First off, new here, Hi! Helping a friend with her 1981 CX500D, All in all great shape, been sitting 2 years ( roughly ) Aside from what i am already guessing ( Tank flush, cream, Carbs ( rebuild ) and fresh fluids, anything i should look for? Where's a good place to get a rebuild kit for the carbs? I gonna pull them and check the floats, slides and see how they look ( Seized or not ) This will be my first CX build. Thanks for input guys.

Welcome to the forum! make sure the tires and in good shape and not cracking, plus check the brakes to be sure there in good working order. dont want to find that out while your going 60mph down the road.

Good thing to check the brakes. Take it from mister sieze here.



I just now got both passages cleaned. Course now I'm paranoid and my GS1100 MC is working perfect after I took it apart.



I would also pull the plugs. They can say a lot about how the bike ran when it did

I still have some on a shirt when I por 15ed my tank about 18 months ago and it's pretty damn strong and it just barely brushed the shirt.
