Re: DIY rear foot peg Question.

$24.99 each new https://www.af1racing.com/store/Scripts ... duct=85437 AF1 has free shipping on orders over $49, so the $49.98 delivered should qualify.

Have you asked Terry if he has used? He usually comes through for me at a great price.

Re: Vintge Honda CT90 Coil

The prior owner installed the current coil, but it looks kinda like that. It's orange. I think it's a random act of China coil that just happens to work. Might be the same, might not. If I were to order, I'd go with the one you selected, looks closer to OEM Honda. Bike's not too complicated, the ora...

Re: Vintge Honda CT90 Coil

Hey Nate, Yep our 90's will look similar. Subtle differences like the BRS, or that on mine they had discontinued the left brake handle to control the rear brake. If you want to go super-expensive on the coil, I think mine is one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/High-Performance-Ignition-Honda-CT70...

Re: Vintge Honda CT90 Coil

Nate,

When you start it after stopping when hot, are you giving the throttle a little twist?

Cold should be some degree of choke. Running for an hour seems to like throttle twist to start.

Re: Vintge Honda CT90 Coil

Hey Rob, I considered the fuel issue as well. Keep in mind the insulator for my carb is about 1/4" thick and very hard to miss. The carb won't install correctly without it. The way my carb is setup, I think any boiling would exit out the carb vent and fresh fuel would come in to cure it. Even with m...

Re: Vintge Honda CT90 Coil

I put one of the Dr's 120cc kits in my CT90. :D You're looking at about $25 for an aftermarket coil/ sparkplug wire. 2 Fast Moto is pretty reliable, they sell quite a bit on eBay and everything I've gotten from them was good. For old bikes, I tend to go aftermarket vs OEM on certain things, no benef...

Re: Mg mounts at ima $250

That's two and a half times more than OldTimer Garage 's asking price. Horrible value. Is someone buying it for function, or for the Waffenamt stamp? Lots of other options if you're looking for function. I'd expect there's probably a member here who also has a Wehrmacht Zündapp, such a person might...

Re: 2013Retro

Hey Mark,

I did my 2001 Patrol with the battery in place. It was tight but possible. Haven't had to do much on my Retro. As you note, removing the battery gives more wiggle room and might be faster just from the extra ease of access.

Re: 2013Retro

The rod seal would need to be replaced if you're leaking from the clutch side of the gearbox. Not sure you can access it with the gearbox still in the bike, might be possible if you remove the battery but it's going to be tight and require a long magnet to get in there and pull it out. If you remove...

Re: Chicago Craigslist - 1995 2WD $3,200

I beleive these had an FD with a diff in it full time. If you fly the chair it can damage the diff, parts are very rare for them. Also I think that if one wheel slips you loose all forward motion. No lock on the diff. It's also going to be kickstart only, have "Oh the Soviet Union just collapsed a ...

Re: 2013Retro

I paid $3,500 for a Retro Solo with 34,000kms on it. $2,500 if it's still mostly good seems fair. The clutch rod seal is an easy fix/ common problem. Parts diagram is at: https://live.uralcatalog.com/details/3013 Part #8, the slider ring, is a seal. They're $3.99 each for the official part. If you g...

Re: Hard starting '14.

seems several folks have wondered how many turns from the closed position if there is one, of the throttle body adjustment screw is a good starting point It's no mystery. You just adjust them so that they're balanced and the idle is 1,050 RPM. There's no "number of turns" to it. My bike's a little ...

Not mine, it's a 650 not 750 unless the bike's been bored. Sportsman? Final drive looks a little odd.
