    1990 Kx 80- Need some answers!

    I tried a little bit of research but couldn’t really get a straight answer- everything said something different. Figured I could get some more consistent info here.

    1990 Kx 80- Need some answers!

    Hey guys, recently my son has been looking for an 80cc two stroke- he found a used one at an amazing price. The only problem is, it is a little older than he would like- 1990. My questions are, do you guys think a 1990 kx is too old? My other question is assuming it isn’t, I would like to know if it is possible to get more modern plastics for the 1990 kx 80 for cheap? I really wouldn’t be concerned about the quality of the plastics. I was also wondering if 1990 was a good year for the kx 80? Hopefully you guys can help me out here! Thanks in advance!

    Cr 80 Ignition Coil-Help Needed!

    I asked him if he would do that if I bumped up the price, he said he would! I am going to try to help him find the right coil too, and seeing as how there are lots of different specs- could you guys help me find a link on amazon or something for a car 80 ignition coil?

    Cr 80 Ignition Coil-Help Needed!

    Okay- I was going to try to ask him a few more questions but he hasn’t been responding. Hopefully he does soon! Also- compared to my 125 four stroke, how much compression should it have? I don’t have a gauge but I know two strokes have less, just not sure what would be normal. Feel wise though, how much compression should I feel compared to my 125?

    That’s probably smart. I’ll ask him

    Also- if it helps, here are pictures. Maybe you can figure out the year with these pictures.

    The other thing- the guy just told me the coil dry rotted. I am hoping that doesn’t sound as bad as me kind of saying he just ripped it.

    Do you by any chance know the specs on a cr 80 coil? I can compare it to coils I have.

    Cr 80 Ignition Coil-Help Needed!

    Hey everybody, I have recently been helping my son find a 80-85 two stroke for sale, and today I found a good looking cr80 for $600. The guy seems trustworthy and says he got it in a trade not long ago when it ran, but recently the ignition coil wire ripped from wear and tear. He said he had no use for it anyways and didn’t want to fix it so decided to just sell it. This brings me to my main question- I have a cheap 125cc SSR four stroke pit bike, and was wondering if I could grab the ignition coil from that when I go to meet him and put it on to test if the cr80 does actually work. Thanks in advance for your help and let me know also if there are things I should check on the car 80 when I go to meet him like compression!

    What 85cc 2t to buy

    I am not really experienced a whole lot with two strokes- am actually in about the same situation as you, just taller and been riding a while. From what I have read and been told, I am fairly certain any two stroke of a major brand should be a good bike- kx, yz, Suzuki, and Honda. FYI- if this is your first bike I would also look at four strokes-they may be a better choice for you.

    CRF-150, kx85, or yz85?

    Thanks for all the info! Wouldn’t have known most of that without a while of research.

    CRF-150, kx85, or yz85?

    That was my guess, but thank you for confirming it!

    CRF-150, kx85, or yz85?

    Actually- I spoke too soon, I have another question-If I am having lots of trouble finding a 100, would an 85 still be an upgrade in power compared to a 125?

    CRF-150, kx85, or yz85?

    Okay- so I guess I need to start looking for a kx100. Thanks for all the help!
