    talk me into buying a xr400

    Mine has been just a bulletproof as everyone says, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I ride the snot out of it and I love it.

    talk me into buying a xr400

    I have 3 XR's - 1 of them a '96 400 that I love! It's mostly stock and does everything I could ever want - lots of high mountain Utah trails and has been an awesome bike, but... I'm also not into this as much as others - however I put about 3500 singletrack miles on it every summer. I'm curious why you say the '96 is not one of the better years. Is there something I should be keeping an eye on? I'm kind of out of the loop that way.

    XR Silencer

    Thanks! Do you happen to know the item number? Also - yes - this is the year with the funky dual pipes, which I think is why I'm having problems finding a silencer.

    XR Silencer

    I want to replace the silencer on my '88 XR600R, but I can't seem to find one. I can find them for about every year but '88. I was thinking something a little more 'trick' than the stock silencer - something like a White Bros stainless, etc. Anyone now where I can get something like this? Do I just buy a regular silencer and get a pipe conversion (if it exists)? If so, where do I get that?

    Restrictor Plates

    Anybody know if the 88 XR600 came stock with an intake restrictor plate? If so, how do you remove it?

    Rear fender for XR600

    I had the same issue - I hated the curved enduro fender and replaced it with a heavily modified MX style fender from a 2005 CR 250. It looks trick. Almost like a new bike now.
