Trying to identify the model year of this old Kawasaki G4TR enduro. The VIN and title match and say it”s a ‘71. BUT, everything about the frame says it definitely is NOT a’71. Mainly how the tank mounts. My frame has the large round rubber tank supports at the front of the tank and a J-hook at the back for a rubber strap. 1971 tanks bolted on in the front and back. I need to get a tank that fits this frame as the one that came with it is from a 1975 90cc model (M1B). Can any vintage Kawasaki enduro gurus out there help?
I was riding my crf a couple of months ago and the chain kept falling off. When the chain fell off after about the 10th time, it wouldnt start after. When I got back I took off the left side engine cover and the case saver was cracked off. I replaced the spark plug and it still isnt getting spark.
Made a little video of me riding some new trails we discovered, I had no clue where I was going. But I found out a way to ride a pretty fun loop to practice for woods races on. Check the video out, feedback is appreciated
Hi all, I'm a total noob to fixing vintage bikes and could use a hand if anyone has any knowledge they could share about timing for my 1975 XL100. I recently purchased it from a guy and the bike ran. After riding it around for about an hour the bike would not idle. I checked out the plug, replaced it and it would run again for about an hour. I thought maybe I got a bad plug and did this a third time before I finally accepted that there was a problem. I have gone though quite a bit of this bike at this point. I have replaced the rectifier, the coil, and the condenser (The points look good). I have found a few electrical problems mostly in the way of corroded connections and have replaced them to ensure that I am getting proper spark and that the charging system is functional. I replaced the battery. I replaced the carburetor, because I couldn't get the stock carburetor to idle properly not matter how I adjusted it. Finally after all of this I could get the bike to idle properly, but I couldn't get the bike to allow for the throttle to be opened beyond 1/4. I assumed this was likely a lean mixture. I enriched the mixture with the jet needle, no help. I tried spaying starter fluid into the air intake to prove or disprove that I had a lean condition. Starter fluid did not resolve the problem. I read somewhere that sometimes the centrifugal advancer will get stuck and cause this sort of problem, so I took off the points plate and took a look at it. The advancer seems to be freely moving, though I admit I wouldn't know if it is free enough to work. I then put the points plate back on. I have looked at the timing and feel reasonably confident that the timing was right. I later read that sometime old engines need to have their timing advanced beyond factory specs. I advanced mine by a degree-ish. Now I can get to 100% throttle for anything below about 5000RPM without issue. Anything above 5000 RPM and it sputters, doesn't matter the throttle opening. Anyone have any idea what I am up against? Should I advance the timing further? Is my centrifugal advancer broken? Can I test it? I'm at a loss at this point and could really use some help. I really appreciate any advice!
