Hi, Seandoyle99 I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fronk Forks---Plunk
8. Gears---WHINE
9. Head Gasket---HISS
10. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
11. Pistons---SLAP
12. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
13. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
14. Solid Lifters---TICK
15. Starters---CLICK
16. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

Xjr 400 throttle wide open but only getting 1000 rpm. Had to clutch start it to get it to turn on. Suggestions?

That\'s a pretty broad question. Are you firing on all cylinders? I\'m gonna guess not and if so, why not. Got fresh fuel? Determine which cylinder(s) are not firing by flinging a little water (or spit) on the exhaust pipes right out of the cylinder, which one(s) are cold? On the cold ones check for spark, are the plugs wet or bone dry? If you have spark you need to dig into the fuel system, no spark=ignition. Try these steps and write back. Good luck.

Clearance for inlet and exhaust valve adjustment

Hi there,

Not sure about clearance levels, but can tell you there is no English manual for the XJR 400 - only Japanese. Try the XJR owners club. It's full of troubleshooting questions answered in the forums.

Hope this helped
