Default 1982 honda cb650-NEED HELP!!

Thanks for taking the time to view this.

I recently purchased a 82 cb650. I was riding it home doing about 60-65 and after about 15 minutes I let off the gas, the bike backfired, and lost a lot of power. I pulled off into a parking lot and by then, had little to no power. I was trying to decide what to do, and after about 20 minutes of letting the bike sit, I started it up and seemed to be working perfectly fine. After getting back on the road, it was another 10 minutes until the same thing happened again. I ended up having it towed the rest of my way to my house.

The person that towed it said that it sounded like a bad coil and I have talked to a couple other people that thought it was the same thing. Does this sound right? I do take it on short rides just around the neighborhood but anything longer than that results in the same loss of power.

Thanks for viewing and any feedback would help, THANKS!!

Sounds a possibility - a coil heats up, stops working - bike dies.

Bike Bandit has 'em for $132.10 ea. (Honda PN 172285-001, BB PN 624778 ) - quite pricey.

Could be crud in the fuel system or a partially plugged vent hole in the fuel cap. Try those if the new could doesn't fix it.

No way the seller couldn't know this problem.
