1981 honda C70 passport oil change

HI all. I just acquired my first 1981 C70 passport and was doing some general maintenance when something got me puzzled: I see oil when I remove the oil stick but I don't seem to be able to drain it when I remove the oil pan bolt!

After removing fully the bolt, only a cple drop came down. I looked inside with a flash light and can see a screw that brings down some sort of cylinder that holds a spring, when you unscrew it.

Being my first encounter with this type of moped, I thought I would seek your expert opinion about what to do.

thank you

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

It sounds as if you have removed the bolt for the cam chain tensioner. Look more underneath the motor for a bolt that goes straight up.

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

ah! Thx Mike. What is the proper setting for that tensioner the. Do i screw it all the way in or...?

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

I cannot say for sure. Seems like there is a locking nut which is loosened to allow you to turn a sort of set screw (probably a slotted screw head). I think you loosen the set screw to allow the internal spring to reset the tension against the cam chain. After that, snug down the set screw and tighten the lock nut. You may wish to do a google search of this procedure to be certain. Good luck.

Underbone MOTORCYCLE, numb nuts.

Hey pal, if you cannot find an online user guide and service manual for the worlds longest run production MOTORCYCLE, turn in your internet card.

It is a underbone 4 stroke Motorcycle... fyi, not a flipping moped.

I know now why i missed it: someone covered it up with some "paste". I wonder if they couldn't stop a leak or if the whole area is damaged. See pictures

Re: Underbone MOTORCYCLE, numb nuts.

Well, someone needs to take some "be nice pills": 1 in the morning, 1 in the evening until symptoms disappear.

I saw that video, and that's the only i found searching the web. Note that it's for a C70 super cub....and not knowing the difference with a C70 passport i ask here for people who know.

When I'm not sure, i ask: what a concept. and as far as I'm concerned , 50cc = moped.

Thank you for your contribution nonetheless.

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

... But its a passport.... its 70cc and four-stroke lol

notamoped

I have one, small displacement reliable motorcycle

Dont be afraid to hold it wide open for miles.

I do and it spits oil and makes weird noises but hasnt failed me yet

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

damn it! So...iam a dumb ass then! ;-) I saw some C90 that were 50cc, so I imagined that a c70 would be a 50cc as well. Thx for the update. Now I'll go read about these mopeds...i meant bike!

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

Yvan, sorry you were treated so harshly here. Yes, there are probably other forums which could give you better info on your machine. But I don't think you deserve to be insulted and called names when all you did was ask for some help.

John, while i have some good resources to link, you could make an effort on your choice of words! I had alrdy gotten the first manual you linked. Thx for the second.

Re: Learn to use google chump for your 4-stroke Motorcycle needs,

had found that one too since my first post....

What's Google??

Re: Learn to use google chump for your 4-stroke Motorcycle needs,

Stop being a hippy. Change you oil and fix your MOTOCYCLE. What is Google? You, Sir are a troll.

www.google.com ... search engine

the trick is to search by 3 or 4 likely keywords at a time

"Honda c70 manual" "Honda 1981 service manual", for example.

The same for searching youtube which has a variety of instructional videos.

One of those links has an extensive list of links .

Kiddies, do your own homework, first.

You haven't done much ready of this site have you . This pretty tame compared to some . ;)

Re: 1981 honda C70 passport oil change

I also own a Passport. Super dependable, comfortable ride. Love it.

Take it for a 10-15 minute ride before attempting to change the oil. The increase in temperature will lower the viscosity of the oil, making it easier to remove.

As it's the first time you've changed the oil, you might consider changing it a 2nd time in a week or so - this will allow whatever gunk might not have been getting reached before the 1st change a chance to get removed from the system. (You'll have plenty of oil leftover and the whole process takes 10 minutes.)

I havent had mine out yet this year. I should put a new front tire on it, its 10 years old. I went one tooth larger on the front sprocket and get a steady 48mph. Yea they can take WOT for long stretches with no worries.
