It's like we been mates before. Yup. a bit of paranoia. Right piston gave me trouble until I turned the soupcan ring compressor over so the tightening side was under, not over. It wouldn't go in, but I didn't force it. It stopped once the oil rings went in but went in once I turned the soupcan over. I heard a snap when the piston went in. I think. Left piston went in fine with the upside down soupcan, but the rod cap was a pain in the ass. so here I am. Should probably take the right piston out for a look, but worried I'll nick the new rod bearings. Not gonna sleep right til I know for sure.
I have to line a tank, it is weeping gas at one of the seams. Tank is clean otherwise but can't get to the seam from the inside to do anything but reline it. Have searched the webs for reviews, there are 3 or 4 popular choices. What one have you used and do you or do you not recommend it ?
Hi everyone, first time posting.
Here we go. I have a CX500 that was running a bit rough, so I ordered Murry's carbs. During installation I found that my vacuum stock carbs were not hooked up correctly and that my right spark plug cap was fused inside (Murry recommended the brass rod...
I always wanted to be rich, but this isn't what I had in mind. My bike is running well enough that I can take it out for runs to the beach and around town, but it is eating gas and coating my plugs with carbon on even a short trip. I'm looking for help in identifying the most likely causes...
bought this 79 custom that had been sitting for 3 years. cleaned the carbs and jets and found a broken off mixture screw (screwed in all the way with tip still in place). when i opemed the petcock the carbs started to overflow badly. reopemed thr carbs and recleaned everything
I need a fork rebuild kit for a '81 CX500D. I don't have them apart yet so I don't know what shape the bushings are in. But they don't hold air and are very soft. The kits that I've seen don't show the O-rings for the cap or connector hose. Can anyone recommend a vendor and kit # ?
