Question about 2005 Honda XR 100 Motard

Open Question

Just bought a 1990 Honda XR100R. It is not the motard version. Would'nt start so I took off the carb and cleaned it up. It is now getting fuel but still wont fire. Spark plug looks good, cleaned that too. Dont know where to start with the settings of Air/fuel or idle screws. Anyone with some insite would be appreciated.

I would think about investing in a carb re-build kit.

finally sorted when I replaced both plugs. I've never come across one failing instantly before in 30 years of motorcycling (maybe that's because I ride old bm's!)

IF you have a battery get a new one ; put in new gas ; super; dsid you ajest any screws on carb. You tight need to run a prime tank right to your carb to prime it; and then hook your tank backup new gas lines to your carb. Now break out with the WD40 to spray all switches for rust.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Clean the air filter. Install a new stock NGK spark plug.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

hi, each lead has the specific number on it. if you do this correctly then they genrally give you an idea to where the sit in the coils( the way they bend :-) ) also i believe the coils are better off been attached to the frame once you are sure leads are in corect order and possitioned correctly in the coils.i just presumed the coils neaded earthing. make sure battery is pleny charged as a bad battery can just hinder. it is also very easy to flood the bike so just check the plugs again. if they are unusually wet then dry them off and try again . otherwise maybe try cleaning all electics.

hope this somehow helped

your carb needs to be cleaned/rebuilt,the jets are clogged from the old fuel,if the fuel that was in the tank had a really bad smell,then the fuel is bad,and what was in the tank is also inside of carb.(carb kit).

2003 honda 400 xr will not run unless the choke is wide open. any ideas?

The slow circuit in the carburetor is dirty or plugged up. You will need to take the carb off the bike, remove the bowl, and clean the slow jet and blow through the carb body to make sure it is not plugged full of dirt,corrosion, or gelled fuel. Unless the slow circuit is clear it will not idle.
