i got my cbr400rr aka the uncrashable 2 a while ago and while checking it over, i notice that it had become stuck on highbeam and wouldn't come off, unless i take the switch apart, firstly has anyone had this problem?

and secondly i cannot turn the lights on or off either yet my mates '91 blade lights can be? is it a years differents as that part of the switch is missing, not even put in, my year is a '94


and as ebay cannot produce a replavement nor can Dave Silver does anyone know if any of this bikes sisters have a replacement unit control that will fit?

Hi, not sure if you posted about this in another forum, which I answered?

Anyhow, first your switch maybe ok. I had the same problem. What it could be, if you take the switch apart you will see a small box with the Hi/Lo button. open this carefully as a spring will pop out, now there should be a small piece of bent metal, looking like half a swastika or oldie car starter handle shape, It may have come out and lying in the bottom so make sure this is in the correct position, it sits upright in a small plastic grove and connects to an upper piece. Dont confuse this pin with the small copper strip attached. Also try a little WD40 before you take the switch apart, that might work.

Your other query, yep my 94 (actually 31-12-93) NC29 is the same and I cannot turn the lights off either. Also its not a straight swap for an earlier version as far as I can gather. So you and I are stuck with it. If you ever put HID lights on you will need a Time Delay Relay, another story..

i think the left hand switch of a NC29 matches with a CBR150. Try to look for some suppliers in thailand, they sell CBR150 parts there.

on the other hand, you can do some conversion like what i did with my NC29. i used the left hand switch from a yamaha R6. but the on-off switch to the headlight will be gone and the passing switch too.

the convertion is not that difficult...

my project bike really spent me a lot of modification manhours, i have more time modifying it rather than actually riding with it. by the bike is ridden every 4 months only............:O
