    Technical Help Forum
    New to the forum so not sure the exact protocol on asking questions. Bought my first motorcycle, '81 CX500D, about three months ago. Ran great, for the first 6 rides except that it would cut off every once in awhile when idling at a light. Took the bike for a sunset ride and filled up the...

    Technical Help Forum
    Hey guys! Just took the CX500 out for a ride today and noticed that when I really got into it accelerating up a hill, the engine would pull fine until around 5500rpm and then it would bog down. Almost like it had a rev limiter. The bike runs great and has tons of power up until that point. I...
