As you'll now, I now own TP's trusty XR400. I love it, but felt it needed some aesthetic modernisation. So, a list to santa was made:

. YZF426 front mudguard
. Acerbis tail tidy
. Polisport headlight assy
. custom stickers
. Renthal Full Waffle grips
. Renthal grip donuts
. 6x5 Number plate

and Santa delivered! and it looks wonderful very happy with it.

Nice improvements Ben makes the bike look much better.

Has the acerbis tail tidy got the built in LED tail light?

That would have been ideal Steve, but he left it all to me!

Yes, LED light it built into the tail tidy

I think it's still a good looking bike in a brutish sort of way.

Its an awesome and very capable bike- it proved itself at the peaks, making light work of climbs and rocks

Just need to firm up the front end as I did bottom the forks out and hear the mudguard rub the tyre!

The next task will be the dreaded swingarm pivot! I want to get the bearings swapped soon before they do develop any play, as the DRZ was a mare due to the heat they generate when failing. I bet its still on std bearings. If the rear wheels just began to get a bit of play, they'll not be far behind

I agree with the swingarm pivot, so you'll be needing to utilise the various grease ports placed around the area to help it.... also don't underestimate the power of hydraulics when being pumped into these places, it's awesome.
Oh and yes you can borrow a grease gun but remember where it lives!

the bearings look to be packed with grease, but a re pack won't do any harm it is mainly the linkage bearings that concern me, not the pivot itself. let's see

Have a good trawl through the ADV XR400 thread, and you'll see that seized pivots can and quite often happen.

Now sporting the original tank to make it lighter for my dodgy knee and tidied up the electric in the front end as they were fouling the oil cooler. It lets the headlight assembly fit a lot neater in my opinion.
