i just picked up a honda CL100 and a CL125 motor for it. sounds like a wierd thing but i wanted to find some "hot rod" parts for it....piston? valves? carb? i would love to find a nice piston and do a little head work and mod the carb and have a fun little bike. something to make it a little faster. nothing out of control....stock is only about 12hp. mirrors and bars seem easy to find but what about rear foot sets? cant find them. and poss a full fairing. maybe some hot wire sets and plug. any leads on performace honda singles would help.
im new to the cafe thing and any help would be great
thanks

Aside from some of the links above, you can google megacycle cams, webcam cams, powroll, XRs Only, KN Filters, wiseco pistons. And there are often some big bore kits available on ebay...

No the XR is a different motor, but I believe XR's only sells an exhaust kit that fits the CB-CL100/125 engine, as well as some cool shit that might give you some ideas...
And I think they'll work on the CB engines.

When you increase the bore, you increase the compression, so there are two improvements, more displacement and higher compression. Add a bigger carb and exhaust for more air/fuel flow, and pretty soon you're talking...what, one, maybe two more horsepower..but that's still about a 10-15 % increase from stock....
I have a CB125 that had been put into "storage" in various basements and garages for about 20 years. When I finally got it, I could stand on the kickstarter with the spark plug out. After some basic maintenance and lots of WD40, I had it running. 140 psi warm static compression. Those fricken engines rock.

Pro-flo has some, as well as webco, i think. Or ebay...
I've seen whole kits, carb, cable and throttle, so you don't have to worry about matching up cable ends. Also I think you could get a carb from enginesonly.com or xrsonly.com
