Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Is anyone in or near East Anglia looking for a good, cheap CB500?

I'm tempted myself, but it's the less desirable S model. Besides I really don't need another....

This is totally erroneous. The 'S' is faster, sexier, more desirable and all round the most wonderful version. So there. Twisted Evil

Agreed. The sooner we can scotch these rumours that only smelly puffters ride the s model the better!

I think the naked bike looks better, i dont like s version clocks or fairing either. Hard  to believe its faster. I suppose fairing is good for motorways.
I have little screen over head light so i doubt there any real diffrence with speed from s

I thought the S has a longer wheelbase, because of the different slant on the front forks?
