The 650 fired up immediately, ran great for a short putt,,,. It rained in central Iowa last week so sand and salt posed no problems. I also rode the 86vt1100c I got last summer,,,, perfect! Go Honda😎. I totally recommend the cheap non vaccuum petcock from ebay, about 6$, all it takes to adapt to a cx is two sizes of fuel lines, a filter and two clamps. No cranking for ever to get fuel, and can run gas out of carbs at idle before parking. No problem in over two years, no rebuilding as its sooo cheap to replace if it fails. Ride safe,, have fun!
