Hello I have a 1979 cx500 cafe racer I installed pods and a different mufflers.
Did you remove the H-box or did you just change the nufflers?

When the engine is cold it does not run right. it bogs when you pull the throttle and it is rough.
Are you using the choke when cold? If so, when do you start to put the choke off.

Yes I removed the h pipe and I take the choke off after the idle raises Maby after 10 seconds
On my bike I push the choke only partly off. It is still at the point where the fast idle is engaged but chokke is not full on. I ride it that way for a short time. How short depending on ambient temperature.
