Hi Chippy, do you have a manual for the rd 400 G (with CDI and no points)? I have the wiring diagram for the rd400 , I suppose it will go for the G model, but I do not know if all measures, particularly BTDC, will be the same as those of the "C" model (the only manual I could obtain from the web). I have also bought a Haynes Manual, but it does not seem to cover my model.

I have seen on ebay some years ago an appendix to the factory manual that had a reference to the RD400G.



This model seems to have been sold in Australia, Asia and South America. I do not know whether changes between this RD400G and the E model are only cosmetic or if they involve other changes. My G model has CDI and the "RAMAIR" double head.



If anyone knows about the manual (appendix) for this model I would be grateful if he/she can tell me how to obtain it.

The RD350LC came to Canada in 1981 in White with blue graphics, they seem to be impossible to find in any kind of stock condition, they are all beat or tired beyond belief. In 1982 I think if my memory serves me correct they where black with red graphics, never seen one used all these years later, either did not sell well or all of them were beat on and destroyed.

I think they all became Rz"s in 1983?

Its always possible that it was a old stock C model that got registered late.



In 1975, I bought an old stock RD250A brand new for ?450 at the time the RD250B was the new model - it cost a lot more as well.
