Hello Everyone Dangerous Brian here.

What a great forum, I recently decided to design tune and build my own cafe racer, I have no clue as this is my first time however fortunately I have a full workshop with tools at my disposal (for practice) and a good friend willing to teach me how to tune and improve the engine and pay him less as I will do the work as opposed to paying him to do it we shall call him (Mr Nice Guy).

First things first I have no bike but will be looking at a Honda CB of any size to start so anyone in Germany with this or similar bike 70's 80's give me a shout Im all ears (dangerous brian joke)

I have yet to try the search function as I have not started but be assured I will be trying this before posting any Noobie crap, I may be new but I'm not green around the ears so no worries there.

All in all I have been scouring every bit of info tips and tricks I can find on the internet and keep coming back here to (which is awesome) to mainly prepare me for when buying a bike so I can already start building a budget in my head when viewing the bike and get a feel for what it will need.

Also as I am in Germany anyone needing tools or a place to work and wants to help me with my bike are welcome to come down and use the space.

Can anyone help!!

I have bought a gsx400e (1985) GK53C. however its a german registered bike and rumour has it this bike was sold restricted to 27hp as aa german learner bike as opposed to the normal 42hp when sold elsewhere.

Does anyone know where the restriction is and how to set it back to at least its original state or more?? Will changing the CDI IGNITOR for a derestrcited version have anythign to do with it??

I have searched all the forum and there really is nothing on this that i can find.

Thanks for any help, much appreciated.

Could be an easy fix. Carb to head rubbers can be restricted. Check the carb sliders open fully, if not carb tops could be restricted with washers.
