    I have a 1979 cx500 that will refuse to run when ridden. The vast majority of parts have been replaced and or upgraded yet it will refuse to run. I had it on idle and it was sitting happily for half an hour. The battery was charged up for 5 hours, bike was turned on and ran ok at idle, didn t need any choke, battery was checked and confirmed charging. Test rode it and power seemed poor, very little pull. Engine stopped after 0.3 miles. Temp gauge read 75. Wouldn t turn over, battery seemed completely flat however indicators, brake and headlights worked.. After waiting for half an hour, it started up again no problem. It has had a new stator, new ignition unit, new carburettors tank cleaned, new fuel and yet the problem still persists. Does anyone have any idea?

  • If R. Nader was so bent on protecting us from ourselves, why didn't he try to ban motorcycles?(NOT that I'd Like that)?

    Best answer: The Corvair engine out of my '61 placed 3rd in its class in the '74 Baja 1000, it had non-Nadar mechanics. LOL! Your question is a little off the mark, Nadar was also involved with getting 2-stroke motorcycles off the Ca. roadways. (at the time a good thing). The Corvairs were a POS car but their engines... show more

    The Corvairs were a POS car but their engines weren't too bad.

  • Financing for a Motorcycle....?

    Best answer: Its HARDER to qualify for a motorcycle than a car because its easier to hide the bike. You are looking at needing income of $1800+ a month, 6 months on the job and probably a couple years of good credit. Score needs to be above 700 probably.

    Best answer: Its HARDER to qualify for a motorcycle than a car because its easier to hide the bike.

    You are looking at needing income of $1800+ a month, 6 months on the job and probably a couple years of good credit. Score needs to be above 700 probably.

    You can't expect to borrow $7500+ if your prior high credit has been $1000 or less.

    Also, many lenders do not want to bother with loans for less than $7k. I think State Farm might do $5000 car loans. Not sure about bikes.

  • Is purple colour considered girlish?

    Best answer: Agreed. Just be yourself man, today I saw a man driving a pink motorcycle and I was just proud of him. If people judge you because of wearing pink or purple or any color whatsoever, they're just a bunch of low-grade idiots that you shouldn't hang around anyway.

  • Help for my crf250 2006. Problems starting?

    My crf250 doesn't want to go when I rev it low. On other 250s you can just virtually drop the clutch and go but on my bike you have to have the engine whining and let it out real slow? Don't know if this is just me being a retard or something I could help maybe by having the fuel mix a bit richer or thinner?

    But? I have to ask; In an era of very low cost fossil fuel, the every decreasing price of solar energy, why would you go with labor intensive wood gas?

    There was a revival of wood gas interest in the 1970's and wood gas civilian auto's in the gasoline short WW2 years stating that the engines needed frequent rebuilding... but didn't include what deteriorated rapidly on the engine.
