I'm a 17 year old rider who proudly owns a 1980 CX500B and have been licenced and riding the bike for over a year, and i have a few problems with the machine. I have starting problems with the starter motor but cant determine what the cause is. The starter motor engages for a short time and kicks out but the starter motor keeps goin without driving anything. It takes a few minuets to get her started when she engages for a short time. Once I get the CX started, she runs on one piston for a while then the second kicks in and she runs fine. This bike is my passion and I wont allow myself to get a rid of it. would love other riders opinions and advice as it would be greatly appreciated.
