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...
  8. 1995 Magna Having Low Gas Mileage. What's Going On??

    Honda
    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?
  9. Suggestions for alternate handlebars for an 1982 V45 Magna?

    Honda
    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.

  14. Exhaust was changed before I bought. Already been rejetted?

    Honda
    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...
  15. 96 magna exhaust and suspension ?s

    First Bike / New Rider
    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...
