Aftermarket Honda CT90 Carburetor Drain Modification

Relocating the Drain on a Aftermarket Honda CT90 Carburetor  I recently picked up an aftermarket carb for one of my CT90's off of eBay that is very similar in design to a Klein 556A carburetor except for one detail and that was the orientation of the drain fitting.  The drain fitting pointed straight down verses straight back and is a common issue with aftermarket CT90 carbs.

Honda CT90 and CT200 Gas Cap Teardown

Honda CT90 and CT200 Gas Cap Teardown One of the most over looked elements of a Honda CT90 or CT200 fuel system is the gas cap used on the gas tank.  The gas cap plays a critical role and is designed to allow air to enter the tank and prevent a vacuum from forming as fuel is used by the engine as the CT90 uses a gravity feed fuel system.  While allowing the tank to vent air the gas cap also utilizes a labyrinth design to minimize the gas fumes that can escape from the tank. 

Adjusting the Clutch on a Honda CT90

I recently did the video at the link below on how to adjust the clutch on a Honda CT90.  The method I show in the video would apply to Honda CT200's and many other Hondas that have an automatic clutch. I hope you find the video helpful. Helpful Links  (Shop Manuals, Wire Diagram, Model Information, etc.) Link to page with listing of CT90 and CT200 parts available on Amazon

Registering a Small Motorcycle in the State of Vermont

Registering a Honda CT90 in Vermont This post shares in detail my experience in going through the process to register a Honda CT90 in the state of Vermont and then take that registration and use it to get a title here in the state of Washington.  I'll explain the process and then share actual copies of the my completed application and what I received back from the Vermont DMV. I have purchased a number of CT90's that didn't have a title and with the ones that I planned on keeping, I have gone through the "Ownership in Doubt" process here in Washington State that enables you to register and license the bike so you can take it on the road, but there is a long delay in being able to obtain a title.  While the process works, it isn't cheap, and you have to go through a three year waiting period before being able to apply for an official title.  The three years is supposedly to allow time for a previous owner to come out of the woodwork and claim the bike.
