1996 Suzuki RF400R from South Africa
Its got a bit of a noise in top gear, but according to the mechanic it is normal.
Other than that, my wife fell with the bike, but it only picked up a few scratches, which can be repaired.
Handles fantastic, sounds like a dream and the acceleration is nice and smooth. Looks like a big bike with all the benefits of a small bike.
My next bike would also be a RF, but a 600 or a 900.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I recently bought myself a Suzuki RF400. I absolutely adore this bike, but I think its fuel consumption is very high. I estimate it at about 9km/l; is this normal for this bike or is there something wrong with mine? I really hope someone can help.

Hi, I also have a RD400, I think you should be getting at least half more again... but you might be thrashing the... out of it LOL.
It is a great bike. Had mine for a year now. Been brill. I am now after a Kawi zx600r...
Take care and have fun!

Hi, I'm from Peru. Could someone send me a picture of the CDI (central digital igniter) of a Suzuki RF400R, where you can see the number indicating the item. Also a website where I can buy it.
You can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org... or Facebook: Dalton Pardave Facundo. Thanks.

Hey yeah, I have an RF400 too, although she's not going at the moment. I adore the bike, she's wicked to ride and reliable as, but yeah I found mine to be very thirsty as well... giving her regular services seemed to help a little LOL.

Hi, I've got the same, how do I remove the front seat on it? The battery is dead, I need to change it, how do I do it? Thanks.
