Hi Folks

 

I bought a 3rd party CB400 windshield from AliExpress. It doesn't come with any instructions and after googling, I still can't find any instructions on how it can be installed on my Revo. Does anyone have any idea?

 

It's meant to be installed onto the headlight brackets. I'm going to my bike now to see if I can figure it out, but much appreciated if anyone has any info on this.

 

 

The windshield is like this:

Thanks folks!

unfortunately most work shops want you to change parts without going to the root of the problem......

you can try Ah Chong from planet.....I usually go to him to double confirm my suspicions if any problems occur and at least he is honest....

 

what i listed is something like a check list to go tru which you can do on your own before going to a bike shop....so at least narrow down the possibilities....

Hi all,

 

Need some help here.

 

I had recently changed a new rear brake disc and pads.

When i am braking, my bike jerking.

 

When i go slower, i step and hold on the rear brake. The feeling is like brake and no brake, brake and no brake, brake and no brake.. Even i hold on to the brake...

 

When i go back to the mechanic, he say is normal for new brake disc.

 

Can anybody advise if it is true?

 

Thanks.

Need Help/advise From S4 riders.

Hi I need advise from you bros.

My super 4 vtec 1 always can't start when cold. (maybe you can charge the battery using a charger and also to sand paper the contacts of your battery.may have goey things at the red wire...)free if you know the right pple for help...

 

Always need to keep the side stand and clutch in. (perhaps something wrong the small square thingie under your clutch lever.cut and connect the two wires leading to your clutch square thingie and u dont have to clutch in next time to start ur motorbike..you can even throw away the square thingie....as for your side stand switch...perhaps you can go to ur fav motodiam to troubleshoot....) free if you diy yourself

 

Neutral light is on and gear is on neutral.

After travelling and stopping, Neutral loght is gone but gear is on neutral.(maybe you can hit ur gear pedal harder to go to gear 1....got clunk sound for s4....den try to move off....if you are taking a longer time to pick up speed or at 5th gear ur speed seems slow...perhaps your fiber clutch plates need changing...)amount depends....i have no idea....

 

.on the other hand ..sometimes more pple got problem going to neutral from gear 1 ......if you are seeing your neutral light not on when you are in neutral....do this a few times from gear 1 to neutral n vice versa but your neutral light still not on.....perhaps most likely you can buy a T5 Bulb to change it yourself....cheers hope the above help....Price wise can get at sim lim square or ebay...hope tis helps.

 

What's the problem please? and how much estimate? Need to standby $$$

 

Thanks in advance

Hi there all you guys, and thanks for reading what I think its my first post

the other day riding arround London city I noticed that the bike after 20-30 minutes working with no issue(my daily commutte to work is 10 minutes ride), starts the problem if I let the iddle down in traffic lights the bike stops. the first thing I thought was missing coolant, after check the coolant level was nice I went yesterday for a ride because was so sunny. after a while in the motorway arround 80mph start to happen the same: start to feel lack of power when twisting the throttle so I pulled over. after a while when the bike cools down start again ,I also got a DRZ400SM wich I blowed the cilinder head gasket because it was leaking coolant. with the Honda cb 400 sf wasnt the case, the whole radiator was hot and the cooling system works fine and the oil still got oil colour, I mean its not mixed with water. The guy of the brakdown recovery says that its something dirty in the carbs because often happens to him doing motocros. but 2 months ago I ultrasonically cleaned the carbs and new gasket set, carbs shouldn´t be the problem.

Ive got laser termometer and reads abrout 59º on the clutch case,95º on the head cilinder and 90º radiator

The sympthoms are like overheating like when you run out of coolant.

This morning it tooks a bit longer than usual to start with the choke on, once started the bike was pulling nice and smooth again.

did this happen to any of you guys. so if you have any clue of whats happening please tell me about.

I left here a picture of my baby last year at Donington Park during the World SBK UK round. I love my 400 and I need it ready for miles because I´m going this june to the Isle of Mann to watch TT races and she needs take me to the island

 

thanks so much for reading.

I mean the temperature for me its nice, this engine likes to work warm. I don´t wanna give the reason to the recovery guy because i left the carbs like new, I´m thinking on termostat not opening at all or any scale or obstruction in the inner holes of the cilinder. Otherwise I´ve never seen a red light of high temperature either fan working.

With the absurdly high COE now (2016 April) and the fact that many spec 3 are at their 10year mark. I am between buying a used spec 2 with coe ard 2022ish or spec 3 with coe ard 2025ish for just ard 3k more. My main concern is problems with bike age, but from the looks of it, some of the spec 3 on the market have been used much more than spec 2. There was one guy selling a spec 3 with 270k on it!! That bike must have been all the way up to China. Anyways, I would just like to hear from you guys with some advice on the reliability between these two machines as they are pretty old and which is an overall better bike to own and experience. I plan to take the bike to thailand one day with my buddies. Cheers! : )

Hi all, I need some help here regarding cb400 revo. There is this "eee" sound coming out from the engine when idling even when high speed riding. This sound came out only recently but there is no changes to the engine setup recently.

 

Any 1 encountered similar problem and able to advise in this?

      Hi all, sorry if I posted in the wrong forum category.

      I am relatively new rider, and my bike's COE ends in May. The bike is eligible for the $3500 NEA rebate as well.
      As I have never done it before, can someone guide me through the process? Also, are there any specific important things to look out for
      in case I get cheated or get into trouble etc. 

      Thanks!

