Why wont my bike start when it gets hot ?....

Hi, Stacey and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ignition coil.
2. Faulty spark plug cables.
3. Faulty temperature sensor.
4. Faulty starter motor.
5. Valves adjusted too tight.
6. Spark plug gap too wide.
7. Fuel has vapor lock.

87 honda xr 80 will not start

Have you checked spark with an inline spark tester while trying to turn over? I would check all leads and grounds, if all are good I would use a multi meter to check resistance of your coil. If you get infinite resistance, your coil is bad and needs replaced. Hope this helps.

2002 XR 200 sat for about 6 yrs with no attention. I drained the fuel, cleaned the carb, changed oil, new spark plug. still won't start. what next?

Remove the plug lead and plug. Earth the body of the plug to the barrel. Kick and check for spark.
If no spark you have found a problem.
If you get spark the problem is most likely the carby.
Remove the float bowl from bottom of carby and check that both jets are clear.
