Question about 1983 Honda CBX 550 F-F2

3 Answers

1983 Honda CBX 550 backfires a lot and has no power

I have had problems starting the bike, especially after winter storage. If I get it going it runs for a day or so. After a couple of days sitting idle, the battery goes dead. The battery seems to be ok.

I just got the bike running for the first time this year. The carbs had been drained, the tank topped and it had fuel stabilizer added. I ran it for a while before draining the carbs I can start it and it runs bu it backfires every minute or two and has no power/acelleration.

Any thoughts or advice? Thanks

Mine was doing exactly the same - I cannot vouch enough for a carby cleaner called 'Seafoam' - it is American but you can buy it on Ebay - it will clean those carbs and fix your fuel issues. Don't mind all the smoke coming of the exhaust though, this is it cleaning the fuel lines and carbs. It is truly amazing stuff!

If the fuel is a year old, Replace all of it.Stabilizers are not restorers. Your backfiring may very well be due to the inconsistancy of the fuel. Try it and see if that gets you flying.. good luck

Hi, Anonymous parts swapping is common with most motorcycles when it comes to interchangeable or compatible parts from one model with another the best thing to do is call your local Dealership Parts Department or a reputable independent shop. If your location is not near a shop then go online and find a parts catalog or "FICHE" and match part numbers depending on your criteria.

Cbx 550 fires on 3 cyclinders for about 2 seconds the dies, wont run for a period of time, i cleaned the carbs, also the bike had been sitting for about 4 years, any help would be great.


Clean fresh gas? Checked the spark? The spark plug wire ends should be replaceable. They usually just twist, or unscrew, from the wires. They can get corroded or just plain wear out just like a cars spark plug wires do.