      The Honda ADV150 has a built-in power cut in the stock ECU.
      Most ADV150 riders would have experience this power cut when approaching speeds of 110km/h-120km/h shown on the speedometer.
      This is entirely normal as is what is referred to as a speed / power cut to protect the engine and the other components of the ADV150 as a Class 2B scooter is not made to go much faster than that.
      There is a workaround to this power cut (if so you wish) and that would be changing to an aftermarket ECU that does not have this built-in power cut.
      If you want to remove this power cut, it will void your original manufacturer warranty is is highly NOT recommended, it is also unsafe for the motorcycle and the rider.

      Looks pretty good, probably will look even better on the white version!

      Thanks to bro Fadli for the picture. Took him a lot of time, elbow grease as well as thinner to remove all the stickers.
      Has anyone else tried this one their ADV150? Looking forward to seeing a white unit that has its decals removed.

      Honda gives its CB1000R naked some love for 2021 with a sophisticated blacked-out look and a few choice upgrades. The bike will be available this May starting at S$TBC. Although it will be available to dealers in May, it doesn't mean you will be able to get one in May however. We must apologise in advance as we understand from Boon Siew Honda that they will not be bringing in the Black Edition of the Honda CB1000R until the current 2020 models have been sold out - and who knows how long that would take!

      The new styling gives the machine its 2021 moniker, the CB1000R Black Edition, and touches just about every visible part of the bike. Honda used black plating and black anodizing techniques on the subframe, swingarm pivot plates, exhaust system, front suspension, and handlebar clamp among numerous other places.

      In addition to the bold new colorway, the CB1000R gets a new three-level quickshifter for clutchless upshifts. A slip/assist clutch smooths out wheel hop on hard downshifts.
      Honda fitted a new 5-inch TFT instrument panel to the bike also.

      The CB1000R Black Edition is powered by a 998cc inline-four fit with ride-by-wire and four ride modes. Honda Selectable Torque Control is included to help dial performance in a variety of conditions. It utilizes a steel backbone frame suspended by a Showa SFF Big Piston fork, fully adjustable, and a Showa shock with spring preload and rebound damping adjustability. Four-piston radial-mount calipers grip two full-floating 310mm discs at the front while a single-piston caliper and 256mm disc handle braking duties at the back.

      Honda utilizes LED lighting throughout, highlighted by a classic round headlight that emphasizes the brand’s Neo-Sports Café aesthetic, of which the CB1000R is a hallmark example. Other premium design features include a flangeless fuel tank, aluminum alloy detailing, a new rear splash guard that mounts directly to the swingarm, and a passenger seat cover.

      The only available colorway for 2021 will be, you guessed it, Graphite Black.
      2021 Honda CB1000R Black Edition Technical Specifications and Price
      Price: S$TBC Engine: 998cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled inline-four; 4 valves/cyl.

      Honda is all set to launch the made-in-India Honda CB350 motorcycle in Japan and other Asian markets as the Honda GB350 Basic Roadster.
      Honda has managed to surprise enthusiasts by launching a India-manufactured premium retro-styled motorcycle late last year as most of its core line of motorcycles are manufactured in Japan. The new Honda GB350 has found lots of takers despite limited availability thanks to its retro classic looks, a crispy exhaust thump and more importantly a powerful performance. Could riders actually be looking towards more no-frills motorcycles that are at the lower end of the pricing spectrum?

      Now, the Japanese manufacturer is planning to launch this bike in other markets around Asia very soon. According to a Japanese magazine, Honda will launch the classic roadster in Japan first and rechristened it as GB350. Made in India – Exported to Japan, Honda has already showcased the motorcycle in Japan and we expect it to be making its rounds to other Asia markets in the near future.
      The GB350 when launched, is already BS6 compliant which is equivalent to Euro 5 emission norms. This is good news as all new motorcycles coming into Singapore would need to adhere to Euro 5 emissions or risk not being able to be on the roads after a few years (remember the NEA debacle?). Hence, Honda wouldn’t have to invest further to upgrade the engine’s emission standards. It is also equipped with ABS as standard in its based model spec, which is very helpful as this is a powerful Class 2A bike that would need up-to-par stopping power. It is highly likely that the Japan-spec GB350 will be the model that is exported overseas.

      While earlier reports indicated that in Japan, the GB350 will cost around JPY 550,000 to JPY 600,000, the latest reports suggest that it would cost around JPY 499,000 instead, which comes in at a lower price than initially expected. Exact prices will be announced soon, once it is launched, and the price is Singapore is dependent on many factors such as COE and road taxes so we'll just have to wait for the official word from Boon Siew Honda.

      The bike is launched as a challenge to Royal Enfield’s 350cc retro segment which currently holds a significant market share is various other countries and could also be why Honda has launched this GB350 as a direct competitor. Also similar to the Royal Enfield, the GB350 comes equipped sparingly and does not even have a digital dash like most motorcycles from 2021 but instead just has a simple analog gauge.

      Initial sales numbers of the GB350 are promising, and it has the potential to disrupt Royal Enfield’s monopoly. Coming to its powertrain, it is powered by a 348cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which generates 21 bhp at 5500 rpm and a peak torque of 30 Nm at 3000 rpm. Hardware equipped will also remain similar to the Japanese model which consists of telescopic forks at front and dual shock absorbers at rear. Anchorage duties will be handled by disc brakes on both ends.
      What do you think of the Honda GB350? Do you think there is a market within Singapore for a no-frills retro roadster motorcycle? Let us know in the comments section below!
      P.S. Boon Siew please bring this Honda GB350 into Singapore!
