View Full Version : 2 into 1 intake single carb XS400 chop

First post, but I've learned a lot around here. Too much. I'll never get done this thing...

Thought someone might be interested in an XS400 chop, there are not too many around. I started this about a year ago and ran it all last summer rough.

This winter I painted it, etc. The paint is just a spray can job.

One of my favorite projects is the 2 into 1 intake. It was done for no other reason than I like the way it looks, and I like building.

It is not finished just yet, it still needs to be painted or wrapped or something, I havn't decided.

The intake is made from a pre-made mandrel bent J 1.5" . I welded it together and coated the welds with JB Weld as a precaution, as aluminized pipe does not weld great. There are rings brazed that clip into the slots in the intake boots. The carb to intake boot is a plumbing fitting (don't tell anyone).

The carb is the stock unit with bigger jets and adjusted needle position.

The air filter housing is a Mr.Gasket 1bbl/2bbl unit. It is mounted with a flange that I built out of exhaust pipe.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the build and can't wait to ride.
