    Sure, I just went through the same process.
    Picked this one up off of Ebay. The dude just started making them for the XR400 and it's a darn sturdy rack. Most importantly, it matches my bike nicely:

    And for the full view:

    The main issue was the Baja Designs dual sport kit I had installed.
    The rear tail light / signals / license plate mount was way too tall for the rack to clear.

    That kit's rear assembly was ugly anyway and with a little re-wiring I have the stock taillight in place with the signals drilled into the sides of the fender. The current license plate set up is temporary, but works for now.


    The pro billet rack looks nice and sturdy as well, but again looks like it will only clear the stock set up.

    Let's see more XR4 rack pix!
