I've managed to remove the black knob from the shaft using a heat gun, should that be necessary.

Hi All
 Does anyone have a speedo trip rewind knob for a cb400  that they are willing to part with  It is a push fit on splines Unfortunately had to distroy mine while doing a refurb and they are not listed as a spare Thanks  Ross

If you don't find one, I'm about to make a couple and could easily make another. They will, however, be made from Stainless and not ally...

Excellent plating. I bought a kit 15 years ago and have just unearthed it. If I can get my parts half as good as that, I'll be happy!

Thanks Ted. I have found some suitable stuff in my hoard of parts....

I think I have some oil resistant foam to make one with but if not, I'll PM you. Thanks, Matt

Is the part highlighted in the section of the parts diagram below a foam pad (or similar)? Nothing installed in my bike.....

I can only say that my local sprayer has a backlog of 6 to 9 months. 15 months, however, seems somewhat a lengthy wait.

That is a very nice looking bike and I suspect easy to handle. 80mpg at current fuel prices has to be a bonus!!

So much for those plugs being reliable! I thought the VX ones were meant to be one of the better plugs....

NGK, I suppose, would be the correct ones - DSS seem to be as good a value as anyone else. I think they were out of out of stock of the 2 & 3 red ones last week but that may have changed.

Ted, Thank you.  It was easier than I thought it would be and with the wheel removed and plastic mudguard out of the way, it was a fairly simple task to remove the box. Fortuitous really as there were a couple of things the PO has done that were a bit 'Heath Robinson'.  :o
It's in fair nick but required a bit of gentle persuasion here and there to get it all neat and ready for coating.

Thanks Ted. I was hoping not to keep dismantling the bike but removing those 2 items to make the job easy is worth it.
Hopefully it won't have to come out again!!

CB350/400 / Airbox removal!
« on: June 15, 2022, 05:58:07 PM »
I'm sure there is a technique to remove this over complicated contraption from the frame but for the life of me I can't see how.
I have it loose and both the air filter intake and the carb oval tube are removed as are all (?) bolts.

Anyone got any tips?

(BTW, I wanted to remove it as it is the only rusty part on the bike and I need to get some other bits powder coated. What seemed like a good idea at the time, has now escalated!!
