It's a very regal color. When I'm on it I feel like a King who's riding his royal throne. To magnify this experience I've considering upholstering my seat in red velvet and donning a matching robe.

Watch out, if your cape gets too long it can catch in your chain.

I appreciate your concern. Best I employ a servant to follow along with me to prevent such embarrassments.

I pictured a guy on like a Trail 70 riding along side just to hold up the robe and I lol'd.

Might take two guys on ct70s, one on each side to support your royal regalness.

These bikes are know to run lean, bumping up the slow jets helps it start easier. a lot of us have done it, once you get it running you may need to play with the mains. slow jet #65 99103-mg3-0650,$12.22. slow jet #68 99103-mg3-0680,$11.07. pulse generator #30300-mk2-010, $44.52. module,ign #30410-mg2-892,$114.90. got all from honda dealer, if you have any trouble let me know.

I see on their page they also have an item N424-74C. This looks like it might be the right item, but only comes in sizes 35-52. I could drill them out (which would entail getting my hands on a 61-80 wire gauge drill set that I don't currently own, although I should!)

But there must be a better way. Do I remember there was another vendor for this stuff?

Thanks,
Christian

I added a link in my signature for my other project, the Hondasuki KLNX250R. I did a whole build thread in one post!

May as well have a third to ride ahead and carry a horn to properly announce my arrival.

Yeah, then your next worry is keeping up with those high powered tail machines.

Last year I had a similar problem with my XL600. I was told to check the coil. I just needed to buy a new coil, only $16-17. I hope your bike back on the road soon.

OK, speaking of coils... Can someone educate me on what is probably the very simple task of properly removing the spark plug boot from the coil wire and putting it onto the wire of a new coil?

I've got a new coil I'd like to install, and it has the high voltage output wire, but no boot, so I guess I'll re-use the one I've got. But the boot definitely does not come off easily.

Cheers,
Christian

It threads into the end of the wire. It looks like a wood screw inside the cap.
