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.

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.

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.
