Just stick a flathead screwdriver in and rotate the screw on the outside.
Why do most bikes with an oil sight glass not have this? I’ve never had an issue with an oil sight glass needing cleaning from the inside.
I no longer have my CB1100, but Samurider offers a Nojima 4 into 1 in matte black that sounded and looked incredible. I will try to post a link, but I'm a doofus on this android tablet.
If the link doesn't show, just go to Samurider.com...choose CB1100, then exhausts.
The red CB on that page was mine.
That's a nice-looking pipe!
I love the Staintune on mine. It's not loud but has a low rumbling sound. I hear the company is back in business in Australia.
I pulled the wheels today to get ready for the new tires. Easy, peasy job. It helped to remove the 4 bolts holding the front fender in place and I slipped shims between the brake pads.
staintune is back.. that’s awesome….
I hadn’t used staintune before my cb1100 and I’m seriously impressed.. I got mine used off the forum for super cheap figuring if I didn’t like it (new their pricey) I’d part with it
I love the pipe.. it’s looks factory, adds a nice rumble (doesn’t sound like a sewing machine anymore).. It impressed me enough that I’d probably be a first choice for aftermarket for next bike
Changed the oil on my CB today. Simple job on this bike. Since I was at the Honda parts counter getting crush washers, I also bought the Honda OEM filter and synthetic oil - a bit pricey, but I walked out of the store with everything I needed for the oil change.
A 17mm wrench for the drain bolt, and a piece of tin foil to direct draining oil from the filter away from the exhaust pipes. Nothing drained from the crank breather hose. Exactly 380ml of oil registers at the top line of the oil lever port. Using a screwdriver to rotate the port washer actually helped visibility.
This bike has so far been super-easy to work on.
Please tell me about your front fender, where did you get it and how much? It looks great!
It's made by Whitehouse , sold here:
it's well constructed & engineered, i didn't have to remove the wheel to put this new fender on.
Very nice! Thanks!
Curious what folks use in their CB1100, conventional motor oil or synthetic?
Here in Vegas where it get's mighty warm, I wanted all the protection I could get.
And considering it is only oil cooled, I went with synthetic (Honda recommended).
Why not just stick with oil spec that the manufacturer stipulates in the owner's manual?
I just posted a lightly used K&N filter in the Flea Market.

I'm coming down with next bike fever. The CB has been a great bike and is running perfectly, but the Honda CB 500X and NC 750X have got me looking. I imagine that mine will be in the Flea Market before long.
Both bikes you are looking at are fine Honda's and I looked at them both. But I wanted just a bit more HP for my highway stints.
And because the CB1100's are getting a bit harder to find, I decided to stick with a future classic.
