1980 CX500 Deluxe

Discussion Starter · #1 ·
I have a 1980 cx500 custom. I bought it about 4 weeks ago and it has been running perfect!!! Now when i start it I have to rev it up to about 2500 rpms so it won't die. If I do keep it revved up and shift into gear and let out on the clutch to ride it dies immediatly.

I think the battery is ok. The headlight has plenty of juice and the battery looks pretty new.

It has plenty of gas I have already filled it up twice.

The gas switch is on.

Ignition switch is on run.

I changed the oil but reused the filter. (I Coudn't find a filter that day but I now have on)

16,000 miles

Any help would be extremely appreciated.
