Get a service manual, keep the oil and filters changed, and drive it like you stole it!!!
I had an 81 xl-125, it was a great bike, enjoy!
Change from points to electronic ignition - the stock Honda points ignition will wear out quite early in the life of the bike and cause untold problems. On the 1977-1993 XR & 1980 + XL 75/80's the later CD ignition system is a straight bolt on, I don't know if that is true for the 100cc engines. Check compression and cam chain wear as well - low compression and stretched cam chains on these engines cause problems and need to be corrected.
The cam chain probably needs tightened a little bit. Preserve it more than you beat it. Looks to be in real good condition. Also give it a nice wash. I'd love to have that bike! I've got an 1974 XL 100 though.
nice bike,look after that baby so others can enjoy it IF u ever move it on-a cool classic........try not to wreck it!
I know nobody checks this...The OP posted that question almost a year ago, saw one answer and hasn't been on TT since. Whattayagonnado.
may it inspire other xl owners to restore these wee gems
I love that bike!
