  1. Hello! CB125 owner. Looking for a front brake cable that won't take 2 months to ship!

    I own a 1975 Honda CB125S and I have been rebuilding a lot of stuff on it with the help of some friends. I need to find a front brake cable. There are ones listed on eBay that look perfect, however since they are all located in Thailand it will take a long time to ship (October possibly!) I was...

  6. Go home CB100, you're drunk.

    Motorcycle Repair
    This question is sort of weird. So, when I ride my CB100 and sit back in the seat a little, I have high RPM issues and can't get over 30 MPH because it sputters to death. Why is it, when I sit all the way forward in the seat like I'm supposed to, does it function fine? I just found it a little...
  7. CB125S Dies at Idle

    I have a Honda 1980 CB125S that I picked up that was not running since the owner said it had not been run in years and the fuel tank/carb was varnished up. Problem I am having is that it only runs on choke. Or sometimes it will idle at No Choke, but as soon as you open the throttle a bit, it...
