Oil flow

I mentioned earlier that the Honda CBF1000s (first gen) were known to fry stators. Honda's only change to the engine for the Gen 2 (2010-) models was to add a second oil passage to the alternator. So far I'm not aware of any stator failures on the Gen 2 CBFs, and I've been following the stator threads on the CBF forum. There's a few higher mileage riders with Gen 2's so it looks like Honda may have fixed their stator issues with increased oil volume.
