Question about Honda Motorcycles
Are the European jets the same size diameter & length as the United States or will these jets interchange? What I really want to know will the European carburetor work on an American 1986 Honda 450 CMX motorcycle & work the correct way plus will the bike run the way it should? @

No. When you plug in the SD card, the Nuvi will load the map from your SD card. Once you get to the main menu, select the wrench symbol, then the map symbol and then "map info". You should see both the US and Europe map. Make sure the Europe map is checked. You can uncheck the US map. This is how you switch between maps. The reason why you have to have the extra map on the SD card is because the Nuvi can only have one map on it's internal drive, one at a time.
However, backing up your US map is a good idea.

You obviously love your steed and rightly so! (As I do mine FLHR) There are always issues as to what & which, I believe your CMX should use 10/40 or 15/40 grade? but that can change with conditions, I'm banging this to you From the U.k. so here 10/40 if a very warm climate maybe 0w/10 or similar, it really is a confusing issue.(I would be up for 10/40!) Par for course?
Firstly I would suggest a quality synthetic (Fully) your handbook will show grade, however if No handbook your supplier (Motorcycle Dealer) will have all relevant specifications on file. As for filter Go genuine it makes sense as there are naughty Far Eastern mass producers of cheap copies out there and they really don't give a didddly squat about your pride and joy so if malfunction occurs after your expensive investment! What a Bu'~mer!
Good Luck! please remember to press that BLUE button for my FREE effort!

Your bike has an automatic adjusting cam chain tensioner. No adjustment needed.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

Run the motorbikes engine to a normal running temperatue and thn set the air-fuel mixture by ...tightening all the way in taking care not to over tighten it as you may damage the tip of the screw,usually its thn 2 and half turns outwards or 3 , you will notice the change inthe idling of the bike's engine.
Its better to check the spark plug gap and also check the air filter, blow it with compressed air or if its tht dirty best would be to replace it.
