Honda CB1000

Anyone else here have a CB1000? They're rare I know, but they have a look real similar to the CB919.

Don't have one, but used some Big One parts once

The front end is very trick on the CB-1000. Quick release. Don't crash it, or it will cost a small fortune to fix. I used the front end on a custom bike once.

I attached a picture of what your front end looked like on my old Shadow. Polished of course. Direct bolt on to a shadow (thorough research on my part).

The CB-1000 (Big One) and the CB-1300 ("Bigger One") are more popular in Japan and in Europe than the states. It makes about 100 hp vs the CBR1000 (same engine, but different heads, etc.) which makes 120+hp. It was a tough sell after that info got out.

I've got one. Rode it some last weekend. Wicked bike if you ask me. I've ridden a 919 also, and although it was faster, I think the 1000 is a little more menacing looking.
Where are you from?

Gotcha. I'm just outside Chicago, IL. Have you done anyhting yet to your CB? I bought mine with a TBR Exhaust, jetted and with a Vance and Hines Power Pak igntion. I've been having trouble finding parts for it also. If you know anyone with a spare set of forks, please let me know as mine are bent from the previous owner.

No, it's all stock except for a K&N filter. I've not had any trouble finding OEM parts but I would like an aftermarket bolt on muffler. Do you happen to know what size the flange is?

I dont know off hand, as I have a Two Brothers full exhaust. OE parts are still pretty available, but there is a very small US aftermarket for it though.

Hello Friends,

Last year, Honda introduced the CB1000R stateside, a machine that was quickly categorized into the naked sportbike/street fighter genre.
Although naked sportbikes are not as popular in America as they are overseas, the CB 1000 R became a popular model, mostly due to its streetability and bold looks.
Due to its popularity, Honda returns with the CB1000 R for 2012 with the only upgrade being a new matte gray metallic color. All else remains the same, which will likely please CB fans. The 2012 CB1000R has its roots in the 1969 Honda CB750 KO, which was the first mass-market inline four sportbike. The 2012 model arrives with fuel-injected four-cylinder 998cc powerplant tuned for torque, making acceleration a priority.

Thanks and Regards,
Umang Kumar
