84 Honda V30 Magna Carb Removal
the engineering of the frame for this frame on this bike made working on it a bear. However with some muscle and a (thankfully) resilient flexible plastic air box cover, I was able to do it.
The Magna has Returned
I cant even... Thanks guys

Cleaning float needle passages on a V45 Magna without removing the carbs (hopefully). My memory card ran out, more to come...
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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh-UOplGXzU After the rebuild of the carbs, I was going nuts (as usual) reinstalling them. The usual method of just pushing them in was not working for me this time as it had every time in the past. I did a google search and found the following page: http://users.metro2000.net/~cdc/magna/tech%20section%20and%20issues/carbure tors/carburetor%20installation/carburetor%20installation.htm It worked liked a charm with a couple of modifications of my own. So, I am 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: http://www.daughertymotorsports.com/howto/Carbs/carbs.html 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 installation. One thing I did differently than the author of that page did, was I re-used my existing boots. Another thing I do differently is that I leave the boots on cylinders 2&4 loose and tilted forward. 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 from the SabMag website on the rachet strap idea. I have a both a VF700 and a VF1100 and this method works on both (will work on the VF750 as well).
