    Edelbrock carb unavailable. XR400???

    I have an Eldelbrock pumper carb I just took off my XR400. Works great with about 30 hours on it. I am restoring the bike to original condition to give to a family member who insist on stock.

    Road gearing

    Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure if a tall 5th gear was availible or not. It sure would be nice, but I can still juggle with sprockets and like everything else, its a compromise. I found a 5.8 gallon Acerbis tank, with that and a TT endurance speedometer. I should be ready to go.

    Road gearing

    I'm ready to get into the gearbox. If I do the sprockets to get lower RPM on the highway, I will lose the slow speed in 1st needed to creep thru the big rock, really rough uphill stuff. That is what I'm doing now is changing countershaft sprocket. A really tall 5th would be sweet, if there is one.

    Road gearing

    I went to Big Bend national park in Texas last year and had a blast. It was riding off road trails (60%) and black top. We will do it again this year. My only problem was on the road my XR 400 ran out of top end and I had trouble keeping up. I needed a bigger gas tank also. This is with a stock countershaft sprocket and a rear with +3 teeth. Anybody know how to change 5th gear to a high speed (overdrive+) ratio???? I will install a 3.0 gallon tank fron Baja for longer legs, unless there is a bigger tank available. Any help would be appreciated.
