Dirt bike cam shain tensioner

You must remove the entire tensioner and leave it out while you swap out the sprocket. Set it to it most retracted position and then install. Adjust it after it is installed. Make sure you have some slack or you will break the chain.

I have a 2003 xr 80 dirt bike. The spark plug is new there is gas and the oil is good and it wont start. Should i clean my carb?

yes, clean out the carb if you add gas directly to the carb intake, and it runs for a few seconds and shuts off, then you know you have a gas supply problem at the carburetor.

Need to know how to set timing on 1989 xr 250 r motor cycle

The ignition timing on your bike is CDI based and cannot be changed. Absolutely no way to change it. Valve timing is a different matter and involves static timing marks on the OHC gear. If the bike runs at all then the valve timing is set properly as is.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

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

This is the closest manual to your bike I can find.
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
