Found this one on Amazon. (Before they ran out?) Still on the way.

I want one of those with a USB port to charge my phone.

I installed my Seat Concepts seat a few days ago and have taken a few rides with it.

So let me say that immediately after installing the seat and trying it out in the garage, I was impressed. Right away I thought, "Ok, this should fix my problems." Seat felt great when sitting on it.

But about 20 minutes into my first ride, same tail bone pain as before. I stayed off the bike for about three days, and yesterday took a couple hour ride to see if anything was better. No luck.

I like the Seat Concepts seat better than the stock seat, but only barely so. It's just not going to work for me... so my next option is to go over to a local custom seat builder and see what he can do for me.

I had almost the same experience.  My Seat Concepts was better than stock but started to get uncomfortable after a couple of hours.  I traded another CB owner for the tall Seat Concepts seat and it's perfect.  No comfort issues at all.

If you had a set of lower guards installed you could mount them to that.  I had some highway pegs mounted to my Vstroms engine guards.

That's the reason I haven't tried to mount generic pegs to my engine guards.

I've seen some that are designed to fold up over the guard itself, but for $50+ I haven't been motivated enough to test it out.

Mine did fold up and still had the damage.

I can't tell from the pictures or description but did you mount them to the engine?

Something to consider.  I mounted a set of highway pegs to my FZ1 and had a fall.  The peg broke off and cracked the engine case.

Meh, I'm happy with the power delivery.  Wouldn't change a thing.  The problem with wanting more is that it never ends.  Besides, I got the red one so it's a touch faster.  :152:

Really? For me it looked like plug, so there will not get any water... What size of terminals do I need then?

It's not a plug.  It's the connector.  Unplug it and have a look.  In not familiar with the terminology used to size the terminals but it's a common terminal used in the automotive industry.  I had a few connectors in my tool box that I had saved from past work and was able to scavenge the terminals.

will this connector fit? I want to install alternative socket, and I am looking for the connector

Why do you need a connector?  Honda includes it with the bike.  You just need the terminals for the connector.

I've had the big bike, then wanted bigger, which I got.  Was tired of paying out all the money for fuel and insurance.  CB has been great and couldn't care less what someone thinks.   Besides, the trend is now going to smaller displacement bikes.
