Cb 1000

Hardly anyone uses the Naked forum, so does anyone else here have a CB1000 and what do you think of it compared to the 919?

Vast difference between a 919 & a 1000 or was that a typo error & you meant 929 & 1000? Also the 919 being a naked bike compared to the 900, 929 954 & 1000 being with complete fairings.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

The CB-1000 was basically a CBR-1000F, stripped. It will be heavier than a new 919. The HP is probably about the same. Also, the CB-1000 will have a longer wheelbase, probably more passenger friendly.

They are a good, dependable, motor with the only maintenance item being cam chain tensioners that give up anytime after about 25,000 miles to 50,000 miles. Mine has used three now, each getting 43 to 45,000 miles. A nuisance but they get an "A" for predictability.

CB 1000

Smitty, I'm not talking about the CBR 1000. Ther CB 1000 is a naked bike that was only imported to the U.S. in '94 and '95. Look one up, they are fairly rare.

they look boss but i think the reason theynever really took of was because they were a little lacking on the hp's and a little heavy.
check the tire size too i think they had odd sized tires.
id go with the 919.

cb 1000, cool bike just ahead of its time (just like the hawk gt)

CB 1000

By the way I got the CB 1000. I was just wandering if anyone had ridden both it and the 919. I think they didn't sell as well mostly because they were a little before the whole naked sportbike craze.

My apologizies as I did not go back that far in time.

Personally I cannot even recal either of the bikes around my area.

I've ridden both and bought the Cb1000( good deal, not because I liked it better). I have to say, the 919 is probably a better bike. Fuel Injection, newer and I believe there is a greater aftermarket for them available.

I was fortunate in that one of the previous owners has already piped, jetted and installed a V&H programable igniton on my 1000.

I've only ridden it 3 times in as many weeks( folks dont know I bought it) but from my experience between the two I liked the 919 better.

I've ridden both as well... The 919 will absolutely kill the top heavy CB1000 in every conceivable way that a sportbike would...

then again any true supersport derived current 600 will kill the 919 in the same way so it's all relative...
