I don't about SM's but I have a street legal xr650r and did have a street legal xr400. Both are fun, the 650 is more powerfull so it works better in the wide open. In the city either one is a zippy enough machine. If I had to choose one or the other, I'd take the 650 because it just works better when you need power.

XR650 is tops on the power and weight scales. Great bike for urban assault, side roads, canyons any long distance road or desert rides. Kick starting a big 650 single takes some technique.

XR400 offers medium power and middle weight. Great bike for urban assault, side roads, canyons and medium distance rides. Kick starting a 400cc single much easier.

Both are good bikes. What's best kind of depends on your need.
