I don't understand your question fully. If you use a true 400 crank, you'll have to turn the mains down. If you're talking about a SCAT 383 crank, it's just that, they're own version of the 400 with smaller mains, same with any after market 383 crank. Keep in mind you'll need different pistons for the new stroke as well, the old 350 pin location no longer works.
