When I pushed it down and hit it w/ the air wrench, you could feel it turning the dampening assy inside initially, I just compressed it a little more and it snugged right up, you can torque it but I didn't, it was easy to tell that it was tight.

The air gun wasn't very powerfull and I set to low torque.

It is real easy to inspect your clutch, just remove the side cover and look to see if the plates are correctly installed, and if they are not, real easy to loosen up the bolts and pull the inner plate out and move the top plate over one notch.


Correct




WRONG!!

Adding my name to the XR4 riders proclaiming the value of having the outermost clutch plate indexed correctly (staggered).
It drops into gear more smoothly, and it's easier to find Neutral at a dead stop.

Hey Doc when Travis put the new rear spring on my XR he said the bolts for the bring were still nice and oily. He did not try the swing arm one but said those moved so easy he figured the swing arm bolts had to come out nice and easy. Still need to try it but i have some hope.

Doc is the man with the XR's. I am glade he lives in AR.

For all you XR400R fans, there's an almost mint condition one on consignment in San Rafael, CA. Head over to Mojotown for a look-see (I have no affiliation with the store, apart from being a very satisfied customer).

Help! Anyone have an Edelbrock Pumper Carb with a spare 16 or 17 needle? I love the carb but Edelbrock stopped making them and are running out of parts. All they had left was an 18, and with it all the way lean it still runs way too rich. Thanks - Doug

Just found this on my frame, pretty bummed. I thought this was in better shape, should've looked closer before I bought it. Is it repairable?

It is repairable, don't be to bummed. XR4 frames are made of mild steel, easy to weld.

XR4 frame rust in not uncommon, do a search.

Haha I've seen, what's the best method? Cut and add tubing or just cut half tubing and add over the bad spot?

Compression?

Went to look at a 1999 XR400, to buy. Looked good, but went to kick it through and seemed to be down on compression. I could easily push it through with my hand. Started OK, and idled, did not smoke, and had good power. Thought the compression release might be over adjusted and the owner didn't have any wrenches. Hard to imagine that.

Any thoughts on this or pretty normal? As I recall my XR250R did not kick as easy as this.
