Talking here's mine

I sold my KTM400 to buy the last brand new one available in Perth, Australia; mainly because I was working overseas at the time and wanted something the could sit in the shed for two months or more and be rolled out, kicked in the guts and trail-ridden without any dramas.
Going from a KTM back to a XR400 was....interesting, so I've been busy trying to improve the XR400 whilst retaining it's engine reliability.
So - I haven't touched the engine apart from the Vortex ignition.
So here's what I've done to it:
De-restricted
Barkbusters
Pro Taper bars
Riser kit
Acerbis headlight
B&B Bashplate
IMS Stainless Steel Pegs (pivot pegz soon to be available )
Scotts Steering Damper with BRP submount kit
IMS Gearshift lever
B&B Rear disc guard
Eibach Fork Springs
Eibach Rear spring
Onlins rear shock & spring (not yet fitted)
Trailtech Vapor computer
ASV unbreakable levers
Pro-Grip Grips
Unifilter Airfilter
Works Connection frame guards
Wave Front Disc
Chain Gang rear sprocket (approx 10,000mi lifespan)
B&B exhaust baffle
Goodridge front brake line
Acerbis long range tank (for the desert trips in outback Australia http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=169841)




close up of the damper and speedo


with Acerbis 22L long range tank (16km/L economy offroad giving about 350km, or 218mi)




here's recent pic with the new Acerbis Cyclops headlight



In case you're wondering, the camping gear in the grey bag is all lightweight stuff; the bag weighes under 5kg; I carry/wear a backpack as well.


I may look into a set of dirtbagz for it......but now I've got the HP2 for longer range touring with more plush luggage capability

I really enjoy the XR400...they're a fantastic all-rounder; and were a good competitor to the DRZ400 (which now has no competitor in this class)

Thanks for creating the thread.
