    Riding my XR400 Every Day!
  1. Thanks heaps guys! Im doing it now, seems pretty straight forward. Cheers!
  2. Oh cool, so it will spring back to the middle by its self, cool thanks! I would of only undone the triple clamps & tried to twist the handle bars straight to the wheel. Good to know, Cheers!
  3. Turns out one of the bar mount bolts were slightly bent, swaped them side of side, now thebars a level with the head stock but the front wheel is still out I think.
  4. Hey I have an idea but just wanted to double check, Whats the correct way of fixing handle bars not in line with front wheel on my 08 CRF450x? Here's a photo of the problem, what it looks like rite now, very annoying riding having to hold the bars on an angle: As you can see, the actuall handle bar mounts are on the piss, Ive fixt this a bit before by removing the handle bars & rubber bushes where it mounts to the head stock & swapped the rubbers around from sid to side & that straightend them up a bit, but it still wasnt perfect. So its is next thing to do loosen the fork clamps, hold the front wheel still, twist the handle bars to the correct possition then tighten the fork clamps? Is that what I need to do? Or is that wrong? Cheers!!

    Aftermarket Airfilter Recomendations

    I go TwinAir & OEM & rotate between the two. I think they are exactly the same. Plus a Twinair prefilter sock.

    Thank You!!!! Yep that makes sense about the first photo, but the second one.... Inside the carby? Its a bit dirty, looks like it'd live somewhere outside the carby if its stained with dirt?

    08 sticky throttle while assembling! What do?

    Thanks for the info guys! I cleaned out the throttle assembly with CRC & sprayed the cables. & aligned the cables better. Now it springs back allot better. Another couple things, Ive got the carby back it but am a bit lost with a couple little things. It doesn't say anything about plugging up all the carby hoses & it takes a while to work out where everything goes back. Can anyone tell me where these go? I might work it out as I go further but just in case i dont, thought I'd ask.... Where Im up to: Ignore the Triumph logo, my feature wall.

    Cool, thanks guys for the idea's. i will give them a go! Havnt had a chance to continue with it yet but hopefully It frees up.
  12. Hey guys, Im assembling my 450x after installing new piston & reconditioned cylinder head with SS valves & new springs ect... I'm working from the Workshop manual & I'm up to fitting the carby back in. Ive just fitted the throttle cables & adjusted it. But the throttle seems to be sticky, like the spring is not strong enough to pull the throttle back shut after turning to full throttle. The WS manual says to put the cover on & continue, but its not rite.... I'm thinking of bringing home a can of contact cleaner & CRC tomorrow after work & give it & the cables a spray? Got any other idea's for me in the next 24hrs when I continue the assembly?

    Ok I know who Im sending the head to now. I spoke to me mate Izzy from Suspensions R Us & he highly recommended I send the head to Wideline Motorcycle Engineering (Harry bell) on 03 5975 9522 - http://www.widelinemce.com.au/index.htm I havnt got a price yet. But that doesn't matter, It'll be done properly. I'll rip the head off today & send it to him this week.
