    I think my local Honda dealer is nutts. I call them up tell them. I have a 1986 Honda V45 Magna had to explain to them what it was. lol Then I said I need an oil change and my coolant swapped out. He said sorry we dont work on bikes over 10 years old. So i tell him its in perfect shape always garage kept 20,000 miles. Then he says ok we will do it. Then says well I cant find any info on that year or model of bike in our system. Then says but we will be hapy to do it the total will be $200 plus tax. I said for a oil change and a coolant drain and fill you must be crazy and I hung up my phone. I normally would do this myself but I figured i dont feel like laying on the ground at this time and I could see paying $100 maybe $150 but over $200 with tax Holy shit!!

    1985 magna 700. I cleaned and rebuilt my carbs. Almost positive everything is back together proper. It turns over but wont start. Im hoping its just because of the cold weather and me only starting it about 10 times since I bought it(finding the sweet spot in the idle). I first want to check and see if their is fuel going into the carbs ; how do I do that...theres a screw somewhere that drains fuel right? If they have fuel Im going to pull the plugs...anything else? Do you think its just a case of me being completely green and it not being over 45 degrees here yet?

    Hoping somone can give me some advice here. I have an 85 v65 magna i just baught a week ago not running. Carbs were gummed up very badly. I took the carbs off the bike cleaned them and installed new needle and seats in each carb. I did not do a carb sync i figured they were already synced from the factory and i did not remove the mixture screws behind the plates. Just a simple cleaning. Bike runs great. I jeed to adjust the idle up a bit itll idle around 600 rms for a minute then die but if i keep her at 1000 she stays running good. The bike seems to have little more to me. Iv only got it to go 85 so far and thats about it. 4th gear wide open throttle i gain speed very slowly. Is tjat how these bikes are? Or am i missing out on power?
