If I upgrade to the Hot Cam, can I leave it out? I found the spring but I think the plunger fell out somewhere between my bike and the truck when I took the parts to my shop to clean them in the ultrasonic parts washer. Right now I'm very frustrated as Bike Bandit doesn't even show the parts on their microfiche. Wow did I just use that word? Shows how old I am and how long I've been working on bikes. LOL
It's to hold the part of the decomp that prevents kickback. I'd guess that the hotcam doesn't use it.

Trailtech X2 Headlight on XR400 ?

Has anyone fitted one of these headlights to their XR400? Or any other dirt bike?
I'm wondering if the standard stator is powerful enough to run the light? Low beam draws 35w and the high beam requires 70w. I have a UK 2004 model XR.

Pull the headlight bulb out of your stock assembly. I'm betting your system has a dual element H4 bulb...north american models don't have this. 50% of the time the wattage is stamped into the metal casing. 55/60 is the most common AUTOMOTIVE version....but for bikes there is a 35/35 watt model....if yours says 35/35, you're probably out of luck...if it says 55/60....you might be ok.

Careful messing around with those A/C wires with the engine running, they'll light your little ass up!

Help cracked side stand lug!

First off there is a moral to this tale of woe, which is never let someone use your bike unless you know that they are competent.
I let number one son use the XR this week and when I went to use it this morning I noticed that she was leaning at an unusual angle.
So up onto the paddock stand and the rear view of the stand is somewhat akin to a left turn signal, I.E. it sticks out further than my leg.
Close inspection revealed a crack where the lug meets the frame loop.
My question is how do you go about fixing it, also is it engine out?

BTW, I haven't been lazy as I tried the search bar at the top of the page, to no avail.

Thanks in advance guys.

$1500 -- $1800 ....and thats IF you get a clean title...$500 -- $700 less if no title

Should not be too hard to get it tagged in AL, IF you have the title!

Cool. Thanks.

No title now. I want to go through the process to make it legal though.

I hope you paid considerably less for a bike without a title. Depending on the state you live in, you'll probably find out that its "Quite a Process".

Good Luck

Cheers,

Depending on your state, not having a title can be a really massive headache. I wouldn't even consider the bike myself, but if you think multiple trips to the DMV sounds fun, then I wouldn't go a penny higher than $500. The last time I got a bike without a title it took me 11 months and probably a dozen DMV trips to get it settled.
