    They're just the standard size, 3.5 x 10 Perellis.

    I just purchased a 1987 Honda Elite CH150 with 2500 miles. Very clean and rode great. The gas was sitting for a while so I topped it off and added seafoam. I was riding all day on Saturday and it was running perfect. I went to start it on Sunday and it didnt start at all. I put a little gas into the carb and it would start up and then die almost instantly. Is there anything that you guys suggest I should do to it? I am not the most motor oriented dude but I know some stuff and am willing to experiment as well. Thank you to all who respond to this. The advice is much appreciated!!

    Most likely your slow jet is clogged. I recommend you remove and clean your carb, running a small strand of copper wire through the slow jet. Unscrew the bottom of the fuel tank and replace the filter. I have been through this with a CH125 but mine sat for 17 years and I had to clean out the fuel tank and replace a few items.

    Sometimes you need a new gas cap if it is the vented kind. Do you plan to leave the coachwork off?

    So??? I've gotta know... how'd it all come together brycekauai?! :)
    I've come to restoring my old '87 now and found this thread.... thanks for documenting your journey so well, very exciting and inspirational! But now we gotta know if you left her all a skelter.... or if you added anything else. Still running good? :)
