Reviving a NEGLECTED 190cc Honda Trail 70

I built this resto mod Honda CT70 with a Zongshen 190cc 5 speed engine a few years ago, rode it all the way from North Carolina to West Virginia, and on the way home, it died and wouldn't restart. The Honda mini bike has been abandoned since then, about a year ago, collecting dust, cobwebs, and rust. In today's episode of CarsandCameras, we get this old Honda Trail 70 running and riding again!

Thanks for Watching!

    What if you just had a pipe T joint with the pipe under it in the I section stuffed with a carbon felt all the way to the top. So that the engine sucks air through the carbon felt wick in the top of the pipe T joint. And that just replaces the carburetor and you have a throttle that controls the flow of a fuel air mix. I guess steel wool could act as a spark arrestor.

Look up common problems on a 190cc or ooracing tube videos 👍👌✌️🏍️💯

    if you did not know you can bypass the honda monkey's rev limiter, and it's easy to do, the blue and white cord next to the battery. cut it off and insert a suitably sized resistor or buy an adjustable resistor box where is knob,and honda Monkey's standard exhaust has 3 chokes..first is right at the beginning of the curve, the second is at the end of the curve, and the third is the end at the beginning of the whistle,,,Drill of those chokes if you want more power.or buy Tuned pipe in store...
