Re: 83 Honda XR350R Wyoming

I bought of these when they first came out in 83' - great bike that handled all of the dirt riding trails & places around here & did well on the trails in New Mexico & Colorado, wish I still had it.

Re: 83 Honda XR350R Wyoming

ouch. Old bikes can be a pain. My 1981 SR185 is very annoying to me as it won't stay running and all it does is cost me money.

Re: 83 Honda XR350R Wyoming


closer inspection found oil dripping from the clutch cover near the starter shaft. that and oil over-filled contributed to the condition. no gasket, only had sealer on clutch cover. so it got a gasket and replaced the starter shaft and compression release shaft seals.
the oil drain plug had an old washer under a second one. the exhaust had to come off to pull the oil line. no drama with the oil leak job.
