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.

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.

      Hello folks, my machine wound up with I think water in the tank etc. It runs but speeds up and slows back down randomly. When not running I don't see gas dripping  from the drain nipple on bottom of float bowl and drain screw is closed tight. With normal idle speed I see no leaking. When the idle speed increases quite a bit on it's own, gas appears to start slowly dripping from float bowl drain nipple? I'm wondering if the carb is flooding and the gas is actually coming from higher up and just appears, to be coming out of nipple but, is actually running down the sides of the nipple? I put a kit in the factory Mikuni carb last year after sitting for a while and I think the gas in the jug I used had drawn moisture. I plan to pull the carb tomorrow and clean everything out. I was just curious if anyone else thinks it's probably something in the carb and is, acutally a flooding problem? Thanks Folks! 🙂

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      Hope everyone is having a great weekend,
      While riding my quad just quit, I mean dead. No life on the dash, no crank and obesity no start. 
      Had a quick look under the plastic, batt reading 12.7v power at the key switch.
      Changed the power pack, still no luck.
      Anyone else have similar problems?
      I don't see a fuse box/panel, is there fusible links in the system? If so where di I start looking?

      Hello All
      I'm kinda new to ATVs. I just bought a 1987 Suzuki quad runner 230 Dual Range. I'm having a problem finding info on it. It's very clean, only 2.800 miles. The front wheels are only 30 in.center to center. I was thinking about adding wheel spacers to give it more stability. I realize the added stress on ball joints and bearings. I'm wondering if there are any other concerns? Any input is greatly appreciated!

      It's been a long time since I have used a forum, I was the admin of one for quite a few years, had thousands of daily active members, with lots of crazy posts and spammers, so I salute the admins. Anyway, just waving my greasy hands, Hopefully I can help others out.
