Question about 1997 Honda CB 500 S
Always started on the button until today: now won't fire up. Battery is ok (new) reading 13.5v before load. Vaccuum fuel tap is ok (outlet emits fuel when engine turned over or syringe used on vacuum line to drop pressure on same,) opening drain screws on carbs shows fuel so presume fuel getting to carbs, holding spark plug to engine shows spark. I am at a loss as to where to look next.
Finally sorted when I replaced both plugs. I've never come across one failing instantly before in 30 years of motorcycling (maybe that's because I ride old bm's!)
