Servicing the CBX Ignition System
This booklet takes you step by step through finding the cause for a no-spark condition. It begins with common but very important and often overlooked visual and voltage checks, then proceeds through a simple three-step technique for accurately pinpointing the cause of the trouble. This is a simple ignition system, and most faults are not in the parts but in the connections. All the same, it helps to know how to trace those connections, as well as how best to test the parts. Not as technical as the charging booklet, but similarly systematic in approach. And like the others, this is an 8 1/2" by 11" booklet, runs to 25 pages, and contains scores of clear, to-the-point illustrations, most of them close-ups. Also included are line drawings for better understanding. And, all these steps are equally applicable to the identical ignition system on the early 80s DOHC CB750, CB900/1000 and CB1100 Honda fours, as well as the SOHC CB650, and later GL500 and GL650, and in fact, 95 percent of the Honda road bikes made between 1979 and 1990. All of these machines use the same electronic ignition system. For a book on "souping up" the point ignition on Honda SOHC Fours, try another book. Contact me for more information.
