XR100R powerband

Recommended Posts

When you talk about a powerband you are really just saying the point at which the engine makes the most power with the given rpms of that gear. An xr100 does have a powerband but it's not as noticeable when riding. I couldn't tell you the color though. A red powerband would mean high in the rpms which I don't believe is true. I hope this helped you understand what is meant by a powerband though. I know it wasn't the best way to answer your question but maby you could answer it yourself with this info.

Ok. Yeah I wasn't too sure about the powerband. Some people said they don't have one as well,

Which is why they are so fun. Thanks, Matt

What mine was a legit answer

really? " A red powerband would be high rpm power". Do you crash a lot?

Powerband is not a tangible object.

Its like asking what color redline the bike has.

Have a friend who I've explained this to many times (he rides a 2t), yet he'll still come in from riding and say "man, I wish my truck had a powerband"

a red power band is where the engine hits it's peak performing rpms. If it is set at a higher rpm its a red powerband. That's what I was told. And if you don't crash you don't ride hard enough.

There is not 1 ounce of sense or truth in what you were told. Plain and simple a powerband is the range of rpm's where the engine is making peak horsepower/torque, it has no color, nobody sells aftermarket ones, and you cannot buy one and install it on your bike. It is a running joke in the m/c industry among knowledgeable people to tease the noobs about all things powerband. Congrats,.................you've been duped! Edited by ickfinger

I didn't understand what color powerbands were because I guess they didn't exist but I was still right in the powerband and what it was.

Dont forget to change out the winter air in the tires for summer air. It's a lot lighter

A stock 80/100 has a red powerband. The best high performance powerband is a 10 inch front tire tube. stretch it over the power-pullies and fill it with helium or nitrogen. I wouldn'tuse nitrogen because of the dangers. But I highly recommend helium.

Helium nor Nitrogen pose a threat, but Hydrogen or Oxygen can cause a bang....

Oh, and red is best 'cause we all know that red is hot...or is it? Maybe Bunsen burner blue is hotter....

I swapped out my helium tube for the neon green powerband. What a difference. Looked like my power pullies were pretty worn. I'm gonna try getting Rid of the band and pully system and run tiny chains and sprockets. I'll let you know how it works!
