If your clutch is slipping after you let out the lever (just for a second then it grabs) you need a new clutch cable. This is a fairly common problem on the CX500.
If you are not sure how to put the clutch together you can look at an online microfiche to see a break down of the clutch. or are good sites to check.

Hey I have a 1985 rm 250 and its been siting for about 3 months with all fuilds removed ....I have cleaned the carb and other areas on the bike ......but when I reset up the cluch it is stuck ingaged and...

a clutch sticking on after storage is not unusual. i find that if i put the bike in 2nd gear, pull the clutch lever in and rock the bike back and forth quite hard a few times that the clutch will free off. just make sure that the ingintion is turned off, or the lead is removed from the spark plug, to make sure that the bike cannot start. this has never failed me yet, and some of the bikes i have done this with were stored for quite a number of years. hope this helps

How do I change the air filter in my 1982 Honda Silverwing GL_500? The filter didn't have instructions.

Take off your right side cover (part #9) and you will see the air intake horn on the side of the air box. Turn the cover counter clockwise and pull the air filter straight out the side of the air box. The cover you turn is part # 2 on the diagram.

Have a 1982 cx-500c I'm getting a noise that kind of sounds like pins rattling around in the main fuse area. Also pulling in cluch and I think it is gone.

All Honda clutches rattle when you idle.Pull in the clutch lever and it will go away. I have owned a dozen different Honda's (100,000 mile on one CX500D alone) and the clutches all rattled at idle. All of them. Get used to it , I am afraid there is little that can be done about it.

My cbr 250 fire blade some times starts and then after it is idiling it will just loose power all together not sure what problem is and some time i will have to cluch start it not sure what problem is

This is most likely a fuel related problem, unless you have electrical gremlins that are screwing with your ignition unit. Does it idle OK with the choke engaged, but dies when you disengage the choke and/or when revving the engine? In that case, your air/fuel mixture is probably way too lean. Could be dirt clogging up your fuel tap, fuel line, fuel filter or carbs..?

Try running some Seafoam or similar carb/jet cleaner through your system. If that doesn't work, take the carbs out and give them a good old manual clean.

I have a honda cx500 and i keep geting fuel in the oil. I have rebuilt the carbs and the pitcock seems to be working.

Sounds like a float still sticking. Does fuel drip from the petcock when off, and the fuel lines off of it?

When i accelerate hard on my cx500 eurosport the clutch goes solid and i cannot change gear until i slow down ,any ideas ?

Change the oil and oil filter. Ride the bike for 50 miles or so then change th oil again but w/o another filter. Dirt and grit in the oil is making the clutch grab and not fully disengage. Changing oil will flush the gearbox. 10w40 motor oil.

Please rate this solution. Thanks bloohart!
