XR400 Frame guards ??

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find any (at least here in the USA). Acerbis doesn't appear to have any and the only other brand i see is Works Connection but they always list them for an xr250 . I would assume they would fit but I am leery since they don't have them listed as xr250/400 only as xr250 (96-05). Where did you guys who have them purchase them? Do the xr250 works connection ones mount up correctly? Thanks for the help.

Anybody use guards from another bike and found they mount up well? Maybe acerbis's xr600 on the xr400? Anybody do anything outside the box for there guards??

I use this non slip type Intertape to protect the painted frame areas on my CR500R’s and XR630R’s. The adhesive backing is water proof and adheres well to the frame. The non slip tape is tough enough to with stand riding boots rubbing against the frame areas. It protects the frame and paint and it’s cheap to replace when needed. You can also buy the 1 x 12 inch strips at Lowes or Homedepot as well. :smirk:

That non slip tape is an abrasive like sandpaper which will screw up your boots for sure.

I would think, if you can find it, a Teflon type tape like the stuff they put on the fence of a table saw to make it more slippery.

Just my 2 cents

I started off using a plastic tape that is very durable. Never had an issue with that tape till my new mx boots. This tape is used on side panals on cars and you see it alot on jeeps. Unfortunatly my boots were wearing through the tape at spots. I then made my own set out of plastic which works much better but I actually found aluminum frame guards from an england company called ad tek. they look good in the pictures so i placed an order but i have not recieved them yet. I bought a set for the xr and one for my drz400 .( helps to justify the shipping costs from europe getting 2). Thanks for the helpfull replies though.

There's all kinds of degrees of that non slip stuff. From sandpaper like to simply textured a bit. Doens't have to be the chew you up stuff.

They don't show you much [like how they install] if it's two sided tape, forget that, those things are like 75 dollars + shipping and how long does it take to get them. You can get stuff from Japan faster then it takes to get stuff from England. Theres some sort of time warp in the middle of the Atlantic. :smirk:

I tried to order some last night and I couldn't get the site past check out and take pay pal or a credit card .

It comes to about 52 bucks for a set. Its about twenty something to ship. I ordered 2 sets to maximize that shipping charge. (1 set for my drz). I could not find anywhere else to buy them ( thus my post asking for help) which is why i had to order from england. I could not order online either so i had to place a call. If you search the internet you can find some mounted on bikes and they look decent, but i do not know for sure if they are or not. As far as wait time.....whats the alternative?

      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!
