IS THERE A KNACK TO STARTING THESE OR JUST PULL CHOKE HIT BUTTON CHEERS
get a 1" EMT conduit tubing, 1.163 diameter, .060" wall thickness
cut/machine 2 teeth. .25" wide and .25" high
it's cheap but functional.
There are no wires involved. Understand that the Mikuni pumper is not some marvel of technology, it's a very basic design as far as modern carbs go. The stock Keihin carb is a testament to overthinking engineers, the Mikuni could've been standard equipment on the XR4 to begin with but saving face is a cultural thing in Japan.
Like it or not, the exact same Mikuni carb is standard OEM equipment on many Harleys! :huh
in the future, use the POST NUMBER..it is the number in the upper right hand part of your post, just as this is post number 5109...page numbers mean nothing as many here have changed their page settings, just like I have!

97 XR400R Dual sport. This bike has a california plate and is street legal. Bike runs great!! It has a big bore 425 kit on it and an FMF powercore 4 pipe!! The suspension was recently rebuilt by Too Tech suspension with new seals and springs. Bike has acerbis hand gaurds, aftermarket heavy duty skid plate, baja designs folding mirrors, and 1 quart gas/water tank mounted on the bars. Aftermarket bars with 1 inch risers which makes it much easier to stand up when riding! New battery was just installed on the bike. Also the bike has a pouch on the rear fender for storing tools, tubes, info, etc. There is a new front tire on the bike and a brand new rear tire that i will give with the bike that hasnt been put on yet. I just put a new speedo cable on the bike as well. This bike is Fast and Fun!! I have kept up with maintenence regularly. Just did an oil change and cleaned the air filter. Comes with a bike stand!! I have the title in hand!! Asking 1950
Sounds good, but at that price its either a heck of a deal or looks like hell. California plated 400's in good condition start at about $2400. Also need to find out when it was 1st plated in California. If it was after January 2004 then it better have been plated out of state before coming to Cali. If it was 2004+ and not from out of state, run away.
yes..just type in the post number that you have a question abt..makes it much more 'precise' in getting the right answer to your question. That way, we can look at the exact post you are..way too many posts and topics in the thread to be vague.
click on that post number and it will open up in another window, copy the link and paste it in your post, like this
and that will save us a lot of searching!
Still have it. Its a free wheel since you can sell your stocker for the same price on ebay. Didn't think this would last a day at this price. :eek1

hey wallrat this sparky plug thing that pull's like a champion as in spark plug remover could you tell me how long is your's lol im chasin a tool kit but can only get one out of a cbr600 which has a 18ml socket@15cmlong over here sorry bout metric could you or anyone measure there tool lol from tip to end i dont want one of those motion pro crap ones that you have to shrink cheers
That will probably be too long. Mine is 118mm long and I can just barely clear the frame to slide it in.
Just for peoples information, over here in the UK Honda want a small fortune for a spark plug tool.
So I had a trawl through e Bay, and found a universal tool which did both 16 mm and the required 18 mm for approx £5.00
or $7.50 US?
Anyhow, I measured the depth required so as to clear the frame by putting a zip tye down to the bottom of the tunnel (past the spark plug hex's) and simply cut the 16 mm off to the required length, I finished it off with a hole through both sides to take a screw driver blade or small bar,and hey presto a functional tool for a fraction of OE prices.
Hope this is of some use to someone.
I think mine is out of a 400ex tool pouch? Honestly I can't remember.
The one I use on my XR400 with a big ass gas tank on there is 115 mm long and it is pinched down on the end and has a M12 hex which I have shortened some...it could be shortened even more to get to 113....then use a m12 box end, or better yet, one of the ratchet box end wrenches. This one was in the XR400 tool kit...and is the same one used in the pre-1996 XR250R's...i shortened it because getting back in there with that big tank is a PITA...the one wallrat shows is almost a PITA because with those holes and the crossbar it'shard to get 90 degrees of rotation every time....and the plug has LOTS of threads
I start my plug with about 3" of 5/16" ID hose over the end as an extension on the plug
Installed a new rear tire on my '96 XR400 yesterday, and got her loaded up in the truck to ride this weekend.
Today, walking behind my truck, I grabbed the rear tire and there is some play at the axle, not much, but enough to notice.
I remember torquing the axle nut pretty snug last night and every looks ok...
Anything obvious I may have missed? First time I have pulled the rear wheel out of this fairly new to me bike.
Rear wheel bearings? If you grab and can move the tire sideways, should be those shot.
thankyou thankyou thankyou to all that helps
