I don't know anything about Seca 400's, but it should be located on the frame, most likely on the main frame tube.

Thanx everyone.

I had a Turbo Seca once. The insurance agent was thrilled, but the cops weren't. I sorta got caught going a little too fast. Damn, those things fly!

Monkey,
Wow! You should have hung on to that bike, they are pretty rare now! It might be able to fetch more than it was worth back then, at least. That was a really neat time in motorcycling history though.

I should have found a way to keep it, but Judge Old Fart gave me a choice. Either I could get rid of it and pay a $120 fine or keep it and pay $500, get put on probation and lose my license until I turned 21. (I was 19 at the time.) Like I said, I was going a little too fast.

M/man, I have the Kawasaki 750E1 Turbo. Now you want to talk about fast. It was the fastest of all the factory turbos.Best time tested by Jay Gleason was a 10.71@123 mph. The only bike that could stay with it was the V-MAX and 1150 Suzuki.The rest could forget it!

cobra427--What year is your bike? Got any pics to send my way? I never got a pink slip on my Turbo Seca, but I do know that there wasn't anyone within 50 or 60 miles that could beat me. I'd put it up against most of the new bikes, too. Now that I've grown up some I think I could handle a fast bike without attracting too much "attention". Of course, I'm not sure I'd even be in the market for a "fast" bike anymore. Just give me a good cruiser or a Wing.
