Actually i went riding with my mate who has the XR400 last weekend..we swapped bikes (first time in ages that I've ridden another bike) Well after we swapped back, I was glad..he was really pissed off that he had to get back on his. hehe.
The 01 has some significant changes to it as well accross the range. Depends on the money you want to spend.
But remember..there is no looking back after you jump on the DUB-R!

The 2001 adds lots of changes for the 426 motor (clutch, valve springs, gearing, carb, etc). The only non-cosmetic changes that I could see to the rest of the bike were new valves in the suspension to improve damping characteristics. The 426 also gives you a different seat cover, a chrome muffler rather than black and a head pipe that gives you better access for oil changes. Oh and the 426 has more torque and power. Frankly, most people can't make use of all the power of even the 400.
