Now that the DRZ is basically fully sorted, I'm back on the RD400 after a year or so hiatus. Very excited to be getting back into this thing. First up will be rebuilding the motor, then I'll tackle the chassis. I'm tearing down the motor and getting fresh pistons, seals, gaskets, and upgrading to an electronic ignition setup.Obviously it'll get some fresh paint as well.

The bike is pretty close to being ready for Black River Stages at the end of September. This next race has a lot of night stage action so I swapped the buell headlight out for some VisionX Optimus Rounds. Also swapped the accordion boots for some KTM fork guards. These required a bit of fitting but seem to be all sorted. I also rebuilt the forks with new bushings and seals.
