1979 Honda CX 500 A misfires badly


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
14. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
15. Fuel filter clogged.
16. Old or contaminated fuel.
17. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
18. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
19. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
20. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
21. Incorrect valve timing.
22. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
23. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
24. Incompatible performance parts.
25. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode

I need carburetor help for a 1980 Honda CX500.


For parts the best place to look is David Silver Spares, if they don't have it then there is a good chance it isn't available. To synchronise the carbs you will a set of vacuum gauges. They aren't expensive and they come with instructions.

1979 CX500. When you push the start button why does light dim


The starter button when pushed in half way turns the power off to the lights so more electricity can be used for powering the ignition and starter at the same time. If you press lightly you can turn off the lights with out engaging the starter. Pressing all the way down engages the starter. The button is a two position switch. Carefully take it apart , clean it and put it back together and you may fix the problem.I have three old Honda motorcycles that all have right hand switch assemblies wired to them from other bikes (Because the original was no longer available) You should be able to rewire any Honda two cable switch too work on your bike.

I have a 79 cx500 and it doesnt have a spark


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

For a CX500, initial (easy) checks would be:
  • sparkplug cap. In some versions, there is an arrester made up of fuselike carbon resistor with spring and rod. Illustrations here;
  • ensure black/white wire from engine stop switch & ignition switch going to the CDI box does not read zero to ground or simply disconnect it while testing;
  • check for pulsating low AC voltage (0.5VAC) from the pick-up coils, orange.white and blue/white wires;
  • check for pulsating high AC voltage (90+VAC) from the exciter / stator coils. Detailed test shown here;
  • in some instances, the ignition switch would be the culprit. Procedures here;
  • or even as simple as a fuseholder as discussed here.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
