SOURCE: Honda CR 125 1997 wont idle

Your carberautor is either gummed up or needs to be adjusted. Begin by going to an auto zone or similar store and gatting a can of carb. cleaner that gets added to your gas. Be sure to follow the instructions on how much you add per gallon. let that run through your bike for a while and see where you are. If cleaning the carb. doesn't hellp, then the carb. will have to be adjusted.

SOURCE: how to replace thermostat on 1980 honda cx 500

Drain the radiator and remove the fuel tank. The thermostat is in a housing between the two cylinder heads. Two 6 mm bolts(10 mm wrench)hold the stat cover down. Replace the o-ring and thermostat together. Thermostat can be tested by placing in a pot of water on the stove, heat the water, and check opening temperature with candy thermometer. I had a friend that removed his and never put it back. It just took longer for the bike to warm up. good for warm climates but not cold climates.

SOURCE: I need to adjust the cam chain tension on a 1980

Take off the tappet hole inspection cover behind the cylinder on top of the engine case. Remove the tappet hole inspection cover underneath the radiator in the front of the motor. Put a 17 mm socket on an extension with a breaker bar in the front hole and turn the motor over manually until the top dead center (TDC) mark for the number 1 cylinder appears in the other hole.behind the right cylinder is a gold 10 mm bolt coming out of the back of the block. Loosen it one turn and re tighten it. You have just adjusted your cam chain. If you ever have to take off the rear cover to replace the water pump seal and you just happen to have a cx650 self adjusting cam chain tensioner, it will fit right in so you can forget about adjusting your cam chain ever again.

I have a 1980 Honda CX 500 Custom and the Temperature gauge shows hot if I run the bike above 6000 rpm for any length of time. If I run a bit slower it seems to hold its own. What temp should the coolant...


Honda temperature gauges tend to run high before the electric fans kick in. They also tend to read differently on different bikes of the same model (fuel gauge, temp gauge , speedometer, etc.)Your fan is driven attached directly to your cam so it spins constantly. If your machine is not actually overheating or boiling over and has plenty of anti freeze, I would just keep an eye on it and not worry about it. If your engine gets really hot it will tend to leak anti freeze down the left rear cover past the water pump seal. This is normal and should be of little concern unless the water pump develops a steady drip. Then the water pump seal is bad and will need to be replaced.

Takes special equipment to test the CDI ... does your bike start? run? if not ... there is that possibility that who ever told you it is bad is correct.
