It could be the 'cam chain' but you will be getting into a major overhaul to replace the cam chain so if you are familiar with the teardown of the motor go ahead and do it otherwise take it to a repair shop.

SOURCE: timing chain 110 hymoto pit bike

Put the piston at TDC (Top Dead Center) by lining up the timing marks on the flywheel and stator. Put the cylinder head back together with the cam installed so the high points of the cam lobes are pointing kind of downward. Pull the cam chain taught on the front side of the engine. Put the chain on the cam gear such that, when bolted to the cam, the index mark or marks are in the proper position.

The proper position depends on what markings are on the cam. Some bikes have a single mark; an arrow, a straight line or an "O". The mark should line up with the center-line of the crankshaft. If the cam has two marks opposite each other, the lines should be parallel with the gasket surface. You will need to rotate the unbolted cam left or right just a bit in order to match up the bolt holes to the gear holes.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

My bike is going into gear and revving but not engaging to pull away


IT MAYBE SOMETHING QUITE SIMPLE LIKE, NO FREE PLAY AT CLUCH LEVER, YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 5 MM PLAY AT THE LEVER, THAT IS THE AMOUNT OF FREE MOVMENT YOU CAN PUL IN THE CLUTCH BEFORE ANY PRESSURE IS FELT, HAVE YOU BEEN ADDJUSTING THIS, DOES THE LEVER FEELVERY SPRINGY, IF SO BACK OF THE ADDJUSTER AND GIVE YOURSELF SOME FREE PLAY, PORELY ADJUSTED CONTROLS CAN CAUSE THE CLUTCH TO BURN OUT IF THIS OCCURED WHILE RIDEING THE MACHINE IT MAY BE THE CLUTCH PLATES HAVE FAILED, REMOVE OIL FILLER PLUG, A BURNING SMELL WILL BE NOTICED IN SOME CASES, FURTHERMORE, REMOVE THE FRONT SPROCKET COVER AND CHECK THE RETAINING DEVICE HAS NOT COME AWAY ALOWING THE SPROCKET TO COME OF THE SPLINED SHAFT, OR EVEN ROUNDED THE CENTRE OF THE SPROCKET CAUSING DRIVE FAILURE.

I need to know how to put a new oil gasket 1986 honda xl 100cc. is it as simple as taking out the bolts that hold it on and slide in a new gasket? Thanks


If it is on the right hand side of the bike then yes. Remove the clutch cable by undoing the adjustment nuts on the engine side of the cable and unhooking from the lever. Remove the nut on the gearshift pedal and pull of the pedal. Remove the dipstick. Undo all the nuts on the cover, and remove it. Locate the new gasket on the engine. There are 2 locating dowels so it should not have diffyculty staying in place. Replace the cover and clutch cable and readjust the clutch cable.
On the left hand side of the engine is a bit more tricky as the oil is not leaking past the gasket on the cover itself. There are 2 places where it can leak from. One is behind the drive sprocket. Remove the cover. Undo the nut on the sprocket. Bend back the tabs on the locking plate and remove the sprocket. Drive a self tapping screw into the shaft seal and pull it out with a pair of pliers. Drive a new on back in place. Also see this : http://www.fixya.com/motorcycles/t5649906-1996_yamaha_yz250
If the leak is from behind the alternator you will have to remove the magneto. This is diffycult as you need a puller to get the flywheel off the crank. Then the alternator assembly and only then will you be able to reach the shaft seal. This can be removed as per the previous link.

1995 hanoda 125 three wheeler will not change gears stuck and can not get it out of gear - is there an adjustment or a online manual that i can read to fix the problem - thanks


make sure the clutch cable is properly adjusted, next thing would be to check if your clutch itself is in good condition and adjusted. to test, pull clutch lever in (with bike off) place it in gear, bike should move freely when pushed forward.. if that is all well and doesnt work good, you need transmision repairs,shifting forks probably bent.

Its not really a problom, but i buyin a 05 125 at the weekend wit 15000 miles on it, is this alot, what should i look out for


Does the engine start easy and idle smoothly? Does it accelerate without hesitation?
Any smoke when it starts or when pulling away from stop light? > Bad valve guides.
Any smoke when riding at 30mph? > Piston rings worn or possible previous seize up.
Does the clutch engage and disengage smoothly? Clutch lever easy to pull?
Any oil or coolant fluids leaking after a ride?
Do all gages work? Lights, horn and flashers?
Any red lights on the gages lit up?
Do front and back brakes operate and stop smoothly?
Is the motor oil pretty clean or really dirty? > Sign of how well the owner has cared for the bike

Is the oil "white-ish"? This indicates water in the oil, bad water pump seals normally.
Any funny sounds from the gear box? Anywhere else?
Does it shift smoothly up and down the full range? Neutral light come on properly?
Sprockets still have rounded tips not pointed? Well lubricated chain?

Good tires? How old is the battery? All lights work properly?
Is the upholstery good? Plastics cracked or broken?
Gas tank badly rusted inside? Do the wheels run true or weave?

Do the forks look bent from a side view or front view?
Ever been wrecked? What service work has been done in the past?
With the handlebars driving straight ahead, is the front wheel pointing a slightly different direction?
Does it drive nice or is the bike squirrely to drive? How about around curves and corners?
Do all accessories work properly?
Ask what doesn't work on the bike. What known problems do exist?

.
These are things to look for. I hope this helps.

How to set timming on a 2003 Honda XR80 dirt bike?


This is the closest manual to your bike I can find.
http://www.autorepairmanuals.biz/site/57...
As you can see, it covers from 1979 - 2003 - Honda rarely change their engine configurations when they make something that works.
This manual was probably last printed in 2003 - and later year bikes just added updated pages (Honda does that quite often to save on re-printing new manuals).
The XL model is exactly the same as the XR, except the XL has additional components to make it street legal - battery, head light, tail light, turn signals, horn and street legal tires
