Evening all,

Thought I'd introduce myself as I'll probably need your technical info soon on my rebuild!

Friends dad gave ,e an old bike from his barn, 1991 xj400 imported to the uk in 1999.

17k km on the clock but hasn't ran in a 2-3 years, spent the last 10 days ordering parts and researching your site. I'm going for a cafe/ street tracker cross look when I'm done.

Bike is mostly stripped although in hindsight I probably should have got it running first. :!:

Bike is off the the fabricators next week then the powder coater!

Any tips on what to look for when I start to put it back together?

Thanks
Gkito

Hi Gkito, Welcome to the forum :)
Those 400's have almost as much power as the 600, Think they were Japan only models ( Japan had/has a 400cc max capacity Law )

Hi Mike! Thanks, and that’s good to know. Can I ask a question? Why can’t I view some photos or links/topics?

you need more posts, some topics are locked until your post count is up to 5, post a couple more times and they should unlock :)
