XS400 - (77-82)

XS400 - (77-82)

The XS400 shared almost every aspect of build with it's smaller brothers, the XS250 & 360. It was equipped with a 6-speed transmission, Wet plate, 6 friction disk clutch, chain drive, tachometer, self-canceling turn signals, both electric and kick starters, adjustable rear shock absorbers, center stand, and an automatic fuel petcock. Early and economy models came with spoked wheels and drum brakes, while later and upgraded models received cast alloy wheels and hydraulic disc brakes. Later models also upgraded the early mechanical points ignition system to a modern solid state electronic system.

As is customary, the number in the model name indicates the engine displacement. Aside from displacement, the 250cc, 360cc, and 400cc variants were mostly identical except for some economy-minded XS250s and XS360s which omitted the electric starter and self-canceling turn signals. The upgraded Special, Maxim, and Heritage trim levels included styling changes such as stepped seats, megaphone-style exhaust pipes, and swept-back handlebars. No matter which year make or model XS you have, it's the perfect candidate for a Cafe Racer!
