    Hi! I recently bought a Honda CX500C, 1981, and I have been working on getting it started. After fixing the starter clutch, the bike ran fine, and I have been taking it for a few rides lately. But during the last 2 rides, I started noticing pops from the exhaust while rolling, holding in the...

    I've got a GL700 and David Silver Spares have H boxes available for the GL500. Has anyone fitted one to a GL650/700 and did it fit and how did it run? Thank you in advance.

    Hi guys, Here is my story. I bought a CX500C 1980 in parts. The bike had sit a while outdoor but it's still pretty in good shape beside some parts. One on them is the H-Box. In my hands, when I shook it, I could hear the inner tubes loose in there. I managed to cut a hole in there and I was...

    Started up my 82 GL500 for the first time in a questionable amount of years and noticed some (maybe) white smoke. I've searched the interwebs but have had a hard time finding an exact explanation with images of exhaust smoke and what it means, to compare to. It has brand new oil + filter...

    Interested in replacing my stock exhaust tips on my 78 CX500. Not really looking to overhaul the whole system and would ideally like to find some nice, sleek, smaller tips. (Hate the stock cone shape.) Most of the ones I have found make the bike sound louder and I would like to keep it quiet as...

    Hi Everyone, This is my first post after recently deciding to push my project a bit further. I'm trying to figure out if its possible to remove and replace the H box with an aftermarket exhaust that doesn't require any sort of welding or metal working. I currently don't have access to any...

    Recently I've been trying to get Jenny's carbs dialed in as perfectly as I possibly can. I have the carbs synced with virtually 0 difference using a DIY water manometer. The engine evened out noticeably after the sync, but I was still getting symptoms of a lean condition. The engine was...

    Hi everyone, sorry I know it looks like I'm posting question after question but I am dying to get my project finished. I think the best way to explain it is that the right side runs consistently with a solid "thud" from the exhaust every moment whereas the left side is more of a "puff" with a...

    I purchased a pair of Megaphone exhausts for my rebuild a few months ago (now beyond return warranty) and after having them fitted and run for a while it turns out they are far too loud. I have looked at them for a while and doubt that they could be disassembled to add a plate to the baffle. The...

    Hey Everyone, I have a 1979 CX500C and I'm looking for some help. I apologize if these questions have been answered before but I haven't had the greatest luck navigating the forums. So I bought some low profile cafe racer type bars and when I reinstalled the throttle assembly, the throttle...

    First posting on here - I'm working on a 1980 CX500 and have a questions about the air/exhaust. My plan was to remove the H-box and run straight pipes. I've heard that with straight pipes it's advised to increase airflow and re-jet. I have the jets and pods needed but I'm wondering if there's a...

    I'm removing the box under the bike and getting Murray's upswept pipes for a pair of Harley Sportster mufflers I bought used last Fall. Pipes not ordered yet, waiting for a total from Murray because I'm in Canada, so can't measure anything yet in terms of buying/making a bracket. Just wondered...

    Alright, I understand the purpose of the H-Box. For this reason I intend to keep it on the bike. However, the megaphone mufflers of my 79 CX500C are in need of replacement. I don't like their look and would like to add something that looks a bit more clean (clean, referring to the look, not the...

    I want to change the exhaust on my '82 CX500C from dual exhaust to mono, (single tail pipe), solely for looks. I plan on removing the Hbox and fabricating my own header and muffler. I'm not looking to buy anything as I'm poor and cheap. I also plan on switching to a single pod,(if I can design a...

    Hi all, I have searched everywhere but cannot find an answer. I have a GL650i with full fairing. The exhaust is running clear but if you blast the throttle to 6/7k it will emit a cloud of black soot. The bike has done 32000km,(about 20000 miles) and has been stood for a long time so I suspect...
