1983 Honda XR 350 - Reattaching the exhaust pipe w/ flanges.

1983 Honda XR 350 - I pulled the exhaust pipe off a twin exhaust xr 350 and cant remember which way the 4 half circle spacers go on the locking flanges. They seem to be too loose whichever way I turn them around.

I cant quite figure out which spacers you are refering to. The only thing I can think to suggest is the exhaust schematic on If I knew for sure I could try to look at my bike but there's no telling what previous owners could have done. Sorry. I'd really like to help.

Fixing my exhaust from having smoke come out while running on my Honda XR 200r prolink model 1983

All bikes will have some smoke come out, the important thing is the colour of the smoke

White smoke is actually steam and is because gasoline has water in it at molecular level. This is normal especially on cold days just after start up.

Blue smoke is oil. This can be from worn cylinder rings, broken oil scraper rings in a 4 stroke. Also worn valve guides.

Black smoke is rich mixture, burning too much gasoline and makes the plugs black and sooty.

The 1985 XT250 has one exhaust port so its header is a single pipe.On the other hand the 1985 XT350 has two exhaust ports and double header pipe.I don't think you can fit either one.

1983 Honda XR500RE service manual

Hi, Liddlerob645 the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

What kind of horsepower increase will an FMF power core 4 exhaust give me and what kind of sound will it give me for an XR100R

FMF are great pipes, and a fantastic addition to any motorcycle. For the XR, you could expect a few more horse power, and you will notice a lot more tourqe around mid throttle. The sound will be awesome!

I have a 1984 honda xr 350 and i've changed the spark plug, pulled out the carbs and cleaned them, and changed the airfilter. I still can't get it to kickstart no matter how long i try. its getting gas and...

Those bikes can be a pain to start after they've sat awhile. What always worked for me was twist the throttle a bunch. I mean make sure its flooded. Then lay the bike over on its left side until the gas runs out the overflow. Stand it up and lay it down until it stops running out. Then I squeeze the decompression lever and cycle the motor. Now just barely pull on the decompression lever to open the valve just barely. Get it to top dead center and give her a good kick with a twist of the throttle. Becareful it could kick back.
This technique works for when the bike stalls when its hot. Most important part is if you think its flooded lay it over and start the process over. Remember your XR has two carbs and will flood QUICK. After some practice you'll be able to hear it in the exhaust pipe if she's flooded or if she trying to come around. Trust me. I have four of these bikes. Two 83's, one 84 and my beloved 85.
