I have an '85 and an '86, and pretty much every part will interchange. The '86 has an additional top motor mount, but I've used an '85 motor in an '86 frame with no issues. If you'll be a little more specific, I'll try to help you out. I have a spare carb if you need it.

is the 85 affected by the magnesium cases?

nah just a sticker ... im not sure what you mean by affected by magnesium cases im a idiot when it comes to knowledege of whats whats

well some of the early honda motocross bikes had magnesium cases and they didnt like the coolant at all.they liked to disolve and clog your radiators

ive got the seat upholstered and still waiting on a rear fender and a number plate off of ebay then time to get the motor back together and go from there... anyone know where i can get factory decals for the shrouds
