There are relatively cheap 466 kits available for the 400F through eBay.

Find the 400F lump, you will not be disappointed.
I'm going to eat your brains and gain your knowledge.

So I was looking online for a 400f engine.. and I came across 4.. 2 were stupid expensive and were missing things and then these too..

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1975-Honda-CB400F-CB400-CB-400-Super-Sport-engine-motor-/260980555686?hash=item3cc3a73fa6&item=260980555686&pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr#ht_654wt_944

and this one,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-CB400F-CB-400-F-Motor-Engine-1975-/370593264936?hash=item5649147528&item=370593264936&pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr#ht_500wt_965

I'm leaning towards the second one, which unfortuanately is more expensive. But it has all its covers and appears to have all electrics not rummaged through and wires are there. I priced some of the covers and electrics and it would cost me 55 for just the sprocket cover..

What do you guys think? I plan on going with electric ignition so should i just get the cheaper engine and hope someone has the covers later on?

I'm bumping this reply cause one of the motors ends soon I believe..

I have a hard time with eBay recently because of my phone........but I would get the one that the motor seems in better condition. Covers and wires and such can be found fairly easily, but a rebuild can cost big $$$.

Hope that helps......

Well I plan on rebuilding and putting over-sized pistons in it.. That's why I am asking. I figured after getting covers and parts missing off the cheaper one, I would be spending the same amount if not more finding parts and paying shipping.. So I think I'm going to get the better of the two.. which is more expensive. But I was looking at the cheaper one and it doesn't even have a starter on it and those run a hundred or more.. Do you know of the cheapest/best shipper that ships items like that Rich?
