Default xs400 vs. xj400

All right, what's the difference between these two bikes? I'm having trouble sourcing parts for the DOHC XS400, but it looks like the XJ Maxim is actually the bike I'm working on. Ways to tell the difference...?

The difference between the bikes would be 2 cylinders- XJs have 4 cylinders.

Are you sure? That makes sense, but I keep finding references to the DOHC XS400 as being the same as the XJ400 in some markets. I thought I'd figured out why my parts are always wrong. It's driving me nuts!

Got it - this thread from the XJ helped immensely:
