cr 80

My nephew's brought his 98 cr 80 over to the house today it quit running on him and we're trying to figure it out it has spark and fuel.but wont fire? anyone have any ideas? thanks. Chris.

You said it has a spark? how did you test it? Also when was the last time you cleaned your air filter?

new filter, o meter,spark at the plug. :thumbsup:

Probably has something to do with the carb, take it off and clean it out. It might be clogged, or the float might be sticking.

We checked the spark it was good,put in a new air filter,pulled the carb apart,cleaned it, emptied the OLD OLD gas out and put fresh this is for you kx-rider 40-1 :bonk: and it fired right up :confused: . my brother bought this bike used for his kids,and it was a little rough to say the least, his boys ran it for an hour a it died on them, well he never changed the OLD VARNISHED GAS :thumbsup: so now they are all happy :thumbsup: thank every one who replied. Chris

Glad to see everything worked out. :thumbsup:

ya man i have a brand new cr 85 2005 and hasnt been ran a full season yet and it wont fire either i think it might have somethin to do with the timing or somethin cause i no that it has a good spark and its good good cause cause i just got new stuff and just mixed it yester day so i dont know and i dont want to take it in cause i am broke so some help us ...

Put a new spark plug in it, I bet you it will start right up.

ya i have a brand new spark plug in and it aint workin like i have got a new plug change my air flter and got new gace took apart my whole carb and my bowls arrnt stickin and im out of things to try and do

i need gelp :thumbsup::confused::thumbsup:

Easy stuff first then the harder stuff. Spark plug, new gas, check spark, clean filter. IF none of that does the trick clean the carb out. You can get a look at the piston by taking the pipe off and looking in the exhaust port. These two strokes have reeds and they can go bad, the reed cage assembly comes off easily for inspection but you may need a new gasket (Good idea). I like 3bond 1211 to help seal gaskets, just don't use RTV sealant. If you have a compresion gauge, see what PSI your getting out of the top end. Blown crank seals will cause you problems as well,pop the flywheel cover,,,, if you have an oil bath in there you have a blown crank seal.

      So Been rebuilding my bike and the rubber mallet just "wouldn't cut it"!!!!
      I had to pry managed to sand down it all looked flat but this seems a bit gappy.

      This is only on the outer edge but I can help worry this is going to leak or get shit into the engine.
      Any help or advice would be awesome thanks

      Hey guys, so cant find much online about cr 250r enduro conversions (nothing recent) so im wondering if it is an option or not. I currently have a crf 250x 2009 and a XR 650r. If i want a 2 stroke enduro but want to stick with the honda line up, is a 2007 or 2005 honda cr 250r a good option. and if so what would need to be done to it to get it up to spec for trail and enduro riding. Thanks very much

      If you own a 2 stroke dirtbike,please reply once. Im just wondering how many people on this site have them.

      Note: This specifically applies to the '92 - '01 CR250 engine, but it should be adaptable to any 2-stroke. The basic idea is to pull the carb and exhaust, plug one and pressurize the engine through the other to look for leaks.
      It's very important to pressure test a 2-stroke after it's assembled. The reason is that a 2-stroke gets it's lube through the pre-mix. An air leak means your engine can run lean. Lean means too little fuel. Too little fuel means too little lube. Too little lube means death to your engine. So here we go.
      First, you need to pull the seat, tank, shock, carb and pipe. Everything you need (other than a tire pump) is shown below.

      The assembly below is basically a 1-3/4" PVC plug (same OD as the intake pipe ID) that is transitioned down to a 0-15 psi gauge, a shut-off valve and a Schrader valve (to connect a tire pump). The 1-3/4" PVC plug is a tight fit in the intake pipe, but it'll fit with enough persuasion. I used yellow heavy duty pipe tape (made for gas systems) to put everything together. I don't have all the technical names for everything, but if you take the pictures to a hardware store, they should be able to help you piece it together.

      The item below is an adjustable rubber freeze plug. They are available at automotive parts stores in various sizes, but the closest one I could make work was a 1-3/4" version. You tighten the nut which squeezes two metal plates together which squeezes and expands the rubber piece between the plates. You have to tighten it a lot, but it makes a good seal in the exhaust port.

      Before you install everything, make sure that the piston is at BDC (so that all the ports are open), the spark plug is installed and all other components are properly tightened. Below, you can see the gauge/valve assembly installed in the intake pipe. Make sure to tighten your intake pipe hose clamp tightly as the pressure will tend to push the assembly out.

      Below, you can see the freeze plug installed in the exhaust port.

      Once you have everything installed as shown, use a tire pump to pressurize the engine to 6 - 8 psi, then close the valve and watch the gauge for any pressure drop over a 5 - 10 minute period. A well sealed engine will hold pressure with no observable pressure drop for 10 minutes easily.
      One common "leak" in a healthy '92 - '01 CR250 engine (and probably other types) is through the powervalve linkage. It probably doesn't affect performance, but it'll sure throw your leak measurements off. To avoid leaks, make sure the powervalve linkage is correctly lubed (per the Service Manual) with grease and Moly 60 Paste during assembly.
      If your engine holds pressure with no observable drop for 10 minutes, you're good to go. If the pressure drops 2 - 3 psi or more over 10 minutes, spray soapy water all around the pressure test parts first to check for leaks there. If you find none on the test setup, start spraying the soapy water around the base gasket, head gasket, center gasket etc. Any pressure drop of less than 2 psi over 10 minutes is your call, but I'd definitely fix it.
      I've had really good results by using Permatex Copper Gasket Sealant on the base gasket, PV cover gasket and reed cage gasket. I don't use anything on the head gasket.

      What value would you say a 1986 cr250 with a freshly plated cylinder and new top end, newer tires, newer chain & sprockets, in overall very good condition?
      I picked up the bike (cheap) a month or so ago in need of cylinder replating & top end. Apparently the headgasket blew internally scouring the cylinder. The crank feels good and the bike is very clean/good condition.
      I havent put the bike together yet (too busy to ship cylinder and order parts), but figure I would have a total of $600 (including bike cost) to get it into good running cond.
      A friend wants to buy it as-is for his 15 yr old 200# kid. What value wouldyou put on it in As-is condition vs with a fresh engine?
