CBR400 parts availability & interchangeability???

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by boxh34d, Aug 9, 2009.

  1. Hi everyone.

    I'm looking at a local CBR400, and it has been suggested that parts could be an issue being a grey import. My first thought relates to cars in that usually 80% of mechanical parts are interchangeable between other models, so they are usually not a problem, but body parts and trims etc can be.
    Is this the same for bikes?
    I'm found that there are some around at various wreckers should major baprts be required, but are consumables like brake pads, chains and sprockets etc readily available, or to what extent are part supplies limited.
    I've had a good look through the interwebs, but I can't seem to find much that is difinitive.
    I appreciate any help.
