Check the adjustment on your cable and be sure it is completely disengaging. These bikes are normally very smooth shifting. The adjustment doesn't have to be far off to be a problem.

The image that I started with really wasn't high enough resolution but I made my sticker pretty small. this should be ok if you don't try to make it more than four or five inches wide.

I'll see what I can do. I'm a hack at best.

Love the hack. Also, where did you get the Halfrica logos?!?!
I took a screen shot of the real deal and then edited it. Sent it to one of the online print companies. Under $10 I think. Its been a couple of years.

I'm six foot tall and decided to try the same thing after the original screen was damaged. I cut about two inches off the top and really liked it. About a week later, I picked up the two inch scrap to throw it away and decided to try something else. I made two brackets to offset it about an inch and a half ahead of the short  screen. Works even better than the cut screen.

The tank was changed in 16 along with the side plastics. Before you go the used route, check new prices. I found new parts were cheaper than any I could find on-line. I paid under $50 for the main side panel with the decals in place ready to fit. Good luck with your recovery and your bikes.

My CB just spent a week of 250 mile days in western North Carolina. I loaned it to a friend who was a good enough rider that he kept up at the front of a pack of BMW XR, Ducati Super Sport, and a pack of VFR800's. That was on Shinko 705's no less. I spent the week telling everybody to ride it, don't look at the spec sheet. The bike is way better than it should be.

Parts on these bikes are cheap compared to most. The tank looks ok and that is the most expensive part. The down side of the cheap parts is that they break fairly easily. The good news is that doesn't look too bad. The bad news is that doesn't look to bad (no new 2019).  :001:
Good luck with the settlement. I hope you come out better than before.
