My xr100 Status Update Page

Recommended Posts

I figured i would make this thread so people can comment on my bike or something, lol

Got my wheel back from my friend, man hes a awesome guy but I always forget to ask him things like... what his name is... My bike is all back together now, looking spiffy but one thing thats an eyesore is the tank graphics. they are all tore up, is there anywhere that I can get some for cheap, I mean, they are just some strong stickers, they are not worth $56.99..

Run it the way it is, save your cash for a bigger bike (that's one's not gonna last much longer the way you were revving it Monday:p)....decals don't make it any faster.

I do want a two stroke 125 or something like that. maybe a xr200 would be in line, i donno what i really want, i dont want to go heavier so ill probably go with the two stoke. though I jsut looked up the xr100 and the cr125... the cr125(197lbs) is 32 pounds heavier than the xr..

I guess ill have to try and sell it and THEN get something else..because a trade obviously is proving to be quite hard.

Newer CRF100's have a hard time getting $950, $500-$650 is the range for a XR100 in my area...

I'm trying to trade with someone right now but he wants to have a bike at all times apparently.

We picked that bugger up for **$650**, it is a 86, very good guess. I have no idea how the colors came to be, we bought it the way it sits now. It also doesn't start and I don't want to f with it.. And now that i have my own two smoke... I really don't care. :confused:

but after two days of looking and texting and calling and blah blah blah I finally got a trade for my 2000 xr100r for a 1994 yz125. This thing is beast :thumbsup: its quite tall though, and in pretty rough shape, it needs some TLC... I don't think they have heard of lubing a chain.. and another thing, couldn't they have washed the damn thing before deciding to sell it, i mean mine was absolutely pristine when I traded it.

The main thing I'm worried about is that I cannot find a VIN number, I looked on the steering stem but I can't find it, apparently the frame was painted before the kid owned it, so I dunno...

as soon as I got home I planned, welded, and painted a stand for this damn thing, I know a majority of them are used for racing... but ***... a funny thing is my last weld was my best weld because I finally got the welder set up correctly...

And after that was all done... I fired up the bike and gave it a few revs, I then was breathing welding smoke, paint fumes, and now two stroke exhaust... wow im not going to last long like this.

Here is a pic in the truck.

something like this would be good. I could probably get 900 out of my xr, what do you think?

Depends...what kind of riding do you want to do? MX, wide open trails, or single track like you did with me and Eric?

CR125 would kill you in the stuff we took you on....you'd hit even more trees with the power delivery they have.:thumbsup:

only cc Andrews really, I don't really like single track.... The frame is yellow, and at last i found the VIN under all the yellow paint. had to sand it with two different sand papers, brake cleaner, and my finger nail.

I DID get a yz125. equal trade.

Other than the "original....unique" color scheme, it looks like a clean bike.

I got some el-cheapo wraparound yellow Acerbis handguards w/hardware if you're interested. They don't have metal inserts, but they're better than nothing.

I am quite interested in those, they sound great, i was actually starting to miss my stock honda handguards.

I don't think ill be out riding for a while, things are not in order i'll say. But if you would ship them? or drop by my house, lol. My bank acct is pretty well wiped out and i have no cash... now, how did that happen.....

Next time you wander up my way to go riding, shoot me a PM first. I'll even help install them.:thumbsup:

Sheesh, kids these days....you give them something for free, and then they want you to ship it too.....:confused:

On a side note, I think I may have found a bike for my duaghter....KTM 105XC

      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...
