Saving my 1978 Honda CB400A "Decaf" bike from a near fatal blow -- lower gasket blowout and huge oil leak ! (like, dumped a quart+ of oil in minutes while riding fast on highway at high temps). It was inadvertently overfilled with oil (my bad) and driven too hard (twin brother's not so good) combination that killed the Beast! Work with my twin brother (a very gifted self-and-internets-taught car and motorcycle moonlighting mechanic!), I as assistant especially for the entire...

I'm about to sell, with some sadness, my 1978 Honda CB400A "Hondamatic" motorcycle. I have one last problem with it -- that's been baffling me for over a year. When I consolidated the speedometer and "idiot lights" to a svelte new cafe racer style chrome LED-based single instrument, I found that its neutral light was always on , no matter what gear. So I finally figured out a clever (if I may say so) way through research to use the "proverbial $7 part" from...

If you've never changed your motorcycle's oil, it's surprisingly easy! I step through my bike on my 2nd oil change since buying it.

The front brake of my 1978 Honda CB400A (baby cafe racer -- AKA "decaf") went almost dead. Here, we fix it in about 30 minutes -- my first time doing more than just an oil change or electronic reworkings! 8-) We assume somehow my brake fluid has deteriorated/aged from viscous fluid to closer to water (this naturally happens over time) and/or somehow has taken in air (which will sack your brakes entirely). We open my brake master cylinder, inspect, flush clean brake fluid through...

My 1978 honda "hondamatic" CB400A cafe racer modified bike project. The "A" is for automatic (a clutch-less 2 speed "low" and "high" geared bike), so I named her "decaf". My first/primary goal is to remove the ridiculously large/lame instrument section into a single smaller combined speedo/odometer/"idiot lights" chrome single instrument, and relocate the key/ignition. For me, this is kinda ambitious! But fun to learn and customize...
