looks great !!!!
That looks good. I think it looks better with pipes you have than with the 4 into 4's shown on the website.
Thanks Dao 1 for the explanation ....Mobiker I think you’re right.....I don’t like the gap on the Wyverns....if I put on pipes they’ll be these from Endurance Racing
Those look a lot better. A lot.
I still think it looks fine the way you have it.
Desert's K10 transformation will look AMAZING with ANY config, stock 4:2, 4:4, or 4:1 ,
as per Samurider pic shows...
IF there's anything irregular w/ a 4:1 on a K10, I simply don't see it.
that K10 kit is a game changer, it elevates this bike into a whole new level of aesthetics.
I'm definately going to sell my '17 CB1100EX, the decision has been made. I love looking at it, but find myself not actually riding it enough to justify hanging on to it, and we've pretty much exceeded the space limit in our garage by one bike.
I'm so glad you're around, because you make me feel less guilty about how quickly I go through bikes.
Nice stable...is that a water buffalo along the wall?
Sure would be easier to keep them shiny! And I could keep $2100 in my wallet!
Yes, the '76 I picked up late last year. It should be up and running before summer, then the plan is to 'nickle and dime' it back up to a very good condition cosmetically over the next several years.
Here it is right after I brought it back from Kansas City, I rode it two days, then started to pull it apart a bit to start fixing some things up.
I bought a Delkevic full reproduction exhaust system for it, it will get a repaint (tank and sidecovers) next month, and the instrument cluster will be sent off for a complete restoration towards the end of this month.
1/2 of the Delkevic repro exhaust...
This may be old news, but anyhow....
Patents hint at new Honda CB1100
".....there appear to be changes to the bottom end, with a smaller clutch cover that hints at changes to the transmission. The exhausts are also new, with header pipes that sweep across to the right hand side, a little like the current CB650R or the 1970s CB400F, gathering into a single end can."
"The current CB1100 has a full duplex frame, with two steel tubes running up and over the engine to the headstock, and another two cradling the motor from underneath. That design has gone in these patent images, replaced by a half-duplex frame that keeps the two under-engine cradles but has a single, thick spine running over the top. In many ways the design is more ‘authentic’ than the existing CB1100’s chassis, as the original CB750 featured a half-duplex backbone chassis."
"The seat subframe is also different, triangulated to a point higher up above the swingarm pivot, near the monoshock’s upper mount. That makes for a significant visual change for the bike, with a lighter appearance for the rear end."
".....it appears that Honda is working on a system that uses the front mudguard to help scoop air, ejecting it through a vent that focusses the flow towards the centre two cylinders."
"Honda’s patent .... showing computer-simulated airflow diagrams of the design."
Curious how the new tank will look Dao....
I have a Chrome Delkevic 4 into 4 on order for my Z900rs......that will be a blast with some sticky rubber riding thru the Black Hills area.....LOVE 2 strokes, here is mine
At risk of sounding like a cranky geezer, I hope the new sub frame design doesn't bring about the jacked up, "cat in heat" rear end look, that's become so common. It makes luggage carrying awkward & sure doesn't help with pillion comfort. Plus, visually, it strikes a sour note when there's a foot & a half of space above the rear wheel on a bike that has maybe 5" of suspension travel back there.
I know, old news, but still....
Honda UK has commissioned 5Four Motorcycles to build a run of 54 custom motorcycles based on the CB1100 RS.
I concur as well. And don't point the muffler 45 degrees up, keep it lower and pointing straight back. On the front I'd like to see an 18" wheel with a real fender.
This trend has GOT to stop!
Have heard awesome things about the Z900, but can’t get over the rear end.
