experienced trustworthy dealer or mechanic for engine overhaul

Post by vfrnc30 »

Hello everybody,

I bought an NS400R some time ago and I am new on this forum and glad to become a part of this community!
Since the bike has 30T km on the tacho and since I don't know the history of the bike, I would like to have the engine throughly checked and overhaul it if needed.
Now the issue is that I am living in Austria and that around here I do not find any dealership or mechanic that has experience with this engine.
And although of course most of you are from the UK, I was hoping that somebody on here could give me a good address anywhere in Germany, Austria or Belgium from a dealership or mechanic that has experience with these engines and that is trustworthy.

Looking forward to any help I can get here and many thanks in advance!!

Kind regards,
Kristof

Hello and welcome Kristof.

There are a few European outlets that deal with this bike and other Honda 2 stroke machines of the era.

What do you require for the engine, have you turned it over or gone further and taken some things apart ?

HI Channel,

Many thanks for your reply!
I haven't done anything yet on the engine, and it is basically running fine standing still. I haven't driven the bike yet as I haven't registered it yet. And I first want to put the whole bike into perfect working condition before I do so.
Therefore I would like to have the engine fully checked by somebody that knows these things...

Hi Kristof,

Maybe the info below can help you connect with the right people.

Robert Ertl (was Moto2/3 mechanic for Kiefer Racing) is close to Austria (East of Munich)
https://www.facebook.com/Ertl-Tuning-Ra ... e_internal

Probably the biggest German NS400R enthousiast Frank Daum (http://www.ig-ns400r.de/Praxis/Umbauten/Daum-2.htm)
Not sure how active he's nowadays, but maybe you can find his contact details.

Or maybe one of the General German 2-stroke forums can help you further:

Here, they are also looking for "Spezialist"
