    Chris, your video reports are great. You and your buddies really know how to ride. How much for your XR400? BTW, where do you get the downspout for the stock exhaust?

    Thanks, the orig owner was a good rider that kept this thing nice, not sure where he picked it up, it's cool though.

    Because the XR400R and XR250R have the exact same part number for the clutch and decompression lever, I wanted to ask this question on this thread as well.

    I got my CRF450R Clutch/Hot Start perch. After looking it over, I've learned that the cable ends are not interchangeable. I called Motion Pro and I can get 2 custom cables made for $75 + shipping. Before I go that route I wanted to ask the collective if anyone has tried the XR650R Clutch/Hot Start perch and if it worked with the stock OEM XR400R cables with no additional modifications. :ear

    My XR4 comp cable was slightly larger in diameter than the hole in the perch, I just drilled it out since there's no adjuster. It was almost plug n play for me. Def liked the way it cleans up the bars.

    I have a Seat Concepts seat listed in the Flea Market under Parts.

    A great improvement over the stock seat ! ! !

    If I had saw that 2 weeks ago I'd be all over it, good deal! Looks like the XR4 might be sold so I done with the mods.

    Is there a collection of front racks on here? I'm wanting to build a new rack with a 7" round light and also integrate the fuse/dual sport crap, gps mount, etc... and I'm looking for ideas.

    Here is one I made in a hurry a few years ago before our CDR trip.[​IMG]

    Me neither, and I've been through this whole thread twice in the past month.

    Krebs, click here and scroll down to 'Panniers & Racks', and jot down the post numbers listed. Then sift through those posts here on the XR4 Thread.

    But like Hughrk said, I don't recall seeing any. Good luck.

    Careful with how much weight you put up there. I had my chainsaw mounted up there with horrible results. It wasn't bad through average terrain, but when things got technical, I wrecked. A lot. :muutt

    I tried to put on a FCR from a DRZ400K, but the throttle cable thing is on the wrong side. i didn't feel like coping up the frame and sold that one. Now i'm looking for a mikumi tm, than i only need to extend the hose from the airfilter.
    what is on an yz? and what size?
