Hey fellow 125 riders! I’m done with my 77 CT125 and was hoping to ask of some info. If I’m not welcome here, let me know as it’s not a TL 😉

I picked up this neglected CT last year for $100. Frozen motor and all. Missing just about everything but the VIN was clean! Brought it home and rebuilt the motor and got it running. Wired it up following a TL125 diagram. Removing all the unused wiring. Just the ignition system was used. Now, currently still running points but would love to know if anyone has done a CDI swap? I had a vintage XR80 a few years back and swapped over a newer gen XR’s CDI system and it was simply fantastic. I ride this bike weekly up service roads and deep into the woods and it’s the last thing I’d like to upgrade. The points work fine, but would prefer CDI. 

any tips? Being the CT was mainly sold in Australia and only one year here in the US I found it fitting to name her Sheila!

Guday Sheila!

Thought I may have been able to help but looking at your picture maybe not.

I thought you were talking about the little bike that the Austrailian postal service used but think they were 90's or 110's.

Having said that, the motor on your bike looks like a standard split head Honda unit so maybe you could swap parts off an XL125R which were CDI the only problem would be getting hold of the parts which would be expensive and if your points system is set up properly not really worth the effort. XL185 is another option but again expensive for the little gain.

Anyway good luck.
