XR100 Cylinder head question

Recommended Posts

I am looking to purchase a 2nd head for my 2002 XR100 to have ported and larger valves installed.

Does it matter what year head I should use. For example, is there a difference between CDI and points heads. I have no experience with the earlier models.

I have found an early head (85 vintage) will that work?

The early models don't have valve guide seals on the intake. Or is it the exhaust? I can never remember. But unless you go ebay, it might just be better to go with a Kitaco superhead setup. Their valves are huge!!!!

Thanks guys, I had a feeling you would be the ones to answer.

Now, Is there a difference in the Kitaco head and the Takegawa head, or do they use the same raw casting?
