  1. Hello!

    Member Introductions
    Hello everyone. Found this gem of a forum after purchasing my first ever bike, a 1975 CB 200. The website is one of the better discussion websites I’ve seen. Kudos to everyone involved in the development and support of the site! As this is my first bike, I’m sure I’ll have more questions than...
  2. 1974 CB200 - Seattle

    Bikes For Sale
    I am selling my 1974 Honda CB200. I bought this bike as a project a couple of years ago, and while I had a great time building it to its current state, I do not have time to ride it or push the build to the next level. This bike has a decent amount of character, with some minor surface rust on...
  3. CB200 Intake Manifold O-Ring?

    Engine Discussion
    Hiya folks! I think I'm finally narrowing down my fuel issues in my CB200. I've been fighting with it fouling out plugs lately, and I hardly get the chance to put any miles on it. I've pulled the carburetors off again (I rebuilt them the beginning of this year) to go over them again and make...
  4. '76 CB200 Won't Idle (short vid inside)

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I purchased a 1976 CB200 a few weeks ago as my first bike. I knew it didn't run, but I was excited to pick up a new hobby of working on bike engines. I got my license ten days ago - and haven't gotten to ride yet! I've cleaned the carbs and replaced the jets and gaskets. At this point I think...
  5. '74 CB200 Charging issues!

    Electrical Discussion
    Good evening! I am the owner of a 1974 CB200 with just under 1k miles on the odo. The bike runs and rides great after an extensive carburetor overhaul, however it seems something in the charging system is amiss, as it isn't keeping the battery up. Let's go down a list of everything I've done...

    Electrical Discussion
    I have a 1975 CB200T and I have repaired my starter button several times. The internal plastics are cracked and broken and held together with tape.

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Howdy Honda Twins Forums, I’ve been banging my head on this problem for days now, and would really like some advice from those more experienced: I’m working on my 1973 Honda CB200. Currently, the right cylinder is firing like a dream (so far as I can tell with my hand over the pipe)...
  10. (improvement) bottom clutch lever CB200

    Engine Discussion
    Sorry if it has been posted somewhere, but just want to share this, the idea came from my bestfriend, and since it is doable and theoritically correct (learnt this physic/pulley/reduce force when in school), so we believed that will work, in fact it works super nice. No hurt feeling when in...
  11. Malfunctioning starter clutch on my CB200

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hi everyone-- New member here with a 1974 CB200. Has only 4,700 miles, and purs like a kitten(when it's running). Sometimes when I would ride, once I would come to a stop the bike would shut off. Note: I've been only been able to ride with the choke on, so I think I just need to adjust my carb...

  14. 76 CB200T - Misfiring at High RPMs

    Engine Discussion
    Hey guys, New to the forum but not new to vintage bikes. I have a 76 CB200T I'm working on getting reliable. When I got it, put a new battery in it and cleaned the carbs and it fired right up. The bike idles great and runs perfectly at low RPMs. When I take it around the block and get it...
  15. Camshaft end measurement

    Engine Discussion
    Hello folks, can anyone confirm the measurement for this left side (contact point) barrel diameter? Because I found out that the contact point base diameter is 20mm, but the camshaft barrel measured only 17mm, so I have quite a gap to that. I suspect that the previous owner trim the diameter...

  17. 1974 cb200 idling troubles

    Non-Model Specific Honda Twin Topics
    My 74 cb200 is having trouble maintaining a 1000 rpm idle, sometimes it will stick around 1000 where I want it, and other times it will idle at 3000 rpms, or it will slowly and creepily climb in rpms until I shut it off. I've cleaned the carbs and jets thinking it was a fuel problem so I'm not...

  20. CB200 fork dust seals

    Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I've been looking at the threads on the chrome cap issue. Just done mine but they were well corroded and stuck fast - one came off intact but the other got damaged a bit. It's hard going and needs plenty of patience. What a terrible bit of design! The reason for the new thread is that I need to...
