1978 Honda CX500 cold start + test drive
Edit: in 2013 this engine was replaced by a brand new engine. Check my
This is my 1978 Honda CX 500. After the first test run I wasn't happy with
it. So last week I replaced the stator with a new one. But it still doesn't
sound well. It starts on the left cylinder. When the engine warms up, the
right cylinder comes in. From then on it runs fine.
1982 Honda CX500 Stock Exhaust (1 of 3)
This video is part of a series that documents the change in Exhaust sound when I replaced the 27-year-old
2-into-1-into-2 stock Exhaust (which
has a couple significant leaks in the collector box and partly rusted out
mufflers) with a brand new 2-into-1 Mac Exhaust. There are three videos for the old Exhaust: (1) this one at 7.5 feet
directly behind the bike (plus some "closeups" of the sound at various
locations), (2) one at 18 feet directly behind the bike, and (3) one at 7
feet to the left of the bike. The audio was recorded independently of the
video. Audio was recorded by a Shure SM57 dynamic mic running through a
Tube MP preamp and into GarageBand on a MacBook Pro. It should be obvious
when the microphone is being held near the camera and when it remains
stationary on the stand behind the bike while the camera shows the tach.

This video displays the amount of work and attention to detail that was put
into the creation of this bike.
