Honda CB400

Discussion in 'Showcase' at netrider.net.au started by dunyesti, Jun 5, 2011.

  1. Hello all, I have just got my learners and have got my first road bike. I will try to post some photos. Its a Honda CB400 with olins rear suspension, yoshi pipe, steering dampner, the front shocks have internals done, smaller sprockets and a computer thingy to let it rev out in 5th and 6th gear. Done 4500km and paid $8000. The guy said it had about $5000 of extras and man it goes compared to standard. I just got to figure out how to post photos.

  3. If he (so-called) spent all that money and ridden it so little, why was he getting rid of it? I'd have tp agree with Goz, $5k of additions seems a bit of a stretch mate.

  4. The owner of the bike is in his fifties and was a avid bike rider. He suffered a heart attack and his coorardination suffered as a result and they come up with racing bikes as a part of his rehab. He is not short of cash as he had two identical models one for the wet one for the dry. This is the one set up for dry. He run it in on the road then stripped all lights and indicators off and modified it for racing. Alan Rigby from here done all mods. Anyhow he moved up to 1000cc and was offloading this one the same time I was looking. The olins $2500, steering dampener $600, race throttle $300, internal suspension $500, front and rear race sprockets $400, stak protectors $300, yoshimura pipe $500, plus the rev metre under the seat $?. So I couldn't let it pass me by.

  8. Yeah, I'd say you did really well there, mate. Lucky bastard!

    I've never heard of a steering dampner, I'll have to look that one up.

  9. It stops the front wheel from speed wobbles when racing. Looks cool too.

  11. Looks like you got a good buy. I've loved the look of the little CB since it was released in Australia; kinda makes me wish it (and the LAMS scheme) was around when I was on my plates.
