I just sold a 400ex to CK here back in the winter time. It was a blast to ride, but things suck, so I had to get rid of it. Anyways, I seemed to have struck gold with some miracle combination when I had it. I raced a few 450r's, Predators, Raptors, and even a Banshee and if I couldn't beat them, it was a dead-even race at 100yds. Anyways, the combo was easy.

Wiseco "Superstock" 12:1 piston w/ the XR400 base gasket
Hotcams Stage 1 cam (I have a spare one of these sitting around, if you're interested)
Yoshimura full exhaust system ("Comp System")
White Brothers "White Power" CDI box
K&N Filter with outerwears, open airbox
-1 tooth on the front sprocket
Might have the numbers way off, but I think it was jetted at 168 main, 54 pilot, and the c-clip moved down a notch.

That thing would rip a wheelie with my fat ass on it in any gear, but was still VERY rideable in the woods or at Silver Lake. Wouldn't over heat or spark knock (had to run ~110 octane in it though).

In any case, you've got the easiest mod-able quad out there, next to a Banshee. Have fun with it!

Well it was everthing you said. I have only been able to ride it a few times but it is pretty quick and likes to keep the front wheels in the air.

It is going to the dunes in a few weeks. I am hoping to get some paddles for it by then.

Great bike love it.



I like the black looks great.

Not to hijack the thread, but if you're looking for paddles, try and find a set of 8-paddle tires. I had the Kenda Geckos on it for a while, then tried a 10 paddle setup. Both the Geckos and the 10 paddles rob too much power. I borrowed a set of 8 paddles from a friend and there's barely any power loss.

The black definitely lends itself to the "stealth" look. Looks kinda neat, like some of the "Limited Edition" Banshees and Craptors.

Where as Polished and/or Chrome (be careful, scientific stuff coming out here) has been proven to A: "get ya home" and B: win more races on the drag strip. Don't believe it? Go to the sand drags, and watch how many Banshees or 250Rs with polished frames, chrome cool-heads, chrome swingarms, chrome trucknutz, etc... win the races.

The black on the wheels dosent match the black plastics so I would personally go with the polished.
