Default 2004 CRF80F Specs

I've managed to remove the damaged seal, and have done some magic with JB Weld, if I may say so myself. I'm going to hit up my local seal and bearing guy tomorrow. Honda won't be open 'til Tuesday.

I'm not having any luck finding the engine oil type and capacity, or the proper chain adjustment.

Any help?

edit: Never mind! When I tried a search for 'chain adjustment', I found a .pdf of the owner's manual.

The answers are: 10W-30 (Non-EC) oil; approximately 1 U.S. qt; and 25 -35mm (1.0 - 1.4 inches).

That doesn't sound good right off the bat. Pics?

Is there a drive chain in the world that doesn't have a spec of 1-1.4"? LOL!

Didnt want to say anything, in fear of coming off as a smart-ass. Besides most oil capacities are located on the oil fill arent they.

Well, yes, Mr. Smarty-Pants!

The SSA Triumphs are 35 - 40mm (1.5748031496"). You'd swear it's too loose when you look at it when it's adjusted to the '40' end.


Moke, I'm repairing a poorly treated dirt bike. My nephews just jump on it, fire it up and ride. No maintenance. Chain got so loose it jumped the sprocket and chewed up the shifter shaft seal (after it buzz-sawed the aluminum above it) and busted a big hole in the stator cover.

I don't know how many times it happened: I only found out about it when I was up at the property and saw a puddle under the bike. They had just put the chain back on and rode more. They are 13, 12 and 11. It isn't their fault - they are just poorly trained.

I JB'd up the holes and built up the case that had been gnawed on. Nothing structural; just a gasket surface and (hopefully) some protection for the seal

Now waiting for the bike store to open, maybe tomorrow. Apparently the seal is proprietary- my seal and bearing store doesn't have the size in his catalog.

Good luck Pushrod! Jb weld can be a mastered art form sometimes. I know, it got me through a race or two.
