Sounds like the jets are clogged in the carburetor. Try running some carburetor cleaner through it first. If that doesn't help then you will need to have the carburetor rebuilt. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Brand is not really important. Just go to any motorcycle shop and tell them you want road tires for city streets. They may have two or three tires to choose from. Pick what looks good and go with it.

I believe your bike takes a 250 x 18 tire size on the front and a 3.00 x 17 on the rear. Look at the sizing on the sidewall of the old tires.

SOURCE: checked valve clearances on trx 850 today found 4

Yes, exactly that.
If you have a gap of zero, and it should be 20 then that is correct.
Example, gap shpuld be 20, actual gap is 5, shims = 45, so 45-15(is 20-5=15)=30

After lots of work my 1972 Honda CL100 scrambler is up and running, however, I'm not convinced it's running to it's fullest capacity. Here's what I'm experiencing; at the high RPM end...


They are not a rocket ship, but I would expect closer to 50mph .
need good air filter element.
ignition advance springs can cause a problem, or the advance may be sticking.
need good battery, recheck point gap, timing and valve clearance.
check for exhaust blockage(see if it revs better without the muffler)

You have probably tried most of these, but there is not much else, they should rev sweetly right though the rev range

The bike is starting only with small plug gap.If we set the gap to original it wont start? tell me the reason?


.....A weak battery comes to mind for starters. A carboned up spark plug is another; start with a new spark plug. If I recall correctly from 39 years ago, your bike has ignition points and condenser. Remove the points cover (on left end of the overhead cam), and check the points. Burned? Pitted? Get a new set of points and condenser but for now, just file the points a bit using an emery board or metal fingernail file. Set the points to .015 clearance at the high point on the cam lobe. If you have a timing light you could check the timing and adjust as needed by rotating the points base plate left or right. Bad points give resistance to the flow of electricity. When the points are closed, the condenser gets charged up. Less electricity going through the points means less of a charge going into the condenser. Now the points open up and the stored charge goes from condenser to coil. The coil then produces a spark. With a low charge in the condenser, the spark is weak and will not jump a wide gap. Set the plug gap to very little and the weak spark can jump the gap. The standard gap is .028. ....... I don't recall when Honda move the points to the flywheel but the images below may help if your bike is that style. Clean any rust on noted parts; magnets and pick up coils. Okay, now I have done my part. Now you gotta do yours; please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_177.giftombones49_178.gif

I have a 1972 Honda xl250. It sat outside for 10 years before I got it. Alls it needed was a carb and it cranked after the 4th or 5th kick. About a week later it quit running. I figured out that it was'nt...


You are probably dealing with dirty,burnt,or shorting points. Try replacing the points located at the end of the crankshaft under the cover held on by two screws. You may have to install and reinstall the points several times before you can get the new points to work. Chances are the points in the machine are almost 40 years old. Also , Honda ignition systems run off the battery. In most Honda models if you do not have a good, charged battery , you will not get spark.

Correct spark plug gap is 0.6 -0.7mm and oil viscosity is variable like SAE 20/30w some thing like this and also depends on weather conditions.
