    XL600/650 speedo drive on a 400?

    Cool, thanks. How much do you want for yours, out of curiosity?
  2. Getting closer to putting my XR400R on the road. This is actually a 2 part question: 1. Can I use the XR400 odometer drive to turn a speedo cable instead? Meaning, can I use the 400 drive and simply use another Honda drive cable + cable driven speedo to adapt a speedometer to the 400? 2. If not, will a drive from the XL600 or any other Honda road bike fit in place of the 400 drive? I have a couple of cable-driven Honda road bike speedos, and I also have the wheel drives to go with them. Worst case, I can use the spare Acewell speed I have, but I'd like to keep things simple and prefer the analog speedo. Thanks all!

    I recently needed to spend an extra few bucks to get free shipping from Motorcycle Superstore, so I bought a set of Polisport hand guards on closeout for $5. Regularly over $20, iirc. Naturally they didn't have the color I wanted (white), so when they got here I painted over the silver with PlastiDip to make them satin black. Pics to follow, I plan to simply bolt them to the existing holes on the Tusk aluminum guards. Wiring is just about done, waiting for a new switch.

    I've been super busy and am just now, after 6 months, getting into this 400 and getting it ready for riding. Here are a few pics. First I had to pull the BD harness and rebuild pretty much the whole damn thing. Lots of broken wires, connector was junk, etc. Got that done. Needed a quick taillight solution so I grabbed a CBR600 front turn signal from a pile and painted the lens red. Made this bracket to hold the light, and the rear signals Here it is done And on the bike Here you can see it with the fender installed, license plate should keep most crud off the lights. You can see the new aluminum handguards and new footpegs there too.

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes, the bike up on the lift is an '83 VF750F. I love my Interceptors, have a few of them.

    What Did You Do To Your XR Today . . . .

    I finally started rebuilding the butchered BD harness that was on the bike when I got it. Wires had been broken, bypassed, replaced, etc. I had to cut out the BD connector because wires had broken off at the pins in the connector, and it was too dirty to try to save the pins and resolder new wires. It was a mess. I used a clean set of connectors from a spare harness to rebuild. I have it all sorted now, going to run some power checks later today.

    Here's a ride video from today. I have more footage that I'm working on now. I haven't totally solved the mic issue, but I'm working on it. The video is available in HD, but you have to select it. I am on my 95 XR250, my riding buddy is on a DRZ400.

    I am the king of back burner projects... I just ordered one of those batteries today. Thanks again for the tip.

    Are these ContourRoam cameras? If so, can you tell me what you have the mic sensitivity set at? And also if these were filmed using hte masking tape trick you mentioned earlier? Sounds pretty good!

    First real ride w/ the ContourRoam. I'm not impressed with the sound quality, it's really hard to get rid of the wind noise! http://vimeo.com/39916845
