How do you replace a kick start shaft on a Honda CT90?
To replace the kickstart shaft on a CT90 the entire engine must be disassembled and crankcase split in order to gain access to it, it can be a difficult job and will require some mechanical knowledge and a manual. it is quite expensive as all gaskets have to be replaced and the whole engine has to be reassembled after wards. so unless you are after a perfect rebuild or are going to be performing some bottom end or gearbox work on the engine it is not really worth it unless you willing to pay the cost. otherwise you can just simply roll start it.

Answer \n. \nCall your local drive shaft shop and ask them. They would have a better idea and your question would be answered sooner.
Answer . Once you have the car off of the ground safely. Remove your tire, brakes, and rotor. Now you have to unbolt the balljoint, and tie rod if necesary, and the hub. Y…our whole strut assy should be able to be pushed out of the way and held in place with a bungee cord. The cv shaft can be yanked on to pull it out but sometimes you need to pry it out once it is out size it up to your new one. If it matches just push the new one hard into place and bolt everything tightly as it was and your done.

Mobil 20w50 Synthetic for best heat reduction on the Honda CT90. 1.9 Pints
no, Honda VTR 1000 (fire-storm / superhawk) is electronic start only, or jump start, no kick start on it
The CT90 front forks take 135 ml after all excess oil has been pumped out. After disassembly add an extra 5ml
The Honda Spree/Elite 50 Forum has a great page on this and on many other Spree-related articles. Here's the link for the how-to article: http://www.hondaspree.net/phpBB2/v…iewtopic.php?t=4547 Of course, that involves first finding a kick start kit for sale, which is something I'm still working on for my '85. Good luck, and happy riding!
Put the choke in the full choke position.. Hold the compression release in, twist the throttle fully open and kick the kick starter 8 times.. move the choke to the half chok…e position and kick the kick starter 2 times with the throttle closed. move the kick starter so that you are at the compression point at the bottom of the kick starter stroke and then use the compression release to move the kick starter just past the bottom (full compression) position. kick the kick starter from the top all the way through the compression stroke.. This will usually start the bike in 1 to 2 kicks,. Note: using this method, you do not have to "stand" on the kick starter. If you have enough momentum from the top of the kick stroke, you will have a very easy time of it.
are you talking about the complete cv joint and axle? my suggestion would be go to a local auto parts store and purchase a Haynes repair manual for your specific make and mode…l. it will show you step by step instructions on how to do it with pictures. im not sure your make and model but if it is a Honda newer than 2001, there are special tools needed so you don't break the boots on the shaft and the control arms and fork. unless you have a haynes repair manual, i would take that to a local certified Honda shop. if your car is a Honda older than 2000 it should all be the same as follows: you will need a few tools to make your life a lot easier. first you need a 32mm six point socket. probably a boot fork. you will need the following sockets and or wrenches: 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 17mm and 19mm. all these tools can be rented at oreilly's auto, advance auto, autozone, and pepboys. first you have to jack the car and remove the wheel with a 19mm. keep the key in the ignition so the wheel hub can turn freely. unbolt the two or three 14mm nuts on the top of the wheel hub under the hood. use a 17mm socket on one side and a 17mm wrench on the other to loosen the bolt on the very bottom of the fork, right below the disc brake. use a 32mm socket to loosen the big nut on the end of the control arm. you cant miss it. its right in the center of the brake disc. u may need someone to hold the brakes down to keep it from turning. use either a 14mm or 17 mm socket depending on your make and model to loosen the bolts at the top of the fork. there will be one other 17mm bolt towards the back side of the fork that is connected to another axle looking thing with an accordion looking boot on it. that is the steering. loosen that one also. this is where it becomes fun. if you have a boot fork this part is easy. if not you will have a lot of pounding to do. on all the bolts you just loosened, pry or pound off the fork from the little boot. you may be able to use a large screw driver or a prybar. they will eventually break free. once you get all three you can remove the whole front assembly. and the axle should slide free from the control arm. it should still be connected to the transmission but it may slide right out. if you are replacing the whole thing and it wont easily come off the transmission just use a knife or screwdriver to break the boot and the axle will come right out. then use a prybar or large screwdriver to pry off the end of the axle that connected it to the transmission. the new one should just pop right in with a little force and rebolt everything up and you are ready to go. *notice - whenever you work on the suspension, you should always get an alignment. this will save you a lot of money on tires.

Are the engines on a 1986 Honda Cr 500 compatible with a 1992 Honda Cr 500 I'm trying to replace the housing where the kick start has cracked it?
you can use a 92 cover but you will need to modify a few components to make it work. the plumbing is a little different and the brake pedal needs to be tweaked a bit and a few… of the bolts are different.
You need a totally different left engine cover assembly with the kick start componenets. Easier just to get a whole moteor with the kick start, which they starting using in 80… or 81....good luck You do not need a different cover. Actually you can not use a cover from an 81 express on your 80 or older express. It wont fit. 81 was the first year of the kick start and the transmission case is completely different. Anyway you can convert yours to kick start but it requires quite a bit of work. Involves taking the side cover off removing some parts replacing a spring with the correct washers and rebending another spring in a different direction.
The 400ex has both an electric start and a kick start
In Honda ATVs
just kick it it is usally in the onwers manual
try punch start first...
The Honda CT90 was manufactured from 1966 through 1979. Since it is now a collector's item, you might try looking at classifieds or checking for members of hobby clubs who wi…sh to sell.
