    Starter Clutch?

    Can someone tell me how this works, or how to check it? I see it's on the back side of the flywheel and do not see from looking at the service manual how this item works. I have read through this section due to a problem with the 650L not starting. The starter motor turns but the engine does not. Drop the bike in gear and it has compression but no apparent resistance on the starter motor. I took apart the starter gear cover area and all looks good in there but the manual suggests a bad starter clutch when starter motor turns but engine does not. What can make this part go bad?

    Can I get Black plastics for my XR 400?

    Any thing is possible with the right amount of ca$h. I changed to black but it wasn't cheap nor was it with stock Honda parts.
  6. P.M. me. Maybe I can help you.

    How do you remove graphics from the tank?...

    I used some of that orange solvent to dissolve the adhesive then plenty of soap and water to remove the solvent. You just have to soak it and let IT work.

    Adding grease nipple to frame position?

    Put it in the upper 1/3 of the head tube, the grease goes down easier than it goes up. Use high temperature waterproof grease and you will be good to go. See below. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...ht=grease+zerk

    XR400 Steering real hard to turn!!

    When you take it apart to clean and grease or replace the bearings I would suggest you do this: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=455464&page=2&highlight=grease+zerk This is my trick that I started using back in the early eighties.

    fitting 400 oil cooler onto 250 frame

    To mount the cooler to the steering head I used a piece of aluminum bent to match the contour of the head tube then I riveted it in the center using two pop rivets. Then I drilled a hole in either end to mount the cooler. I mounted the cooler on my 650L motard.
