CX500 with Emgo 17" Reverse cone mufflers
Installed the mufflers on my cafe CX500, the sound in the video doesn't
really reflect how loud it is, I think the wind noise mucked up the sound
recording on the camera a bit.
Honda CX500 Cafe Racer First Start
My overhauled 1981 Honda CX 500 Cafe racer, first start-up in a loooong
time after a lot of major work to the entire bike. Skip to 1:30 to avoid
the mucking around at the start!
Doesn't idle too good yet and small aesthetic things will be fixed soon.
Should be done within the month!
Excuse the slightly weird old man, not sure where he came from ;)

Honda CX 500
This CX is a 500/650 hybrid with home-made Exhaust and car muffler. 500 engine in a 650
Engine has done 150,000 + miles.
The sound recording on my camera does not do justice to the raspy tone of
the v-twin ratbike! (carburation fully sorted now too - this vid was shot
just after building) http://ofapars-.webs.com/
Yoshimura RS-4 Muffler Re-Pack Instructions
Maintain your Exhaust systems
longevity and performance by following our step-by-step instructions for
re-packing your Yoshimura RS-4 and RS-4D muffler.
Do you remember when your muffler was last repacked?
If not, it's probably time...
Unlike their OEM counterparts, Yoshimura Road Exhaust systems need to be repacked every 7,000
- 10,000 miles, while Off-road systems need to be repacked after 10-15
hours of use. Repacking your muffler at the suggested intervals is
essential for your Exhaust to perform
the way it was designed.
Dirty packing restricts airflow from your motor, which results in a loss of
power and degradation of sound. Repacking your muffler allows for freer
airflow from your motor, which restores lost power and improves the Exhaust sound.
At Yoshimura, we use advanced space-age fiberglass packing material for our
mufflers, along with high-strength stainless steel rivets. We also include
new badging to freshen up your muffler's appearance.
Honda CX500 Cafe/Bobber/Streetrod
Best use yet for the unloved Honda CX500. Seen at Weaver Motorsports
Vintage Saturday in N. Tonawanda, NY. June 26, 2010. Built and ridden by
owner Chad Herkey. Best in Show Trophy winner! Minimalist, less-is-more,
simplicate-and-add-lightness, whatever, it's a jewel. I want one.
CX500 carb balancing part 2
Corrected the high idle issue by adjusting the hard stop on the throttle
cable plate (Thanks Larry!). After an hour or so, I gave up on getting the
synchronization perfect. All is fine until I try to tighten the locking
nut on the set screw. Believe me, I tried compensating for the lock nut,
but it is just way too finicky... I got them close.. And as far as I'm
concerned, "close" counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and CX500's!
