Well over the weekend I got to do a little surgery on the little 400/4.
As it is not running I decided to pull the carbies out and give them a thorough clean and service.



A broken manifold will need to be replaced.



A quick look inside the Carb’s shows number 1 opens a long time after 3 & 4 and 2 doesn’t move at all. I will post the carbie rebuild photo’s as I go.

I will be doing a compression test but from the look of it a head gasket might be on order too. I am just weighing up how far to go with this, as it is not a restoration. I will know once I have the comp test numbers.



I am still looking for a XL or XR front end ???

Bout time you started...

My RZ still looks pretty much the same even though I have been busy building a new shock mount and other small but important jobs.

Yep, but I can see it taking a liitle more effort that I first would have thought.

Lots of Little jobs on the list to get sorted

Just have to get into it . . . . .

I have found a great deal on a 460cc piston kit for the 400/4. $360 landed in Sydney.

Now I have to do a Compression Test to see if it needs the rebore.


MMMMM XR460 Four

Well I have just completed the compression test tonight

1- 55 then 73 psi
2- 54 then 68 psi
3- 70 psi
4- 65 psi

A little bit of oil in No:1 and 170 psi, which is where it should be.

Looks like a 460cc kit is on the way.

Have also been looking at the air filtering system, looks like a lot of places for leaks, so I will have to have a good look at that as well. Im not a fan of pod filters and I can get the foam ones. I will be riding over 600k's of dirt and gravel when its finished, so any suggestions ???

Coming soon the engine tear down pics

Still looking for an old XL or XR front end and swingarm

Well, my 460cc BIG bore kit turned up on Friday

Look like very good quality and at a very reasonable price

Now I have to pull the engine down to get it re-bored.



PS: Im still looking for an old XL, XR, NX, SL, CL Honda Front end and swing arm or complete bike

Back to reason for the build.

We are about to officially launch the 2010 Scrapheap Adventure Ride.

I will start a new thread but here is a pic of one option I found on the Web

I can see OldDog riding this sucker
