I'm putting my wife and kid on this thing so it could be dangerous:eek: !! Has this happened to you and what did you do to fix it beside's buying a new carb:thumbsdn: ? Thanks in advance for the advice, Mitch

    XR 400 vs. CRF 230???

    This is fun reading, I'm 6'3" and 215lbs and my first dirt bike was an IT490 (i did ride a street bike for a couple of years) almost killed me!!! Then i bought a DR650 for storage reasons, if i drop it i would toss my back out picking it up !! OH ya i have ridden a CRF230 but it was to small for my hight (everything can be modded, but more time wrenching then riding) like the E-Start though!! So the long and short of it I bought a XR400 it was a little short in the seat area but got risers that moved the bars up and out, that made this the prefect bike for me! Remember this is a trail bike and it is a little heavy but dam fun to ride! I alway find myself pushing the envelope and love it Go RED and F@%# the rest!!!!

    Anyone have a Q2 on there XR400?

    Thank you for the information, I live at sea level and will be headed to the MTN's (About 7000' to 8500') have you done any riding at that elevation? I may weight until I return to the bay area before installing? Again thanks for the information, Mitch

    Anyone have a Q2 on there XR400?

    Have you opened up your air box, an what kind of air filter are you using? I have not done any mod's to the air box it's all stock, oh i did put in a UNI air filter with no noticeable deference? thank you for the info.

    Anyone have a Q2 on there XR400?

    just picked up a FMF Q2 (stock header) for the 2000 XR! I spook with the tech at FMF and he said the a couple of Friends have just put the pipe no with the stock jetting and they ran fine, but those where XR650's not the 400 ! This muffler is for the XR400 (i check the part # with FMF) so I'm hoping i can just slip on, but if anyone out there has the same pipe on there XR400 please shoot me some tip's , if you don't mind ! "Keep the rubber side down" Mitch
  11. Good morning, the reason I'm writing this fine day is, i just bought a T4 Pro circuit EXH. system for my son . The air box has been opened and the carb is still all stock. Could i get a little advice on the Jetting for this system ? "please" Mitch

    Front End Shaking on my 2001XR400

    Well yesterday I took out my XR and tested it (dropped the front shock tubes about 3mm and set the rear sag) after adjusting it on Friday! Went to a place called Stonyford (very cool riding area) not as easy a Hollister but just as fun!! The adjustments seem to help, I got up to 35MPH and no head shake! But I was not a tired as last time either! Will keep up dating this post with any new information when it applies to this problem.. Thanks again TT’ers for all your in-put, Mitch

    Front End Shaking on my 2001XR400

    Wow, thanks for all the info!! I e-mailed the PO and he told me he kept the front forks as stiff as he could? I’m 225 w/gear (lbs) he would run maybe 270 w/gear(lbs), this maybe why he had it so stiff? Will relax the fork and set the rear shock with the proper sag and then cross my fingers …LOL Going to work on “her” this Friday and ride Sunday... I will give an up-date on what it takes to tame this XR!
