Two stroke rocket ship..... Very fast for it's displacement...... Ride carefully until completely familiar with its idiosyncracies.....

Very fast - we used to hide from them on our 450's......
Great handling, but real "peaky" engines, like most 2-strokes of the era - little or no power till they come "on the pipe", then it kicks in with vengeance.

My RD400D is gonna be my end I recon, be it accidental or financial (on account of all the speed cameras popping up). I'm a mellow rider, but I've had the front wheel up a few times forgetting which bike I was on when the lights turn green :shock:

Get use to hippys and Gore diciples wagging their finger :twisted:

maybe if you roughed it up a little, some black paint, axe or sword blades sticking out, (the Mad Max look) they'd leave you alone :lol:

It works! It never hurt any RC engine as far as I know. They spin at over 20,000rpm's too (mine spun up to 23,000), so I'd imagine it wouldn't hurt any old jap bike... Hell, Honda's will run on cooking oil.. 3:00 mark -
:lol:

DO NOT put RC/Model airplane fuel in your Honda! ... It will "lunch" the engine...4oz in a tank-full was too much..... DON'T ASK how I know..... (A 14 year old on a "nitro" Honda S 90 should tell you all you need)........ :oops:

Of course, it's 10%-30% nitro-methane in most instances...

On the other hand, it WILL make a 350 Chevy run like it NEVER has before!! :shock: :lol: I once put over 2 gallons into around 5 gallons of regular LEADED fuel. Way back when....
