I just got a cx500 off my friend that didn't really want much to do with it but at the time it had older gas but we could somewhat get it to run with the choke pulled It just wouldn't idle or get over 3000rpm's now that I have it I drained the tank and put fresh 93 octane in it and now it wont fire at all but it will fire with carb cleaner getting sprayed in the air box I did have to remove the gas strainer from the tank being that I was gonna clean it but it got too messed up to work and it just causes a huge gas leak. So please can someone help?
