    Yup... quiet... I want a bike so quiet it could sneak up on a Ninja! Well, some noise is ok. Anyways... '79 CX500 Standard, and it's missing the mufflers. Right now I just need them on to get the bike running and not angering the neighbors. Winter, I'll take it down to the frame and when done...

    Noticing lately that I'm burning oil (or so I believe) in my right cylinder. Reason I state this is on some starts, I'll get whitish smoke from my RH exhaust (not condensation at all), as well, tiny droplets of black splatters on my rear differential. Also, when putting my hand at both ends of...

    All, This weekend I installed a new h box on my 1980 Cx custom, it took literally all day to get all the pipes back on as they didn't want to line up perfectly. I'm have Harley cans on the back installed by a previous owner, before I took it all apart and re-installed it was not backfiring. I...

    Hey guys, I just took off my mufflers, and I love the look. Fits great with my build! But I dont love how loud it is... Australia is a bit strict on their volume rules, and I hate feeling like a doucher when Im cruising in the city. I had a thought the put baffles in straight pipes, and...

    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...

    So I was finally able to get the bike running after cleaning the carbs 3 times.. Now it seems to be backfiring through the exhaust! Fire is also coming out the exhaust pipe when I pull the throttle back with load popping.. I pulled the spark plugs and found the right side was wet with black oil...

    I have an 82 gl500 and am currently wanting a deeper more throaty sound. Not necessarily needing it much louder but a little louder is fine. Live in a neighborhood with a lot of bikers. Nobody gives shit to the harley up the block with straight pipes so I think I'm good as far as noise...
  9. CX500 & CX650 Turbo Forum
    Hi all, I've removed the exhaust pipe from my CX500T in the process of servicing the Pro-Link assembly. The four exhaust nuts (holding the header to the turbo) came off OK, but look pretty rough after 30+ years of service. The OEM parts fiche doesn't specifically list these nuts, but does...
