I'm trying to return my XR400 to standard specs.
As it seems that many XR owners remove these items, I'm hoping that someone has a diffuser and snorkel for sale!
If you do, please send me a message. Thanks.

Been stood a while and prepping her for winter abuse.
Thought it was cables so popped throttle off but even with the cables loose it still stuck on full - after a tug on the return it snaps back.
I've oiled the cables plenty - there was oil drippping out at the carb end so it got...
Well I've decided that the easiest way to do my recent tour trip write up is going to be in the form of a blog.
That way it's going to be more easily readable than by inserting a few random images on here.
So, to date I've managed to write up the first half of the journey covering North Wales...
Can anyone give me the dimensions (dia, bore, width & any identifying part numbers) on the rear bearings. I want to source my own. Oil seals too please.

Now the RD04 Marathon rep encourages me to thrash it so I've never really pootled along as I have almost always been on my one when on it

Bought a centre stand for my 04 the other day off Rugged Roads. I'm not 'twp' here (welsh for - thick, stupid etc) but after everything was in place

Been fiddling with the speedometer, as the old owner made some interesting changes, things happened, and I overturned the needle, to where the spring snapped.
