No air filters on the carbs? Sure there will be a lot of trouble free miles with that setup.

No XS400, but I'm a member so I thought I'd check this site out. Even found a few things I could throw in my two cents on.
Lots of things crossover.
I do have a 400, but it's not an XS400, it's a Honda CM400E.

maxim 400 is an xs400 btw, maxim is just a model of the xs400, such as my bikes as XS400 Seca's


I'm no expert but that doesn't sound good
