  1. on a previous bird, the inner part of the fairing had been rubbing on one of the side tanks, making a pin hole over time... i ended up soldering that but, i bet jb weld would've worked too. +1 for repair or replacement with a cheap ebay unit.
  2. i had mine done a few months ago, was a bit under $300. besides the usual stuff, the shop recovered the lines to the remote reservoirs.
  3. i like the analog dash but, always thought the tach should be front & center... to the o.p., that's becoming an increasingly tall order and i'd expect to pay at least $5k. try https://www.searchtempest.com/
  4. installed this yesterday. i noticed the rubber stopper had gone missing and a bit of chain wear on one of the center stand "feet" (no visible wear to the chain). easy install (uses the right side sidestand bolt) and easy to adjust. i hear there're still several left. i'd recommend this, even if you're running pipes with the rubber stop.
  5. thought i'd shared here before but, perhaps i'm not good at searching... someone on another bird forum with less nudity and less probability of offense will be making more soon; https://www.cbrxx.com/threads/centerstand-stop.50226/#post-645962 useful for aftermarket exhausts that lack or have substandard center stand stops. one wonders why i still frequent this place... oh yeah, the nudity probability of being offended! 🤪
  6. i'm with you, zero. return it to service. one shouldn't be under anything supported by only a jack anyway... sounds like yours might just need to be refilled and bled. guy has a bunch of how to videos.

    Fork up-grade

    this ebay listing gives the impression they could make you triple clamps (yoke) to fit most any type of usd forks; https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Blackbird-Thug-Style-Billet-Fork-Yokes-to-fit-USD-front-end-Triple-Trees/162661803454?hash=item25df6625be:g:rV8AAOSwvYZZoY~v
  8. think you just confirmed what furbird and ironmike were on to. if it were just loose, you might be able to tighten. that little notch you're feeling is a dent worn into the bearing race with the steering at "dead ahead".
  9. mind sharing the particulars as far as size of the house and cost of materials / installation? here in california, cities are starting to make new construction go the other way (aka electrification). i believe berkeley now requires new construction to be all electric.
  10. if you're home to hear it, how about a wireless doorbell? https://www.amazon.com/wireless-doorbell/s?k=wireless+doorbell beyond my abilities but, couldn't something like that trigger a landline call or some other type of notification if you're not home with her?
  11. i believe it was these guys; http://daughertymotorsports.com/
  12. member of another forum is going to make a run of these; https://www.cbrxx.com/threads/centerstand-stop.50226/#post-644458
  13. no skin in the game. i'm 15 minutes away; https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/mcy/d/morgan-hill-honda-cbr1100xx-blackbird/7140896171.html
  14. +1 on the h.f. systems. i have the wired one with 6 cameras. i installed the wireless one at my dad's place. pretty easy to setup and use, although i haven't yet connected either to the web, i'm ok with just local storage. with the 6 cameras on motion only recording, i can store about a month. resolution could be better, 1080p isn't always enough to read plates.
