so anyone have a fcr39 mounted on their 400? i'm getting the carb from my 426...i am hoping this will make my 400 feel more like a 400...
What about the yz426 compared to the crf?

wow, I did some modding to my 400sm this weekend, and WOW! it's amazing what cutting some plastic can do.

anyhow, my 400 feels like a 400cc bike now.

well first i did the pipe...no jetting. it was an added bit of power in the high range. was running super lean, so i'm sure that aided in power. Then i cut the 3x3 (no rejetting). WOW! huge difference in breathing. It made the bike definitely feel like it had more pep. Again super lean. Then FCR....ya buddy!

Make sure you have a frenchman around when you try to restart it....

well the full 3x3 is enlarging the airbox to 9 sq. in. by removing the snorkel and cutting a 3"X3" hole up there. then rejetting the carb.

I've had an FCR on order for almost a month now. After that, if I keep the bike, will be a big bore and cams.

I did the 3x3, rejet and exhaust, as soon as I got the bike so I have no real idea how bad it was before that point.

Stock 400 felt very underpowered. i don't think it was using all 400cc. I think once I get this thing totally tuned, and jetted properly, the FCR, with 3x3 and header will have been totally worth it. I am thinking about putting the stock silencer back on. The yoshi is just too loud.

yes, and now I can't get it back in! i spent several hours trying to get it in there, and it's just too tight. so i just decided not to try to put it back in.

, this sounds like a personal problem.

Have you tried putting it in when the exhaust is hot? I would there would be enough expansion to get it in.

sounds like a bad idea to me. i already have plenty of scars from hot exhausts.

the problem is actually getting the cap back on. the spark arrestor doesn't seem to line up properly, forcing the holes from the pipe and cap not to align.

I'm struggling to understand this concept.

An open pipe on a thumper is not for the introverted types for sure.

I think I'd much rather disturb the peace in silence. I've read from other sites that the yoshimura can doesn't provide much power over the stock can. There is weight savings, but much of the improvement came from my FMF header.

I think I'd just rather be able to sneak into work late...and not wake the entire office complex.

FWIW, I have a slight inclination that I am too lazy to install the stock can anyhow.

Wait a second, I just reread you post about the cap and am utterly confused. My spark arrestor did not require any cap removal. Just unscrewed the one screw on inside of exhaust and pulled out the arrestor.
