    Is it both high and low beam? Most headlight bulbs are now manufactured in China, even name brands like Sylvania - and IMHO they are crap. I've had them burn out after 3 months. The Japan made OEM bulbs in my Camry finally failed at 190,000 miles and I drive with them on 24/7. After several disappointing tries with both Phillips and Sylvania, I found Japan sourced OEM bulbs on Amazon and have had no troubles since. If the bulbs have failed this may be an instance where paying up for Honda OEM might be worth it. YMMV

    Could be the starter switch. Seriously. Happened to me once it just needed a good cleaning.

    Your first sentence is factually correct (incidentally the same kerb weight as the 800F), however I'd argue your second; I find the wider bars give greater leverage and therefore steering is easier and more precise. As for the last part, well we all see different things in different bikes and it can often be surprising when we actually ride a bike just how different we feel about it. The Crossrunner section on here is not very busy, mainly I think because the bike is not available in N America, but we have many converts from other adventure-style manufacturers including BMW, Triumph and Ducati, who all seem very, very happy with their move to the 800X on another site. And in the end, it is a VFR. Each to their own.

    Good point. They weigh practically the same. Im partial to the impractical sport bikes like the RC30 or RC45 or 900rr. A sport bike that can commute and reel in highway miles to get to the canyons without too much discomfort is a justifiable purchase for me. Those Euro touring bikes are just not that interesting to me. If comfort is that much of a priority for commuting or highway touring, I might as well just drive a car.

    Thanks so much for the input! - It is rubber. - Agreed, the caliper was only to provide a general size reference; without it, it's impossible to tell if the seal is tiny or massive, so I figured I'd throw it in. I took a more careful measurement, and it comes in at around 11 mm in OD. But this is after it split - I can easily see it being 10 when intact. - I took a more careful look at the fiche in the link I provided. According to that, the clutch rod seal at the back of the piston (#24) should be 18 mm in OD, which this one most definitely isn't. - The chain o-ring suggestion was an excellent one. Both flat faces are grooved, as is the outer curved surface. I took a look at the o-rings of the master link of my brand new chain and they look exactly like this. I then took a look at the old chain - it's missing o-rings everywhere! The bike was massively neglected by the last owner and the old chain looked awful, but still, I'm really surprised to see that. Looks like I've found the answer - thanks to this awesome community here.

    Looks very much like an old Chain O Ring to me. Is it just rubber and about 10mm in dia? Your caliper isn't giving a good reading of size as it not touching the item! Assume it's around 10mm which matches the diameter of a chain O Ring. Nothing to worry about.
