1977 CT90 Woes...

Okay... I know there are other forums, but this place is my home.

1977 that I'm trying to revive for a friend. New battery, new kill switch and yes new rubber all around. ( I got ahead of myself ).

No Electrical right now and so I'm trying to sort things. Two specific questions till I move on to more exciting things:

What fuse is the exact correct one to use next to the battery? I know it's a 6V system and the Wiring diagram reads 15Amp. but whats the correct voltage for that 15Amp. I've had a 7Amp/250volt in there (before I got it) and it's blown now.
I'm looking for the Idiots (yeah that's me) answer to the question:
"use the ____ V 15amp fuse"


I've heard that the RADIO SHACK 276-1185 rectifier is this the replacement for the 1977- Is there a wiring diagram that shows where every thing goes on this?

I've been wanting to get this done for too long and I only get one hour a week at a buddy's place to get to it. All help appreciated.

Wow 1977 is the rare 125cc version! If the schematic calls for 15 amp it should be 15 amp and at least the voltage in the circuit. The voltage is speced for arc over potential (so don't use a 125V in a 250V circuit).

Here's the thread on the Radioshack rectifier;

There's lots of info here;

Actually the links above are correct. But to clarify in 1977 Honda made a CT125 that Randy mentions (only year too), PLUS a CT90. I owned a 1977 CT90 and have seen the 125; it looks more like a dual sport cycle (no step-thru frame).

My mistake. I thought the 125 was the only one that year as I've never seen a 77 for sale...

I just now used my own link and discovered the same info. There was a CT90 in 1977 and the special 125.

Thanks those links make the Rectifier deal easy to figure:

I'm might be being obtuse on the first question, I know it's a 15amp... what are the volts rating

I'm looking for the Idiots (yeah that's me) answer to the question:

"use the ____ V 15amp fuse"
automotive are 32V but I'm having no love at all finding a short 15Amp for it. Thoughts of switching to a in line blade fuse is next.
