  1. The time has come to buy a street bike. I'd rather not go through the conversion process of dual sport on my bike... so for sale she goes http://www.thumpertalk.com/classifieds/showproduct.php?product=17124&sort=1&cat=2&page=1

    you know that you are jumping quite a broad range of jets.. 142 to 160 is a big jump.. same for the pilot.. jets arent THAT expensive.. pickup a 155 or 152 and see if that does anythingi run 158/58 with the gordons mods and I dremeled out my baffle... bike performs pretty nicely and I havent adjusted that fuel screw yet.. I do need to do that because it slightly hesitates from a slow 1st gear roll and crank the throttle

    talk me into buying a xr400

    my buddy is interested in a 4 stroker.. sent you a pm!As far as the XR4 goes, i had a 03 XR250, and that was impressive for me, but my 02 XR400 totally blows it away... It's pretty nimble for the trails I ride, and when I want to go fast, it goes fast!
  6. I too was wondering the same thing and i'll install a switch... I know the stator is putting out electricity when the motor is running, but how is unused electricity a bad thing? It's not going to melt anything right?

    xr400 vs xr650

    I love my XR400... having owned an 83 XR200, 03 XR250, and now my 02 XR400... hands down XR4... sometimes it scares me how much the bike screams with just simple gordon's mods...

  12. im not sure of the sequence either, but full choke and a few kicks... then no choke and the bike actually starts for me on the 1st or 2nd kick after.. no decomp lever used

    XR250 sputtering when warm

    does that piece just float inside the carb??? i remember when i changed my main/pilot jets, that thing didnt really sit flush anywhere, only had a little "u" grooved out for what appeared was the pilot.. im not sure though
