Question about 1987 Honda CBX 250

1 Answer

CBX 250 been standing unused a long while; cuts out at low revs

I'm told this bike has been left standing in a shed for a long time; last owners only claim to have done 450ks on it. Takes a bit of starting... much revving to get the motor to catch... What do you think?

Honda cbx 6 clutch rattle at idle and low rev hirendouse

Glazed alternator clutch plates? Kind of a ratcheting sound? Common when oil wasn't changed or sitting unused too long.
1. Easy fix - drain oil, remove filter. Add diesel fuel to crankcase. Turn engine over. let sit and drain. Refill with new nonsynthetic oil and replace filter. Warm up. Drain, remove filter. Refill with fresh nonsynthetic oil, and install new filter.
2. Harder, but better. Remove plates and clean or replace them.
