  2. Cm400a idles perfect, but engine cuts when you shift to first?

    Electrical Discussion
    Sorry but I am having trouble understanding your problem from the post. On the A model the change switch transistor acts as a switch . When the bike is in neutral the transistor is on.

I had the cylinder milled to level for the gasket.I didnt check it but maybe the cm 400 sleeve top ring was smaller than the cb 400 sleeve. When I installed it it sat a little...
