    i picked this bike up for 120$. thought it was too good to be true. after a week of having it i noticed a bunch of things that had been done to this bike. apparently evil knievel tried to jump the grand canyon on this and some one got it and got it going again. kickstart was welded on no lights, no speedometer. handle bars bent. front brake was taken off. shift lever welded on. straight piped, and the frame was poorly welded from front to back and part of it broke from around the yard riding. it seemed fast, heavy, about too tall. im 6'4" and i tip toe to touch the ground.

    unknown motor problem

    sorry it was late last night when i made this post. let me clarify my main issue. i know that the bike not starting by kicking it over is one thing, but my question is what would make the transmission lock up the wheel like that? when it is in gear with the clutch in its hard to roll. in neutral it rolls easy, i don't know if that is a common thing with these bikes but iv never had another one act that way. even grabbing the wheel and trying to turn it while it is in gear doesn't work. in my head if i can kick start it in gear and it move the bike i should be able to push start it. tried taking the spark plug out and trying it. some one has been inside the crank case before,so is there anything that could cause this in there. i have never messed with the trans on a bike before.

    unknown motor problem

    I've recently been struggling trying to get my 1982 honda xr200r running again. I have tore most of the motor down and put it back in time. Everything seemed perfect until it wouldn't start. Of course you haven't lived till you try to kickstart one, so this is where i noticed a big problem... instead of kicking this bike over and over I decided to push start it. get a run and go on my concrete drive way and hop on and dump the clutch... nothing.. no, literally nothing. time and time again even had a friend pull me with a 4 wheeler once. the wheel locks up and will not turn the motor over. you can put the bike in gear and kick it over and the bike will move. but no matter if you take the spark plug out, and put it in a high gear(went through all of them) it will not turn the motor over. i have worked on alot of motors in my life and this has me going... huh? i hope i gave a good enough run down of what is going on for someone to help me.
