Question about 1982 Honda CX 500 B

1 Answer

Power loss at 50mph+

I have a 1980 Honda CX500 that runs great at lower speeds, but when the engine is warmed up, and I try to accelerate past 50mph, I lose power, and the engine sound seems to flatten out. Giving it more throttle does nothing. I am not much of a mechanic, but am willing to listen to any possible solutions and see if it is something I can do. If not, I am okay taking it in to the shop, I just want to know what the suspected problem is, and what the solution might be. Thanks!!!

Loss of power at 50mph + Engine and truck shake


I would check the fuel filter, it should be changed every 20,000 miles or so. Also I would check the fuel pressure at the test port. I would also check for a weak ignition coil.

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.
