Hi Bill  I think Charlie would need to see the seat first to appraise If you can bring it over we can go to see him  In the mean time i will go and talk to him I think you would have to repair and powder coat the base then he can re upholster  Ross

CB350/400 / genuine parts
« on: February 05, 2020, 12:35:14 PM »
Hi All   i have just bought some carb clamps to airbox (4 ) for my cb400 f2 they are Black in colour  They are marked as genuine parts   But another label states Made In India   My question is pre 1978 did Honda source supplies from either China  Taiwan or India  The guy i bought these from is adamant they are genuine  But my thoughts were back in the day all parts were Made In Japan I don't Know if modern type bikes are using foreign sorted parts ???  All your thoughts appreciated   Cheers  Ross

Glad to Ash   Its because of this forum that you did me a favour   Plus I've had lots of help from experienced members who have put me right on a number of issues,  and to those i'd like to say thank you Ross

Thanks  Julie   It seemed logical but not certain due to the shapes being different I have fitted them to the carbs and they look right   Ref your carb screws Yes Gerben has fitted 12mm plus washer to mine   Cheers Ross

Just got my inlet rubbers back from Ash who has softened them Now I've come to fit them and noticed there are two different types ( didnt notice when taking them off  DOH ) Two marked 1&4 Two marked 2&3 Obviously to fit each cylinder   Question is are the numbers fitted uppermost on the corresponding cylinder  IE  cylinder No 1   mark 1 to top  mark 4 bottom  cylinder No2 2 to top  3  to bottom  ETC   Ive searched all service manuals and nothing on removing / refitting  Cheers Ross

All parts books I've seen list as 10mm  So assume no washer  Although think 12mm with washer should not cause a problem and may be even better   Ross

Wanted  ASAP  for my Honda cb400f2 1978  Air box to carb connecting rubbers complete with clamps, also the clamp from air box to air filter.  So if anybody has got a set squirrelled away that they are willing to swap for the obligatory beer vouchers   Please let me know   I have seen them on fleabay but complete with the air box which i don't want  Would prefer genuine rather than DS or CMS  etc   Cheers Ross

Hi Oggie  if you can't get a local shop to do it I have a mate who lives near Ferrybridge on the M62 He has most welding gear and i'm sure he would do it for you ( for a small fee) He only does it evenings / weekends  If this helps PM me and i will pass on his details Ross
