    ---------------------------------
    I love bikes so much, I joined this forum for the 1980 CM400T I bought for my girlfriend. Ha!

    Finished this project last night. A few notes to add...

    1. Make sure to take your time removing the clutch cover bolts, I found its pretty easy to snap one off the hard way. Consider replacing the bolts with Alloyboltz kit from eBay and use anti-seize.

    2. Make sure to clean all the old gasket material off! If you don't it will leak, I guarantee it!

    3. When you have the clutch cover off make sure you don't lose or forgot to put the clutch lifter back in. The clutch will not work without this piece.

    4. Consider switching bulbs out to LEDs.

    Here is the finished product

    This isn't exactly the cheapest upgrade:

    Clutch cover - $30
    Tach - $20
    New decals for gauges - $30
    Tach cable - $15
    Bolt kit - $25
    Gasket - $15
    LEDS - $15
    New oil - $25

    I'm glad I did it and it was a fun project. If anyone has questions please feel free to contact me and maybe I can help.

    Turned out nice. If you want, I have the .pdf files of the templates for the gaskets to make your own. Pm your email address if you want them. (Alternator cover gasket, right cover gasket, and cylinder base gasket.)

    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    Dime City is one source
    Expand you search on EBay to include the CB400T, CM 400/450, CB450T and CB450SC. They all run the same ratio and look almost the same year to year
