The 400's simply hard to beat. It's roughly the size and weight of an XR250, but with a huge engine. I call it the big-block 250. What's not to like?

That happened with the new bars / risers setup I did last year. The engine died every time I made a hard left. Turns out the de-comp cable was a bit short. A re-route fixed it.
