Honda xr200r engine troubles

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 honda xr200r that just got a fresh top end rebuild. I've cleaned the carb 5 times re-timed it 3 times including checking valve clearance and it does not run properly. I've even noticed it blowing out exhaust or air through side of air cleaner. Any idea on what's going on?

If this was our bike, we'd sell it and buy a newer bike.
Others here will disagree but I've seen (and bought) a LOT of motorcycles that were rebuilt never to run properly again.

People, including us, have chased problems forever never to find the solution.

Check the camshaft to crankshaft and ignition timing. Cam chain tension and ignition advancer for correct function. I have seen one barely run being a tooth off at the cam without causing internal damage.
