Question about 1996 Honda CB 500
I have a strange problem, when i let the clutch all the way out the bike starts to miss fire but when the clutch is in it runs fine! if i ride the bike slipping the clutch it will ride fine, so it seems to be just he last inch or so on the clutch that makes it do it??? i'm baffled!!
This is a strange problem. As such, you gotta agree to give me at least a "Helpful" rating even if we don't end up with a fix. After all, I am trying to help.
All that being said, I think the problem is in the carbs. The bike is running lean in the low rev range and now you are putting a load on the engine. I can't identify if your carbs are CV carbs ( Vacuum controlled carb slides), or standard carbs with throttle controlled slides. Assuming standard carbs, For each carb; remove the carb cap and pull out the slide. Now move the clip on the top of the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end fuel mix. Now there is more power to handle the load on the engine. Two notches may be needed but start with one.
EXACTLY what bike do you have; i.e. "1996 Honda CBR500 SE" or "1996 Honda CBR500 R6"
Also, is there an electrical switch built into the clutch lever assembly?
