Yes, I couldn't figure out how I got on a Harley trike mailing list.


That's just plain mean.


Hits closer to home than all the Viagra, Cialis e-mails.

This really hurts to admit. Santa came early, just in time for the snow.

The one has a NOS setup. I told my son not to even think about it.

Yeah, a 30% increase in your case. But making an XR400 into a 440 will provide nominal gain, more expense, and the loss of OEM function.

Stock xr 400

XR400s that are modified to 440 almost invariably eat second and third gears. Back in the day two friends did it, one blew second and one blew third. XR 400s last forever stock and are time bombs when hot rodded. Just my experience.

Thanks for the advice on the big bore... I'm not in a hurry to do anything on it since it's a parts bike and mine is fine, although it is tempting!

"Power corrupts. Absolute power absolutely corrupts"

Someone said that. Sounded heavy.

I'm pretty sure it was not a KLR owner.

Wrenching is good but who's up for some riding out in the west desert? thinking of some exploration!

Also, need someone who is good with CRF450x valves, to walk me through valve adjustment.

BrShooter and I are doing big bore kits on our XR400's at some point. advice is appreciated! (I bought a really clean XR4 w/ a blown top end, and i figure it'd be a good winter project! I paid a dollar a cc, and it's CLEAN, someone's little brother didn't know about checking the oil, or about a proper selling price. Harcus said i should feel guilty for taking it for $400, and I'm almost there)

also, I just cleaned the shop, so if anyone feels like doing wrench night in a heated shop, just say the word and we'll line it up!

I need to change my XR650R fork oil...

Buy a manual, buy the Hotcams shim kit. It's an easy bike to adjust valves on. Cyclepedia.com has good online manuals.

Don't skimp on the shim kit. It's about $80 and will save you a ton of time driving back and forth to the stealership. You can sell the shim kit with the bike when the time comes.

Just because we're doing big bore kits it doesn't mean we'll have XR440Rs! I know Honda makes oversized piston and rings just for this kind of scenario (the scenario being 2 ADVers screwing up their engines before buying a new one).

I'll take my top end to lindsay machines and put it back in the bike. I think that engine has a lot to give still. I doubt it'll add that much power as to eat the transmission, I doubt it'll add any power at all, actually.

Lindsey Machine did the top end work on my XR600R last year, good guys.
