  1. Well i did it ,I bought a 1998 AT what a lovely bike smooth ,not scary ,heavy but manouverable ,quite well designed for mass centalisation .Should go on a diet battery pipe etc .Changed a few things already but generally a sweet ride . Early days yet but typical honda build quality robust engine not as entertaining as some other faster bikes but does what its sposed to !Comfy and easy to ride 20 years old and only some paint rub around the footpegs cant be bad ..
  2. Hi all i am thinking of buying an AT xrv 750 ..never had one befor or ridden one but i like the idea of a big twin with enough supension for the bad roads here ..Any ideas ? I have found a 2001 38,000 km looks clean ,i am interested in any and all mods suspension wise ,i dont think other than weight savings there is much to be done ..Engine is bullet proof so i am thinking air filters not sure if i want to mess with anything else but i am open to suggestions....
  3. check out the used listings a lot of clutch;s can be found in good condition on-line ,i also have an 04 good clutch unit so far i have no problems just plate changes..If you are riding a standard engine on trails go with a used item ,i can on occasion abuse my clutch i alo have a big bore kit etc it still does the job '' shop around
  4. I agree with spit 51 valves are an expensive fix. but still worth a look very reliable easy bike to ride ,also a few mods will make things interesting
  5. Here are a few of my favorite things i have made recently ,i have jut literally fitted a larger water pump impeller it came with a sandwhich plate to ensure fitting i will add a pic if anyone wants to see it ..i can make the end can cone an all the design i from an fmf i dont make the whole can jut the outer shell and the end cap all from carbon i include the mount too all again from carbon clutch cover too i am not a professional but i am happy with the finish i improve all the time thanks
  6. great job looks really nice ..i would just add some frame covers ..that frame looks too nice to scratch
  7. any one any idea's any other things i can check ?
  8. the number from the head stock is as previously stated JKAKX100CCA005379 , engine number is kx100CE002751 are there any other numbers i should be aware of ? The bike has usd forks disc' front and rear ,power valve ..The tarting ha become a little difficult o i would like to change the top end take look etc ,the air filter was bad when i bought it so some signs of neglect were apparrant ,till run ok when started but its the wifes bike so it has to be right ..
  9. attatch it to an earth and ee if the bike runs
  10. the frame says C.C for it 9th and 10th digit complete index is JKAKX 100 CC A005379.... i spose it possible the engine could have been swapped
  11. Bought a kx 100 very clean owned by the same guy for many years ..Anyhow want to spend on new parts piston etc ,so i checked the vin and engine number ..The frame has a CC for its 9th and 10th digits which i think is an 82? the engine has a kx100 ce 002751 which the way i am understanding this is a 98/2000 .Other than someone swapping engines and frames have i got this right ? many thanks in advance any light would help

  13. At first i adjusted the mixture screw with a cut down screw driver, then i bought an aftermarket adjuster, which is easier and i can do with my fingers. I still have to start from fully in to guage where i am but once i get it right i am only half a turn in or out to get to where i need to be ,.. ..There was a really cool thing cant remember the name but it made the whole job much easier.. i could not get one here and it was pricey but it was simpe to use i will try to remember it ..adjust your jetting to suit your needs rick ramsey c.c.c (sticky) is a good place to start. i use a crf 250 R needle and bigger jets ,i have a ported head fmf power bomb exhaust 280 big bore ,R cam ,vortex ignition etc ..my power has moved a little bit to the top end i have sacrificed a little bottom end but it keeps up with most things with me being the limiting factor .Great bikes does everything some things not as good as others but most things well enough ..Reliabilty is a strength not many other manufacturers can compete with it in that dept ..
  14. You hould check the needle valve the floats lift it and they have a rubber pointed bottom part that must seal correctly thi can be perished shiney .. The slide in will go in two ways so make sure its in the right way ,you can normally hear a little cliking from the slide so dont be too alarmed ..on one of my earlier threads i put info on what i used needle wise ,jets etc.But even now the biggest thing is mixture 10 degrees in either direction is all i have the carb seems really sensitive to temp and elevation so i am always looking for the best feel ..
