Just looking for some info on this bike. I picked it up last year for $150 off Cl locally. I think it's a 78. I've always wanted one of these vintage yamies. The thing didn't run when I got it. After cleaning the carb the thing fired right up and runs good. I had the seat recovered, clutch cable, and throttle cable were replaced. It needs a new needle, seet, silencer, and rear tire.
So, my question was is the 400 a pretty reliable runner ? Are they rare? I never see to posts on the yz400. Always seems to be the 250 or 490. How does the 400 compare to the 250?
94 Banshee, 4mil, dune/trail port, 35mmcarbs, procircuits, YFZ450 front end, etc...
2000 Banshee (currently pc-ing & fresh top end)
86 Tri-Z (putting the finishing touches on it)
