I just grind the peg off, they stay in place just fine with screw pressure and then you don't have to worry about getting that hole in just the right spot!

    CB500F stock bars are a bolt on replacement if you want a flatter bar and if memory serves the hole is in the perfect spot.

    Well, after several hundred miles on my CB1100EX, I can say that the seat, as beautiful as it is, numbs my.....'parts', after about fifty miles. Both my 2016 Royal Enfield 500 and 2004 1200 Sportster also did this, though none of our other bikes do (1200 Thruxton, Z650, 2015 Sportster 1200, and of course, the Goldwing).

    It's not due to any sort of vibration, but something about the shape or padding of the seat that must be putting pressure on just the right point of my anatomy to cause this particular 'physiological phenomenon'.

    Regardless, the seat is too '70's pretty' to consider replacing, so I'll just live with it.

    That 'unknown brand' windscreen sure looks like a $260+ MRA VarioScreen.
    I am sure someone will take it.
    That weird-ass Continental is a TKC70, also not really cheap, but normally suited to an ADV bike.

    I knew it was an MRA windscreen, but it's n a (very) casual search, I couldn't find the specific model, so thanks for the info.

    I'll put some wear on that rear Continental, then sometime in the spring I'll replace both ends with something a bit more street/sport oriented. The stock front is about 65% shot.

    You may want to try a sheepskin. There are black ones too.
    You can often buy a hunk at fabric or craft stores, if it helps you can then get the buckle and stretchy strap sewn on at a shoe repair.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I don't intend on riding the CB out of about a 75 mile radius of home base, so I can live with a little numbnut now and then...besides, it's not like I use them for much these days anyway.

    I would like to change the stock round mirrors on my CB to something more rectangular, or preferably chrome 'teardrop' shaped, and with a bit less 'bug antenna-like' stalks.

    Any suggestions on what might fit this bike?

    I noticed that the left mirror has a left-hand thread that turns into a small extender under the rubber cover, that then has a right hand thread into the bar bracket.....is that weird, or what? Why would it be that way? I thought only Yamahas had a reverse thread mirror.

    "Whitehouse is a motorcycle custom parts manufacturer, whose headquarters is located 30 minutes away from the center of Tokyo by car. Established more than 30 years ago by Mr.Ukai who had designed at Honda, we excel in designing custom complete motorcycles by using commercial ones. Since then, his talent has become well-recognized, and now Mr.Satou serves as head of Whitehouse. One of our work designed in the past is valued at the premium price of around 3 million yen, which exceeds the sales price at that time. CB1100-base K10 produced in 2010 has been well-received and about 200 of it have been already sold in Japan. Honda’s big bike, CB1100, is an easy-to-ride and high-quality popular model. They brought back the genes of old “K Series” loved in the 70s into the present once again, and pursued the body shape that the generations who had once wanted and dreamed it hoped to own and drive that coolness again. By combining their legend “K” and “10”, the completed year “2010”, we named it “CB1100 four K10”. K10, precisely reproduced CB750K which still have strong fans worldwide. It offers pleasure of riding of course, but just looking at it is fun too. Its quality created great response not only within Japan but also to foreign motorcycle magazine editors, who visited us to cover it all the way from their countries after having heard its reputations."
