Thanks Oyley

This must be the one your friend bought.

I had a look at the book for the dash brightness, page 32 seems simple enough

According to my book I have "Emergency Stop Signal" If I brake hard the indicators will flash as well as the brake light  :191:

Does anyone know whether this Emergency Stop Signal is a new feature for model year 2020, or was this already on the 2019?

Congratz Guys for your new horses! :)

I've found Givi and Hepco & Becker accesories are pretty good for the bike. To this day I've bought Honda's original central stand and 12V plug, rack from Givi with 42l Trekker Outback hard case in mind (great choice tough), Givi side stand extender (great for mud, sand, grass, gravel surfaces), Givi hand protectors (pretty good wind and rain protection, but they are all plastic, which is a big shame for this price...), Hepco & Becker tank and engine guards (very, very solid, no vibrations, no problems whatsoever during 6000+ km).

Future modifications for this year include:

- Skid plate, head light protector, ABS protectors (front and rear), and rear brake fluid tank protector from SRC;
- Possible swap of Hepco & Becker tank and engine guards to those from SRC (so maybe I'll be selling mine in the close future - they are in a perfect condition tough, but I want to do some offroad and SRC guards seem to be far more suitable for such riding);
- Windshield (higher by 15 cm than the original), flange for fitting tankclock tankbag (but I'm also considering SW Motech system), and stainless radiator guard (but I'm also considering SRC one, but it's more expensive tough :/), all from Givi;
- Bar riser (increase handlebar height by 20 mm) from SW Motech.
- Oxford heated grips;
- ...and some additional lights for night crawling. Can't decide what to choose to be honest.

I had a look at the book for the dash brightness, page 32 seems simple enough

There is also a cool feature related to a flashing dashboard light (vertical LED on the right) indicating specific engine's RPM value. You can not only set its brightness but also RPM value for which it will start to blink.

Does anyone know whether this Emergency Stop Signal is a new feature for model year 2020, or was this already on the 2019?

It's a feature already present in the '19 model.

The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.

The blank in the centre is for the optional fog light switch - I think.

Tyre pressures are either what it says in the book or on the swinging arm. (Or about 30 front and 36 rear if you dont want to feel every rough bit of road!)

Red is the best colour!

New dash is ok but could be slightly bigger and brighter and I preferred the rev counter on the old one. The gear position indicator is the best new feature!!

Nice purchase, I think I saw it for sale somewhere.

Barkbusters are good, you want the BHG-074 kit. Unfortunately they hit the screen when it's in the high position but loads of clearance in the low.

Roll on spring!

Sorry Japes I thought I replied

Yea it was on FB

Thanks for the advice  :062:

Nice one Steve  :152:

Want to swap?  :164:

Dont worry Swanny.  White may be the prettiest but red is the fastest...

Red is worth a couple of extra BHP's  :038:


I thought all new Honda's came with Datatag but but it doesn't look as though mine has it  :187:

Pardon my ignorance, but what is this Datatag?
