Hello all and good day/evening to you!

I am new to this forum and am proud to be a member of this community. I hope I get the chance to give back what I am able to receive from here. :) I just bought a 2009 Honda CB 400 Super Four Revo with only 7,000 kilometers on the clock based on how many people have fallen in love with this motorcycle all over the world! I currently live in Vietnam where parts for "bigger" moto bikes are quite limited. I can buy parts in Hanoi near me, however the shops are very expensive. I realize this is just how the ball bounces and I can accept that to some extent. I do have a couple questions however if I may.

 

Firstly, does anyone know of any good websites I can order parts from? Websites some of you have had success with? I have tried searching online, however it really has gotten frustrating has the year for my bike is generally never included in what's available. I would really like to buy basic parts online from the comfort of my own home if possible. I don't mind paying extra for international shipping. :)

 

Second, I would be more than grateful to know what previous years are more or less compatible with a 2008/2009. Basically all of the parts I see online have a cut off year of 1996 etc...years in the 90's. I have spend countless hours trying to figure this stuff out and get nowhere. My girlfriend I am sure is growing tired playing Bejewled as I scour the internet before going to bed. Hahaha. Thanks in advance for all of your help!

 

Best Regards

Brandon :)

Hello all.

 

I've recently decided to go get my class 2A and i would like to purchase a CB400 before next Chinese New Year.

 

I was wondering what will the insurance price be for a newly rider without any expierence for a Class 24 CB400?

And also what other cost i must look out for in order to prepare some spending budget on hand.

 

Thank You.

depending what part you look for, you can find some common parts on aliexpress.com. If you have a Chinese connection, you can order from taobao.com which has more parts and cheaper. If you want OEM japanese parts and accessories, you can visit webike.net, which is very expensive, but quality parts

Anyone having this same issue before can advise?

 

Am riding spec 3, when moving off gear 1 sometimes barely moving, then need to throttle more but after 1-2 seconds it becomes normal again and there is this slight surge before i close throttle and ride normally again.

 

It doesnt happen all the time.

 

I realized that if i throttle slightly before moving off with a slighlty higher rev, there is no such issues.

 

I understand that all our own riding styles are different but im that kind that (when riding normally on most days) prefers to release a little clutch and roll before throttle.

 

Any advice guys? - thanks!!! :)

Dear All CB400 bros, I would like to seek your advice on some repair related matters for my CB400 Version S.

 

I just took over a 1998 Version S from my relative. He purely uses it for work and doesnt really take too much care of his bike. I have riden a Version S long long time ago but I have not been riding for a while and need your advice on some repair matters.

 

1. RPM is hunting whilst idling - was told by shop that washing and tuning the carburetor might solve the problem but Im not too sure. I am ok to do the washing and tuning but just not sure if hunting can be solved this way?

 

2. Suspension is too soft and bouncy, Shop told me that I can service it but its about 300. I was thinking might as well but a second hand showa from Carousell and install instead? By the way, can a Spec 1-3 suspension fit on a version S?

 

3. Handle bar is vibrating at high speed, no issues with alignment. Shop says must change steering cone. Will this solve the problem?

 

4. I would like to check if there is any shops in JB that does Super 4 as I go in and out quite often. I know there are not many shops that do bigger bikes in JB but i would like some bros to give me any shops that can do the interior of the bike? Some bros recommended a shop by the name of Hou Heng at Ah Gua Lane. Not sure if shop still exists?

 

5. Also what to check, which shop in Singapore is recommended for Super 4 repairs and carry 2nd hand parts for version S? Ah Pek recommended Planet Motor which must be good since its recommended by Ah pek but do you guys know any other shops that I can go to?

 

Sorry for some noob questions but your assistance is greatly appreciated. Not sure if there are any non-vtec gatherings currently...

Hi Guys,

 

My friend is coming to Singapore from overseas for Christmas holiday.

I would like to take him to a few days ride through west Malaysia (KL-Penang).

He's experienced rider (16+ years) and have an unlimited international license.

 

Can you give me an idea where i can rent a bike for him to rent for such a trip?

Do you know any rental shops in JB?

2) if u do ride the bike long or short term....you can get aftermarket shocks like bitubo is good enuff.... saw on unique website they selling for 880 with gst for a twin shock which is preload and rebound adjustable and sell off your showa for $300 plus......

on the other hand...if you do service ur shock which may cost around $300....or u may go for second hand spec 1 which may cost around the same but you do not know how heavily it has been used......both are still basic with just preload....

I had personally rode on a s4 w a bitubo set for 5 years always with side boxes and big box and surprisingly with the more than 200k km mileage i had on it ..it felt very stable and non bouncy especially in corners....supposedly shocks have to be serviced every 20k km and i didnt as its still performed great....

 

3) perhaps you can change to heavier handle bar ends and also change your grips to the bmw type....can get at m technic or the performance motors...

I ride at 70km/hr only...please please dont blow2 at me or overtake me dangerously....wait i change into Incredible Hulk n dont know why my little baby bike will always be ahead of u if u do that

Hi guys! Looking to get input from those who have owned a Revo or is still owning one. I'm thinking of getting a new Revo and was wondering if it's a recommended bike for the long run. Is it too costly to maintain (FC, servicing) for it's engine capacity or it is not too bad at all?

 

I know affordability is subjective and it depends on each individual but I'm just wondering in general is it fine. Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

I have gotten a 1998 super four and need help identifying what parts the previous owner has used. At a guess it has a cbr600 rim and they have used a cbr250rr mc19 sprocket carrier hub. The cbr250 hub doesn't fit perfect but it works ok.

I'm happy to swap the hub with a different one if anyone knows of a better option?

This is the most detailed cb400sf forum on the net so looking forwarded to leaning from you guys.

      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!
