'01 XR100R and '98 XR400R

Recommended Posts

As per my previous topic "XR400R and XR100R - What maintenance is needed after sitting for years?", we went to get the bikes today.

XR100R is a 2001

XR400R is a 1998

The 100 is in pretty good shape and we should have it running in no time, the 400 may need a little more TLC, but I think I should be able to clean her up nicely as well.

Attched, some better/detailed pics of the bikes.20170422_170626.thumb.jpg.905b51f2506321a5e64a24f6f7b2df35.jpg20170422_170819.thumb.jpg.33d3e6a520f16cf7042ed32358d6ad65.jpg20170422_170844.thumb.jpg.92b73ee1c5f9a960654610a4d6d46f2e.jpg20170422_171344.thumb.jpg.93d980401002bd36b6b6556102f76b00.jpg20170422_172012.thumb.jpg.1077efcc31786344cc17acc9b95d0828.jpg20170422_172054.thumb.jpg.81587c9c8cd9198d928ff460da72e81c.jpg20170422_173421.thumb.jpg.ad61e3a91e7367fd89cbb69188f8dcf3.jpg20170422_173255.thumb.jpg.cc41bcf8edb26695463a823cb4d4dd52.jpg20170422_173556.thumb.jpg.bdcc4063f321359c495c545321cf6c8c.jpg20170422_173828.thumb.jpg.637bc0b92d6273b39881a0f99988d5d2.jpg

Looks like the 400 has an evidence of an oil leak on the right side somewhere. Perhaps the cylinder base.

Difficult/costly to address? Or could this just be from sitting?

Both bikes will obviously get washed and detailed properly once at home and before wrenching on them.

No, it's not from sitting. The bike has been ridden enough with oil leaking to sufficiently cover that much of the outer case and get that kind of dirty build up.

You're looking at the cost of a gasket. I'm sure you can imagine what has to come apart if it's the cylinder base that's leaking. If you do the work, labor is free.

Before you go washing them, inspect and take note of things like this, what looks to be a long term leak. You can fix it now or later. I guess you'd have to get it running in order to see just how bad it is.
