Very nice.

Why do you want so heavy/stiff springs? Are the forks from a CRF?

Fix that fancy new brake line before you rip it off. Will take about three minutes. And I agree those, 48 springs are very stout for 185lbs unless you have very very soft valving.

Oops that was the fork springs from the old stock forks. Still lighter than what racetech recomends.

New forks are from a 1999 CR250

Brake line is done. It's not actually my bike it's my buddies. I do the engine work. And assist with all the other stuff. I've toyed with buying it myself as it's for sale.

If I was closer I would want to take a hard look at that bike, that has to be a very nice pkg. If priced right you can't go wrong. The XR4 will always be in demand.

Question, are the sleeves pressed into our cylinders or are they a drop on deal? In the blowup, my piston expanded out the lower end of the sleeve and I'm wondering if it'll just be cheaper to find another cylinder and sleeve than to deal with this one. Just got a bottom end online for 425 with only 12 miles. Just gotta get new valves, do some headwork, and probably buy a new clutch pack

I am in the process of reassembling my 400 motor. What is everyone's opinion/recommendation on oiling piston, rings, cylinder when reassembling?

a light coat of oil on the cylinder, rings and piston skirt sounds reasonable to me.

How about wrist pin? assembly lube?

thanks

assembly lube works, just as regular motor oil..and start from the bottom up..that means crank wrist pin up thru the jug, rings, guides, and anything that moves in there

I use engine oil on all moving parts when I reassemble my engines. Has worked for me so far.

Well, kinda on the subject and thanks for the responses earlier.

I am planning on dual sporting my 400 and have a high output stator. What is the best head light option to take advantage of the upgraded stator? needing a high/low beam. I like the idea above just wondering what else is out there besides a ktm light....not that I am opposed to that.

Thanks,

if you want some really bright stuff, call that guy up.

Otherwise it is mostly DIY stuff. We just put dual 55W ebay HID into a trailtech X2 dual sport light that turned out well.

I have a ebay HID projector in my Husaberg that works really well, but I had to use a hole saw to my stock headlight

I have for many years used regular engine oil for the piston/rings , never a problem. Best to use non detergent oil, allows the rings to seat quickly. Assembly lube for the piston pin.

How do you tell if it is a non detergent oil?
