  1. I'm selling the smoked headlight that came as a spare to my bike. It is used, but is still in good shape. Here's a link to the eBay posting. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Headlight-for-Honda-CBR-CBR1100XX-CBR1100-XX-Blackbird-97-07-1997-2007-smoke-/301118937988?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item461c165b84#ht_76wt_1105
  2. I have a smoked (presumably aftermarket) headlight assembly that I just removed from my 97 BB that I no longer need. They sell on eBay for $150 shipped. It's used with no cracks, chips, etc. It was on the bike when I bought it and looks great, but most of my night riding is on the highway and I need a bit more visibility than it gives. Make me an offer if you're interested.

    New HID's

    I ordered the motorcycle dual kit from DDMtuning. What a difference! It took about 45 minutes to install from start to finish. Granted the sun was going down, so I was in a hurry...

    New HID's

    Yes! I went with the 5000k Dual's. The bike that I picked up has a smoked headlight, which drastically reduces my visibility on the ride home. I figured I'd try the HID's first to see how much difference they make, and if it's still terrible, I may sell this headlight and try to find a clear one. Anyone up for a trade?
  5. Done and done! Thanks for the assistance, I think I just needed to take a breather because the heat was getting to me. I got the spark plugs changed and in the process, found out that the original owner had installed a K&N air filter already... Bonus!
  6. This is going to sound bad, but I'm working on changing the spark plugs, and am working on trying to get the air box off so that I can get to them. Having a little difficulty and was wondering what I'm missing. Undid the bolts on both sides and the lid and filter are off, but still nothing. Any suggestions? Am I missing something? Thanks!

    I just ordered my new HID's!
  8. I'm surprised that more people haven't started using them. I see crampbusters all over the internet and own one, but you have to dig deep for this one. They need to market better.
  9. With my last bike, I did a lot of highway riding, bought a Crampbuster and liked it, but always wanted more. I was debating going to a locking throttle like a Throttlemeister, just couldn't justify the price. When I found this I jumped all over it. It's so simple, it's ridiculous and couldn't work better. I originally purchased one for my last bike and just tried it out on the blackbird and it works flawlessly. It does the same thing as a Throttlemeister, is simple to use and costs $20. Hope this helps those of you that do a lot of long distance riding. Throttle Contol
  10. This morning I conquered the ticking... I gave the bird a fresh oil change with synthetic, and thanks to John's quick shipping, replaced the CCT. The bike is purring like a very loud kitten now and runs like a new bike all over again. Thanks to all for assistance and the reassurance! I wouldn't have had a clue where to start without you.
  11. Newbie question here. I know this has been talked about several times, and maybe I am looking for the wrong thing when I search for it, but I have a 97 BB that I'd like to swap to LED backlighting on the dashboard lights. I know that I've seen several discussions where this has been done. My question is how many of each bulb, what types do I need, and what color should I go with on an analog dash. I've heard white and I've also heard blue on certain threads. I spent a couple hours last night reading over threads about it, and for whatever reason can't seem to find the clear answer. Also, does anyone have a link to where they picked their's up from? Thanks!
