SOURCE: no power

I guess you have to check the wiring starting from the battery to the fuse box right to the ignition switch , sometimes wires snap at around the steering column and due to the age of yr bike porbabley some wires may have snapped around there at the lower triple tree.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1979 CX500. When you push the start button why does light dim

The starter button when pushed in half way turns the power off to the lights so more electricity can be used for powering the ignition and starter at the same time. If you press lightly you can turn off the lights with out engaging the starter. Pressing all the way down engages the starter. The button is a two position switch. Carefully take it apart , clean it and put it back together and you may fix the problem.I have three old Honda motorcycles that all have right hand switch assemblies wired to them from other bikes (Because the original was no longer available) You should be able to rewire any Honda two cable switch too work on your bike.

1979 honda cx500 only runs on one cylinder! I have good spark and feeding it fuel and still wont run !so I'm totally lost on what to do please help???


If you are sure that the idle jet in that carb is clear (spark plug getting wet is a good quick indicator) then I would check the valve clearances as they would be the most likely problem.

If they are o.k. then do a compression test...

You have got a load of bad fuel, either dirt or water. Check the contents of your fuel tank and clean it out. Remove the fuel tap and clean the filter. You will also have to clean out the carbs.

I have a 1980 Honda cx 500. It runs great, but it does make a noise while in gear. It sounds like something is winding up as speed increases and winding down as speed decreases. When I put it in neutral...


Perhaps you got one of the new Honda 1980 Tech where they are using a Turbo to gain HP(Kw). It is a white elephant but a technology experiment. Bike too heavy for turbo, not very agile. Google CX500 and read it's review in NZ Bikers magazine 2010 March edition.
