    Is it normal for a condenser to have continuity from the outside case to the center pole when installed and the points are closed? Mine is new but maybe I overheated it? With both coils and the points wire installed, I get continuity from the condenser case to the center of it.
    1. kirrbby
      Yes it is. When the points close, it connects the points wire, that goes to the condenser, to ground.

      Thanks! You've been very helpful through this 2-year project! In a panic for an event this weekend (can’t take chances) I ordered an entire stator rebuild kit. Expensive, and likely unnecessary, but the wiring on my coils and harness pigtail were in very rough shape. Multiple bare wire spots. Likely repairable but for $45, an acceptable piece of mind. Sad thing, I now have a spare condenser, points....and coils. :)

      Thanks for checking! I'm on the hunt for a 1980 main wiring harness also. That seems to be much harder. All the after market ones stop at 1979.

    I'll look at the shop on Monday and let you know if I have them. I'll see what else the slide n needle fits.

    I am interested in "Picking your brain" regarding rear shocks.
    I have 2 CT-70's, and I live in North San Diego County, CA.!
    (Vista, CA 92084)
    My question, if I find a pair of "Old" used, Ohlins with the "Piggy-Back" reserviors, 14..
    14 and 1/2 inches "Eye to Eye",
    And then have YOU or a bike shop here in North San Diego County, CA rebuild them...

    Thanks for your time...
    Cheers, Donald_50

      Thanks for your reply...
      Ohlins are the Most popular suspension (Front & Rear), for any and all bikes today!
      Ohlins are made in Sweden, and cost starts around $1200.00 and go up from there.
      I mentioned "Old, Used" because I really don't want to spend 2...5 Thousand on these!
      There are many videos on "YouTube" regarding Ohlins Rear Shocks.

    What’s the difference between a Dax seat and Ct70 Ko seat? I’m looking to get a kepspeed Dax leather lower profile seat for my Ct70. The only place I can find one is is from the UK so I wanted to make darn sure it would fit before I ordered it. They mentioned the locking mechanism on the seat was different. Key instead of leather.

    What would be the best way to go about taking off and replacing the decals on the frame of Ct70 Ko? Just the Honda decals I want replaced.
    1. racerx
      Gentle heat, no more than ~125F, and a LOT of patience. Start at one end, lift & pull...slowly. Most of the adhesive should stick the the old decal. roll what remains, using your fingers. Cleaner formula paste wax is a safe means of dissolving the last of the adhesive residue. Wash the area with detergent & water, to strip the paste wax, in preparation for the new decals.

    My first project K2 70 bought partially disassembled handle bar seems to be original but there are no perches for the brakes, also came with a couple different on off switches and light switches can't find a photo of what is supposed to be there, schematics show there should be perches for brake?

    Hi Bob,
    I'm restoring a 64 S90 and have been following your posts on the Yahoo site (with difficulty) . I would like to purchase a face plate and Denso or Nippon Seiki overlay if you still have them available. My gauge did not have the outer one and there aren't any identifying markings on the case. Is there a way to tell which is which? My email is Thanks, Bill
