    Taken from,

    This just in ....

    Honda CX500 owners (or friend of owners). We here at Sudco have been getting more and more calls requesting carbs for the CX500. If you have a CX500 or know of a CX500 owner in the Los Angeles area, please contact Chad at chadt@sudco.com or (310)637-8330. If we use your bike and find something that works we will give you that carburetor conversion.



    Please drop them a line and let them know that we need carbs. Or at least ask what jets to use, especially in the VM32 roundslides. The ones that I have on my CX500 work great, still have mid-range gurble that I have to address.

    Or go to their Facebook and leave a message ,

    Good luck guys, and remember with the correct jetting any old used WM32 will work like charm. eBay has them for $25 a pair. Sudco and I am figuring out the jetting right now,naturally Sudco will figure it out way first, but then we will all have cheap dependable carbs.

    they have posted here and in the for sale section



    32s are to small for a cx500 they do fit in handily but dont have the correct air flow



    they are typically used on a 125-200 cc engine

    I contacted Sudco in early September 2012 and ask them if they had a carburetor kit for CX500. They responded at that time that they did NOT have one and too many higher priority projects at this time to work on one.

    I contacted them before I talked to Murray about mine and they told me the same thing they told Keys. Don't waste your time with Sudco and go with Murray's set up. The guy knows these bikes like the back of his hand. Sudco doesn't. Murray has better customer service too.

    I used Round Slide Mikuni Carbs, although I too think 32 body is too small air flow. I used 34 bodies and I got great results.



    I am almost at sea level, see here for my jetting - My link



    go to post #43 I list each jet needle and slide number used - all parts you can get from Sudco catalog.



    Getting the throttle cables to work out will be your biggest obsticle. You can find cable splitter kits at most British Bike Parts sellers on the internet, but I actually used the lower half (the part that splits) from a snowmobile and the top half (the single cable that pulls the spliter was from a Yamaha TTR90) because I needed a short top cable to go with the snowmobile lower half.



    This is an old picture - the bike has since gone through many updates:

    Excellent info.I don't know much about the slide carb option but had them years ago on an old Norton and posted just out of interest
