Hi Bart, I have a 1977 XR 75 and I'd like to mount on some 1980 CR 80 forks. What else do I need, tripple clamps from the CR and a front wheel and axel? Will the xr fender work? Thanks for any tips. Kevin

Well pulled this 1980 XL100 swinger out of box and noticed there's no way this will fit a XR frame!

Hey thanx Cam. The stock size is 12in as it sits so i think Ill need longer shocks. I got my XL100 swinger in last nite so I'm going to make sure it fits and measure the rear travel that I'll need to even it out with the front. I'm guessing I'll be looking

Ok I found a swinger on ebay from a 79 XL100 with pivot bolt for $59 including shipping. You sure that'll fit ok? I've been looking for a set o Boge shocks, no luck yet. What is the max rear spring height I can go. The CR80 forks fit great, but are super ... more »

I just pulled this out of a friends garage. It's been sitting for 6 yrs without a start. He said it ran fine before parking it. I tried kicking it but feels locked up, wondering if the piston is corroded to cylinder from sitting so long. Besides draining ... more »

Thanx Greg but I'm looking for a permanent fix. Found this, wonder if an 83 will work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/1983-Honda-CR250-exhaust-connector-mid-pipe-83-CR-250-/190685331843?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2c65bb4183&vxp=mtr

Yes, been looking for awhile now. Really hard part to find. You would think FMF would have something or extended a pipe off silencer to connect to Pipe. I'm at the point where I might try a exhaust shop and see if I can find some tubing. silly!

Anyone have any idea where I can find a mid pipe to connect my new silencer to my Fatty? OEM part not avail. 18328-KS7-000. Couldn't find on Ebay.

Mine is almost done. Still awaiting on a FMF silencer which should be in this week. I'm down to little stuff that needs replaced like a front brake line and of course my gas tank is faded a bit. Oh and this beast is a bitch to kick start w/o boots on. ... more »

I finally got my motor back together minus FMF silencer, which is back ordered until the 4/23. Poured in some gas and 5 kicks later it came to life! Sounded so badass and snappy and idled perfect with the stock jetting which I couldn't believe. No water ... more »

Yep, did all that yesterday. got it all back together last night and found a ball bearing in my shop rag during clean up. had to go into Honda IPC and found it goes in after the clutch pushrod. Amazeballz!

It looks like the collar bushing goes under the shift arm which is behind clutch basket. Unless you got spider monkey hands, can't see how to get it on? Now I see how it falls off when removing right cover. Hopefully I can find one available.

We'll pulled the right case cover and found a small damaged hat bushing laying in the bottom. I'm assuming it attaches to the shift fork somewhere. So now trying to find a tool to hold clutch so I can spin the 27m nut off, inspect behind and hopefully ... more »

I did install the clutch cover but didn't notice anything binding up. guess I'll be pulling eng and removing right cover again. The guy shipped me the bottom end bubble wrapped in a milk crate. Guess I should've tried shifting the gears while I had it ... more »

Shifter shaft actually moves a lil bit up and down, just won't click thru gears, but it's stuck in gear.

Wtf? Poured in the oil and installed the gear shifter and noticed shifter won't move. Tried hooking up chain and moving bike back and forth to get it to click into neutral. No go. I can feel clutch engaging during lever pull. I bought this whole bottom ... more »
