    1976 Yamaha DT-400 Enduro

    Does any one here own one. I have the chance to pick up a fairly nice DT400 and was wanting some opinions on reliability, maintenance and some pros and cons.

    I had a '78 DT 400, Just sold it last summer, I loved that bike, a great little rider, the 400cc 2 stroke delivers really nice power, great for buzzing around town or hitting the trails. Not really a great bike for all out motocross, nor a very good bike for serious freeway travel, a bit light and underpowered for the interstate, but great in town. Honestly wish I still had mine.
    Here is a video of my '78 DT 400

    Then something must have been wrong, IMO. That bike should be good for another 10-15 mph w/stock gearing - not that you'd want to run at 75 mph for any length of time. Did he have a big sprocket on the back end?

    The bike in the pic is sweet. Wish it was available in my neighborhood.

    well that tells something , im betting that they put a tall tail on it . my dt 250 would do 75+ wide out .
    the only big bike i had that was real slow for its size was my honda cb 550 k . it was a slug 55mph maxed out red line 5th gear . my yahama 100 could out run the thing . never could figure out why it was so slow
