honda xr 100
well I got my daughter a 1999 xr 100. first time out she was learning to ride and I am pretty sure she ran at near full throtle in first gear for a bit too long.
The thing still runs and has compresson. how much I dont know. but the kick start still feels about the same.
she rode it to me saying its making a new noise. I checked and the oil level was a bit low. added about half a quart with no results.
the sound is like an exhaust leak type. consatant threw out the RPM band.
the sound also reminds me of a sticky lifter in a car only a bit more tinney.
any ideas? I am brand new to bike engines but defintaly have a good amount of experince on 4x4 truck engines trannys and T cases.
thanks for any and all help!
