Any stock UNBUTCHERED XR4 pipe qualifies as stealth. If that pipe is in original cond what you want for it?

I'm assuming it's stock... It still has the spark arrester screen in it. N16ht5 wants to trade... Gotta have something to stick in it's place unless I decide to part the whole bike out. Just got an 08 husqvarna sm610 and gotta figure out what I want to do with my xr (sell, part out, or keep)

I'm on the hunt for an xr400. Preferably street tagged and within a days drive back and forth from me. I'm watching the flea market here, and local Craig's list. If anyone sees anything, or knows of one, a PM would be great.

I have one that i want to sell. It is completely apart and getting restored.

Completely.

Cylinder bored for a JE 406 piston and HRC cam. I have a ton of spares so much so that you wont need any probably forever.

A long list... i could provide if needed. I am the original owner and took very good care of this bike.

You are welcome to take over the project. I have everything to finish and quite honestly could be back together in a weekend. I was just taking the motor out of the frame to paint the frame. Was going to be a winter project.

Bike is located about 4 hours from Cincinnati.

is that a whole TRX engine or just side case with appendage attached? I had heard the TRX didn't fit with out interference.

where did you mount battery?

imho - if your really need a damper ... then you are riding beyond the XR4 and should think about a different machine

I don't really need a damper, but the guys I ride with who don't really need one either, lover them. The #1 improvement they say is less deflection off or rocks and roots, the bike holds a line much better.

I am at the point of deciding if I want to dump some money into my xr 400 or juts leave good enough alone. I am really thinking about installing electric start , but my bike works so great know I am a little afraid of messing with the engine, especially since I have never messed with a bottom end before and have only done a top end on a yz 80 and cr 125 back in the day. I know I could do it, but its still scary.

I'm just getting done swapping in a 2000 TRX engine into a street-legal 2002 frame. Everything else is from my old '98 (like the old Johnny Cash song ).



The TRX4 and XR4 cases are just different enough to require engine mount modifications. The end result is the engine being tilted forward about a half-inch. This also requires some fabrication to the sub-frame's front muffler mount, and also the carb end of the airbox boot to make up for that half-inch.

Here's a write-up of the process, courtesy of Booger1: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=650272

I put my battery in the same location, but used a DRZ-400 battery and box, as it's a better fit between the plastic side plate and the rear wheel (long and slim. Like me. )

I used a complete TRX wiring harness, CDI box, and Regulator / Rectifier to avoid electrical nightmares resulting from XR bike / TRX engine mis-matches.





It's doable, but takes some work. Eagle Feather didn't hang 'Mad Scientist' on me for nothing...



It... is... ALIVE!!!


It starts and runs great, with 14.5 Volts DC when running . I haven't ridden it yet... waiting on new (longer) Motion Pro cables, since I already fitted taller bars and Rox Risers. The stock cables are too short now.

If a fellow simply had to keep his frame and mounts stock, you could disassemble both engines and put one back together with the TRX crank, flywheel, and starter clutch assembly in XR cases, with the TRX stator cover. Also, use the XR countershaft and clutch cover so you can keep your kickstarter. Also, you'll have to drill and tap the XR case for the starter motor mounts.

I'll be machining my own kickstart gear bushing so the XR gear will fit on the TRX countershaft. It's right handy having a lathe.

Then I'll fit the XR kick-start accoutrement and clutch cover.

I chose to modify the frame and keep the TRX engine unmodified and complete in order to swap in TRX engine parts as needed down the road. If I punch a holes in the cases and nuke the engine, or otherwise total out the powerplant, I can simply swap in another 1999+ TRX400EX engine. There are a few on eBay on any given day. Once in hand, plug-n-play in a few hours.
