The CB250 RS unit should be similar. The FT500 lump was actually derived from the XR/XL500 dirt bikes, so if you can find one of those, that may help. There was also a U.S. version of the FT500 called the Ascot, so you might try checking out U.S. websites.

Pulse generator


Take off exhaust, left bracket, side cover, then you see 2 pulse gen. around main gear, take the gear off, anscrew pulse generators.

I just do not know, why do you want to change them, usually they do not die, post a story, why do you think, they are bad.

1983 Honda VT 500 FT Ascot no spark


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset
