If you get a chance can you post some pics of how you managed the front caliber/rotor issue with the smaller F-model wheels? Thanks!

Dave, here in Yurp, the VFR1200F tends to be known as the VFR, and the VFR1200X (which was based on the F) is the Crosstourer, or CT. (We almost never call the Crosstourer a VFR1200X or VFR.)

Over in your neck of the woods, Honda rather unimaginatively left off the Crosstourer name, so it's just the VFR1200X...so I bet you call it a VFR.

Thus you can have a CT with VFR wheels and confuse everyone Stateside!  :008:

There are so few of these in the States that no one knows what they are anyway. My purchase dealer never sold or saw one and had to have it shipped in from wherever they get the bikes. My service dealer here locally had never seen one until I brought mine in for inspection. I get asked all the time what it is at fuel pumps. Some guy with more money than brains even offered an even swap for a corvette. If it was a ragtop I would have probably done it.  :008:

They came from a VFR1200F. I've adapted the front fender, and change the base of shock absorber to use the CT calipers. So the shocks are half vfr1200f half CT.

Fav, if you mean the distance from the bottom of the lower part of the screen to the bike's "nose", it's 42mm.

Then, because it's a two-part screen, the upper half sits out a further 45-48mm from the lower screen, depending on height. (Pic will give you the idea.)

Yes, I got the measurements right this time!  :008:

Where did you find those solid wheels? What bike were they originally from?

I used metal spacers at the bottom of the Givi rather than wellnuts, to kick the front edge of the screen out a bit and bring the top of the screen closer to me. It's a trick I learned on the ST1300; creates smoother wind resistance and allows airflow behind the screen.

Whats the gap from the bottom of your screen to the dash if you don't mind me asking please Hound?  I was thinking of stepping the screen out a bit but I've a feeling it might not be necessary as with the adjuster mechanism it's already stepped off a bit.
