    I’ve been searching around for a copy of the 1981 twinstar manual so that I could diagnose some issues on the bike. Details posted below. Does anyone out there feel generous enough to lend a hand? https://www.hondatwins.net/threads/trouble-with-startup-81’-cm200t.137746/#post-1147194
  2. Fuel Supply and Carburation
    Hello all, i’m working on my first motorcycle, a 1981 CM200T (12volt) to be exact. It has been a task to start the bike since I bought it a few months ago. I’m finally at the point where I have what I need to start the bike, and nothing happens. The kickstart turns the engine, but won’t start...

    The speedo on my 81 C200t was working great, then intermittently, then freaking out so hard the needle break itself. The odometer part works fine still but I'd really like to know about how fast I'm going. My question is this; do any of the other CM series speedos fit and and work correctly...

    Hey Everyone, Pretty sure this is something I have done when I did the engine rebuild, involving the kickstart spring. When I run the electric start, the kickstart lever just kinda... falls backwards. I can lift it back to the upright position, you can hear the ratchet mechanism, and it can...

    Howdy. I'm from Austin, Texas... new to this forum, new to motorcycles, and new to restoring two oldies. I just got handed a 1975 CB125s and a 1981 CM200t and I'm thrilled. 25 plus years ago my dad bought these for my mom (and himself) for her 50th birthday (at her request). She thought it...

    Hi, Im trying to get my 1980 twinstar up and running again but have hit a road block. I recently replaced the old cylinder head (which had a stripped spark plug port) with another used but unstripped cylinder head. Being the scrub that I am, at the last timing step I dropped a bolt down the cam...

    Recently acquired a 1981 CM200T with 2,600mi that has sat in indoor storage and hadn’t been started since 1989. Initially the bike would not turn over, but after a few days of soaking the cylinders/top end in penetrating oil she freed up. Next steps included: • Replaced both plugs (NGK...

    I have a 1980 cm200t and it's my first bike. The bike would not go into 3rd or 4th. I opened up the side and took the clutch and oil pump/filter out to reveal the shift plate stop, and the shift stopper and realized the shift drum stopper was coming off the track when shifting. Replaced the...

    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...

    My new, and ancient, 1980 Twinstar is in remarkably good condition, but I read in another thread here that the rear suspension swing arm should be greased, and to do that one removes the zerk fitting (the sort that fits a grease gun), cleans out any hardened grease, replace fitting and apply the...
  14. Project Logs
    Hello friends. I wanted to share my first project close to the end. A little background history: My mechanic friend told me that some years ago he had sold one of these bikes to a friend, and he sold it back because he did not use the bike. I wish I had a picture of it before the work, but...

    Okay so the problem is that neither of the front turn signals will light up at all. Previously both worked fine and flashed properly. The rear come on but do not flash. I have unplugged both and plugged them both in and one did flash for a moment, until the flasher wound up and clicked...

    Hey all! I recently replaced the clutch on my CM200T (1981, USA) engine and the kick start lever will not return. I removed the case, pulled out the whole shaft and reassembled it according to the CM185's service manual (don't currently have a CM200 service manual) and it still refuses to...

    A few months ago I got my first motorcycle, a 1980 CM200T. It ran fine for a little while, then one morning when I got it running, it started leaking oil, fairly heavily, from the left crankcase cover. I figured the gasket blew and all I needed to do was replace it, but after doing that it was...
