    New Mexico MVD Odessey

    Great determination, good job Norge. I also have a NM street legal XR400. I first made my XR400 street legal in Arizona while I was living there. Then when I moved to NM the MVD gave me a NM plate with no problem. I didn't know it was so difficult until after I received my NM plate.

    non o-ring chain on xr250?

    Sometimes you just don't know what to believe. http://www.justxr.com/info/xr4report.html KILL THAT O-RING CHAIN! This is one that a lot of people flip out on. In my personal opinion the day you get your brand new XR you should immediately KILL or TRADE IN that O-RING CHAIN! There are 2 reasons and I can show you how to substantiate both of them! 1) The O-RING chain robs power and unless you're riding a 600 I want every ounce of power I have coming to me! To prove this (provided your sprockets aren't worn out) replace your O-RING chain with a standard chain and ride up a mountain road on the street and feel how your bike pulls. If you don't feel a power difference you'll be the first to prove me wrong. A guy once told me "If you can feel it, it's at least a horsepower in gain" and I believe him. 2) O-RING chains wear out faster. Notice I didn't say stretch out faster?! The O-RING chain is made for the street and I'll show you how to prove it. Yeah, I've heard it before "The O-Ring chain is designed for dirt, to be sealed and keep the elements out". In theory that sounds great, but in reality it doesn't work! Take any XR on a stand and spin the back wheel paying close attention to the resistance. Take that same bike and slap a standard chain on and repeat the process. You'll find that the standard chain spins 500% more freely. The problem with the O-RING chain is that once ANY water gets inside the chain past the o-rings (this will happen in 15 seconds if you use a garden hose on your bike!) it will begin to rust and rust expands. This causes an incredible binding to take place. Prove it to yourself right now. If your bike is even a 3 months old take your chain off and examine the links. You'll find you have some links that are frozen and very difficult to move with your hands. I've seen links so frozen they could only be moved by putting the chain in a vice and beating on it with a hammer!!! Every time you see an XR pay close attention to the chain and you'll commonly see FROZEN LINKS. These links rob power and torque.

    xr400 high/low beam bulb

    I bought a high/low kit, switch and bulb, from "four strokes only". I would only recommend "four strokes only" as a last resort because of the slow (2 months) service.
