Re: 96' XR400 Mint Condition - Street Legal

FWIW, this bike was in front of me two days ago. David wanted me to look it over, install a new battery, and help bleed the front brakes... (New master cylinder)

This bike is 100%. It still is a one-kick-cold bike.

If a person can not start it the first try, its not the bike, its the leg.

It has a brand new li-ion battery, and will now do a front flip if you grab too much front brake, and are too far up on the tank Lol. Not quite, but I got the back wheel up, and I was in the middle of the seat, and weigh 230

Re: 96' XR400 Mint Condition - Street Legal

Thx Aaron.

I need to make room and I need cash, so lets make a deal asap.

Someone will be very happy.

I also have an 02' XR400 that was only ridden on 6 rides and sat for years. I just started going through it and had the carb professionally cleaned at AF1, changed air filter, oil and filter...Has a pumper carb, beautiful gold Excel rims and a bunch of spare parts including spare rims. I'd sell all of that for $2K cash. Have them both for $4,500 or make me a fair offer.

I must move these out of my garage this week, so come look at them...make me an offer.

Re: 96' XR400 Mint Condition - Street Legal

I just listed this on eBay for $2,475. Let me know asap if you're interested! Make an offer. It needs to go within the next week.

Here's the eBay link. Not sure if it's set-up in the right category, so easiest to just click or share this link if you know anyone interested. Thanks.

Re: 96' XR400 Mint Condition - Street Legal

She was very cool. And started it on the 3rd kick. And then later she took it for a second spin and started it on the 1st kick.

She came back and said "I'll take it"! She's gonna love it. You built and awesome bike Aaron!

(If anyone is looking for an XR400, I still have the 02', see my ad on this site. Let me if interested know before I change my mind about selling it.)

Re: 96' XR400 Mint Condition - Street Legal

I'm not gonna sit here and say I don't regret selling it. I'll especially feel that way when I'm sending my head off this winter for stainless valves. That said, I love my KTM, and refuse to look back.

It was good getting to ride the xr400 the other day. Mind of reinforced my reason to get a bigger bike.

Compared to the 525, the Xr feels like a mountain bike, and its pretty dang snappy, for an xr400. (Ride a bone stock one, and you will see what I mean.)


You did exain to her that I can start it in one kick, and the after the evolution of her kicking technique she will too, right?

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

She's a trooper! She's so excited about the bike! She even wants to take it to Hidden Falls. Love her enthusiasm.
