On my 79 cx500c I have done pod filters and straight pipes with the h box. I changed the jets from 115 to 122.5. And now the bike sucks gas. Did I go to big on my jets any info would be nice thankyou

With an airbox i'm not sure but it seems that pods require more jetting than that but must times people do it without the hbox. Usually they end up changing to something between 125-135. But explain this sucking gas.

pull the plugs... are they fuel fowled? does it run like a raped ape? that fuel has to be going somewhere. either its burning hella rich and fowling plugs or its combusting fully and making a s_itload of power.

If it's a custom than 80 miles to reserve isn't bad. Isn't the best but are you talking about a completely dry tank?
