Hondasaki

I built this for my wife, but she doesn't ride it enough.So I race it in Pitbike races! Its a stock XR100 engine in a big wheel Kaw 80 frame.Jemco made the pipe.I customized the Kaw airbox to work w/ the XR carb.The bottom half of the frame has been re-made and powder-coated.It handles very nice, but is a bit slow.

Not to be mean or anything, but aren't XR 100 motors way slower and less torquey than CR85 motors? I have a CR85 and it smoked my friends 100...




Thats why people BORE it out when they do the conversion. I seen many with the Kitaco 145 bore, that suckers rips!!! and can keep up wit the 85

You have to remake the frame and the part the bolts to the engine. Shoulda researched more. Its ok, thats why we have forums. I know just the place to, go to ThumperTalk and make an account, start a thread on it or search it up there. Trust me, MANY MANY people have done very nice conversions on thumpertalk. Hope this helps and c u on thumpertalk!

Conversion

I hope you are a good welder or have access to one who works cheap!Before I decided to chop up 2 perfectly good bikes, I looked at several different conversions and took lots of pictures.

I had to completely re-make the bottom half of the frame including the shock mounts.Re-make the frame that comes down beside the carb or custom fab an intake manifold. You want to get the countershaft sprocket as close as you can to the swingarm pivot to keep the chain from falling off. There are many more little pieces that will have to be made yourself.

It is definately not a bolt-in affair and will take lots of time and patience as well as some engineering skills on your part.



Good luck-were all counting on you!
