I could be wrong but I believe the 5-digit number is a description of that part and doesn't necessary mean it will fit on other models; conversely, you'd think that Honda would have tried to share as many parts and assemblies from the NCX to the CTX to reduce production costs. :-)
I believe that Aerostich has a 12-year limit on the age of pants, jackets, and one piece suits they will repair.
A few months ago, the fly zipper on my Darian pants (8 yrs old) broke so I sent them off to Duluth for repair. From the time they received my pants, they had them back to me a few...
Rabbit - I love my Darians and they are my all-around, everyday riding pants. They are custom length and I bought them one size larger than my street pants so there's plenty of room inside which allows good airflow even on 90-degree days and during cold weather, I can wear long johns with it...
Nice story! Personally I prefer the Givi side boxes vs a top box although the latter can be more convenient. I reason I steer away from the top box on my NC is that it requires much more of an effort to get my leg over and onto the seat. :-)
If you set the rear tire pressure at the correct number when cold, then discover it is way high when hot so release some pressure, it will now be below the correct number when cold! Just leave it alone. :-(
The effectiveness and comfort level of any windshield can be very subjective depending on a lot of conditions. I may have a VStream Tall windshield in my garage storage so I'll have to check and will get back to you.
The difference in hole pattern of the V-stream vs Palmer bracket is not related to two different country of origins - just two completely separate companies. I would worry about the Palmer brackets being up to the task of holding the much larger V-stream.
Yes, the Honda cap wrench does a wonderful job removing stuck OEM filters. The OEM auto filters are the same size so my cap wrench does double duty and works much better than any strap wrench!
When my sons were still learning on how to change oil, they would often drive away from my garage...
