  1. got ya, ND08, Japan model, I live in the states so I wasn't aware these existed, to bad the parts weren't available here
  2. very nice, so that's the crf230 tank with a stock 06 xr400 seat? What year is the tank? Is it true that the bolt holes line up?
  3. Ok I got fooled the bike was photoshoped................. Here's a link on the subject http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/830653-crf-tankseat-on-xr250-can-it-be-done/?view=findpost&p=8610710&hl=%2Bcrf230 I'd still like to know if anyone has made the mod work, apparently the tank bolts on but the seat mounting was the issue........................
  4. check out this little beauty ! XR400R using CRF230 seat / tank, lovely, I like the looks better then the Aloop kit. Only 1.9 gal. capacity though. Anyone done this or knows of other seat / tank combos that will fit? ALSO If anyone has an Aloop kit or CRF230 parts for sale please let me know.
  5. anyone got a solution for a spacer after removing the odometer wheel mount?
  6. I agree, no head shake at speed in the woops and keeping your line in tight rocky trails is fantasic, you can hit stuff that would normally rip the bars right out or your hands. But as to a fork swap, after reading through some threads it looks like revalving the stock front end seems like the way to go. Putting in the right springs was like night and day but the rebound is so horrible, it performs like a pogo stick on hard edges and chatters on the studder bumps.
  7. sure be nice to just bolt on a set of new legs on my XR400, I don't want to swap out the triple clamps because I've got a scott stabilizer setup. What's the best solution ?
  8. the 05 yz250f was a dream on the trails, might be picking up a 09 YZ450F wondering what to expect, if they feel heavier, less maneuverable, better low end, etc.

  10. I'm shop'n for a 250f and came across this. In 06 Yamaha had a titanium valve recall and replaced the valves with stainless ones. Anyone know about this ?
  11. I've had a couple yz250f a few years back and loved them on the trail, how does the 06 kx250f handle tight woods riding in comparison ?
  12. last one I had was a few years ago, looking at a couple for sale locally. Can anyone lead me to a tread or give me a quick low down on changes from the 09 over the 06
  13. anyone got a gas tank that will fit a 98 KLX300?
  14. I have a edelbrock pumper on my xr400 I picked up used. It was missing the pump linkage, after I got the parts I rode the bike and noticed an improvement in off idle proformance. I took it out a half dozen times and rode it hard for 2 hour trail rides and it performed well, easy to start even after laying the bike down, no issues. I then went to start the bike one day last summer and it fired up 1st kick but I had a brain fart and I twisted the throttle before the engine was warmed up and I flooded it, this had never been a problem before I would just restart the bike. Well I tried to restart it and nothing, wouldn't even fart. I tried for about a week to get the bike started again and nothing, checked the plug and it was always wet, I tried everything, shuting off the gas and kicking to clear the cylinder, taking the plug out and kicking it over a few times, I then took the carb off and didn't see anything a miss, reinstalled it, still nothing. After that I put the stock carb back on and it fired right up and runs perfect. anyone got any ideas
  15. Don't like the sound of that Dave !! I did get some nice response with the pumper, I could actually lift the wheel of this xr400 beast right off idle instead of the bog from the stock carb. But I just got ride of my yz250f because of reliably issues, I decided after pushing the yz through the trails back to the truck a few times I'd give up some ( a lot ) of performance and light weight for a dependable woods machine. So I'd sure like to know what the F**k is up with this carb ! I sure the hell don't want this pumper to fail again on me up in the mountains on top of walker valley..............
