    Pit bike or big bike?

    buddies ride 250 four strokes
  2. Hey guys- I am at a point where i can move up to big bike if i want to. I am 15, 5"7', and growing. I have an xr100 now that has been fun for the past few months. my question is- should i get a big bike or buy like a klx110 and mod it out? Those little bikes are just so much fun, but on the other hand a big bike would allow me to ride more than just little trails and such. Also, all my buddies have big bikes so if i got a pit bike and modded it out i would still not be able to keep up with them. any input welcome. Thanks!

    xr100 throttle stuck

    Ha! I misspoke. It did fall on the right side and that is why the throttle is jammed from the impact

    xr100 throttle stuck

    Hey! so the throttle on my xr100 is sticking. like won't return. i was replacing back wheel bearings and had the bike up on a stand with the wheel off. i was trying to get the master link off the chain in accidentally hit the swingarm, pushing the bike off the stand and it fell on its left side on the garage floor. There was no visible damage suprisingly and nothing was damaged except the throttle. when the bars hit the ground it jammed the throttle tube into the entire mechanism. i know the issue is not with the carb because it will not spring back even in the free play. i took it apart and lubed the assembly and that helped a bit for only for a tiny bit. i was thinking just place the whole thing but thats like $30. any suggestions on where to get a new throttle tube for real cheap? or some other fix? Thanks!

    Help!!! Cam chain tensioner stripped

    Thanks for the responses! i stripped whatever part number 6 screws into. what i am trying to figure out is what part number 6 screws in to so i can fully understand the issue
  7. Over tightened cam chain tensioner and it stripped! Honda xr100. Should I just super glue bolt to case to make it stay in place? Thanks! Edit: the bolt itself is not stripped. Wherever it screws into inside the top end is stripped. from what I understand from the diagram in my clymer manual, the sole purpose of this bolt is to hold the arm in place. If it can still do that simply by being in its place inside the arm and I can secure it from popping out of the engine, the theoretically that would work, correct?

    Graduating from xr100

I have a job so the more expensive it gets just means the longer i have to wait until riding Only 600? wow. shows what i know

    Graduating from xr100

    a top and bottom end kit is about $400 then factor in another $200 for odds and ends so then i have a good running bike for $1400. is that too optimistic?

    Graduating from xr100

    https://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/d/yzstroke-obo/6763886493.html How does that one look? i am fairly handy and a top end rebuild looks like a piece of cake and also a bottom end if need be. that price is crazy
  13. i tried to lay it over and shake it out but the petcock started leaking
