    Remember the Honda SL 100 ?

    My older brother bought a 72 SL100 new and a few month later while the rest of the family was in San Diego he rolled my dads 69 Datsun wagon so my dad rode the sl to work for almost 3 months then fell in love with riding and bought a Kawasaki 350 street bike.

    Help from AZ quad riders please.

    Not sure what part of town your in, but Westy's Motorsports 55th Ave/ Grand has the set ups for them. They also have horn set ups and mirrors. I had a brake light switch on mine so I got my mirror and horn from the bike department at Walmart. When I screw them up it's only 10 bucks to replace.
  3. Family flies into LAX on Sunday. I have sent on your good wishes and all the cool ideas of things to do out there. I will out in a couple of weeks to enjoy your city.
  4. Thanks for the site sactoxr. You guys are great. Peter will be starting the proton treatments July 23 or 30th. They will be starting off at the Ronald McDonald house. His first 2 weeks could be a couple hours per day then only an hour per day there after. As it has been said, many things will hinge on how he is feeling. I feel that I can not say thank you enough for all the help.
  5. Guys this info is awesome. We have started making some calls already. Another thing we could use info on is what type of things are there to do for kids 2-12 years old in the area. They will have lots of free time and like reconranger said they will not want to stay in the trailer all day. Again thanks for all your help.

    Failing 4th Gear..

    Please keep the thread alive as I have the same problem with 3rd gear. The description you gave was identical to what I have. Mine is an 87 XR600r. Good luck.
  7. We will check in with the hospital about hook ups, as that sounds very convenient. They are set to stay at the Ronald McDonald house in the begining that is near Loma Linda. It just seems that it might be easier on them with that large of a family to have a place of their own. Thank you all so much for the info, my wife and I will start calling.
  8. Thank you very much, I will start looking into these.

    hard start after riding Help!!!

    I put on a new Ricky Stator on my 87 600r and it starts much easier. I think it was around $130 plus a few bucks freight. It made a difference. It only comes in the high power and you need nothing extra to hook it up. The thing I learned from somebody here on TT was to lean the bike over on it's right side on something apx 1-1/2' tall to keep the oil on the other side of the case. Also make sure you get a new gasket before you start. I think I paid $12.00. Without running the high power lines I still have a very bright 55w headlight at idle. Now I just need a 3rd gear.

    87 XR600 How do I make this beast start!

    MY 87 XR600 HAD THE IDENTICAL PROBLEM. i PUT A NEW COIL ON AND IT STARTED TO WORK BETTER. COUPLE MONTHS AGO I PUT ON A NEW STATOR FROM RICKY STATOR AND I HAD TO PUSH IT THE FIRST TIME BUT THEN IT STARTED FINE AFTER THAT. THE OTHER DAY I WALKED OUT AND IT FIRED ON THE FIRST KICK. IT NEEDS A REALLY GOOD SPARK TO FIRE THAT BIG PIG OF A PISTON. IF YOU HAVE TO LOOK CLOSELY TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A SPARK THEN I WOULD LOOK TO THE STATOR. WHEN THEY ARE WEAK THEY WILL STILL WORK BUT NOT START EASY. THE DARN THING IS TO HEAVY TO PUSH WHEN EVER I WANTED TO GO OUT. NOW MY 3rd GEAR IS SLIPPING. NOT SURE WHAT I AM GOING TO DO YET.

    xr600 3rd gear

    My 3rd gear in my 87r is starting to slip also. i have been pondering the idea of fixing or not. I just got the electrical worrking good with a new high out put stator from Ricky Stator. How hard is it to change out third gear. My 87 rides better IMO than my friends newer xr400s. The seat is much more comfortable. I agree completely with RMHRC630 in that 3rd is the working gear. I did about 20 miles on my wifes 84 xr250 last sunday and while it was fun I am a biggg guy and need more power.
