I am looking for a condenser for a 68 cd175. The ones that I have found on ebay are listed for cd175, cb175, cl175, cb160 and several others. My cd is 6v and if I remember correctly these other bikes are 12v. Do these bikes all use the same condenser? Does anyone know of a source for parts for these bikes in the US. Any help is definitely appreciated. Thank you.

IF you are worried about the voltage rating, the Honda 125 singles (through 1980) were 6V, point ignition, and the condensers from them will work fine....I have even used a "standard" 12V system automotive condensor with no problems.....A capacitor is a "voltage storage" component and will/can only store based on the supplied voltage.....(Note that this is how I am given to understand the "workings" of the component,....It just works/ has worked for me......)
