  1. Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hello y'all First time on this forum. I just picked up my first motorcycle (a 1981 CM 400E) and I want to build a simple ratty bobber out of it. I plan on keeping the stock air box but the exhaust is destroyed on this thing from the mufflers back. I'm planning on simply putting turn downs where...
  2. Project Logs
    I bought almost dead (if not completely) CM400C 1981 for $400. Odometer claim it has 32k miles, but the speedometer cable was broken so I suspect it might be much higher. Quite a big challenge for me as it is my very first project. The goal of this project is: 1) To make it run. 2) To make it...

    From barn find to beauty. This was and is a beautiful example of a 81 CM400E. Seller is only the 3rd owner and the oprevious owner left this bike to die after putting ONLY 7,700km (4,800mi) on it. Bike went through a frame-off restoration, fully repainted, top-end redone, and no detail missed...

    Just bought a Honda CM400T. Great looking bike. Having trouble getting a UK registration for it from DVLA at the moment, but hope to be out and about soon. Seems smooth. Just sold a Superdream I was very happy with, can't believe the superior build of the 400. Anyone else find the rear...

  7. Electrical Discussion
    Hello, First of all sorry in advance for my bad English I'm from Germany and not really into posting on forums :) I have signed up to this forum because I have a weird issue with my Dads '81 CM400T which is really annoying and I don't know how to solve it. After pretty much standing still for...
  8. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I didn't do a keyword search but figured you guys might be able to help me on the best aftermarket or simply replacement carbs purchasable. What's a good site or seller that would ship to me? I have about 250-300$ to work with and am looking to install it asap. TIA

    Haha well I decided to drive 2 hours to Austin Texas to pick up a bare bones 79 Honda cm400 frame is chopped, doesn’t run, no instrument cluster, leaking forks, no battery the guy converted it into a capacitor. That’s just scratching the surface. I’ve never worked on a bike before but if anyone...
  10. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    So my buddy bought a 81 cm400 custom for cheap, didn’t run. We figured it was carb. So we cleaned the carb and did a rebuild. Starts up fine but revs kinda crappy. First time for both of us rebuilding a carb. When you ride the bike it seems to not have much get up and go with any sort of load on...

    Hello. I am new to the site, but I have already found it helpful. Thanks. I am on my 2nd project bike, 1981 CM400c. It was in fairly good shape and running well, but not maintained or cleaned very well. I am doing a lot of work and painting. Hopefully, I will get it running even better than...
  12. Miscellaneous Discussion
    So I just recently purchased a 1981 CB400. The bike did not have a title when I got it, and being new to honda street bike I took the sellers word. I called my local dmv to make sure it was not reported stolen and it checked out ok. That being said I am having conflicting vin results. My dmv and...
  13. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    So, super new to moto wrenching (I've been a bicycle mechanic for years, so I am mechanically inclined, but moto is a whole new bag of worms). Looking to better understand what to look for in buying a stainless braided front brake line. I have no idea what's compatible with what years/models...
  14. Engine Discussion
    Hi Everyone, I have a nice little CM400 that I recently tuned up, adjusted valves, changed gasket and adjusted cam chain tension. I may have made a mistake at some point because it seems that the tensioner bolt went back inside the engine too much and now it is too short to put the nut onto...

    Hello everyone, I’m from Vancouver, BC Canada. Pleasure to meet you all! I just bought a 1981 Honda cm400t, it was a project bike for the past two previous owners. Which means that it has got some work that needs to be done on it. I found hondatwins while I was searching for resources to learn...
  17. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Anyone find a set of compatible aftermarket air intake boots (rubber tube between carburetor and airbox) that fits either a CM400A and/or CM450A with stock carbs and airbox? Honda sold 'em with the airbox on these bikes, which means no separate part number for me to search. Apologies if this...

    Hello everyone! I am new to the forums, and motorcycles in general. I gained my licence a few months back and bought a CM400T.At the time it was riding fine after I bought a new battery and changed all the oil out, besides a loud ticking noice, what I assumed were the valves. However, my father...
