    Project basket case

    Though I'd start a new thread and keep all the developments of this resto in one place. As some of you may know I recently acquired a basket case of a 400 Bros. 50k kms on the clock, mostly all there apart from the seat/seat cowl (ill be making something up in due course.)
    I've quickly stripped it down and am going through it piece by piece, cleaning components up as I go and getting a parts list together ready to put it all back together.

    Aside from the usual bearings and other wear items, it's generally in good, If a bit mucky, order.

    However, I've come across my first bit of obvious previous owner(s) ham-fisted maintenance in the form of a broken clutch pressure plate and butchered clutch nut.

    The clutch springs are out of spec and from what I can tell I'm missing an anti judder spring and the friction plates all seem to be the same (I gather there should be 3 different types in the stack?)

    So there is some work to do here. If anyone has a spare clutch pressure plate in the UK, please give me a shout

        Hard to tell from the smaller photos but it looks like before you get to far along you may want to replace that output shaft. Looks like a ton of wear on the splines
        88 Blue Hawk GT - Under construction but rideable (guest approved)
        89 BlackHawk 2.0 - On the lift and being assembled
        90 Hawk GT (color as to yet be determined) - Still on the shelf in crates

          Nah, it's all in good condition. No play, just a tiny bit of surface corrosion which I've since cleaned up. Sprocket was in good condition too.
