    XS250 exhaust

    micron used to do a 2 in 1 , if you keep scouring the ebay ads one will turn up the 400 will be the same. make sure you get the correct year as they changed in 1983 to dohc
  2. you might be right as regards the engine, its not too far from me either

    XS250 exhaust

    the whole exhaust or the silencers? 2 in2 or 2 in1 ? be great if you can ay hello in new members section and a photo of your bike coz we like photos. place an add in the wanted section when you've decided what you actually need
  4. sometimes breakers may do it. There's one on https://worsley.cylex-uk.co.uk/company/the-bikers-warehouse-13845097.html I got a frame off them years ago and they have mechanics onsite, could do an engine swap?

    Tyres...

    mine were £200 fitted, but they just came out and a deal at the time. They make the tread wider as the tyre wears, bit like an inverse tread pattern I suppose.
  7. are you the son of J R Hartley?
  8. looking at that route, it may make sense to book something in carlise and something on the east coast. seeing as I'm not going away this year, sod the expense. lets see what happens in the next week or so

    Tyres...

    i have the R5's on mine and as they are asymetric have a harder centre and gradual stickiness on the sides for the corners. I mainly got them for the wet weather performance but i know they'll be better then me so i won't overcook them. nice and stable too

    XS400 spoke wheels

    no idea, you'd have to get measurements off the vendor and see if the chain line works too
  12. that's why I suggested Keilder, its in England, I know it touches scotland, but lets be naughty https://www.adventurebikerider.com/this-motorcycle-route-in-northern-england-offers-some-of-britains-best-riding/
  13. bikes nearly finished, i took my time as nothing to ride to. As we can go camping in the UK from 4th July now, maybe we can organise somewhere? Still up for Kielder, if anyone lives up that way to organise a ride out.
  14. and clean the tank/fit an inline filter
  15. that's smoking in the gloaming
  16. Ken, did the NW500 a few years ago, loved it. Nice the 850 although I have a soft spot for the 750. I think it was the colours it were in. Do you get to go to the Bonfest at Kirriemuir?
  17. Ignore Jimmy, he's pulling your leg. Welcome to the forum
  18. have a soft set on my fz600 . mine have a strap and this is fitted under the seat to get trapped there. this holds them in place you can put some bungie cords to stop the bottom flapping around
  19. to the site. this is just for intros. if you can proffer your question in the relevant sections in the forum this will save this area for the intros thanks
  20. cool, sounds like a great project. some nice plethora of bikes you have there too
