Question about 1980 Honda CX 500 A
I rode the bike home, parked it, went to ride again, it would not start. I have new plugs, coil, swapped the cdi, swapped the wiring harness( not the modules, solenoid etc), swapped off the right throttle, kill/run control. The bike will crank but won't start. I pulled a plug, and with it in the wire cranked the engine nothing.
I am not sure what else to look at. I have searched google and see references to bypassing the kill switch but am not sure how to do this.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated, it is too nice here to be in my car !!!!!!!!!!
this site does not list my yr and model I need
