    strange wobble/vibe front end

    also check your front mudguard, lean over the front and watch your mudgaurd shaking in the wind.

    Replacing Xr400 rear mud guard

    it is the standard xr400 mudguard but with 4 inch cut of the front, I notice that riding on the road at about 120 Kmph/75 mph there is a bit of a shack on the steering, and it was cause by the mudguard flexing in the wind, by cutting the front I found it more stable.

    Replacing Xr400 rear mud guard

    yes it is possible, just had to cut some of the inside/front section that is under the seat away. and no change to the steel frame. but the side panels will not blend in with the mudguard.

    a Chevy or a BMW???

    but how can you tell the difference between a good cheap bike and a sh!t cheap bike. I live in South Africa and their has been a bit of an explosion of the chinease bike on the market, some are the same bikes just with different badges, some are same engine/different frame and styling, and it is very hard getting any truth out of any dealer about which is better even if the bikes are the same with a badge change.
