    Hopefully, project will start soon.

    Just to know as a "worst case" szenario, will their be possibility to get a

    - water pump
    - water cooler
    - fuel pump

    or are these items the KO crtiteria?

    What could be a K.O. criteria?

    Do CX500/650 n.a. parts (water pump, cooler) fit and if so. will they be easy to get?

    Thanks!
    Cheers, Ulrich

    At this moment there are no Knock Out criteria for both the CX650 Turbo and the CX500 Turbo.

    Prices of parts are reasonable when you take your time to find them, if not you can burn a hole in your wallet very quickly

    A good place to start about the particular problems of our Turbo's go to : TMIO - Tech Help - 1982 Honda CX Turbo

    With a bike with unknown service history just go for the Triple Bypass maintenance, sounds funny but it is something any Honda CX Owner has to go through

    What is a Triple Bypass ? See : Double / Triple Bypass

    Good starting point for Turbo's :Triple Bypass of CX500 Turbo parts and costs

    My advise first find out what you need in parts and the only way to find out is to disassemble your engine !

    Ulrich,

    I would recommend you go ahead and service the final drive and use the proper Moly paste which is available from Honda. Check the condition of the front seal and lube the splines. Odds are you are going to find it in good shape, but having sat, I would rather not risk water absorption to possibly contaminate the oil. I guess you could drain, leave it overnight in a covered clear glass container and if no presence of water has settled to the bottom, then refill with that fluid. It had major service only 4k km earlier, so it might be an item you can check and later do the service. The nice thing you have going for it is that it was well cared for an it had some major service. I would see if the former owner had any recollection of the motor's changes.

    As was suggested, it isn't a terrible thing to pull apart to see if you have any issues for the triple bypass and you will know the condition of the timing chain tensioners and stator and see if you have any signs of oil leaks or water pump leaks. It will only cost you time and a few seals as long as you don't break anything and you don't find any corrosion present. Depending on the storage temperatures then external rust or other oxidation could be caused by condensation. I would think that several of the electrical connectors might benefit from a cleaning and inspection of the contacts to ensure they are tight and reassembly with a bit of dielectric grease.
    When you have the motor out you can use an inspection mirror or a borescope tool (some available for phones these days that are pretty good) to check the water passages.
    Not a terrible thing to assess the condition of the hoses and ensure the wiring is in good order while the motor is out for inspection.

    Changing the brake hoses, if Germany allows, to a braided stainless teflon hose that is TUV approved would be a good way to eliminate possible inner hose failure which can kill a caliper and you if the brake decides to stay closed at the wrong time not allowing fluid back to the MC. Having sat for a long time, I would rather have the peace of mind it is in good order and safe over taking a risk.

    Once you know what it needs you can search for the parts and go about getting her ready for the road.

    The front caliper is common among many of the Honda bikes. Honda seals recommended over aftermarket.

    Cheers, David

    Just under the red connector there is a rubber upright tab on which the plastic box should be mounted containing your manual.

    See picture of the container just left of the manual :

    By the way Sgt. Pinback, Dark Star is one of my favorite films. Talby was my favorite.

    Talby was a honk that fozzled it.


    How do I get those exhausts look good?

    Bike came back from a shop. Order was: make her run!

    What they did:

    - new brakes with new brake lines
    - all fluids new
    - new battery
    - new fuel pump (used)
    - needed the waste gate to move
    - tank cleaned inside

    ..... and runs !

    Did not yet ride her myself but the guy from the shop was impressed.

    Will soon start to clean her up, waiting for good weather and to finish my current projekt:

    Wow that was quite a find...the one thing no one mentioned to you ( and i am not sure if you are aware of it) is how FEW of these bikes Honda actually made. your bike was #618 of 1777 EVER made WORLDWIDE. Based on the info i have found it also is one of the 102 that were sent to Germany to sell.
    I am lucky enough to own #854. The US got 1015 to play with.

    Your bike after some elbow grease and some minor touch up should be a real nice survivor bike you can ride and enjoy once its sorted. They are a beautiful bike to ride and Definitely something you wont see everyday. Most parts are not available so be careful taking it apart...like others have said those turn signal lenses, seat cover and that owners manual are worth big bucks...and if the "storage compartment" lid on the fairing is still there make sure it doesn't fly off when you eventually do get it going. Just out of curiosity what did you pay for it?
