RE: That ugly round blank on the throttle body
Cool what you did to cover that blank space.
Until I saw this thread I had never even noticed this blank spot, but now out of curiosity I looked for it.
Yep, it's there alright, but hardly anything that concerns me at all.
And yes, I'm one of those who doesn't feel properly dressed unless there are bills in my wallet and change in my pocket - and plastic too Big Grin
Cash is good anywhere. Being able to use plastic isn't always available in some remote areas, but everyone understands cash Thumbs Up

How about a CB1100 Forum Coin ? Here is one company: http://custom.nwtmint.com/products_coins.php

Great addition for the Forum Store

I like it! I wonder how expensive that would be and the minimum number of coins they'd be able to mint.

I think a Mikuni, Kehin or the like, or a Honda logo would suit me just fine. Double stick automotive trim tape or a dab of silicon. Smile Great idea.

I never noticed this spot before. But once seen, I couldn't avoid seeing it every time I looked at the right side of the bike.

I found a cure, filing one side of a quarter smooth, painting it black, and gluing it into place. Much less annoying now. Whew!

That gives me an idea. I might paint the quarter with anodized red paint and it'll match the oil filler plug I bought off you a while back.

RE: That ugly round blank on the throttle body
This morning as I was slappin' the tankslapper on my CB, I told my wife what The Un-Decider had done in the round blank spot. She disappeared back in the house to then reappear with a Puerto Rico quarter.
Thumbs Up
