Built only in 1989 and 1990. Apparently in Japan there is/was some weird licensing/insurance jump at 400cc, so this guy is 399cc with lots of go. Redline is 13,500 RPM!

Already done modifications:

  • braided steel brake lines
  • front fork from F2
  • larger back tire
  • 49 state head
  • jetting (actually not sure, but looks like there's the remains of a kit in my box of stuff)
  • Chafong clip-ons
  • Mtec headlight bulb replacement (brighter but could be brighter still)
  • new mirrors

Intended modifications:

  • custom sheet metal chain guard

Maybe modifications:

  • brake light modulator
  • Luxeon brake lights
  • Luxeon running lights
  • reflective tape on forks and side panels
  • louder exhaust (ideally louder at low rpms, quieter at high rpms)
