Hey guys I'm slowly building up a list of things to buy from mikesxs including new jets, brake pads and other various items to rebuild my bike. I noticed my gas tank was missing one of the front dampers, in place of it was just electrical tape wrapped around several times. I Also noticed I dont have the rear tank damper at all and I think from the manual there is also suppose to be a third damper on the frame towards the rear of the tank.

I know what the front dampers are suppose to look like but I have no idea what the 2 rear ones look like since mine never came with them. Can someone take a picture of theirs to show me? Or if possible provide a link to where I can purchase replacement dampers. Thanks.
 
Rear rubber.:)

ok so I received my rear tank damper and mounted it. I feel like its still missing a damper in this area I circled with red. Is there suppose to be something there? :wtf: I havent seen any pictures of anyone else with 79 xs400f showing anything there. Could anyone chime in? pictures possibly? Thanks!

I love this forum! I've just learned I am missing this rubber piece as well.

So the one at Mike's is the one then?

Thanks for posting your question Sly!
 
Mine isnt missing but it had desentigrated to crap so I`ll need to replace mine at some point also.I can not beleive the prices for the little rubber pieces on these bikes.
