    This bike is looking bloody great. The bash plate really ties in the tail and the tank and balances it out nicely. :thumbsup:

  9. It took me 6 months to put it together and 47 minutes to take it apart. I will finish tearing the frame down, then I need to finish all the welds I couldn't get to with the engine in. And start prepping for paint. In the mean time I will be rebuilding the forks and cleaning up the wheels and mounting tire etc.......So much to do. I also need to clean/paint/polish the engine. It doesn't really have any oil leaks or mechanical problems, so I think I am just going to run it as is for the summer. I will save the go fast bits for something to do next winter if I get bored.

  10. I finished stripping down the frame. I ran into a bit of an engineering snafu when I tried to remove the rear shock. I put one of my sub frame braces in the way of the shock bolt. I had to notch the tubing to remove it....doh! I think I figured out how to fix it. I don't have any pictures of that yet. I did glass up my seat pan so I can get it off to the "seat guy". I also pulled my forks apart and installed new seals and dust seals. The springs and guide bushings were within specs according to the manual. I cleaned up the fork lowers. I decided not to polish them since this is going to be a "dirty" bike. I put in some fresh bel-ray fork oil and 8psi on top of that, then some seal savers and the forks are ready for action. I also picked up my paint today.

    I read somewhere on here that the German DOHC models had more HP because of the governor set differently. The others have different HP[lower]for some reason.It was in an article about the history of the xs400s. lha

    I know in the sohc it was the cams where the power was reduced, poss the same for the DOHC

    deleting rockers and having cams push valves with washers help in friction loss
     
  19. Today I dropped my seat pan off to get upholstered. I might start painting this weekend. I Have Yamaha Blue, white, and Crystal grey(metallic silver). Any ideas for a paint scheme. At the moment I'm thinking about painting the frame Blue and the tank and hump silver with some type of blue or white accents. The front fender and headlight will be blue. Any pics or suggestions will be appreciated.
     
  20. i got to spend all day in the garage today!! I finished painting the bike. I think it turned out awesome. I was to tired to take any pictures. I will get some posted up soon.
