  2. Where Can I Find...
    I recent bought a '79 CX500C, and I love it! The only drawback is that I'm tall (6'8") and the two-tiered seat makes it a bit of a crunch to ride. But I like the two-tiered seat look rather than the flat seat look, so don't want to replace my seat (and the seat is in great condition). Has anyone...

    So yeah, I just bought a 1980 model CX500. Not Custom or Deluxe or anything, the original. I'm a bit confused with the documentation though. I find a lot of drawing and diagrams for the 78' model, and the 80-82' Custom and Deluxe, but nothing spesific for the 80' Standard. So what I would like...

    Hello, I have recently purchased a ‘79 CX500 that no longer has a centre stand. I want to get into the drum breaks but haven’t been able to find any suggestions on a suitable rear paddock stand as the drum offers that wonderful a-symmetry. Any advice or recommendations would be excellent and...

    (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...

    I have a 79’ cx500 that I restored last summer. Countless fixes later and it ran and rode like new! Until the other night when I stalled out on me and would not turn over again. I tried pop starting it while I coasted down the street at about 35-40 mph. Locked up the rear and didn’t even try to...

    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...
  15. 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...
