Honda Magna Carbs Install (Part 1)
Had to pull the carbs on my '86 VF700C Magna. The following video made by
"pauljt98" is a great video tutorial on how to remove them:
After the rebuild of the carbs, I was going nuts (as usual) reinstalling

posting this video as an ALTERNATE method.
Here is a link to a great method made by another V4 owner that is another
great method to use when simply pushing them in does not work:
To my demise though, I had a faulty o-ring on one of the fuel joiners and
had to pull the carbs out again. I decided to make my misfortune an
opportunity to make a video of how to use the rachet strap method of

This should help save alot of hair from being pulled out. I hopes this
helps Magna and Sabre owners alike.
Many thanks to pauljt98 for the easy removal method and many thanks to Tony

I have a both a VF700 and a VF1100 and this method works on both (will work
on the VF750 as well).
