XR400 fork conversion?

Recommended Posts

No luck with search results so has anybody tried mounting a set? I am debating doing the XR250 fork conversion but haven't seen any 96+ models for sale anywhere but plenty of 400 sets floating around.

It can be done. It will be about the same process. The 400 front axle is different from the 230, so you'll need different wheel bearings and spacers and of course a 400 axle. With the 250 stuff it is pretty much bolt on, with just a few things here and there to fix up.

Ugh, hadn't thought about the axle. Got all excited when I saw the 400 forks also used the same head bearings as the 250 and 230. Well, that negates the near bolt-on appeal of going the XR fork route. Back to watching for 250 forks again...
