  1. Leaky gasket, throttle problems, smoke

    Motorcycle Repair
    I have a 1978 Honda CB400TII that inadvertently turned into a project bike. After a month if getting the engine apart and back together I finally started it and 3 things happened: 1: Oil started leaking from the gasket around the bottom of the cylinders. And not just a little. It was enough for...

    New Member Introductions
    Hey all! Newbie from NEPA, the lovely Pocono Mountains. Just bought my first bike and am in the process of customizing. She's a '78 Honda CB400t Hawk II with 3000 original miles (original everything, tires included!) I'm here for advice, helpful info, and a peek at some awesome bikes.

    Motorcycle Repair
    Forgive me if this is obvious to most of you. I've been slowly bringing a 1978 Honda CB400 Hawk II back to life, and I ordered a full engine gasket kit from Athena. In the gasket kit are a number of small green rubber boots/gaskets with a tiny coil spring around one end. They are about the...

  6. Second Bike: Honda CB400 or CBR400RR?

    First Bike / New Rider
    I've been riding my 50cc bike for 6 months and wish to upgrade to a more powerful bike. I know 2 other guys who have recently bought CBR400RRs and I've taken a short ride on the back of a CB400. I'm deciding which is a more reasonable bike for me to upgrade to, if to upgrade to at all. I ride...

    First Bike / New Rider
    I've planned a 5,000 mile motorcycle trip to go on for the full month of August using my 1978 Honda CB400 Hondamatic. I'm going to be taking back roads and will be taking it slow(maybe 250 miles a day), I also plan on picking up a passenger halfway through. Is this trip even possible with a...
