I don't think it will be an easy swap. I believe the rotor mounting pattern changed, and the rotor is a different size too. Neither the 250 rotor or the 400 rotor would work with both the wheel and...

If it's already had two oil changes, you shouldn't need to do it again at 600mi.



By doing the early oil change(s), the engine is probably a little better off than following the manual's...

While you're in there, you might want to look at upgrading to a MOSFET R/R. The design is less susceptible to heat failure, plus it's more efficient so it generates less heat to begin with, a...

The headlight circuit isn't too complicated, though it does have a few things to trip you up.

The relay keeps the headlight turned off when you first turn the key on. One of the yellow wires from...

Yes, the stock fork springs are progressive. I thought I took some pics when I swapped in my RaceTech springs, but I can't seem to find any.

I don't see any traces of coolant from above in your pic, but check out Cylinder coolant seal issues to make sure you don't have a leak there.

Cylinder coolant seal issues

Another issue seems to be getting more common on the 400s. The rubber seal for the coolant passage between the crankcase and the cylinder jug can deform, causing a small coolant leak on the front of...

I'm pretty sure you'll never find a 2,000 lumen T10 bulb. A 55W H4 headlight bulb is about 1,100 lumens. A standard 194 bulb should be about 25 lumens.

Budget shock upgrade - GSXR fits the 400 too

The current GSXR shock is nearly a drop-in on the 400, and seems to fit even better than on previous models. I'm sure that an Ohlins, K-Tech, etc. is better, but it's hard to beat the value of a...

I just wanted to point out that the EX500 spring has more coils, so it's actually softer than the PreGen spring. The numbers I've seen are 300lb/in compared to 440lb/in.
