Just got hold of a yz400 which i'm currently restoring. here's a few pics from the build
replaced every bearing as all were shot the engine seems sweet though having just had 4th 5th gears done. had frame/swinger powdercoated. Ohlins shock was found cheap on fleabay and was a bargain at 140. so that should sort the rear out, front seems ok, but will see once its rebuilt. will keep this thread updated weekly, cheers


here's what it looked like when i bought her last month


frame and swinger powdercoated and ohlins shock fitted



engine bits painted for a bit of bling! also fitted silicone hoses today as well

hey, nice build, i've been working on mine pretty much every day for the last 3 weeks its getting there now, i'm now upto to the point of painting and graphics, i can't decide now on colour of main body panels, thinking of going white to offset against the black wheels and frame

YZ400F Supermoto graphics

after having a nightmare of what colour to do the panels i decided on Rover Pagent Blue, i hit it with 3 coats of base and 3 top coats of clear, i painted the rear fender white they have also been slightly cut down to follow frame lines

Graphics finally in!!

graphics came today, took my time i used soapy water and heat gun, very easy using this method, wot you guys think i like it , looks modern and fresh, hell of a difference and all this rebuild took about 4 weeks from start to finish! got some handguards and front plate to fit now!

Great looking bike! How's it been running/have any more pics? I just started my sumo conversion and love the black frame/swinger/sub frame.

How'd the powder coating go? Just strip and send to them? Any idea on price for all that?

Thanks and congrats on a stellar bike:D
