Question about 1984 Honda vt 500 ft ascot
How do I reset the trip odometer on my 84' Honda VT500 Ascot? I haven't really found a way to reset it, as I would like to see how many mpg's I get and all that jazz... Can someone please [email protected]
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Was the main 30 amp fuse checked/replaced? The main fuse would on the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

the carb is clogged up. You will have to remove the float bowl and clean the jets. use spray carb cleaner. Use a very fine copper wire strand to probe the jets--do not scratch or englarge. Empty all the gas out of the bike including fuel lines. use fresh fuel. Be sure to count the number of turns you make on any adjustment screw and write them down. This will make it much easier to put back together in proper adjustment.

Hi there, Your problem will most likely be that the speedo drive coller has failed!
This is an easy fix,( Part number of the part is 44808-MR7-013) you will be able to order it from your local dealer.
The speedo on the CB1000 Big One is driven off your front sprocket, you will need to take off the side covers on the left hand side of the bike.Stars by disconnecting the gear selector from its shaft (check the two marking dots, on the end of the shaft and selector, make sure you refit in same position!) then take out the 3 fixing bolts and remove outer cover. then you will have to remove 3 long bolts only ( leave the short servo bolts) this will let you remove the inner sprocket cover. and on the Nut of the front sprocket is a small white round drive bush. this is what will have failed check for damage! and replace. I would recommend changing the speedo cable at this point to. if your speedo cable has snagged inside its sleeve, it will go stiff causing the drive bush to crack or round out.
