  1. My CL100 does the same thing.
  2. Tank was creamed two years ago but I'll check.
  3. HERE! Happened to me with my old puddle-jumper.
  4. Free mounting would be great! Local shops charge $20. per tire to mount tires, theirs or yours. Even more if you drop the bike off.
  5. Where do you guys normally buy tires? Locally or online and where? Thanks!
  6. Where did you get float bowl? It is the float. One side of the float filled with gasoline and wouldn't "float" so the bowl over fills with gas and runs out the overflow. The float is brass, the oxide from the brass is green. The Sta-Bil I used is red. My question is what would corrode the brass float?
  7. Tried to ride it a little yesterday, the float (new) was corroded to the point that there was three tiny pinholes. Tried to solder them up, no luck. Does the alcohol in the fuel cause this green type of corrosion?
  8. Hey y'all, Just got my CL100 out of the garage where she has been hibernating all winter. Charged the battery and after a few kicks fired normally but no idle (without full choke). Pulled the carb bowl off and green gook covered everything and just as expected, idle jet plugged. Before I put her away in October I added the recommended amount of Sta-Bil to the (topped off) fuel thinking this would keep everything fresh. What do I use/do to prevent this from happening?
  9. Heh, ordered 3.50-17 rear and 2.75-18 front no more than 10 minutes before your post. I'll post the results when I get the tires mounted. Thanks for the replies!
  10. Hello Need new skins for my puddle-jumper, 1972 CL100. Original sizes are 2.50-18 Front 3.00-17 rear Would like to buy Cheng Shin C-186's Could I run 2.75-18 Front And 3.50-17 Rear? 75% street use, 25% dirt. Suggestions/comments?
  11. Perfect. Yes, for a minute or two, then dies. Very difficult to re-start Yes It's weird. I have a new battery (6V) and get almost 10V at the battery when the bike is running. Blinkers are almost too fast at highway speeds.
  12. Just like the subject says. Runs OK (about 60mph) without the headlight on, turn it on and barely reaches 50. Engine misses and misfires, ease off the throttle and smooths out about 45mph. Also won't idle for over 1 minute without stalling, then very difficult re-starting. Points set at .014", gets plenty of fuel, not flooding. Coil? Points? Condensor? Thinking of the "shotgun approach" and replacing all three... But these parts are pricey!!
  13. The OEM ignition switch is a one wire in-one wire out single pole/single throw switch. I used a simple toggle switch for awhile.
  14. Yeh, I've bought a bunch of parts off eBay cheap. These little bikes are cheap to ride, fun and can run fast enough to keep up with traffic.
  15. Been there Just bought a 72 CL100 that the wiring was butchered. Ordered a replacement harness from an eBay vendor in Vietnam. Colors didn't match the OEM harness and several of the connectors located in the headlight bucket were uninsulated. I traced down all the circuits, taped the connectors and now it works fine. The 100's/125's have to have a battery to run. You must have a coil and condensor that are located under the gas tank. A rectifier to convert the AC current the alternator produces to DC current that allow the engine to run and lights to burn. I tested my engine by using a battery charger connected to the black wire on the coil (IIRC). If I were to do this again, and what I would suggest to you is find a used wiring harness either from a bike scrapyard or eBay, then it's simply a matter of connecting the same colored wires. The bikes that have the same harness are; CB100K2 CL100K2 CL100S2 CL100S3 CL125S
