Question about 1983 Honda CBX 550 F-F2

1 Answer

Should the spark plugs spark when you on off ther kill switch

1983 Honda CBX 550 F

Is it normal for the switching on and off the kill switch to cause the sparks plugs to spark when the ignition is on, but the bike not running? Just turning on and off the kill switch makes the plugs spark. The bike also backfires a lot when running and has no power or acceleration.

Thanks

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.

I have a question about a honda cbx 650 e Just resently i bought the motorcycle and drove home with it. everything was ok. Now it won't start again. I replaced the following items: - New battery - New oil...


some of these bikes came with a safety switch on the kickstand so that if it is down the bike wouldnt start check to see if it has one and then to see if it is stuck.

Hello, I have a 1985 cbx 550 f with loud cam chain rattle, i believe this to be a fault on this model, can the cam chain tensioner be upgraded or replaced with one from another model? Regards Rob


sorry to tell you this but it might be the head. This model ran a no bearing head for the cams and they wear out. If it is the chain you got lucky, there are after market quality chains and tensioners out there
