    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    Pidjones...I should have used maths to work out how much to take off sidestand. It is a little too over leaning but it works. But that's what hapens when you eyeball. I used a vise first which made tube slightly oval, then pounded with a hammer to close and return to shape. I use several...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    The bike has been running very well with the Keihin carbs. Going for a big ride tomorrow. It did however end up much lower than where it started. As a result, the side-stand kept the bike way too upright, and the centre-stand was almost impossible to use....so much force required that I could...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    I live on the other side of the world. Never met him. Just bought my first product from him. I'm a self employed 57 year old motorcycle enthusiast amateur. Now you know a little more about me. But what I just told you is all you know. And of course you know my views on what things should be...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    I was skirting around the issue, but even if I knew I would not have disclosed. When the time came I would have referred the person to CXMAN aka Murray, who would have responded as he did. I am fiercely opposed to acquiring information or products from small business owners that put their souls...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    I don't have Murray's carbs yet so can't answer your question. On the current stock Keihin CV carbs I used 90 main and 120 secondary.

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    I've put about 20km so far. Keep in mind that I have no road rego yet, so that's 20Km too many. I'm waiting for Murray's carbs, and I need to adjust the rear shocks to stop the mini bounces, and in time, cut about 1" off both stands to make them useful, but I'm calling it....and I'm more than...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    Not sure I want to do rings every 10-20K's Crazypj. Doesn't come that easy to me. I don't rides bikes that hard any more. But I would keep experimenting with different materials. Maybe some panty hose.

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    Jaja....These are the first carbs I ever clean and rebuild...AND get working again. I may not use them once the Mikunis arrive, but I'm never throwing them out. Or at least until the missus tells me otherwise.

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    Well, just as I thought troubles were over, it started to hiccup again at 4000RPM. Could not get past this magic number. It may be that all previous problems were contributing.....the poor flow out of the petcock caused by a plastic bag inside the tank, some shit inside the carbs which I failed...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    I like the right angle set up. No kinks in line. The red filter can I showed has a sintered metal filter. I looked up what size particles these filter and its down to 30 microns. According to cxman this is the low limit before flow is restricted. Now I dont know if it was a kink in the line or...

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    Thanks fellas. And thanks for the tips re filters. Crazypj, my brother told me exactly same thing re indicators and MOT. I'll take it to my mechanic who is also an inspector of unmodified vehicles so he can give me a list of possible defects.

    Am I the Pontius Pilate of this CX500?

    No doubt, and thanks der_nanno....but I'm having trouble finding one on a net search. Can you be more specific? Is it the whole filter or just the paper?
