    I Want to help my friend work on his 1984 v45 Honda Magna 750cc. I found a manual for a 1982-83 Honda magna v45 750 but I could not find one for my buddies bike. Does anyone know if the older manual will work? They don't seem to make it for his year it jumps to the next size motor up or down...

    Hi everyone, I am excited to get started here! Currently I drive a 83' Magna 750, but I'm planning to get a 650 sports bike to see what that's like. I'm open to any opinions on that, I heard they are really uncomfortable, but I want to give it a try anyway.

    I apologize for my lengthy post as well as novice repair experience. Bought the bike, put 3000 miles on it last summer, went on vacation and a couple cold weeks later went to start her up an it had a fairly rough idle and would immediately stall when the choke is taken off or given any...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum, and with a bit of luck will also be a new biker very soon. I've got a deal lined up for a 2000 Honda Magna, the exterior is in pristine condition. It's been sitting for 3 years and the gas tank seems badly rusted, I know it will obviously need a full fluids flush...

    I've just started to restore this bike, and have heard some horror stories on working on this bike. The bike is not running yet. It has been setting up for three years, it was running when parked, gas was drained, and he ran it till it ran out getting the gas out of the carbs. I've bled all...

    1983 Honda Magna 750 with Carberator problem All the carbs were professionally rebuilt a couple months ago. Old fuel was flushed out and an inline fuel filet was installed before restart. Starts and idles fine but when you give it gas it dies. Was wondering if there was not enough fuel...

    So, last week I decided to change my handlebars and I took everything off, but then life got in the way and I had to let it sit for a week with everything off, including taking the throttle cables off the tube. Yesterday, I put it all back together and went to start it up and it wouldn't catch...

    Hey guys, I have an 84 Magna V30 and on hot days the temp gauge gets almost all the way to the red line and that has me worried. If happens after I've ridden her for a while and then end up at a stop light or some stop and go traffic. It doesn't take long for it to get close to the red line and...

    Hey, thought I'd pick your brains here. My 1995 Magna VF750 is only getting about 21mi/gallon. That's REALLY low. I should be in the upper 20's or low 30's. I'm not riding it rough either. Wondering what might be causing the issue. Any suggestions?

    The more miles I put on my V45 Magna, the less crazy I am about the buckhorn style handlebars. Has anybody switched theirs out with something a little more wrist friendly? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I have an 83 V65 magna that will not start. I was riding in town, it was running fine. I stopped and ran in the store. When I came out and tried to start the bike up, it wouldnt. It would just crank and crank. I think it might be the ignitors, but what are the chance of both of them failing...

    I got my '83 V45 Magna inspected and tagged today! If only I could ride the hell out of it... The bike fires up and runs for a short while just fine. Maybe 10 mins. Then it starts to get sluggish and progressively worse over about 5 minutes until it stalls. When I pull the plugs the front 2 are...

    Hi all- I'm new here and I'd like to see if anyone has any thoughts on a problem I'm having with my bike. Here's a post where I describe what I've done to the bike so far to get it to the point its at: When I purchased the bike it was in pretty decent physical shape. Needed cleaned up and some...

    Ok so I don't know why I didn't think of this before! My exhaust was changed to aftermarket pipes before I even bought the bike. I'm pretty sure that they're pretty high flow pipes. They sound pretty deep. (should I say "pretty" again? :tongue: ) I am going to run straight pipes (for sound...

    Would it be ok to run 2" pipes with no muffler or baffle or whatever? Just four empty 2" pipes. I do it on my carbureted cars all the time but I wasn't sure what the risk of doing this on my bike were. Compression etc... I'm only using this bike for to and from work and daily cruising. Not...
