The 90/90-19 will be a little bit too big for a 1.4" width rim. A minimum width would be 2.25" with 2.5" being the best fit.

2005 CRF100 Motard (Race)



After doing a lot of research, this is what I have decided to try on our xr100.

The xr80's have a 16" front wheel. I bought one on ebay for less than $50 (including shipping).

Shinko makes an 80/80-16 & a 90/80-16. They market this tire is a "scooter tire" with a 75 mph rating. I'm not expecting great grip out of this tire, but should be fine to teach the son how to ride on the katy track. When he get's quicker, we will likely have to do some upgrading. Looks like these tires are going to cost about $40-$50/ea

The rear, I'm going to go with the Bridgeston BT45 100/90-16 on the factory 16" rim. The prices I have found on this tire are about $75 - $85.

After I get everything in and try it on the mini track, I will post up how it worked out. I'm sure it won't work nearly as well as the $1000 alternative (17" rims, spokes, labor, race tires), but for what my son is going to use it for, I think it will work fine.

I got the parts in and install it on the bike. I pinched the tube when installing the rear tire, so I was only able to ride around the neighbor hood for a couple of minutes before the tire would go flat.

But so far, the bike felt pretty good with the above combination.

I tried to patch it, but the hole was right next to the valve stem.

I ordered another tube, so it will be a few days until we get to fully test it.

I have a set of used street tires in 16/19 from my crf150. That will at least give you a feel for how it will handle in that size. Tires have 50% tread. $50.00

I also have a complete, ready to bolt on, RM85 front end conversion with 17 excel front rim. Disk brake. Older front end, 2000 model, with non-upside down forks. I had the stem machined (not cheap) and welded to an XR80 stem and bearing set-up to be completely bolt on for the XR100 / XR80. Slides on and off in 30 seconds. You will need to run a 17 in back for it to work perfectly cause the forks are kinda long to handle well with a 14 or 16 inch rear tire. $250.00.
