    A friend i work with called me out of the blue to see if I was interested in her husband’s bike. She sent a photo and I was intrigued. I already have 8 motorcycles. My more classic bikes are a 1976 BMW R90/6 and a 1993 Honda CB750. Normally I wouldn’t buy a small displacement bike that old but...

    Bought a 79 cm185t as a learner (hadn't been back on a bike in 3 years) and it ran when I got it. I had planned on riding it for a bit and then giving it to my girlfriend, but she wanted nothing to do with the thing. Held out for a little while, and then the electronics started to get wonky...

    Hi all! Glad to have joined the forum. I took a break from bikes for a while because of a move from Philly to NYC. I didn't know if I'd have space for tools or the bike itself when I moved, and now that I have the space, I'm super stoked to have bought another CM! I've got a 1979 cm185T that...

    Does anyone have a decent supplier for ignition parts? Been looking for a condenser, points and coil for my CM185T, can't seem to find a reasonable price on any of them. Does a condenser really cost $90? All the ones listed specifically for a cm185t are on ebay at high prices, seems like a lot...

    Hello Friends! I am from Greeley, Colorado and I have been gifted with a 1979 Twinstar CM185T. My kids were giving a honda scooter from the 60's, cleaned it up, and the guy who wanted it traded them across. Needless to say, the Twinstar didn't run. We are currently in the process of rebuilding...

    Hello, Im Mark and I live in a very small town in Maine. I have had several motorcycles but recently picked up a 1978 CM185T. This bike was in pieces but turns over fine but unfortunately it was missing a few things so Im working to make a slightly modified scrambler/brat as the frame was...

    The proper method is not covered in the FSM, and the owners manual is long gone I'm sure. So.... Do I leave it on the kickstand to check oil levels? That's a lot of tilt, which will surely change the reading. Or do I somehow try to stand it up with one hand (or a friend more than likely) and...
  11. Project Logs
    I'm moving my build log over here from the intro thread I posted over there. The first post might be a bit long, but I'll attempt to keep follow up posts a bit shorter. I took the checklist from longdistancerider and merged my own into it, so I'll try to take note of what I do on each new...

    Greetings! I found this site after two weeks of reading everything I can about the above mentioned bike. Here's the story if you want it.... "I've got an old Motorcycle out in the shed if you want it." Said a friend of mine who is trying to downsize. "Of course!" I replied as nonchallantly...

    Well, title tells it. Previous owner allowed the battery to completely die, kick started it and rode it that way for an unknown length of time. Result, every light in the house is burned out, horn no longer working and there is a serious misfire under load (when riding) with a new AGM battery...

    I just replaced the clutch on my 78 CM185T. I had it in neutral the whole time, after replacing the clutch and adjusting the cable at both ends, I started it, shifted into gear and started riding, would shift anymore. the clutch disengages properly, there were and are no weird noises. the...

    So i've had this project bike for a bit now but can't get over this hill figuring out how to get the bike to fire. I have fuel flowing, she's kicking over but i'm not getting any spark from the plugs. I put in a new battery, cleaned the carb, made sure that's all in tact. Wiring: As far as...
  16. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hey hey! I recently replace my OEM carb with a cheap aftermarket Chinese carb. BIG MISTAKE! Now my bike runs like ****, especially at Honda specs. Of course now, I can't find an OEM carb for my bike worth my money. Most are in crap shape. Would a CM200 carb work on my 185? There seems...

    Hello All:: I'm wanting to connect the Sparck Moto single phase regulator to my CM185T. It came wired with the OEM type connector on the 4 "main wires" and a single black wire with a male bullet type connector. Where does the black connect on this install? I appreciate your help.

    So I removed the circular cover for the points from the left crankcase cover on my cm185t and broke the gasket on it. Now where can I get another one or do I even need one at all?
  19. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    I bought a running 1978 CM185t, it idled at the redline and ran rich and no amount of carb adjustment would fix it so i removed and cleaned the carburetor. After that I could not get the bike to star at all, it would sound hopeful at first and then the cylinders would flood badly. The carb also...
