XR400R Farkle Fest

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, here's a link to my 2003 XR400R Farkle Fest. I bought this bike last summer. It was 100% uncorked and there was nothing that needed fixed. The only thing I did to it was to put on a DS kit and get it plated.

For this season, I decided to strip it down, check the parts, and do a handfull of upgrades. :thumbsup: So if your interested in following the progress, check out this link. It's to a DS form I'm a member of. Over there I'm "XRAnimal".

Yea, they're 3". the bars are 1 1/2" higher than my old set up. Not sure yet if i will run into a cable length problem.

This header is a mystery. Looks cool & compared to my stock header, it has the looks of a performance header:thumbsup: I do know it has a larger diameter collector tube that my stock header. In otherwords the stock muffer wont fit.

I ordered an FMF Q4 for my '03. The sleeve that came with it didnt fit. Today I took the header to a Monroe shop and they expanded the header tube to fit the FMF without a sleeve. Perfect "slip on" fit. By the way, they did it for no charge.:thumbsup:

That's something you don't see this days, or maybe they don't have a part number for that kind of labor in their system and it's better to just help. I wish there were more shops like that.. :ride:
