2001 XR100R

Recommended Posts

Picked up a 2001 XR100R for my 11 year old son. Bike has been sitting for almost 10 years, so today we started to get her ready:

- washed her up real good.

- changed the oil.

- new spark plug. 

- new air filter.

- cleaned the carburetor. 

- cleaned out the gas tank and removed old gasoline.

- replaced a tube as front tire did not hold any air.

She started right up on the 3rd kick, after sitting for almost 10 years.

Little man is pretty happy. :)

1972 my Dad bought me a 1971 XL100, I rode that bike to death.
Around 1988 I bought an XR100 for my wife's son.
Around 2005 I bought an XR100 for my wife's grandson.
Since then I've had at least 15 different XR100s (and some XR80s) for the grandkids.
Also lots of fun for adults.
We've bought and parted out over 75 XR100s.
I buy every XR100 & 80 I see.
99% of the time its easy to start a bike that's been sitting forever.
There's some really clean XRs out there for very little money.
I can't begin to describe the fun we've had with small Honda motorcycles.

The perfect find.............a nice clean XR100R!  I picked up one just like it about 10 years ago' but yours is even nicer.

When you have a chance it would be a good idea to check the valve and cam chain adjustment, and pull the pro link linkage apart and grease the bearings.  The linkage bearings are most often neglected, and when they start squeaking damage has been done......$$$.  I went a bit overboard on mine I guess as I pulled the forks apart and put in drains so I could change fork oil.  Doing the maintenance is the key to a long trouble free life of any machine.......:thumbsup:
