    Ct90 k1 carb overflowing

    I have a ct90 k1 with the early "oddball" carb. T90 KA. http://dratv.com/coodk1caclon.html From my research, its on early k1 and then they switched to a two screw fuel bowl similar to a ct70 k0-77 carb for the rest of the k1 run and up. That is the k29 carb. The fuel bowl has four screws to...

    Ct90 out of a long storage

    I pulled my ct90 out of storage with the idea of getting it running and selling it. Now im not so sure i want to sell it. I purchased it along with a z50 k1 for somewhere between 5-600$ in 2015 i think. I didnt really want it but I really wanted the hard tail so what the hell. According the...

    I couldn't pass this one up

    Picked up a beat CF70 Chaly the other day for 320$. I told myself no more mod bikes just clean survivors. Well, that didn't last long. I think it's a 74 CF70 general export. Hard to tell with the crappy paint. Originally white. The gray paint flakes off with garden hose level pressure. Vin...

    Turn signals kill engine

    This weekend i swapped out a set of bent handlebars for a straight set I just received for my CL70. I unplugged all the connections in the headlight bucket. Unplugged the left and right controls. All pretty simple stuff. Swapped it all over. Now when i have the bike running and i select the...

    Cl70 carb issue

    Ive been slowly rebuilding my cl70 during the last month or two. I sold the 108 that was in it and put in an xl70 motor with an 88 kit that i rebuilt and had laying around. Im having a weird problem with the carb. If i tighten the carb cap as i get closer to tight the rpm increases. Once i...

    Another Cl70

    I just picked up another CL70 k2, this time in rudy red. Its missing some parts and doesnt have the original motor. But for the price and relative rarity, i decided to grab it. It looks to have an AE03e engine in it which I think is a CRF50 engine, from '06-08ish. Just my looking at it seems...

    New to me...

    Picked up a cl70 k2 this weekend. Looks like I'm the third owner. Story is that it was found by the second owner in a barn. Pretty stoked about this one. Sure don't see them for sale often. Has a Chinese carb on it, but I was able to snag the original Keihin. Going to do a very light...

    HK0 head and cylinder options.

    Im in the process of rebuilding my HK0 motor. The head had a stripped spark plug, and now its also got a stump of a screw and an easy out broken off in one of the fin cover holes. The cylinder itself looks to be ok, but will probably need to be one size over. It has some staining inside it...

    2013 07 30 15.54.11 by Tripod posted Aug 11, 2013 at 4:00 PM I finally tore down my HK0 motor that i hasnt run since 2013. I literally bought it, drove home, took it up and down the street once, then put it in storage. It has a stripped out spark plug hole in the head. REALLY stripped out. I...

    st90 cable routing

    Does anyone have a good picture of how the cables and wires get routed for an st90? I have heard that alot of it was just however the dealer set it up, but with the cables as well as the brake signal wire and turn signal wires its getting to be kind of a mess behind the headlight. Did the bike...

    The usual muffler rot.

    St90 in the mix

    I said i was done buying for the year. Out of habit though, i came home from work and checked craigslist, and this bike had been posted fifteen minutes ago. Local to me, and i was pretty sure i could fit it in the car. Seller said he had lots of bites but would hold it for me until the next...

    Decal preservation

    I picked up a 1979 school bus yellow ct70 and its surprisingly original. It was quite a surprise after working on beat up hardtail z50s for the last two years. My goal is to get the bike as close to 100% original as possible. I noticed that some of the decals are starting to peel in the...

    Keeping the patina look

    HI, I have a Candy Emerald Green HKO that i bought years ago with the intention of doing a full concourse restoration on it. Things have changed and Ive decided that I dont want to go that route. I'd like to keep the aged green patina and get it into a solid runner. After looking at the...

    Fork pipe failure

    While following racerX's instructions on refilling the k1 front forks, i noticed one of mine was bleeding air when compressed. Forks were rebuilt with new gaskets and o rings. I noticed that there were bubbled coming up from the area i circled. Is this failure common?

    stator plate sealant not o rings

    After a deep cleaning of my stator plate the sealant that covers up the screws came off. This sealant normally covers up all the small screws that hold the wire loom, lighting coil, points coil, condenser, etc. What kind of sealant can I use that will hold up against motor oil? Just regular...

    Z50 k0 build

    Picked up this bike along with a k1 for 100$ each last November. I rebuilt the k1 first, and spent a good portion of the year on it. I learned alot and made most of the usual mistakes. The bikes spent their life in the central valley of California on a farm, and probably taught a few...

    50/70 fork options

    Im looking at upgrading my pogo stick front end to something that performs better, and if possible upgrade to a disk brake. Z50 and CT70 front ends seem to be interchangeable, depending on how long you want the forks to be. Is it possible to fit a CRF/XR 70 front fork to one of these bikes? I...
