Man, this thing has got some cool parts.
I mean, check out this air filter





and this slick internal throttle (even though it kills throttle return)








and, oh yeah.....







Too easy. She's actually quite quiet. Don't let the terrible cell phone vid fool you.



Put about 10 very illegal miles on her yesterday.
Runs pretty good considering it's on the old points and plug wires.
I got sent the wrong set of points, and I couldn't get the old plug wires disconnected from the coil.
Are they glued? Can I cut them off to install the new set?







yessir.

She's really sturdy, shifts find and the motor sounds strong.
Had her up to about 55 mph before I remembered the tires are 50 years old.
Feels like she's riding the clutch a bit, I'm going to pull that cover and clean out that whole bastard good.
Does the kicker need to be removed first?

Man, seeing you ride that thing is like a knife in the heart. What was i thinking selling mine? It's a really fun bike.

I pulled the kicker arm off the other thingy (spindle? I have no idea what it's called) but couldn't get that thing out. errrrr, hold on....





I got 11 off of 10, but couldn't get 10 out of the box.
Is there something I'm missing? Couldn't see any fasteners or anything that would be holding her in there.
This diagram makes it look like there's a snap ring on the other side that's only accessible once the cover is off.

It's been a half-century since I've seen the inside of that CA160 cover, but I seem to recall that the Part #10 of the kickstarter is a splined slide-fit on the tranny's kickstart shaft. It's probably rusted/corroded/stuck, I'd suggest spraying WD40 from the spline-side and finding some way to tap the #10 (along with the attached cover) off from the outside.

I'm sorry, it's been a while since I've done it. I don't remember how it came off well enough to say with any confidence. I'd hate to miss lead anyone.

I had one of those, just like it. When I joined the Air Force, my dog ate most of it, then my mom gave it away.
There should be a rubber plug on the end of #10, under that there will be a screw If I recall.

Dude !

She's a beut though. I get mine out often for vintage rides. I've had it up to 70mph but it gets pretty scary up there what with the marginal brakes, crappy suspension, and the motor is really spinning at that speed, but it will dust off a Royal Enfield :)[/QUOTE]

But you have some cool bikes to live for ! Of course I also understand that 70mph on 1 is like a lsr run on something else, so you can go totally adrenal at normal traffic speed !
Luck ,Ed

Beware the death wobble at that speed,damhik

I planned on just running the bike down the street last night, except when I got to the end I Just kept going.

This bike is sure growing on me. Clutch seems to be getting better everytime.



now can anyone shed some light on my coil to plug wire issue?

I'll do my best, but keep in mind that it's been a few years and my memory isn't has sharp as it once was (stupid concussions!)

my wires were toast and I just pulled them out, figuring there would be threaded spikes to re- attach the new wires ---but there wasn't. i think there might have been a thickish wire, but I believe it was just an empty socket. Long story short, there's a company ( guy? ) in Oregon ( ? ) who sales parts for these, and i bought a whole new coil and wires from him. Bolted right on. I also bought a new fangled rectifier from him, that is recommended.

Cool parts

I only worked on a 305 one time. The thing that stuck in my mind was the really cool eccentric used to adjust the points gap. No - loosen screw, tap, overshoot, push back, cuss some, try again. I loved that little eccentric that made it so easy to adjust the ONE set of contacts.
Nice score!

No, plug wires aren't removable. Such a cool ride, first real motorcycle I remember riding was in '66 when I was 8. One of three brothers I ran with got a Dream it was either a 250 or 305, it had a silver metal flake seat, and was painted clear over the original black with-are you ready?-silver glitter sprinkled into the wet paint and sprayed over decopage style. Terry held it up while I climbed on and told me "here's the gas this is the clutch the back brake is down by your right foot and you shift gears with this by stepping on the back part of the pedal when you won't go any faster. AND DON"T TOUCH THE FRONT BRAKE IT WILL KILL YOU!!!! Then he pointed me out into this big field ware the kids all rode and pushed me off I still remember how awsome I felt till I put the front wheel in a hole. fortunatly I just kind of tipped over and didn't get hurt I did learn to ride it eventually and the die was cast. I've had a couple of them over the years looks like I need another one.

i like that story quite a bit.


So I gotta buy a new coil just to replace the plug wires?
Guess that's going on the wait until it fails list.


Next priority is tires. Maybe next week?
at least the old ones hold air

It is possible to splice new plug wires on. You can either cut the wires leaving only an ich or so left and use a plug wireconnector or you can completely remove the old wires, drill into the coil a small way, and insert a copper nail and the new plug wire. Then just seal it up with some kind of silicone sealant.

Here's a better explanation:
