Note: First post, please forgive my ignorance, posting in wrong section, stupid questions, etc. Thanks Background Story: I just purchased an 1997 XR400 from craigslist! The bike is very very clean. There has been 2 prior owners: - Owner 1 (1998): Bought a bunch of mods/upgrades for it and gave it to his wife. His wife didn't like it, so he sold it to the second owner. Had it for less than 1 year. - Owner 2 (1999): The second owner used it around his property (a dairy) and used it rarely, kept it in a garage, and took very good care of it when he did used it. Owner 2 does not remember what mods owner 1 put on the bike. - Owner 3 (2016): Me! (I would like to find out what owner 1 did to the bike). My Questions: I would l just like to know where I stand, what mods have been installed to this bike? By looking at the below pictures, could you guys please help me by listing anything that doesn't look stock? Big or small, I've never owned an XR400 before so I wont know. Thanks so much! Things I already know from owner 2: + FMF exhaust + IMS 440 Kit - I have googled this everywhere and cant find what exactly the IMS 440 kit is. I know its a big bore 440, owner 2 said it also had stronger valve springs, clutch, carb re jetted, and guards done. But thats all we know, anyone know if there is more to this mod or if we are even right? Main things I'd like to know: + Suspension - he said the suspension was completely redone. In the pics you can see its by JN Innovations and Moto Pro. I would like to get this setup to my riding style/size ( 6'4" 180lbs mostly doing trail, fire roads, and some dunes). How can I tell if this will work for me, has appropriate springs ,etc? It feels a little loose. Should I just treat it as stock and try to adjust it to feel the best for me? + Carb - I hear upgrading to a pumper carb is one of the best mods you can do to the 400. I'm pretty sure this is the stock carb, but how can I be sure, so I don't buy a pumper when I already have one. Since this is a 440 big bore the pumper carb will still be an effective improvement right? +Stator - I would like to put a light bar for dune riding. I read that the stock stator doesn't have enough juice to power a light bar. So I would have to upgrade to a 200w. I would like to check to make sure I don't have an upgraded stator already? Any easy way to do this? Or do I have to pull out a voltmeter? ... ( side note, anyone know any cool light bars for the 400?) Now the pics: Whole Bike: Whole bike front: Left side, rear suspension: Rear suspension: Rear Wheel: Front: Front Forks: FMF Exhaust (I have the stock too, does anyone know if the FMF is to loud to drive on OHV places and if I should use stock to be safe?): This was written on owners manual, IDK if it was what was done or what maybe it can help? From the back: Thanks: And that all the questions I have for now. Thanks for any help you can provide or suggestions on things I can improve to get the best out of this bike. If you need more pictures for reference just let me know and I can put some more up! Thanks again!
