Did this video help you?

Danny Hinton: Do the 84 vf700c's have a different frame? I can NOT for the life of me get the carbs out in one piece. I've disconnected the throttle cables, got it out of all 4 boots, taken off the radiator, disconnected everything, and they can not squeeze out.

thatdude: thanks mate!

Tyler Gallimore: Hey I have a Honda sabre 750 v4 its a 1982 the gas tube ts broke and I was wondering if u have any ideas to fix them

rudy behr: fc help ive got an 85 magna and cant find anyone who knows exactly how to hook up all the linkage to the carbs if at all possible could you help me out thats all i need to get done on this bike in order to hit the road cant even find a book on it anymore

fctotal: @Magnageek I'd start with the air filter replacement & carb cleaning. If they haven't been cleaned in a few years, then it's definitely due. The enthanol & methanol additives in gasoline these days gums up the older carbs and has prompted more frequent cleanings.

cyclist2001: Excellent video. I finally assembled the carbs correctly and the bike works great! Be sure to use a credit card float gauge, and bench test for leaks before reinstalling, or you will have the joy of repeating the whole installation and removal process again.

Magnageek: Hey, buddy, help a fellow motor-head out, as I'm out of ideas. My 1995 Magna runs like crap. It will start and idle, but it won't even get over 1500 rpm without cutting out. It's had new plugs, fresh gas, air filter, vacuum fuel valve is good, timing is on. It seems that I'm down to carburetion, but I loathe taking them off. I ran carb cleaner though the fuel lines and let the engine idle a bit. Still nothing. What do you think? Thanks!

Alphonsos DaMan: Ok got the same motor but wont start! i can Imagine how to take the carb out ill just do the reverse of what u did :D any tricks? But when i get it out how far do i take the carb apart and what what do i clean on the carb? Can u help me there? I live in Europe and a manual here costs up the yinyang!! Find anything that can help me visually online with this bike? Just bought a sync guage!!!!! Thanks Brother!!!

fctotal: @MrOverdoser Actually, I have stopped smoking cigarrettes. I switched to the electronic cigarrettes and am rwefilling my own cartridges now. Pretty much the equivalent of 50 cents a pack and no smoke, no tarm etc. Just vapor :) Not 100% healthy, but not as bad as cigarrettes and alot cheaper too!

BikerBry: Don't use solvent cleaners on the rubber. If they are dirty, use soap and water, rince well, dry and for installation I recommend giving them a good coat of silicone from a spray can. The silicone will help rehydrate the rubber. Rubber "evaporates" as it ages, silicone will help curb and even somewhat reverse this aging.

JRL3: anyone see that huge bug at 5:20?

fctotal: That could be a number of things. The first thing I would do though is to take apart the slave cylinder, clean it up, and bleed it. Could also be a simple matter of the clutch master cylinder needing to be rebuilt from sitting so long.

fctotal: That was Joey, the Honda-Sponsored Spotted Moth. He elected to be our helper for the duration. He actually appears in a few other spots for one to two frames at a time as he flies just on the egde of the picture. Good eye on that one though! :)

fctotal: Generally, you can get away with pulling the fuel bowl cover off and cleaning it from there. Chances are, the filter screen that sits inder the needle in each of your cabrs is full of buildup. Be sure to get a gasket set for it. Once you move the fuel supply bars around, they tend to leak unless you put new gaskets in. On bikes this old, replacing all the rubber in the carb is never a bad idea :)

fctotal: @skinz1234 Look in my video description. There's a link on how to remove them. As to how far you have to disaseemble them, that all depends on how dirty they are and how worn out the rings are. Have you verified your fuel pump is getting gas to the carbs by taking the fuel line off from the carbs, pointing the end to a jar, and turning the engine over to see if fuel starts being delivered into the jar?

BikerBry: Oh! And no matter HOW careful you thing you were, look inside each intake port in the head before reassembling to make sure there is nothing in there. A loose screw, small rodents etc... double check once so you aren't doing the job twice.

fctotal: Google v4hondabbs and register on there. Go to the "They All Do That" forum and do a search. Nothing I could type here would be any different than the info you'd find there :)

john querubin: i have a 84 vf500 magna how can i troubleshoot the charging system? thank you

Brass Monkey: Good video but I do have one suggestion. You state to coat them with oil for easier installation, I would avoid using oil. Oil degrades and swells rubber, best choice would be silicone lubricant as it is safe to use on plastic/rubber parts.

Alphonsos DaMan: Got it all figured out know any tricks to seal the boots???

ThePresidentialTouch: I'm getting mine to run again, but due to it being stored at someone else's residence, teenagers got onto it and locked the rear wheel in gear. Having never dealt with this problem before, I don't know how to get it free again. Any help heap much appreciated.

fctotal: You'll have to pull the rack, take that carb off (#1 carb) and disassemble it to replace the idle stop adjustment adjustment screw. If you go to eBay NOW, there is one listed for $9.00 w/ free shipping. Go to eBay and search for CARBURETOR THROTTLE STOP IDLE SCREW and you'll find it.

Tom R: Great how to's. Appreciated very much. Roll Tide Roll!

MrOverdoser: Great tutorial and upload! It helped me tremendously. Doing the job myself, i used this method with the straps in part 2- in fact I used it vertically also, to pop the bottom in front down! the oil-warm up tips helped too! Worked like a charm- except I started smoking again- that's probably the key! Any tips on how to stop smoking now? lol God Bless!
