Looking for good city street/commute tires for my Honda CL100

I'm fixing up a 1972 Honda CL100 (K2) and looking for good safe tires to use on NYC streets. Not looking for original-look knobbies (no off road riding) but still hoping for tires that have a more vintage look without sacrificing too much safety. Front: 2.50-18; rear 3.00-17. Any advice on best type and good source much appreciated. Thanks!

Brand is not really important. Just go to any motorcycle shop and tell them you want road tires for city streets. They may have two or three tires to choose from. Pick what looks good and go with it.

I believe your bike takes a 250 x 18 tire size on the front and a 3.00 x 17 on the rear. Look at the sizing on the sidewall of the old tires.

Finding timing marks 1972 honda cl100


The flywheel cover will need to be removed from the right hand side of your crank case. You will probably need to remove the shift lever from the shift shaft too. This is accomplished by removing the bolt from the lever with a 10mm wrench and sliding the lever from the shaft. Next remove the #2 philips screws that attach the flywheel cover to the case. When you get the cover off you will be looking at the flywheel. On the upper edge of the crank case there should be a vee shaped notch in the casting. This should align with the line marked "F" stamped onto the flywheel when the points are just opening. There is also a "T" line stamped into the flywheel too and this the firing position when the timing is advanced mechanicaly with the engine running. This can be checked with a timing light at about 3000 rpm. I can send pictures if you want to email me.

After lots of work my 1972 Honda CL100 scrambler is up and running, however, I'm not convinced it's running to it's fullest capacity. Here's what I'm experiencing; at the high RPM end...


They are not a rocket ship, but I would expect closer to 50mph .
need good air filter element.
ignition advance springs can cause a problem, or the advance may be sticking.
need good battery, recheck point gap, timing and valve clearance.
check for exhaust blockage(see if it revs better without the muffler)

You have probably tried most of these, but there is not much else, they should rev sweetly right though the rev range

You are probably dealing with dirty,burnt,or shorting points. Try replacing the points located at the end of the crankshaft under the cover held on by two screws. You may have to install and reinstall the points several times before you can get the new points to work. Chances are the points in the machine are almost 40 years old. Also , Honda ignition systems run off the battery. In most Honda models if you do not have a good, charged battery , you will not get spark.

1972 honda cl100 Scrambler K2 will not accelerate it just bogs down when i twist the throttle, what would cause a problem like this?


Sounds like the jets are clogged in the carburetor. Try running some carburetor cleaner through it first. If that doesn't help then you will need to have the carburetor rebuilt. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Loud front end noise over low-speed city street bumps.


I have the same problem but others said that replacing the $25 sway bar bushings fixed the problem. This solution helped several owners so it's worth changing.

Problem locating correct street


Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.
