Hey all, new to the forum and wanted to start a thread on my CT as I've got ALOT to do and will definitely be needing some help along the way! I had 2 CT70s, a K0 and K1 and due to finances had to sell them. Of course I regretted that and after missing the days of ripping the bikes around I decided to pull my last CT, a 1970 parts bike out of my boneyard. Used and thoroughly abused it was froze up, no carb, no wiring, loads of spray paint among other issues. I decided to do my best to bring it back. Got the motor free'd up, new coil and (China) carb, fixed the condenser wiring and got spark. Set timing, did some odds and ends and went for a start...no love. Checked compression, nada. Adjusted valves, still no compression. Finally gave up on here running and after some diagnosis of a compression tester that was faulty I decided to pull the top end. What I found was compressed and froze rings, to the point I had to break them off in addition to leaky valves. After much deliberation on how much I wanted to invest in the heap I decided to go all in and order an 88cc kit from Dr. Atv with new head as well. Then after evaluating my fork situation I splurged on a new disc fork setup. The kit should be here tomorrow and the fork following so I'm gearing up. I've done 2 stroke top ends before but this will be new to me. The disassembly went smooth and I gained alot of knowledge of things I'm not familiar with like cam, chain, valves etc. so I'm excited. Just wanna do the top end properly considering how much I have invested in a bike that was destined for the scrap yard. I was going to refurb the frame that was pretty severely damaged but found a Honda replacement frame in great shape for a great price! Couldn't be happier. Thanks in advance, can't wait to discuss the rebuild!
