    [Q] What is the size of the oil drain plug for CB400 ?

    M14 x 1.5mm? or M12 x 1.5mm?

    And is it the same sizing for CB400 of different years ?

    the M12 x 1.5 mm is for CB400 F 1975-1977;1989-1990, XR400, XR600R, XR650.
    so is the oil drain plug for both the XR400 and CB400 same size?

    whereas the M14 x 1.5mm is for the CB400 A 1978, CB400 T 1978-1981.

    so which is which?

    [Q] My Spec 1 just changed EO recently and on new year's eve.. i went down to shift my bike from the void deck only to realise that EO is leaking... I went back to my bike shop and the mech did a check on it.. he told me is the oil seal leaking.. and charge me $75 bucks. Is that the normal price?

    hello all..

    i just bought a spec II recently. and would like to have some form of servicing done. what are the things that i should do for servicing?

    current mileage stands at 94k.
    When touring, its usually the rider that give way first before the bike itself.

    got box got tour.

    wat happened on ur forks now is that water had seeped in through the dust covers and rusted the metal beneath the dust covers and hence it pops up. i think ur bike is always parked in the open and always kana rain? a fork servicing for ur 2 years bike should cost u abt +/-S$100.

    if u wan a recommended bike shop for fork service from me, i recommend K&T.

    went to the bike shop..cause they know i got this problem..they just took out the small casing at the left side..remove the sensor and the cable attach to it and just clear the water inside..than put back..actually quite easy can DIY too..

    but don know if you got the same problem with me cause they say my bike is the first got this problem..

    Question Bike can't start

    Hi Guys,
    i'm riding a S4 vtec 1
    first time encountered this problem. ride for about 40mins and then park at a multistorey carpark.
    10 mins later, decided to park my bike somewhere else but happen that my bike cannot start, dun know wat's the problem so decided to try later.
    After 45 mins, tried again, still cannot start.
    2 hours later, tried again, bike now able to start. don't think is the battery problem. Anyone know what's the problem or encounter this problem b4?

    1. Spark plug faulty
    2. Spark plug cap loose
    3. Choke pulled out
    and lastly, but highly unlikely as u said....
    4. Battery leaking voltage (something consuming the power, alarm)

    there can be a long list of possible areas to look into.
    for a start, let us knw if u:
    -can see the neutral light come on when u turn the ignition key
    -hear any cranking sound when u press the electric start button
    =[ Honda CBR150R ]=
    ....=[ R E P S O L ]=

    Did you wack your bike before you park? If you did then thats the prob. Air and petrol choked.

    Thanks for the reponse.
    during startup that time, the neutral light is on, the headlight is very bright.
    so dun think is the battery.

    when try power on the bike that time, initially there's the cranking sound.
    2nd time when i press, no more, change to a 'tick' sound.
    Thought it's gone case, luckly after 2 hours, bike able to start.

    Didnt really whack my bike hard, but when travel thru the expressway. got on the vtec.

    Even a weak battery will have no problem powering up all the lights. The electric starter is the single most battery draining device.

    Your description is consistent with a weak battery. the "clicking" sound is from the electric stater relay switching ON, and OFF.

    Next time you won't be so lucky, get the battery replaced and check if the bike is charging it sufficiently.

    sounds like a problem my pulsar has.

    after whacking the bike at high(?) speeds, the bike has trouble with e-start. first try i push the e-start, it whirs like its going to engage, but then it would growl like an electric kitchen blender. The e-start just isnt engaging.

    same problem plagues the YBR125s at my old work place.

    had to change the starter carbon to really get rid of the problem. didnt find it so much of a problem since my bike has a kick starter, but it would really suck to keep push starting your bike, yeah?

    when all else fails from electrical failure or overflow or whatnots, push-start will be your best friend. consult the nearest slope, or get a second party to push your bike. results may vary.

    After 45 mins, tried again, still cannot start.
    2 hours later, tried again, bike now able to start. don't think is the battery problem. Anyone know what's the problem or encounter this problem b4?

    so dun think is the battery.

    when try power on the bike that time, initially there's the cranking sound.
    2nd time when i press, no more, change to a 'tick' sound.
    Thought it's gone case, luckly after 2 hours, bike able to start.

    Didnt really whack my bike hard, but when travel thru the expressway. got on the vtec.

    ok, has taken down your no... thanks for the assistance.
    starter carbon is 2 metal strip with carbon installed inside the starter motor. the carbon will wear and tear due to cranking.
    this normally happens for bike 5 years and above.
    i had replaced mine when my bike is 8 years old.
    replacing them includes removing ur carbs and coolant hoses, a tedious job.

    hope my 2 cents info helps...

    yes that is so very true.. next time if you cant start your bike and you hear that clicking sound again, you can try knocking on the starter area, otherwise you might want to push start the bike..

    it's the carbon that will wear and tear, and at certain point you need to change it..

    as for my case, mech says that mine was carbon build up instead of carbon wear and tear.. heh.

    and i must agree too its a real tedious job, a very very tedious job to get the starter motor out..

    tank out, carbs out, coolant hose out, then to ther starter motor..

    btw, riding vtec 1 here, same prob as well.

    fixed and now crankin good.

    [A] Different bike shops charge different rates.
    Normally when oil seal is being replaced , engine oil will also be replaced.
    As a customer , you have every right to ask the mechanic the breakdown for the total bill incurred.

    [A] Have your fork oil seals replaced including the fork oil.

    They are more than willing to assist.

    [A] If im not wrong , there is a nut in the front center of the horn.
    Try 'play' with it first and hear if there is any difference.

    [A] In my opinion , if your bike is running fine , don't need to do any major servicing. Just have your normal servicing as and when due.
