Hi infrapista, nice ride, it`s possible to put SR500 parts on your XS400 - so you get spokewheels - but you get a drumbrake rear - if you want also front. Do it with 18" rims - works perfect. You can ride front 110 and rear 140 - if you like this. Any Question - send a mail.

Hi Infrapista,

at the end of August, i place two SR 500 swingarms at e-bay, one version with brakestopper up and one with brakestopper down. They are complet rebuild cleaned, sandblasted and 2 times powdercoated ( gloss black).
If you like to have one i can inform you before. Price will be 30,- ( with brakestopper ) and complet with new bearing 55,-.
So you need one to use a SR rearwheel!
