  • All fluids...This will give you a clean slate regardless of what the PO has told you....This includes fork oil.
  • Swingarm grease (special tool required...easy to make)...Well all greased areas for that matter...This will be a long day!
  • Check for proper cable routing.
  • Thermostat for warping or better yet replace it with one from Napa (#115). Make sure to drill a small hole duplicating the stock one if available.
  • Kickstarter bolt....It like to work it's way loose.
  • Get a Honda shop manual...Do you have one already?
  • Valves.
  • Some report problems with the right hand side foot peg falling off...I believe there's a kit to prevent this problem.
  • Inside the carb there is a choke plate that has been known to break...Remove it or replace it with one from XR's Only.
  • XR's Only case saver...Size 15 (just in case you go bigger on the front sprocket).
  • Uncork that piggy!
As for farkles...Never ending! BRP smile

Here's my introduction - Focker's Farkles and counting.

You will get all kinds of opinions regarding bars, guards etc. The above is a pretty good start for some must do's!

Thanks Focker, you rock!

Get a Honda shop manual...Do you have one already?
no Focker

Stupid question....for everything else greased, just use a regular grease gun and standard nipple attachment?

Heh heh I said Nipple.

I've got an extra used manual...Pay shipping and it's yours. The manual explains the swingarm lube procedure well. study

I made a tool that is on loan to another member...Maybe he's done with it and he could send it to you. I'll try & find out?

The tool is in transit as we speak. Should be here soon.
