I enjoy the progress you are making on that nice looking CB400F strynboen;it has nice paint and graphics  8)
 Good Job on the headlight and rear sig./taillight bracket modification also.I'm doing the same thing to my rear taillight mount bracket but moving the signals(they will be separate rubber mounted ones mounted directly to the taillight bracket after I weld some reinforcing plates onto the sides of the taillight bracket)down a little closer to the number plate.I am also doing it to give me clearance for luggage rack.

Thats a very long ride on a bike you just bought! Like really! But an adventure is always fun!

I like the cb400f as stock. That's i how i keep mine. No need to cafe it.

*Got the exhaust polished nicely and got myself a sidecover this year!

Ping MoMo on the site, he's done several 400/4s and knows them well. Maybe he can help you trouble shoot the issues and offer suggestions?
