84' XR350 side cover / tank / seat options

Recommended Posts

Hello all, first post to this forum. I am in the process of rebuilding a 84' xr350and am looking for side cover, and tank/seat options. Will 84 XR250 side covers work on the 350? Either side? I have read some conflicting posts on the matter on several boards. Also would like to get a large desert tank, does anyone know what tank/seat options will work on the XR 350? I have the Frame, Swingarm being powdercoated and should have it back in about a week. Will post some pics when I pick it up. I have a million Questions but will save the rest for later.

Thanks,

Doug in AZ.

I know that bike! Excellent choice for restoration.....that bike won the 1984 Baja 1000 and put Team Honda on the map! As far as plastics...I have read that 1984 XR250 plastic may work.......might need to trim up or re-drill holes.

Talk to the guys at Meier plastics....they really know there stuff. As far as seat/tank options, the 1984 had a desert tank stock. All your seat foam and recovering can be done by Verdone in Mesa Arizona...they also post on Ebay.

If you have the stock seat foam and cover.....they will match it. If the plastic isn't cracked...just faded pink..........sand it to 1000 grit and buff it with plastic polish....will look like new and be alot cheaper than new...plus the new maybe really "red" and not the stock orange/red color. Any more questions...just fire away...ALOT of guys in this forum know this bike! Hope the info helps! Baja Brad XR650R

I got plastic for my 85 from Meier. I got black, but black fuel tanks are hard to find for the 85. Lot more options for 84's. Google "your bike" fuel tank and you'll find a couple of good places.

I have a complete set of OEM plastic for that bike...tank, fenders, side covers, front light/shrowd. I bought them in 1985 after I scratched all my originals. I hate scratches, but instead of puting new ones on.......I just bought a new bike. If you want.......$50 plus whatever it costs to ship(maybe $20). Let me know.......they aren't even dusty because they are still in the factory sealed plastic bags. Good luck Dugger!

      What’s up guys. Totally new here picked up an XR400R I live in the desert so I’m riding often and enjoy it. But I am having some issues with my  01 XR400R. I brought it out this morning for a putt and it seems to be choking up in the top of second. Like a bog an go bog an go. First seemed fine and third I didn’t make it high enough into the rpms to see. Before I brought it back to the garage. Yesterday I also changed the air filter back to an uni. I had seen the other one had a hole in it and the box was dirty gunned up and oily. I removed the airbox gave it a good clean out wiped everything down very well put a piece of screen over the snorkel Or where it used to be I should say. “Lightly oiled the filter.Also the spark arrester an tip for the bike it did not come with I ended up making one with a piece of flat steel and drilling holes. Whilst doing this. I found also a crack in the pipe. It almost sounds as like there’s a vacuuming or whistle? When revving.The first one I had made worked fine I had no issues. This one I am wondering maybe if it’s a cause of a little too much back pressure.So I’m assuming it’s either a Carb or exhaust problem. Or something that could totally be minuscule. Or major issue. Would definitely like some second opinions and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

      My lanky 14 year old boy started showing an interest in riding MX/Off-Road so I sourced the best beginner friendly, yet dirt worthy, bike I could find: an Ol' Honda XR250R (2004). So far I've replaced a few clutch levers and perches with stock parts. That's gotten old and I'm looking to upgrade to an ASV or Torc1 type fold-able clutch/perch brake combo. Went to purchase online today and to my surprise there were no such parts listed for the XRs. I saw plenty of CRF/CRF-X choices and they seem to differ depending on generation. Obviously I can use nearly any perch/clutch combo as long as the two match; but I was wondering if anyone knew which of these levers was closest to stock? Also, will the first gen CRF250X brake lever work on the XR? These may be stupid questions to some; but I'd rather ask a dumb question than drop money on an ASV brake lever I can't use. Thanks for any help.

      Im currently in the market for an xr400r, and considering buying one that's had some heavy engine work done. The current owner claims to have bought it from a friend who's an XR enthusiast. The PO installed a big bore kit and high comp piston, as well as a xrs only pumper carb, rsw triple clamp, aftermarket clutch, street lights, and a whole bunch of bling.
       
      My main concern is the effect the upgrades will have on the engine's longevity. How much quicker will I be going through top ends with the setup on this bike as opposed to a stock setup, and should I be worrying at all about bottom end longevity as well? I wouldn't mind having to eventually redo the top end, but I don't want to deal with a race bike type top end rebuild schedule on an XR. 
      Is there anyone here who's running a bike similar to this one who can give some advice?

      I have a 2001 Honda XR400R. It has a whirring/grinding sound in the lower end and a vibration in the top end. I pulled the valve cover and everything looks good. Decompression lever looks to be in order. Anyone know where I should start looking or just rebuild the whole engine. Ballin on a budget, but really love this bike. It looks like it’s new otherwise. Oil was jet black and thin. Thanks in advance!
