Question about 1982 Honda CX 500 B
First check your oil level. If it is too high , your engine is full of gasoline. You will need to change your oil, drain the air box pollution tubes that hang down in front of the rear wheel (place a pan under the tube and pull out the plug , drain the tube , and replace the plug), check that the air filter is not saturated with oil (if so replace it). You may have a bad vacuum diaphragm on your petcock that is leaking gas into the motor. You can rebuild the the petcock with a K&L rebuild kit or replace it with a new one. You may have a sunk float or a worn or stuck float needle. Take the carburetors apart clean and inspect the components and replace as needed. Unfortunately, even a perfect motorcycle can have a float needle stick and fill the engine with gas forcing you to change your diluted oil. the only answer for this is to always turn off your fuel petcock when not riding.
