I was absolutely lusting after that thing. I just didn't have the cash while it was up for sale. Ended up with a Husky TR650, so it didn't end too badly for me. I still loved that Ninja though.

That is not a dual sport...

That XS is an OMNI sport!

Really a great bike and pictures.

Now you need pictures of it ice racing and crossing the Baja 1000 finish line.

Wow! You have gotten your money's worth from that bike like no other! What forks are using for the dual sport version?

The forks/triples are from a 1989 YZ250 Yamaha.I pulled them apart and cleaned a bunch of grunge out of them.I internally lowered them 3 1/2" and put a new seal/dust wiper kit in.Fork tubes have excellent chrome .

What type of rear shocks should I put on CB400N '84 to get enduro-like behavior ? Something like Triumph Scramblers or like...

Just get quality shocks that are about an inch longer than the originals.Where the shock mounts will make the ride higher and give more travel to the swing arm and rear wheel.

Yes make sure the shocks are not just an inch longer but travel an inch further.
Any reputable brand should do or buy some second hand of a dirt bike of appropriate size.

Progressive will probably be the cheaper deal but Hagon and Works will have a fully adjustable fully customize set up to your specs and the price will reflect it.
