SOURCE: 1980 honda cx500 will sart with the chok pulled

This sounds like the main jets are varnished up and possibly the float(s) are sticking. Pull the carbs off the bike and clean them with carb cleaner. Remount the carbs then balance and sync them. On a bike that old I would spring for carb rebuild kits. The kits MAY have additional parts for other carbs along with yours. Just use the parts that match the ones from your carbs.

SOURCE: JUST REPLACED THE BATTERY AND SPARK PLUG WIRES.

Check valve clearances. Also, try a new spark plug in the weak cylinder. Check points setting and condition.

SOURCE: how to refill the reserve gas tank 1981 Honda CX500 motorcycle

there is only one tank to fill on your bike, your getting confused by the reserve. The reserve is just on the fuel tap itself. It has three positions, on , off and reserve. In the on position your fuel tap will be able to drink about 90% of your fuel tank and then it wont be able to drain anymore, then you must turn your fuel tap to the reserve position and it will be able to drink rest of your tank approx 10% that is left. So next time you fill up at a petrol station make sure your fuel tap is set to on, then when your bike starts to splutter out of fuel you can turn your fuel tap to reserve and get yourself to the petrol station to fill up, making sure you then turn your tap to on again. If you keep running out on the reserve it can cause debris in your tank to clog your carb up.
hope this helps

Takes special equipment to test the CDI ... does your bike start? run? if not ... there is that possibility that who ever told you it is bad is correct.

How to replace thermostat on 1980 honda cx 500 silverwing motercycle


Drain the radiator and remove the fuel tank. The thermostat is in a housing between the two cylinder heads. Two 6 mm bolts(10 mm wrench)hold the stat cover down. Replace the o-ring and thermostat together. Thermostat can be tested by placing in a pot of water on the stove, heat the water, and check opening temperature with candy thermometer. I had a friend that removed his and never put it back. It just took longer for the bike to warm up. good for warm climates but not cold climates.

I have a 1980 Honda cx 500. It runs great, but it does make a noise while in gear. It sounds like something is winding up as speed increases and winding down as speed decreases. When I put it in neutral...


Perhaps you got one of the new Honda 1980 Tech where they are using a Turbo to gain HP(Kw). It is a white elephant but a technology experiment. Bike too heavy for turbo, not very agile. Google CX500 and read it's review in NZ Bikers magazine 2010 March edition.
