I wish I could find the hard luggage that he has on his for mine. I have a new 09 Kawasaki Versys but still love to ride the old CX. I kept hoping you would mention what you guys found wrong with his bike. Inquiry minds wanna know. Mine ran similar to that when my airbox intake boots rotted out.
The stator on the CX's is located inside the motor. We had to replace it with a modified wiring harness shortly before leaving. I'm guessing a solder joint on the repaired harness came loose. We've yet to get the motor out so I can't say for sure.
@DRONE, I never could get packing down. Moving the tool bag to the top of my gas tank helped, but that's not till later.
thanks guys, more coming...
