I have had this bike for about 6 years now, got it pretty much in pieces and "restored" it with the help of my then neighbor. 

The CT was purchased in California and was with me while we lived there, but brought it to Asheville, NC when we moved here 3 years ago. Oddly enough, since we moved, she has been in the garage mostly untouched. This past weekend, I brought her out, and decided to give her a wash, and get to working on her again. 

She was running before I parked it, but now needs the carbs completely cleaned out, cracked fuel lines replaced and some gaskets replaced. Anyone know the fuel line size? 

Since it has been sitting for a while, I can't quite remember all the work done, but it has a 21" front wheel, and is mostly all original. I lost the heatshield emblem a while back probably from the vibrations. 

Side note: If Devin is still here, you may remember me. I sold you 3 CT's and 1 DT or XT in Los Angeles. They were all parts bikes. Hope you were able to get them running!

Dimensions for pipes and tubes are often given in the original parts manuals, although this information is not always transferred over to the online parts lists on CMSNL, Partzilla etc. Have a look in the Tech Library (see toolbar above) and see if there is an original parts manual for your bike and the measurements should be in the relevant section there.
