“Buy one!”

Written on: 25/04/2014 by tntslayer (1 review written)

Being 16 I have not ridden as many bikes as maybe some adults but I have ridden a fair amount and I must say that I love this bike more then my yz450f i use for motocross. Its reliable has some nice low end and when im done on the trail I can just ride home without the fear of being pulled over. The only complaint i have was the front fork but i got that fixed by revalving it. The breaks are nice and strong they could be a little better. Mine I bored it out to a 420 put a stage one cam into it… Read Full Review

“95 XR400R”

Written on: 01/03/2014 by CMXR (1 review written)

I recently sold my XR400R and miss it already. Reliable, low maintanance and plenty of juice with the exhaust de restricted. Smooth on the road and heaps of grunt on the dirt. The fuel tank eventually gave out, new one necessary. Motorcycle goodies had all the OEM parts online including original tank stickers. Honds kept the same design for a long time for good reason, they got it right!!! CM… Read Full Review

“Love my xr 400 !!”

Written on: 13/05/2013 by xrspanker (1 review written)

Have been into bikes since in was 14 yrs old - 49 now, the xr 400 would be the best bike i have ever owned, having owned quite a few different bikes over the years. I have a set of "fat" bars fitted, heavier springs in the front end ( found it was a bit soft for my liking )a power pipe and the best mod of all, was to fit a Mikuni pumper carbi to sort out the slight hesitation when cracking the throttle open, now the power is instant !! The only thing i don't really like is it can be a bit… Read Full Review

I was into motocross for many years and aways took the p-xx out of four strokes saying "I'll never get one of those!!!"....I think back to those days and have a proper good laugh at myself for being led by all the other 2t sheep. If I knew what I know now I could have saved myself £ £ £ £ £ £ in repairs, pistons, main ends etc etc.....If you want one of the most reliable enduro bikes out there, grab a good xr, you will have all the fun at a fraction of the… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/09/2008 by Westmorden (1 review written)

"Buy one before they all the good ones go"! Having read about this legend machine I recently bought an example from 97 and I love it. It had been de-restriced by the last owner with a straight through pipe and larger jet but it had a slight hesitation at 80kph and was quite hard to start from cold. After reading about the XR's starting issues I took mine down to the local Honda garage and after he re-jetted it back to the std size it fires easily when cold and hot. The bike is comfortable, has… Read Full Review

I have an '04 XR400R and it really is the best bike I have owned. Was on XR250's for years and they were great, but this is hands down better in every area. Cheap, goes fine and so reliable you hardly ever have to look at it... if people were being honest with themselves nearly everyone would have one. Truly a shame they aren't being made any more.

Written on: 07/11/2007 by dinkydar (1 review written)

I bought my Honda XR400R new in 98 and have rode it on snow, sand, rocks, through rivers, road, deserts and motorcross tracks and have jumped it over tabletops and ski jumps just like my first CR125.....and it's never ever let me down!

I change the oil and filter every 1000km and tyres and chains as and when, and grease it up once a year, but thats it!

If you drop it nothing breaks.....just pick it up and carry on! I've put an aluminium bash plate under the engine for piece of mind and a… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2007 by xrrider (1 review written)

Wow! I love my 2004 Honda XR400R! The engine has loads of power, I can wheely off the throttle in first and second gear! I've had a white brothers exhaust fitted and it sounds even better, it's nice and quiet when your just pottering around, then when you wind her back, it roars like nothing I've ever heard before!

I bought this bike because I wanted a low maintenance bike, I thought it wouldn't be as quick as my mate's CCM/DRZ, but it actually has more power and loads more bottom end grunt!… Read Full Review

Philip Underwood's Response to xrrider's Review

Written on: 06/05/2009

I completely agree. I have a 2005 Honda XR 400 and love it! Built like no other bike. Sounds like no other bike. will last longer than any other bike - just magic! I get fed up with hearing about how much trouble people have from there bikes. You want a fast bike, buy a KTM. But if you want to finish the race, buy a Honda. I rode my XR to a the enduro - raced for 4 hours and rode home! Typical Honda! Its not slow anyway, obviously heavier than the modern day four strokes, however, I use mine on the rode too. Can race it or ride it longer distance. The choice is yours. This is a bike you spend more time riding and enjoying and surely thats what Dirt Biking is all about. I will always have it. Now Honda have stopped making them, I am one of the lucky ones to have one from new. Put it with my first bike - my 1977 XR 75! Another bike that has never let me down! My advice to you is find a good one, buy it and just keep it! You deserve it I am sure!!<br/>

“I have set this bike up to fit me with taller bars,...”

Written on: 25/07/2007 by T Bone (1 review written)

I have set this bike up to fit me with taller bars, taller seat, larger pegs, heavier fork springs, and adding a fork brace made a huge difference. By opening up the intake on the airbox, changing the spark arrestor to the free flowing HRC unit from the early models, and changing out the main, and pilot jet as well as the needle made for crisper throttle response and increased boost overall. Disc protection and a skid plate are a good investment if you ride in rocks. For a non-race bike, I have… Read Full Review
