Honda CB400f part 15
| July 2005:
Summer holiday has arrived. Not for us, we are working hard. Many days have been put in the bike to finally make it work. A lot needed to be done.
The wiring needed some final attention and it should all come together nice in the headlight. Also some brackets and bits were powdercoated together with Don's DR600. We forgot about those parts earlier. The seat was a bit rusty so we cleaned that up and painted it black again. The secundary chain needed to be fixed tight, the exhaust system was added.
Of course it didn't start at once. The ignition coils were changed and it ran! After that we synchronised the carbs and went out. Later on we found out that the battery wasn't charged. The regulator was beyond repair and was replaced.
