  • New member with a bros

    Hello all, my name is Konstantinos, i am a new.member with a bros 400 from Greece. I have this bike for 4 months until now and we clocked 4000 km together.It's my first bike.and actually the reason why i started riding. Some years ago i saw one in the streer and i fell in love with her so i saved some money and bought her. I am here to exchange ideas and learn new things about this bike. I plan to keep her for a looong long time so i am interested in improving her in terms of suspension, brakes and motor.

      Welcome aboard. I am very happy with the braking improvement provided by the EBC Pro-Lite full floating front rotor and EBC HH pads. An easy upgrade, and it slightly reduces weight.

                Chain being tight can ruin your drive shaft splines....be very careful not to make it too tight. We have eyes for the chain tightness....ask every proper Hawkers..they all know

                  Hey, welcome aboard! There are a couple more greeks here, I believe. Regarding the suspension improvements, look up the popular CBR600F2/3 fork internals mod. You 'll have to spend some money for a new rear shock too, though. Front brake is powerful enough when properly maintained.

                    "Drive Shaft" ? We have one of those I didn't even know about all these years?

                    Oh you mean ( Output Shaft ) Superdukerider just busting your balls ... have a great day !

                            Mr. Coogan ... normally new members start a new post ... you may get overlooked at the tail of someone elseís post here. I donít recall any Kenyan Hawkers before ... are you in Nairobi?
