    Technical Help Forum
    Ok so go easy on me :D I've put together a first draft of a wiring diagram for a 1980 CDI CX500. I'm aware it's awful but it's all there hopefully.

  7. CX500 Re-Wire

    Technical Help Forum
    Hi All, I purchased a Barn built (trashed) 1978 UK CX500 a few months ago and possibly made the foolish mistake when stripping it down for shot-blasting to decide upon a complete re-wire as nothing corresponded with any version of wiring diagram available in the book or online! I say foolish as...
