Question about 1981 Honda CX 500 A
Replace your main fuse on the starter solenoid. That should restore power. If you are having to jump the starter at the solenoid you may need a new solenoid. Your starter button could be the issue, in that case you would have to replace the switch assembly. As for running only on high revs, you need to take your carburetors apart and clean the idle circuit (jets an body passageways) These machines are notorious for burning out there spark plug caps. The caps unscrew from the end of the wires and should OHM out at 5000. If they read higher or lower replace them.
