Between the 650r and 950, the 400s is feeling very under powered and somewhat boring to ride.

Its completely bone stock, no airbox mods (only a gutted exhaust)

any ideas?

Been told the FCR/3x3 header and exhaust will do the trick... Is the FCR needed?

Winter Riding

Anybody do any serious riding/commuting during the winter? I'm thinking of building another set of 21/18 wheels strictly for winter use, and curious about tire choices that would be adequate for both dry/wet street use as well as snow. Probably not going the studded route, as these won't be for snow only. Leaning towards something like the Heidenau (sp?) K60....

Do the 3X3 mod, get a jet kit, do the needle, and bigger main jet, turn your fuel screw out to 2.75 turns, get a MRD/SSW and the Hot Cams, will make a real nice noticable difference,

The FCR is another great mod, that will compliment the MRD/SSW and Hot Cams for sure, if you can afford it, go for it.

I still run the stock carb, cause the bike runs so well, pulls really strong, is able to do 100mph and climb anything, and i still get 55mpg.

Just was giving my shinko 244s a look over and noticed the front tire has a max speed rating off 75mph! and rear 94mph.

Kinda surprised a DOT tire could have a max speed rating that low

Yep, but have no worries, they handle 90's just fine, i take my bike in the 90's every single time i ride, they do well, am on my 2nd set now, will pick up another set once these wear down, really happy with them, they do very well off road too imo.

Well, if you want easy cheap mod, change your gearing to 14/47, I was pleased with it for a long time until I blew my engine...

Now I run 434 bb, fcr-mx, stg 2 hot cam intake, emodel ex. cam, 3x3, fmf poewrbomb header, with 14/47. If you look at the throttle shell lift the front end in 1st through 3rd. Very smooth power gains throughout the band not peaky anywhere. Havent done a top speed yet still breaking it in, dont know actual HP or torque yet, but she walks a 530 exc up to 65 where I backed down, kept up with a gsxr until 40.

Ive said it a million times, gearing is a simple mod, but if you only do one thing to the bike, get the fcr-mx.
