Hello! I’m New here, this is my first post.
I’ve seen some RD400’s with a different caliper and brake rotor. Can anyone direct me to who/where I can get this? Thanks in advance 👍

Anything is possible with access to a machine shop.
Google what upgrades others have done to their RDs.

All balls makes various stem bearings that you can use to swap over a new front end... keep in mind the fork length however and note that USD forks are a waste of money.

The customization possibilities and combinations are nearly endless! provided you have really deep pockets or the ability to make things and have no interest in keeping it relatively original.

The suspension and brakes on your bike now are the ones that were made and tuned specifically for it and are typical of the era in which the bike was built.
What is it you are trying to achieve with this bike, are you planning to street ride it, track race it, or just make it look fancy by tacking modern components on it?
