Motorcycle Repair/Condenser Placement on 305's


Is there a better/more convenient location to mount the condenser on the 305 models?

I guess you are asking about the condenser on a Dream, as the other ones are just under the fuel tank on the coil bracket.

It isn't pretty, but I have seen them mounted on one of the camchain tensioner mounting bolts. Snip the wires to the old one and wire in a new one.

Need help with vintage Hondas from the 1960s? I am an expert with 250-305cc bikes in particular and most all of the other pre-91 models, in general. I do NOT claim to have a great deal of experience on Gold Wings, Cruisers, ATC/ATVs and dirt bikes.


I have owned/ridden/maintained Honda motorcycles for 35 years. I have written five books on Honda repairs and collecting. I was a service manager for two Honda shops back in the 1980s.
