    I have build a few motorcycle motors and some two stroke scooter motors. This is my first small Honda motor build. Like all other builds, my advice is take your time and look for good documentation

    Hi my name Jason, I was wondering if you are rebuilding ct70 motors still. I'm getting ready to do mine, and read some post about some of the motors you have done. I'm looking at 88cc kit. So if you can help please let me know.

    Thanks

    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.

      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.

    Scooter,
    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

      Scooter,
      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.
