Quick question: '79 XL75 engine in newer frame?


Recommended Posts

Actually-- I'd rather have the newer motor in the old XL! That's a '00 XR80. Where's the motor that belongs in the XR? I'd rather get a motor off Ebay than monkeying around trying to get the XL motor to work in the XR. --L*64

The xl 75 motor will fit your xr 80 chassis However ,keep in mind that the xl engine has a fourspeed gearbox instead of a fivespeed gearbox that the xr has,plus the xl carb and intake tracks are very small.Also the camshaft is very small in the xl engine. It's all geared for the street or trail.It doesn't make very much torque.
