Is my bike an xr80 or xr100

Recommended Posts

It says it's an xr80 but nothing I bought to get it running fit for the xr80 but did for the xr100. Theys are the numbers on the motor.

I've looked everywhere theys are the only numbers I found

Should be on the side halfway up where the cylinder meets the engine .

Look on the side of the cylinder by the base. It should say something like 79cc cause they round it off

Now you just need to figure out if it is a 100 frame or an 80 frame. They are almost identical.

Look at the very end of the seat rails in back. They will look like they have little three inch extensions at the end for a 100 frame.

100 runs a longer swingarm and fender hangs a bit farther back.

Your wheels should be a 19/16" (100 size) or 16/14" (80 size)

I don't see any extensions looks like there's treaded holes on the back of the frame below the seat. It's got a 19/14" hahaa and it looks like the front forks were swapped out because the nut on top is missing.

Yes looks like an 80 frame. Gt that top nut on the fork stem. Maybe check that the bearings are lubed while your at it.

What happened to the airbox? Does it have a pod type?

It may handle funny with the big front wheel

Isn't there a VIN plate on the headstock, ahead of the
fuel tank and in between the upper/lower triple clamps.

 

While there may have been some modifications, the
plate ought to tell you what the bike was first built to be.

There is but it has a big gouge through the center of it from being down I'm guessing.

The clutch cable arcs down across the VIN plate,

maybe its protective outer sheath abraded the

surface?

The VIN plate markings appear to be etched into

a finish applied to the plate - if the plate is aluminum,

then this is an anodized finish. A Mfr Date in the

form of MM/YR is embossed from underneath in the

upper right corner (lower left as oriented on headstock).

The initial letters of the VIN are etched in the metal

colour and the balance is stamped into the exterior

surface.

The durabillity of the VIN etchings surprised me.

The frame of one bike I own had been 'painted' and

the plate was covered. Some effort removed the

paint and revealed the original undamaged VIN

markings.

The bike's VIN is also stamped directly into the head

stock to the left of the VIN plate. Post this up and

someone is likely to be able to decode it for you.

So I did some more searching and found theys.
