Question about 1982 Honda CBX
Clutch rattle at idle and low rev hirendouse noise makes spine crawl and eyeballs water
Glazed alternator clutch plates? Kind of a ratcheting sound? Common when oil wasn't changed or sitting unused too long.
1. Easy fix - drain oil, remove filter. Add diesel fuel to crankcase. Turn engine over. let sit and drain. Refill with new nonsynthetic oil and replace filter. Warm up. Drain, remove filter. Refill with fresh nonsynthetic oil, and install new filter.
2. Harder, but better. Remove plates and clean or replace them.

I think the noise u r describing is a characteristic of the cbx, not a "problem" . mine has a sort of "scraping" whirring type noise especially upon deceleration, i have ridden many cbx's virtually all have the noise. actually something 2 do with starter if memory serves me.

If you mean no output power, coil is bad. If you mean no input power 12v, there is a fault in the wiring. If you mean no signal from stator, wiring problem as well

SOURCE: low mileage honda with only
All Honda's make a rattle sound at idle. It goes away when you pull in the clutch lever or drive down the road. New or old , it is a normal sound for a Honda motorcycle. It did it when it was brand new and it will do it when it has 120,000 miles on it. Understand it, get used to it, any Honda rider will tell you there is no way to stop it . It is just a normal Honda sound.. Now go out and ride.
