My 400 has a tired look...2013 makeover suggestions

Recommended Posts

Love my 2001 400, but Ive been noticing it has a dated look....which at one time, I loved. I was wondering what others might have done to give an updated aesthetic look to their XR?

 

I could probably get away with putting a 450x front fender on...but what about a headlight fixture? Something aftermarket. Gas tank/? I love the way the modern enduro bikes looks like the KTM's and the Husabergs.

 

Thanks!

Cut the side panels down, and get a polisport rear MX fender.  I'm still searching for a front number plate that gets rid of the headlight, so I'm with you on getting suggestions there.  Below is mine.

MX style polisport rear fender, CRF's 2012 front fender and number plate, a set of cheap graphics and i painted the frame black.

FWIW, I notice you are running USD forks. Will a CRF fender easily fit a standard XR fork?

You're bike looks good, I like the cut down side panels. I would just bag that dated front fender and put on a '03 CRF front fender

Two of 4 holes are ready, you must to do only 2 extra holes to fit the fender on the stock fork.
