Hi guys. Name is Steve. First post.
I have an 81 Honda gl500 that now won't start.
I took off my old carb and installed two new performance carbs from Murray's. My petcock has (what I believe is) a vacuum hose that ran to my right carb. I don't see the same brass connector on either of the new...
Backstory: I bought my 79 cx500c last fall from a guy who couldn't ride anymore (health issues) and he says he always stored it with stabil in the gas and ran the carbs dry. When I test drove it, it had all the power and no spits and sputtering or anything. I brought it home and ran multiple...
(first post, so first I gotta say I'm glad there's a community for this stuff and thanks in advance)
I got this bike a few months ago, was able to get it running and for the first month it was great. Then I had a situation where one of the floats got stuck and it started leaking gas from the...
Looking for the dreaded emulsion tube/nozzle Honda part #16166-415-003, destroyed in removal.
Does anyone have one?
Are there suitable replacements from a similar carb?
I’ve checked with Sudco and it’s a Honda part only.
Any help or ribbing will be greatly appreciated!
The left cylinder won't fire up.
Thanks in advance!!! Your insights are much appreciated.

Hey guys me again, I finally got past the last major hold ups around my CX (like the majorly damaged water pump mechanical seal, don't know why I thought it was still OK to run) but she still wont run except on ether.
She kicks once or twice if I let it sit for a little while but it seems like...
I have a problem with my 82 GL500 which just started all of sudden today. So the bike starts fine and idles as normal, but when I get to 4th gear and around 4k to 5k rpm the power just falls off. If I drop down to 3rd gear or lower and open the throttle, there is no loss of power as rpm...
I'm trying to get a 1980 CX running that has been sitting for a number of years without being started. I know the carbs need a nice cleaning and based on the posts here, I went ahead and ordered a copy of Larry's book to guide me through that process.
Now, I'm fairly comfortable with...
I've been trying to find a post on this specifically but I cant find any post of people with this issue that isn't a somewhat simple fix of tapping on the carb or adjusting a float. Not that I think i'm the first person to have this issue but I cant seem to find any posts.

When I bought my new bike I also got a second bike that was torn down (not the entire bike). The carbs were all torn apart sitting in a box (that had a bunch of holes). .
Is there a parts guide or something that I can use to verify I have all...
Have a project 1980 CX500 Custom I've been working on for a couple months now and trying to get it running properly. As of now it starts with the choke on and idles. As soon as I accelerate it dies. I have also seen some white smoke being spit out of the carbs. Ive been messing...
I have no experience with carburators, none, so I thought getting a rebuild kit would be a good first try at working on them, I thought I was doing everything right but obviously I was wrong, I would like to get a set of Murrays Carbs later on but I do not currently have the funds for that...
Is it possible to use the carb intakes from the 1983 GL650 on my 1982 GL500? Or does anyone have some intakes and carbs for sale for the 1982 GL500, I would even be willing to repair / rebuild a ripped set if they were cheap enough. I have a drivers backrest / sissy bar in like new...
I purchased these carbs last year and only was able to get as far as installing the intake manifolds on the engine before I was transferred at work through 3 different states. Now I am living in an apartment in NC without the time or space to continue my project so I have...
I own a 1981 honda cx500 deluxe and im trying to clean my carbs. i have bought the carb book and the cleaner and all but once i remove the carbs out of the bike i saw that there was two nipples where gas was flowing out when i tilt the carbs one in each side, i dont remember...
I have been stuck on this problem for a week now and have found absolutely nothing that is improving the issue. I cannot get my bike to run properly at all

Hi there guys!
I have put together almost everything on my bike only to have it running poorly :( the right side is fine but the left side has a lazy idle and backfires/pops when the throttle is applied. SO another disassembly has happened, woo! My own fault for not checking everything over...
