    400ex bottom skid plate

    That is a nice piece for sure and looked into it as I did the Baja Series. I took a chance and went with the Perfex (poly) main skid plate. I'm quite impressed how it bends back into shape and does not break when I use a hammer to pound out the dings. What are you running for A-Arm and Swing Arm protection? Chris

    I forgot to ask what skid plate you went with and is it holding up? Chris

    Please help a newbie out!

    Can you give to me the Vehicle Identification Number (serial number)? Chris

    Airbox repair

    On an old Yamaha XT 350 I used 2 part epoxy while plastic plating the area to prevent further cracking and strengthen while maintaining weather proof-ness. Chris

    Time For A Change (Forced Option)

    Appreciate the input and finally made a move on a local unit after looking at a few out-of-town and city machines. 2008 TRX 400 EX, third owner, both original keys, ownership papers, all factor serial number stamping and decals intact, 2 sets of 4 OEM aluminum wheels with 4 original worn tires and 4 newer all terrain type tires, aluminum nerf bars with aluminum front bumper, woods rider bark busters, custom rear grab bar with 2 lift points which also acts as tail light stump buster (reverse is definitely not required but kind of handy actually). Stock air box with filter, stock exhaust and carb Not mint by any means but no signs of usual over-abuse as the chassis is not dented in anywhere and no broken tubes, no cracks In any welds, with OEM poly chassis and rotor/chain guard. It does have a crack in plastic on right side at the lower mount point to the metal chassis tab where a stump jammed up into the fender before the nerf bars were installed. My dedicated riding type is point A to point B thru sand, mud, rock, stumps with massive root collections with log obstacles (woods riding is my favourite by far) and just about everything in-between. I'm going to run it and see if anything needs adjusting and really love that it's the Red/Black colour combo. I've read a few articles on factory needle settings set lean but will need to track spark plug color and wear to see how it's running internally. This thing is pretty damn fun ! Chris

    Lets See Your XT & TT Pics.

    Amazing rides and personally enjoy the TT 350'S from 86-87 the best. I always thought the TT would take me to the 'next' level as I continued to ride the XT 350. Still after 18 years I have not found a TT 350 to buy, after passing up on numerous XT 350 Big Wheel's. I really wish I would have pursued the Big wheel 350 as it is awesome In its' own cray way.

  7. Hi All, It has been many years since being here (TT Forum) and I feel like I'm back home. I rode dedicated off-road on my 2 wheel 1986 Yamaha XT350 for approximately 7000 miles over 8 years, after buying it in 1999 with 4500 miles (Thanks to ALL including Corky, Great Dog, and any others not coming to mind). An injury has me looking at a 4 wheel machine and I believe I want a Honda 400 EX but appreciate feedback non-the-less. I am in a small Canadian Province therefore some makes/models are not available, hence 400 EX is plentiful as they come. I'm looking at 2WD, air cooled, smaller/light package, etc. 350 Warriors sell same price basically in the local market and are fewer between than the 400 EX. It will be a nice option too stop in sand and not worry about falling over. ThanX for any helpful input. Christopher A.

    400ex bottom skid plate

    I would test fit the skid 1st time without using the rubber pieces to best see figment location for the rubber pieces themselves. The rubber pieces should go between the skid plate and the frame/engine case for impact/sound isolation. I would stick the adhesive side to the skid plate, mount the skid and wait for the adhesive to set up. Should be usual 24-48 hours for full bonding strength. I'm going by the set-up design of my older Yamaha Dirt bike and expect principal the same. Christopher A.

    new quad

    I'm in same boat and my research leans towards TRX 400 for all around fun.

    Tt350

    I have been runninng an 1986 XT350 for the past 11 years. The TT350 was the dirt bike version of the XT350 which is a dual purpose. The TT350 was only offered in 1986-87 and the XT350 was built 1985-2000(north america). The bikes share similar properties just that the TT350 was heavier built for off road use only. 350 air cooled, single cylinder, 4 valves and dual carb type setup. I have put 8000 off road miles on my XT and maintain it quite often. The engine oil bathes the clutches so change the oil often to keep from contaminating the clutch packs. I would offer as high as 800 if it was real clean and well maintained. It is a solid motor mount setup and I find it noisy even when it is tuned correctly. With some re-jetting, performance muffler and re-gearing, it can be a fun trail bike. Good Luck.

    Try Sidewinder and maybe even do the 520 conversion for added abuse
