Hey everyone, my name is Richey and my cousin and I dug out our grandfathers old CM400e out of the shed after sitting for 20ish years. It’s got just under 6000 original miles on it and we’re looking to rebuild it dude to some sentimental value we have with it. I’m guessing the last time it was was in 96. The overall shape of the bike is rusty and corroded but it looks like everything is here. No major dents in the tank or major physical damage. Anyone have any good websites for parts for the rebuild? Any insite with these would be awesome! Thanks for lookin!

So first first before anything...

... change the oil. I recommend Shell Rotella t6 ... but dont kick it over and stir up all that gross sludge.

New plugs and starter fluid and i bet it fires...

As for parts, i love 4into1.com ...ive spent a ton of money there and never been disapointed.
