    I'm gonna start off by apologizing, because I'm completely new here, and to this bike, and I'm probably gonna sound like a big dumbass, but the other day I walked outside to an unusual smell. Bike had been sitting unridden for close to a week, and there was now some new... residue under it, and...

    In making a new loom, the wiring diagram is clear....except for this stray ground connection. See photo. Is it just an extra ground connection for future use? Just wondering if I need to include this connection in the new loom. I just wire up a new regulator/rectifier combo and was able to...

    I’ve searched around for a CB200T specific front brake switch restoration and haven’t found a post with good images. I’m remaking the electrical loom from scratch for the learning kicks. Highly recommend. It’s difficult to describe the sense of immense satisfaction when the wiring diagram...

    Hey everyone, so I have a 200T I’ve been working on, it would run fine for a few minutes and then start only running on one cylinder, I rebuilt the carbs and put acetone in the tank to melt the epoxy liner off of the inside, out everything back together and it ran fine for about 45-50 miles...

    Hi guys. I’ve got some new bushings to fit on my newly powdercoated swingarm. Thrilled. The bushings are a kind of high density plastic. Do you recommend heating the swingarm up in the oven and fitting these bushings? Will the heated swingarm warp or damage the bushings? I was then going to...

    Could anyone help me with getting a stubborn oil seal out of the points base (CB200T)? I’ve bunged it up with some pliers already so there’s no turning back. I’ve got a new one on hand. There seems to be metal under the rubber portion. I just want to make sure it’s ok to be grabbing this as part...

    Hello, fellow HondaTwins members, After my 3rd son was born my amazing wife asked me to sell my Honda VFR. She was an X-ray tech and saw too many victims of bike mishaps. I complied. That was 21 years ago and this weekend I reentered the world of motorcycling with her support. I brought home a...
  12. Project Logs
    Working on a Candy Gold Metallic '75 CB200T as my first bike to restore. Kind of debated on whether to specify the "lady wrencher" part but if it inspires more women to tinkering around with mechanics, then I'm all for it. I'll be asking stupid questions and for sage advice throughout the...

    Help! I have a 1975 CB200T and I was checking my oil and noticed it was very thin with a gas smell. When I drained the oil it flowed out like water. I have seen some one else in the forum talk about gas seeping into the case, but I could not find the thread. Does anyone else have this issue and...

    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.

    Just bought this new project bike and got it to start and throttle up but it dies when I let off the throttle. After running the bike for a bit the left exhaust pipe was still cold and while the right was hot. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Spark plug has a spark because when I removed the...

    My 75 cb200t has rusted through on the neck. I thought about welding a fix but I would rather pick up a new frame. I see a few frames on line but they all come with a Bill of Sale only. Does anyone have any experience getting a new frame on your title? Especially in NC. Thanks
