Question about 1982 Honda CX 500 B
Drain your tank and take off the fuel tank petcock. Look to see if the fuel filter is still intact/there. If it is damaged or missing replace it. The problem is rust in your tank. It causes the needle to stick open. You can turn your gas off and run your carburetor dry while riding to wash the rust past the needle to stop it from dripping while you ride. But the problem will persist until you fix the filter or add an additional inline filter to kill the problem at the source. I was having this problem 15 years ago with my CX500. To help stop tank rust always store your motorcycle with a full tank of stabilized fuel or for long storage (years)drain and coat the inside with storage oil.
