  1. Hi all, i have a honda cb250t 78 model in imac condtion an a friend of mine has the same bike in a 400 they are pretty much idintical in size and wieght has anyone put a 400t or n motor in a 250 but i dont want to destroy the bike as it is in original and imac condition all i want to do is speed the bike up, and would it affect the rego also does anyone no where i can find a good muffler for this bike...

  2. dude.. it won't keep the bike original, for the cost, etc.. just get a new bike.
  3. What tmz said.....just get something else and see what you can get for your 250 - looks like a nice bike. If you r in Vic try www.centralmotorcycles.com.au they often have Honda 400s amongst other great stuff.
  4. x2.

    Unless the shape/body/external components of the bike are classic, (eg Cagiva Mito 125 that is styled around Ducati 996, but is a 2 stroke 125), then get a new bike, it will probably be cheaper and easier - the cb250 isn't exactly a classic. 250's are overvalued as learner bikes on the market, as soon as you drop a 400 into it won't add any value whatsoever - may as well trade up.
  5. i'd put it in the "more trouble then worth" pile
  6. i never meant that

    I :grin: never meant that. I don't want another bike I like the cb250, it does what I want it to do. It is cheap on fuel and rego.All I want it to do is to speed it up, if not I will keep it the way it is.
  7. Dont do it, the bike is worth more $$$ as is (even if thats SFA) and besides you'd turn an almost clasic in to a clasic pile of shit
