1990 xr 100 help

Recommended Posts

I have a 1990 xr100 .. I have two questions. First one like an idiot me and my friend spraypainted my bike... I've found all the plastic for this bike in ebay... but its for a 2003. Will 2003 xr100 plastic fenders, side plates, and number plate fit on a xr100 1990? Second question when im riding in 5th gear and I go full throttle it will skip and makes a loud poping sounds, so I can only go half throttle. Does anybody know why that happens?

Any reply will be very helpfull.

The newer plastic wouldn't fit without some major frame mods. Sounds like you are running lean or your points are floating... What position is the clip on the carb needle? What size main jet do you have? The clip should be in the middle slot, and you should have around a 98 main jet, if it is a stock engine. This should get a start to solving your problem. If it IS ignition,you need to upgrade to CDI setup :banana:.

Skipping sound won't pull?

Have you checked your sprockets and chain?

      A while back I picked up a '95 XR250R swingarm that I plan on installing on my '90 XR200R in the near future, to save a little weight and have rear disk brakes. 
      I missed out on a totally complete rear brake system for $75 a while back which sucks. I look on Ebay every now and then hoping to find a great deal on a complete or near complete setup but no luck lately.
      Is anyone aware if Honda used the same brake system that was used on the '90-'95 XR250R, on any other bikes? 
      If so, then I can expand my search. If not, then I'll just keep looking at 250 parts til I find the right setup for the right price.

      Has anybody purchased/used one of these Arrowhead IHA6017 cdi boxes??  I tried 2 different ones of these on a 1987 and 1994 XR200R, and the bikes won't even start.  Bikes just pop and backfire, had to put the old cdi's back on.  I noticed when I ordered the boxes they stated "advance ignition curves" in the specs.  The box is also much bigger than the stocker and won't fit in the rubber mount.  I didn't mess with moving around the timing to try and get these to work....I just sent them back.

      Recently picked up a 1987 xr200r in pretty good condition, all stock.  The carb was all gummed up and running real rich, and the previous owner removed the baffle and end cap from the exhaust, but left the air box top chute in place.  I cleaned up the carb and verified all stock jetting, needle position, air screw, etc.  Where we live the quieter the better for off-roading so I ordered a new baffle and end cap, but did ride the bike for a week before the parts arrived.  With the muffler parts out I had a brown plug and plenty of power throughout the entire throttle range.  Got the muffler parts, installed them and now the bike falls flat while climbing hills and gradually rolling on the throttle, I get a burble at low speed sometimes and I have a black sooty plug.  I'm kind of at a loss on this one.  I realize that the parts restricted the exhaust....but it's basically back to stock and I've had these bikes stock before and they ran fine.  Seeing as I have all stock jets and am getting a sooty plug, I'm wondering if electrics are weak?  I also tried adjusting the air screw in/out and moving the needle clip to position 2, either of the two made my problem worse.
      Any ideas?

      So the other day I notice that the rear shock spring on our 1994 xr200r had cracked and separated about 2 coils from the top.  No big I thought....just go on Ebay and pick something.  Well, after a few days of looking I can't find ANYTHING used or aftermarket!  The stock Honda spring #52401-KT0-691 is "no longer available".  Can anybody lead me in the right direction to get a replacement spring for this bike??
      Thanks in advance.

      I have a 1999 xr200r. I used to ride it like a champ than i stored it for a year getting it out once in a while to run. Than i took it out a couple days ago started it and it ran and died instantly. I cleaned out the carb put everything back together and still sane thing. You have to feather the throttle to keep it running. It also made a loud pop and it jerks you when you ride it. I changed the spark plug, cleaned the carb, and put new gas in the tank. Any ideas? Wanted to ride it this weekend...
