See, they still have a little wiggle room on that gas tank to increase it a gallon.
Winging it every chance I get 8-)

19,119 miles when I got it from dad Oct 15, 2017 --- 22,072 miles and counting as of June 14, 2018!

The "new demographic" won't miss it. How many gallons do you need to go bar hopping?

Thanks for the great pics; much appreciated!

Where is the air filter? (I suspect it's buried pretty much in the same place as the prior model's) LOL.

I am interested in finding instructions on removing the plastics. I want to run some wiring and hate the idea of just starting to pull and tug on some of these parts.

The Honda accessories have instructions for pulling the plastic with them.
