When someone local to us said they had this CBR400F for sale we had to go and have a look. It now has a new home and we need to make decisions on what work/renovations to do on it!

Based on the recent Mecum Las Vegas auction results you may want to keep it strictly factory stock.

Do you have any information of this model sold recently? We are in the U.K. so it is a Japanese import and none around to compare.

Is that your new ride, Irene? You'll be zipping around the backroads now! Nice find indeed
No Tom, another project for us but it will be Steve's ride as I don't like the riding position, he plans to ride it at Cadwell Park Race track in September. I much prefer my CB200 and Kawasaki Z400 for riding comfort. I am on the look out for a Kawasaki ER6 to give a more modern bike a try but will have to sell something else first! :-?

Can't blame you on the riding position, I don't care for it either. In this case, it has more to do with the seat position than the height of the bars... either way, I completely agree. At my age, I too prefer to be comfortable!

Well Steve has been busy sorting out the essentials on the CBR400F, which hasn't been easy with it being a Japanese import and a limited edition with only 5000 made.

New tyres fitted, correct paint for the white wheels, fork seals and new oil, brakes etc. Nothing is cheap so the cost is adding up. Part of the speedo cable fitment has broken off, it had gone brittle with age. As it is a bank holiday over here we will have to wait until Tuesday to get a replacement from one of the Specialist suppliers over here. Not having access to a parts catalogue for this particular model is making locating parts more difficult - but if it was easy, where would the fun in that be! :rolleyes:

Hi how are you getting on with the Honda nc17 ? I bought one got it stored at the moment
Welcome to the forum Greggyr2.

We haven't done much to it lately as we have been concentrating on the Honda CD185 and another Yamaha Fazer 600 we bought before Christmas. Steve has to stay at home at the moment and I am still working as I am with the NHS. He has been really busy in the garden last week and has started tidying up the garage and shed so he can get at the bikes and parts better.

Hopefully over the next week or so we can do an update of what has been done.

We would be interested to see some close up photos of your bike and a video of it running as well.

Here are a few we did of the NC17 last year.

Hi Tipu, we are by no means expert on the CBR400F. I do know someone in the UK who has 8 of these, he might be better to answer questions. His name is Gary Howarth and he is on Facebook.
