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.
MisterShwag: 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?
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
tim j: thanks.
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 :)
tim j: i have a 1984 vf500 magna v30. i have one of the screws that adjust the
idle on the back left rear carburator , the head is broke off the
adjustment screw. i have tried taking it out with needle nose pliers but to
no avail, the bike still runs good just that i wont be able to adjust the
idle, any suggestions?? my email is eucredawwg @ yahoo.com
john querubin: i have a 84 vf500 magna how can i troubleshoot the charging system? thank
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
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!
