On my CX500 right side it seems like the coil may be going out but I get spark but it doesn't seem to fire. It seems to come and go, will a coil do that or should I try a new plug wire?

Thanks,

Tim...

Update. I just found a picture of the plug cap disassembled. Seriously? I'll start cleaning parts first, had no idea.

I can't get it apart. The resistor comes out but the rest is stuck in side. Tried soaking it with WD40 still no luck and I don't have another one. I don't want to break anything so I've not been too aggressive.

Thanks'

As you haven't put your model or location I'm not sure where you are Tim?

Anyhoo.The plugs caps seem a little sparse in the USA and Wemoto post to the US and are a trusted International seller.If you get these ones,

http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/honda/cx_50 ... _plug_cap/

They are the better/simpler ones I use and don't have the complicated resistor system in them.

But then you should change your Spark plugs to ,"R" rated resistor plugs Standard or Iridium NGK as per,

http://www.pdsrecording.site90.com/cxgl500/Plugs.htm

If there is anything else you need for your bike buy that as wellto help with the wait and postage but change to your model for other bits.
