Had the original 96 XR4 for two seasons and nearly 4k miles.

The Good;
Bullet proof, can't kill them. Its a Honda.
Good bike for entry level off road.
Lots of after market.
Excels in tight knarly slow technical riding.
Short wheel base makes for easy wheelies.
Easy to maintain.

The Bad:
Its a Honda.....
Heavy, why I never put a big tank on. Too much weight too high.
Suspension mods are a must! See Neil Hors or Slavens.
When its hot (and you will get it HOT) it can be real cranky to start. Know the starting procedure. TDC, hot start, choke ,half throttle etc. Learn it ,Live it.
Doesn't like to be pushed , I got chucked off this bike more trying to go fast then any other four bikes put together.

Enjoy.....
