    Gen 2 Hitch plate/recovery point strength

    What grade are the bolts? This isn't something you want to guess on. The implications of a failed recovery point can be fatal, a fact driven home by the accident in AZ that went viral last week...

    SYMMETRY 4WD 99/00 NL Pajero/Montero LWB Gen 2.5 Blister Fender 2.8 TD 4M40 - South Africa - Build

    The only real trick is on the driver's side CV, on a LHD vehicle, be sure to shove the CV all the way into the front diff before giving it a good solid yank to pull it straight out so that the spring clip doesn't hang up. Definitely stick with and reboot the OEM CVs, they're much better built...

    SYMMETRY 4WD 99/00 NL Pajero/Montero LWB Gen 2.5 Blister Fender 2.8 TD 4M40 - South Africa - Build

    There should be a small metal plate riveted to the firewall at the back of the engine bay listing the model of motor, transmission, diff gearing, exterior color, etc. Also, I noticed in the title of this thread you indicated the truck is a TDI (Turbo Direct Injection), if it has the 4M40 I'm...

    Gearing - Making the XR400 a better "adventure" bike

    It seems this may actually pan out. I placed orders for the requisite two gears mentioned above and they've both just shipped; hoping they arrive from Japan and the Netherlands by early next week. It was about $125 USD for both of them, including international shipping, which is pretty cheap...

    The gen 2.5 looks so much better w/o the factory side cladding it got here in the USDM. What 5MT does it have, V5MT3?

    Advice on ADD/Adventure Driven Design & Siberian Bushings

    Luso would be a far better resource. Siberian bushings are well regarded and can be ordered directly from their site. Based on USDM Gen 2.5 VIN #s, they're known as V45W chassis, I'm not certain what differences there may or may not be between yours. You...

    Many years late to the party, but I've an XR400 I love for all the same reasons mentioned above, and in looking into addressing the same top end gearing dilemma stumbled upon not only this thread, but a similar one on ThumperTalk.

    Yeah, so this is happening...2.6 to '97 MS 2.4

    Seems to me you'd need to adapt a rack and pinion set up before going with the electric Prius conversion. I'm struggling to imagine how you'd make it work with it's current recirculating-ball steering configuration unless you can find a manual steering box that'll fit. I know there were...
