CT90 Video Links

Sometimes a video can be very helpful in understanding how to work on something on your CT90, so I have tried to capture the most useful videos I have come across on the internet in the list below.  I have also included video's that I have found interesting or entertaining related to what people do with their CT90's.  I plan on updating this list on a regular basis as I come across useful and interesting videos.

The video at the link below shows how all of the internal components of a CT90 work while the engine is operating and includes detail views of the piston and clutch.

Part 2 - Cylinder and Head
Part 3 - Valve Timing and Clearance
