Question about 1981 Honda CX 500 B
Won,t run on left cylinder ,good spark but lack of fuel,have stripped carbs but i,m new to this ,not sure which screw does what any help welcome,i don,t have a manual so i,m working blind but i will get 1 cheers gary
Pull the bowl from the left carb and remove and clean the float needle and jet. It sounds to me that this passage is plugged. You might as well clean the whole set since you have it off.
It is a common problem for those carbs on the older bikes for the jets to plug up from old gas, or material such as rust in the tank. Check your fuel filter if you have one. If not I would suggest you install one when you are done.
