Motorcycle Repair/Honda xr80r


I just picked up an xr80r, I believe it's a 1982. There was no spark plug in it, can you give me a number? Anything else you can tell me about the bike would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Paul, using eBay for a search engine I found "Honda XR80 spark plug" listings to show:

CR7HSA to be the preferred spark plug.

The original platform was the XR75, way back in 1973...

Need help with vintage Hondas from the 1960s? I am an expert with 250-305cc bikes in particular and most all of the other pre-91 models, in general. I do NOT claim to have a great deal of experience on Gold Wings, Cruisers, ATC/ATVs and dirt bikes.


I have owned/ridden/maintained Honda motorcycles for 35 years. I have written five books on Honda repairs and collecting. I was a service manager for two Honda shops back in the 1980s.
