    XS400 front fender bolts

    Hello. I got an 1981 xs400 that came with no front fender. I purchased an aftermarket fender that I love the look of but I need to find the bolts to attach it. I don't live close to a motorcycle shop and was wondering what size the bolts were and if I could get them from the hardware store

    xs400 front fender with 19" wheel

    Does anyone know if the fender from an xs400 Maxim will fit an 81 xs400SH with a 19" wheel. Or if there is a good option for the front fender with a 19" wheel installed. I have installed Maxim wheels, but now need a fender that will work. Thanks,

    Hey guys I have some cracks on the side of my fender. It's directly ontop of the brace that's underneath the front fender. I don't know how to solidly fix this. Should I just paint it primer and see how it goes? Also I don't know what to do with the moth of the tank. I could tape it but I don't...

    Need help with custom parts

    Hey guys. I'm going to be buying a 1980 Yamaha xs400 special and I'm incredibly new to motorcycles in general. I want my bike to look very similar to this when it comes to the seat in this picture but I don't know names of anything. I don't know where to look for fenders and gauges and seats...
