Doctor Funk, or, the strangest CT90 you've ever seen
« Reply #20 on: Jun 30, 2017, 12:01:52 »
Ok so update on this thing. I threw a Shinko Golden Boy and new tube on the rear, got the carb to stop leaking fuel and slowed the leak on the petcock enough to where a rag will handle it until new rubber comes in for the petcock.

All set to take it for a shakedown this AM. This bike definitely has a manual clutch installed from one of the other models (S90, etc) as the CT90 came only with an automatic clutch.

I can shift into gear as normal, but the clutch is acting funky. It takes a lot of gas to get it moving, and even when I'm going 10-15 mph (in first) it will stall out when I fully release the clutch lever. Looks like I'll be pulling that side cover off later and investigating. 

Edit: I got it to drop into gear and was able to release the clutch. The gearing is funky on this thing, I thought I was in first but I had to really play the clutch and go about 20 mph until it would go and not stall.

Maybe this thing has the dual range transmission installed?

Ok, that makes sense. Dual range FTW!!

How would you get a tan if you wear sun screen?

What's going on with the circular saw blade mounted on a side grinder?

The entire picture is a "what not to do". We were trolling a fb welding page when we took that picture.
