    I'm new 'round here, but I just picked up an '80 CX500D, and am loving it so far. Everything's great, other than a strange fueling issue that has me stumped. I did a ton of poking around/searching here & elsewhere, and haven't found a similar issue. I'm able to ride for ~30-40 mins...

    Hi there! I have a great offer for whoever wishes to pick it up from the Gold Coast. I picked up a beat up CX500 which was missing a lot of parts in late 2014 and started a project of rebuilding and modifying it complete. During the couple years I visited this website regularly and slowly...
  4. Custom How To
    I've spent the past couple days doing a ton of research about the wiring on my '82 GL500. I've decided to make a custom wiring harness mostly from scratch, as I plan to relocate/delete a lot of components for a cafe build. My main goal is to simplify the harness, and keep the bare necessities...

    Hey all! Doing a seat hoop/loop on my CX (along with a custom seat build) and I'm curious on a few things: 1. I'd like to make sure I have room for a passenger -- any suggestions for the minimum seat size I should be considering to allow ample room for a passenger? I realize everyone is a...

    Let me start by saying I have done some looking around beforehand and as far as I know I do not have a 80+ ignition (previous owner says it used to work just fine before it got torn down) My current issue is that every time I turn the key to Park it blows the main fuse. I have tried unplugging...

    As I have mentioned in a previous post, I got a bike for cheap that has been sitting for a couple decades. I finally get around to ordering a new set of cheap levers to get it running again and I encounter the outcome of the master cylinder reservoir not having a cap on it for forever, and the...

    Hello, I'll attempt to keep this as brief as possible. It seems to be a weird one however. I haven't found anything similar on the forum. What happened: I was riding home from a friends yesterday when the bike suddenly died during acceleration after a red stop. I waited about two minutes...

    So I tried cleaning my tank my self with vinegar and bb's. I though it went okay at 1st, and then things got worse than before. This is my daily driver for now and I wanted it running right, it was cutting a little bit, so I changed the plugs, needed to fix the throttle cable, which I did, but...

    I have a project bike, it was running well but started to overheat after putting a new thermostat in. I also took off the mufflers so the bike would be louder. (Yes I realize now, I shouldn’t have done that.) Well it was running for a bit like this. Just an hour at most. The bike started to...

    Hello, I'm working on a 1982 CX500 I picked up a couple months ago. It was running when I got it but then didn't run after a month of not working on it. While diagnosing the issue, I've been turning the engine with no problems. It started with starting fluid and then sputtered and died since it...

    Thinking of selling my '81 CX500 'Cafe Project' bike. I bought it a little over 2 years ago with the intent of doing a custom/cafe build on it. However, house projects and covid 2020 put a huge dent in my plans and I feel I may never get around to starting the project, let along finishing it...

    Hello- it pains me to write this as it was such clumsy thing to do. After charging my battery, I was putting it back on, I accidentally touched the positive line to the frame of the bike before grounding it. (Yeah, I know) The bike worked perfectly fine prior to this happening. Now, nothing...

    Hey guys, 1979 CX 500 here. Got it a few years ago and got it running as a proof of concept. Ran great back then with all stock parts. Have now done a great deal to it - pods vs airbox, mUnit Blue vs analog electrical, straight pipe with baffle out of H box vs cones. I’ve cleaned the carbs...

    Happy 2021 friends. Even though 2020 was tough, I learned a lot about taking care of my bike. Thanks for your help. I am just trying to fine tune those carbs and get that idle smooth and perfect. Any recommendations on gauges? I am reading about the procedure. Thanks! Jeff
