Honda CB400f part 17
| May 2006:
Some more riding and changing oil the suprise was that one screw in the carter didn't hold anymore. A helicoils is needed now to keep most oil in the carter. I have found another leak at the gear lever, but it only sweats a little. I will change that gasket later.
Also the GS750 Koni's are much too heavy for the bike. It rides a bit like a hardtail now, so I am looking for replacements.
Also the front tyre that was mounted by a bikeshop in Best appeared to be much too wide and scraped on the fender. That, and the lack of noticing the wheel had a tiny height dent had me suprised. I went to Haan Wheels where I had the wheel respoked and to anoter tyre-center for a BT-45 and it rides excellent this time!
|the winding didn't stick to the bike||professional height to work under|

In September the front wheel was respoked and re-rubbered due to bad advice earlier by a bikeshop. Good thing is that the RVS spokes on the front wheel match those of the rear. And the better handling with the smaller BT45 is impressive.

|RVS Spokes and BT45 90/90-19||Yup, this is the real difference|
