    I don't think it's a fluke. I bought a reproduction copy of the manual for my '76 CT90 (or what would be the K7 in that series). It does list a K7 on the back page in a similar spot...

    I have also seen that K7 in my CT90 books so I don't think that nomenclature is a fluke. It's just that nobody seems to reference anything past a K6 on web sites or regular conversation.

    My guess that in '76 the Feds made Honda change the model designations to reflect the years. The publications and manuals,used thru out the English speaking world didn't change?

    Can't tell you much about the Astrea, other than than the fact that the motor's lower end is garden-variety 49cc architecture. That covers Z50, CT70 & the non-US C90. This should fit a 12V alternator, might even be plug & play. Honda is remarkably consistent with their wiring layouts & color-coding.

    Well that all sounds good. Judging by the ad, this seller might have/list more of these. If someone else wants one, try messaging him. Might still be available from Honda.

    The seller says he has a lot of these stators...in case anyone is interested. Or maybe wait and I'll report after I receive mine.

    I ended up adding another stator to my order. So I got a price break with combined shipping. They arrived today. Spankin new in sealed Honda packaging. Comparing to the 90s CT70 stators they have one extra wire. It's pink and is obviously a gear indicator type wire that in in the grommet with the green/red neutral indicator wire. Other than that the wire colors are the same. They would need to be reconfigured in the modular plug, but once that's done, I'm betting it'll work. Honda quality stator at a price to match the aftermarket equivalent. I'm very happy with my purchase. If I get to feelin froggy, I'll try one in my 93 and report back again.

    Seeing how that pink wire is paired with the traditional green w/red trace neutral lead, my educated guess is that it's for a 4th gear indicator light. Some Asia-specific models had rotary shift pattern transmissions, the "universal" 1D/3U, or 1D/2U shift pattern...with a twist...one more shift and the trans goes from 4th (or 3rd) to 1st. From what I hear, this works in places where traffic requires running the piss out of the bike, then grabbing a handful of brakes to stop at the next light .4km down the road. IMO...in the US of A it's :censored: suicidal.

    I think some of the TRX90's have a 4th gear indicator too...there are 2 sensors that go into the case. Hooked the green/red up to the wrong one before and my light came on in 4th gear. They are regular 4up transmissions tho, not rotary. Guess it's so you don't go lookin for another gear, lol.

    I just wanted to share...a tip I spose.
    I recently went looking to buy some wheel bearings. Found a pretty good buy on the All Balls kit that comes with Xtra seals. About $11 shipped. Comes with 2 bearings to do one wheel, plus 2 rear and one front seal...enough seals to do 3 wheels...1 front and 2 rear. Then you can buy extra bearings from many different places. They are 12mm ID x 37 OD x 12 mm thick. And used on a TON of different bikes.
    The steering stem kit these guys have looks like a good buy too.

    I bought this recently for about 100 bucks. I have the same seat on 2 of my other bikes. I believe it is genuine Honda.
    I'm posting it, to brag a little, but also to maybe help my Lilhonda friends to spot a bargain if they see it. If you don't mind the ST label on it, it's a very tough and comfortable seat.

    Is the seatpan and foam just like the CT?

    Both are different than early Ct's. This seat seems to be the same as the 90's CT70 pan and foam, but with a early CT70 style catch...so it works with early ct frame and seat latch.

    That is the ultimate, off-the-shelf, CT70 assrest...comfortable, durable just what you'd expect from Honda, after 30 years of product development. We're talking light-years beyond K0-79 seating. That is, essentially a service replacement, for the last generation AB26 Dax circa 1996-98.

    That's what's on my daily rider, beneath a different (aftermarket) cover. No issues with the pan, or foam and that foam is tough to improve upon.

    If you happen to find one of these, snag it. They were added to the NLA parts list circa 2005.
