I need a left side ignition coil, the one under the gas tank for a 1980 MUST be off a 1980. I'm going to try to make the ones I just got work, but my coils only have one wire coming from them. Left side (coil wire) is yellow, right side (coil wire) is orange.

Anyone got any that they KNOW work, please DM me. If you have questions I have photos of what I need. If you have the part DM me please.

Any coil from a CDI CX (or any CDI bike, for that matter) will work. They aren't specific to any model year.
Also, the coils are identical, except for the color of the wire. They are completely interchangeable.

the guy who posted he "was going to " redo the boots never has done any that he has shown

the last time he posted he was not even using the right temp range of rubber yet

cx500 intake boots can still be purchased

david silvers spares carries them

The coils I just bought off an 82 do not work. There are two wires feeding it, and the spark wire is too short. I just need the parts that'll work. I don't care what they're off of, they just have to match what I've got.

The '82 isn't a CDI CX. It uses transistorized ignition, like the Silverwing.
You can use coils from a '78 to '79 CX500 Standard, a '79 to '81 Deluxe, or a '79 to '81 Custom.
Or just mount pit bike coils. They're inexpensive, and they aren't 40 years old.

Hello, I don't suppose anyone has clutch retaining plate I could buy from them and have shipped to the uk? A couple of the lugs are broken on mine!

Thanks

Absolute legend! Thankyou very much for that. Whoever thought of doing this deserves a medal. Simple but effective! 👍

I have a 1979 speedo/tach gauges in good condition. I bought them many years ago, but sold my cx500 before I put them on. They have been in a box for about 6 years. I’m going to list it on eBay, but thought I’d check here first. I live south of Nashville, TN. I’d probably list it around $100 on eBay. If you want them, make me an offer and I’ll try to work out a deal. I hate to see them just sit. When I bought them, they were in working condition, but I never attached to my bike so I can’t confirm. Only the gauges and the surround piece (no front fairing attached) I’ll update this post when they sell. Shoot me an email at [email protected]

Those look really good.
If anyone buys these and still needs the nacelle, I have a couple (plastic only.)
