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.

Looks good - how does it run?

Do you work on these old bikes for folks on a regular basis?
If yes, I've got a 1986 Yamaha TT225 that needs to be brought back to life, that I'd like to talk to you about.

Re: 83 Honda XR350R Wyoming

I remember my 85 XL350. The dual carbs are a ****, but once set right, she ran perfect. Good power delivery and 6spd was a nice combo to DS on.
