    2 bolts in each half, 4 in total. A humongous ordeal indeed.

    Unlike a normal chain guard, it's actually designed to be removed when servicing the chain

    Lets hope honda presents the CT125 on Eicma in italy this year. So we can hope for a EU launch...

    Last year they showed the 125cc X-Line :bluduh

    Stopped by my dealer. They mentioned something about a commercial for the CT125 on the Honda dealer intranet that was recently released. I asked if it was the one where the guy is talking during a photo shoot and speaking Japanese but they said it was an actual commercial in English. They usually don't do that if its not coming to the US. So they seem convinced that as soon as they have all the T's crossed and I's dotted they will formally announce a US release. They agreed after the Tokyo Motor Show or the LA Motorcycle Show seems probable!

    So today they filled out a work sheet and took my CC number and put it in a file. As soon as its formally announced they will run the deposit amount. Reason for the urgency is I am gone for most of next month so this keeps me in the #1 spot if they announce it while I am away. If for some reason they never actually announce it or come out saying its not coming to the US they will shred that work sheet. So not a real deposit but it will be as soon as its formally announced whether I am there or not!

    I remember a commercial for the CB1100 with a biplane. I thought it was a great commercial. I even tried to download the song. That commercial was on the web years before the CB1100 came to North America!

    I'll bet the aftermarket will have something to say about it.:-)

    No those were basically the Honda CT125 farm bikes also sold in Australia and New Zealand. They have vertical cylindered like the 1970's CB/CL/SL/TL/XL 125cc models. They had dropped the TL's wide ratio transmission into these engines.

    I believe they were like 3.3:1 first gear with a wide 5 speed spread and first was really low, if it's anywhere similar to the 74 TL125 I rode. They sold very limited numbers in the US. Our Honda dealer's sales guy owns one and I see it not often at their dealership.

    Having taken off the clutch cover on Monkey and SuperCub, you'll need to change the crank too, switch from auto<->manual, the auto clutch is more complicated then manual. It'll be cheaper/easier to find a wreck Grom and engine swap if you want a manual.
