    Hopefully my bike will be roadworthy this summer, however I doubt I'll be riding until next year as I can't afford license and insurance.

      You'll want to start a thread in the Garage to share information about your bike and get feedback on it.

      Apparently a stock bike can hit 95+ so you shouldn't have to modify the bike to improve on what you're seeing.
      Get the manual and start checking that things are within spec. Start with compression (wet and dry), valves, and piston clearances if you take the top end off.

      You'll want to start a thread in the Garage to get help on this.
      More information will be needed to help diagnose the problem but you're probably looking at taking off the carbs and cleaning them. Some history on the bike is good too. Have you ever cleaned the carbs? If not you might as well do that first.

    Hey monkey, I am too a Michigan based xs400 owner. I'd like to ask you some questions about your experience with the xs400.
