New project - LT80

Recommended Posts

Picked up an LT80 (unknown year) for $200 recently for my girls. Not running at the moment, but does turn over. I’m thinking the carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced, as it appears to be leaking 2 stroke oil. Anyway, I’m excited to have something to wrench on in my (limited) spare time :)

That's a cool little bike. It should be oil injected, a small tank under the seat?

The carburetor can easily be cleaned out and compression should be about 90psi .

Its a small carb so be gentle.

Thanks Frank! I did see the oil tank under the seat. Not sure where the oil is injected though (I assumed the carb). Doesn’t appear to be leaking from the tank. Sounds like I need to break it down and investigate further

Yes definitely needs to be taken apart. Its not a difficult task.   The oil line goes right into the side of the carburetor. If your not familiar with the carburetor rebuild there is topic on it here.

Update: started stripping her down today. Hoping to have it down to the frame over the next day or two. Looks like I’ll need to replace the wiring harness - it’s cut and melted in numerous places. The exhaust bolts are going to be a problem a well... pretty rusted and slightly rounded. Other than that, no surprises 👍

FINALLY got her stripped down to the frame.... really should have checked with wifey to see what outstanding tasks I had on the honey-do list before taking on this project 😊That and crappy weather set me back a bit.

Ordered a new set of handlebars and bumper guard. Once those come in, everything is getting powdercoated. I’m thinking pink with sparkly purple accents 🤣 love my girls

      Hi everyone! I'm from New Zealand, and doing up a Suzuki Lt50 for the kids. This is the first bike I've ever worked on, and it's currently not running. Hoping that both Google and this forum will get me through! Haha

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris
