    Technical Help Forum
    Hi everyone, I am working of restoring my 1979 CX500, and it is all good mechanically and running.

  4. Gauge help!

    Technical Help Forum
    Right now I've got a 78 cx500 with the stock gauges and everything up by the handle bars Is all stock. Frankly I hate the way it looks, I have a 1940's police spotlight that I'd like to fab into a new headlight and I'd like to get a single gauge that looks something similar to this 2.5" Black...

  8. Speedo or Tach Elimination

    Where Can I Find...
    Hey, I'd like to get rid of one of these gauges. Which raises a few questions: Which one is better to eliminate? Where does the Tach cable go, and can it simply be removed or is there a hole to plug up...? And if the Speedo is better to eliminate, can/should I just leave that little speedo...
  9. CX650 Gauges help

    CX Customization and Mods Forum
    Hey guys! Just got a nice CX650 that runs great and now looks great. I picked it up as a rolling frame and engine, with a box of bolts and other parts. It was fun to figure out how it went together and even funner to start it up. There is a loud ticking sound coming from the engine while its...
