    Okay... I know there are other forums, but this place is my home. :lol3

    1977 that I'm trying to revive for a friend. New battery, new kill switch and yes new rubber all around. ( I got ahead of myself ).

    No Electrical right now and so I'm trying to sort things. Two specific questions till I move on to more exciting things:

    What fuse is the exact correct one to use next to the battery? I know it's a 6V system and the Wiring diagram reads 15Amp. but whats the correct voltage for that 15Amp. I've had a 7Amp/250volt in there (before I got it) and it's blown now.
    I'm looking for the Idiots (yeah that's me) answer to the question:
    "use the ____ V 15amp fuse"


    I've heard that the RADIO SHACK 276-1185 rectifier is this the replacement for the 1977- Is there a wiring diagram that shows where every thing goes on this?

    I've been wanting to get this done for too long and I only get one hour a week at a buddy's place to get to it. All help appreciated.

    Actually the links above are correct. But to clarify in 1977 Honda made a CT125 that Randy mentions (only year too), PLUS a CT90. I owned a 1977 CT90 and have seen the 125; it looks more like a dual sport cycle (no step-thru frame).

    My mistake. I thought the 125 was the only one that year as I've never seen a 77 for sale...

    I just now used my own link and discovered the same info. There was a CT90 in 1977 and the special 125.

    Thanks those links make the Rectifier deal easy to figure:

    I'm might be being obtuse on the first question, I know it's a 15amp... what are the volts rating

    I'm looking for the Idiots (yeah that's me) answer to the question:

    "use the ____ V 15amp fuse"
    automotive are 32V but I'm having no love at all finding a short 15Amp for it. Thoughts of switching to a in line blade fuse is next.
