The deluxe model has two latches one on either side of the seat, if you flip both levers at the same time and lift, the seat will come off. The custom model has two bolts that hold the seat down, near the back, one on each side. Remove the side covers, take off the seat bolts and lift the back of the seat pulling toward the rear of the bike.

1981 honda cx500 idle problems I have a 1981 Honda CX500 Custom. It putters real bad almost to the point of stalling but only when its warmed up. This sucks because it putters at every stop sign or red light I hit. I have the haynes manual so i checked everything it suggested including cleaning the carbs twice, checking the valves, adjusting air fuel ratio, renewing spark plugs, checking for air leaks (I have cracks on my intake boot, but don't go through to the interior). I tried the carb cleaner approach but didn't get any results. At one point it was so bad to the point that it would stall every time I would start out in first gear. I then found a loose wire connection on a yellow wire which led to the ignition coil. Tightening that helped drastically until this current problem. What has me puzzled is that it ran fine in the early spring, even after sitting for four years. Whenever i don't want to be embarassed, I will put the choke on just slightly and it will idle high, but smooth. I don't ride with it on for more than 10 seconds. There is a small oil leak from the clutch cover but I don't think that would cause an issue. I changed the oil at the beginning of spring but I plan on doing it again soon since I have a new filter on the way. I am all out of options and need someone else's advice! The bike has 34k miles and am not looking forward to rebuilding it if that is the problem. I am going to look more closely into the electrical side tomorrow to be positive there are no loose wires going from the computer to the ignition coil. Any ideas will be appreciated.
