    Bent Forks - Unbelivable Results

    Florida.... you're exactly right. This is an old Honda 100. Forks are good to go now. And we don't have the Acme 3500 so we can't straighten the frame.
  3. Acquired this XL100 needing some TLC First priority was the forks We use the ACME 2500 Fork Straightener - Works pretty good to say the least Pics before and after

    tonight is NOT my night

    You can buy a replacement Chinese carb off eBay for $25 We've put carbs for XR100s ($19 from China) on 150s and they run great

    Preparing to ride Pismo/salt water

    We grew up about a 3 minute walk form the ocean. We rode our bicycles as well as dirt bikes on the beach and in salt water all time. Never had a problem but we did rinse the bike of when we got home usually. One weekend won't do any harm at all.

    No compression after crash

    No octane booster for this guy, he's got problems of his own.

    Confused on top end rebuild

    We've had 125s that ran over 10 years without a rebuild. That's a lot longer than 20 hours but do what you like.

    No compression after crash

    Can chain can "jump" a tooth but not because of the bike crashing. Yea I did chime in with the broken ring but come on man it was a joke. I guess the lesson here is if we keep girls off dirt bikes there will be less problems for the boyfriend's to figure out???

    No compression after crash

    This thread is insane. Rings don't crack because of age or a crash. Cam chains don't jump from a crash. The adjusters will adjust the cam chain so it's quiet. A clutch doesn't stop working because a girl crashes. When this engine is taken apart it will never run again. But keep us posted.

    Looking for the Condenser on a 1980 XR80

    Condensers rarely go bad. From the picture your points look okay also. Those engines and ignition systems are pretty Bulletproof. Just put some fresh gas in it and start it up.

    Well spins true but not centered

    That won't fix your problem. Spokes & Rims are where they are... Can't "adjust" right to left at all. You have the spacers in correctly?

    Siezed Kicker??

    Sorry to hear about the kicker gear damage but why 50 kicks to get it started?
