    This may be useful to someone. In trying to reduce the ride height of my 2004 XR400R, I wound the rear shock preload off and dropped the front forks through the yokes. However, I then found the sidestand was to long with the bike in danger of tipping over. I needed a shorter sidestand. Rather...

    My 2004 XR400R has very tired looking OEM Honda red plastics. Looking at my options, original Honda plastics run out at something like £240, as opposed to Acrebis at £110. What's the Acrebis colour match like to the Honda red? Cheers Gary

    Hi, New to XR400's. Can anyone tell me if the original 2004 seat cover was all red, or red with a black top? I can't tell from Tinternet photo's as they are usually taken from the side. Any suggestions where I could buy one in the UK? Cheers Gary

    I've been offered a 1997 XR400R with 11,000km, last owner 7 years 147km covered, I am interested in it for green laning, etc. It's currently sat in Spain, where it was originally registered, repatriating is not a problem. It's not a glamour model, I want to ride it not look at it, and shows...

    Can anyone tell me if it's possible to run my sat nav off of a 1998 XR400R. As you know it doesn't run a battery system so I was thinking that perhaps I could tap into a headlight feed to get my 12volts there? Any answers on how to go about it would be greatfully recieved.

There are bloody expensive to buy new and my bike needs allot of attention re lights and electrical s. So any wisdom or if you have a workaround or a...

    Hi chaps, I wonder if anyone has the answer to the following, does the crank case breather on my XR400R have a screen down within the engine or not? The reason being is that the bike has started to smoke quite badly and it's been suggested that a blocked breather could pressurize the system and...

    Dear all, I have a question about the rear brake pedal on my '98 Honda XR400R. The standard brake pedal fitted does not have a big enough contact patch for me...especially when riding standing up or doing wheelies. is there a larger Brake pedal available? or should I just try and weld a bit more...

    I have a 54 plate XR400R which I love to bits and needs new tyres soon. In Milton Keynes where I live, there are hardly any BOATS and I don't often get the time to ride out to the boonies in Northants to get dirty, so most of my riding is now on the road. Squared-off knobblies on roundabouts in...
