I hope it works out for me. The E-Ton gets a new home & the vintage Honda SL100 comes home with me. My daughter is pretty hyper about the trade. I feel the Honda will bring more money or at least as much as the quad.

I have lost my mind or eye site. The bike is in need it's been awhile since I saw it last. It's not even a SL100 But I traded anyway it's a 1983 XR80 It needs a new seat cover, grips, front brake lever & a good cleaning. They said the last time it was running was December last year so I thought "O" crap & had almost a full tank of gas left in it. Well I got home took it off the trailer second kick it came to life & with my 6 foot 230 something lbs. I test rode it after a brake check and air in the tires. 1st & 2nd pulled the front wheel up and 3rd thru 5th pulls strong. It's not as nice as the quad but I'll get it looking good little at a time.

Swampcat the reason for the 2 wheeler was my daughter has outgrown the E-Ton 90. With no extra money to spend. I traded for the bike. NADA on the quad was 625.00 the Honda with a little work could sell for more money. My plan is to teach my daughter to ride a bike and if she wants to ride my quad the bike is still big enough for me to ride for now. I plan on tearing it down repaint the frame and gas tank, handle bars, add a new seat cover & make sure it's running good & try and sell it for more than the quad would bring. Then put that towards another quad 250 to 400cc for Jennifer.

Update now the bike wont start got spark & fuel. I did a VIN search on the bike the friend I got it from knows little to nothing about the bike. The tag on the frame is not in good condition right where it tells the XR--0. XR 0 is all you can see so by the vin it's a XR100 not XR80. Today while I look like a man training for a butt kicking contest and using the kick starter on the bike my daughter ask to ride my quad. I was ready to throw the bike down on the ground and go for a stress release ride myself but like an idiot I kept kicking it never did start didn't even come close.

The first thing I would do is change out the plug and drain and refil the gas. Then check for spark and gas to the carb.

Thanks guys I already cleaned out the tank & carb. I bought a new plug and I will put it in saturday morning if it starts then I will be taking a trip to our local dealer for new grips & brake lever. Then change the oil & air filter. What was left of the air filter fell apart I'm sure some of it had to get into the carb. I plan on getting a carb rebuild kit I think it would be a good investment.

I bought a new plug & the bike is running but still running rich I can get a new carb for less than a rebuild kit off ebay so if I can't get the carb working right i'll just replace it. Here's a few pics I put the rear fender on after the photo shoot. It was learning day!! Thanks for not disowning as a quad crazy member for posting about a bike.LOL! No kidding I checked on finding a bike fourm to see if I could get a little help & info. on the bike & for some reason people don't respond back I got 1 welcome. I think the QC is the most friendly fourm.

Handyhiker I got your message thru email but not on the qc fourm for some reason but yes I took the carb completely apart. If I'm right the pilot screw should have a spring on it and if so it is long gone and the adjustment was fully closed I opend it 1 3/4 turns but I'm sure it wont stay without a spring. I was not thinking when I started working on the carb it's 29yrs. old. Today it had sometimes where it idle high then almost die as if it was running out of gas. By the way the plug looked like it had black soot on it. I have looked on ebay for a carb They have new carbs cheap but I'm unsure of the quality.

      I recently purchased an 07 Honda sportrax and when I was checking the spark plug I saw the boot was ripped nearly in half. When I removed the plug it was blackened and covered in oil. How can I thoroughly clean the plug hole and remove any debris that is in there? Is there a small tube like vacuum or something of the sort made for stuff like this? The machine my dentist has would be perfect, maybe they do rentals! 😁

      I have a 2000 Polaris Xplorer with the 250 two stroke motor
      It does not want to start with the electric start, the motor cranks fast, the battery is good, and there is good spark when cranking. The engine starts perfect when using the pull cord, it even starts if I pull the cord slowly and starts with one pull. The engine idles smoothly once started. My wife says she needs the electric start to work.

      I have been working on my quad for a while trying to get it running right. It seems as if I run into a new issue as soon as I resolve the old one. Anyway, the other day I went to fire up my quad and the battery was completely dead. I knew it was on it's last leg, so I went ahead and swapped it out think it was the issue. After sitting for a couple of days without running the machine at all, the new battery was drained as well, not completely dead like the old one but weak enough not to turn the engine over. When I removed the new battery to put it on the charger I noticed a clicking sound when I was removing the negative connection. After fooling around with it for a bit I tracked down where the sound is coming from (see pic) it was also warm to the touch. I have no idea what this thing or or what purpose it serves but should it be clicking as soon as I connect the battery? Could this be the cause of my battery being drained? Thanks for the help, I'm not the most experienced when it comes to tracking down electrical issues.

      I am working on a Honda sportrax I just got my daughter for get birthday and the reverse and neutral light are not working. When I traced the wire down I saw that it wasn't plugged in but I don't see where it is supposed to connect. Does any one have a general idea of where I should look?
