Space's Magna
Maintenence Log
Would much appreciate you'd add to my book... thanks.



I got a 1985 magna 700 with a leaking fuel pump. I can't seem to find a new pump or used one. I'd appreciate it if someone could steer me in the direction of where I can acquire a fuel pump that will work. I am willing to try and rebuild the one I got but haven't found anything on that either. Thanks

The exceptional power band from 2nd to 3rd geard at 7k rpm is riviting. Just needs new paint as after 26 years it has a feww scratches but gets me from NJ - NY city in 40 minutes. 48 mpg and now the BAD PART... I have to sell this little charmer. facing surgery beginning of August and am going to list on ebay with a reserved price of $1500.00 Just this past weekend I entered her in a clasic bike show an took second place of the peoples choice award.

just bought an 86 magna vf700c when starting and bike on center stand you have to rock bike on center stand and it will run good. what could this be? quict the rocking motion and it dosn't want to take gas good until the engine warms up.and you have to have the choke on and it takes 20 minutes to warm up its like someting is wrong a gas problem or electrical not sure.the fuel pump is working i do have a weak spark and ordered a used coil should be here anyday now.

I own 2 magna v-45 an 82 and an 86 both great bikes! problem is, is that the fuel pump went out on the 86 and guess what? They no longer makes these parts for any of the 8o's models. Is there any one out there who has an exta one on a parts bike and would be willing to part with it that would be great.

I love my 82 V-45 Sabre, But while at the gas station,another Sabre owner asked me If I had made a modifacation to the oil system concerning more oil pressure to the tappeds. My bike has 16000 miles and needless to say ,I LOVE IT.61 yrs old Riding Free.Very greatful for a tread.And for that friend who's changed,plugs,fuel lines Etc.Check for fuel in your crankcase,which will wet your plugs and not allow your piston to seal and creat compression.And ofcourse.Fuel,copression,ingtion.Check for spark. Easy does it. Bronx James

I bought an 84 Magna V45 in February that only had 12,000 miles on it, lots of little things to fix on her but suffice it to say she has 18,000 miles now as of the end of December! When I bought it the back rim did not match and I was given the stock one, which I recently put on the bike when I replaced the back tire. This is when I discovered that they had painted the front rim black. No problem, took some chemical stripper to it today, I found out why, the chrome was pealing under the paint. Anybody know where I can get a replacement?

Hi guys, have finally got myself a Magna 1100! Great bike but would love to customise it, chop the tail, wider bridge, wheel and tank, paintjob etc... Unfortunately I can't find many photo's of Magna's to get the imagination going (custom Magna's of course) and so am stumped... Money is an object and time is of no importance as I bought the bike as a project and have no experienced the ride of a lifetime on the old dog!! Anybody who can help me out here with photo's please feel free or tips and thoughts on what and how to build my Magna. Cheers and safe Motoring ;-)

My first bike was my fathers 82 Honda Silverwing he signed over to me 5 years ago. Sadly it got stolen 3 years ago. Luckly a friend called me 9 month later and said her friend was selling a 85 Magna V65 for $1,300.I used my savings of 1000 dollars (the most I have ever saved up till that point)and my girlfriend offerd to give me the rest to buy it. I bought Jezabeel(Now named Mara knowing my car would probably break down in the winter. The last part of Nov my car broke down and I had to ride my Magna in 32-40 dagree (1 day in the rain)weather for a week till I got another car. It was the craziest and best choice I ever made. I am fixing up and customizing her. I love her and my girlfriend.

84 v30 magna. going cross country on this baby with some buddies in less than 2 weeks. virtually no riding experience. certainly no maintenance experience. i just rebuilt the clutch master cylinder but can't get pressure back in the clutch. this was the problem before the rebuild. i have no real idea of how to fix it. i have tried bleeding it but maybe i didn't hold my mouth right. for a 22 year old full of P___ and vinegar, please give me your thoughts.

I am about to buy an 85 Magna V30. The previous owner parked it 6 months ago, and now it won't start. I plan to start by draining the tank (which smells like gas, not varnish, btw), refilling with fresh gas, and buying a new battery. Any one have any thoughts or advice for me? I know very little about engines or anything like that, basically I just know how to ride. Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Maybe I'll get some pics of it up, especially if someone helps me get it running really quick. Thanks again.

We bought an '83 Honda Magna V65 1100 for $500 that had been sitting in a garage for years and needed some TLC. Now it's in beautiful condition, except it needs a clutch and second gear replaced. We called the Honda shop last fall and were told it would cost $1,000... no biggie, but now, we're being told that they won't do it 'cuz they can't get parts anymore. One "bike man" told us he'd charge $2,000 to fix it. We're looking for the parts or a used bike for parts or any suggestions you may have as to how we can get this gorgeous bike on the road. We drove it last year around the block a few times and is it ever fast! If we can't fix it, we may have to sell it.

Worked on an oil rig this summer of 2005 and made enough money to buy my first bike! Found an 1983 V45 Magna with 20,000 miles on it for a cool $1500 and I've never looked back. She's a fine runner with a flaming yellow paitn job. Only reservation I got is with the seat. Got a pretty fat touring seat on it and I'd like to switch to a slimmer style. Seat is in perfect shape. Be willing to buy or trade. Besides that, she's the best ride I've ever been on. Blown away plenty of Harley's on it!

I researched on the www and after reading about the speed thought this is not a bike for me. We went..he test drove..said write the check. We left with the bike and I was soooo mad! I had not agreed to it as after reading abt it's power was scared of it. It sat for 3 days before I even would sit on it. Finally I took it out and woohooo LOVED IT!! Yes, it can go Vroommmmm..but not unless you twist that throttle..lol. I have left my hubby in the dust on his Soft Tail several times. Handles ohhh so wonderful. Just a dream. Oh, I am a 54 yrs old, grandmother .

I just ran across your website today, and it's really great! I have the exact same bike as yours and I love it too. I had no idea that it was PC Compatible..hehehe. I just bought it last year on ebay and have already had a lot of fun with it. It's stock right now, but I may try the muffler modification. Cheers!

I just picked up a 98 Magna, I've been riding for about 25 years now. My last two bikes were Suzukis; an 1100 and most recently a 750. This Magna is awesome, or am I just getting old? Either way, I look forward to riding as often as possible.

I bought 1 83 v65 magna last summer and man did this bike win my heart. Its had some problems but it has really been dependable. I park it right by the harleys and dare any body to rat f___ my bike. It hasn't been taken care of like the prior owner wanted me to believe. But that ok because when I get done I'll know what I'll have which is a stand up bike.

At 5'2 120, and female, this is the best bike ever made. Power of a sportbike, comfort of a a cruiser. I looked for a VERY long time to find a quad exhaust, 4 cyl. Nothing out there is like the Magna. What an incredible machine. Thank you HONDA for making this bike. It's my love and my race to love. But what were you THINKING when you stopped making this bike?! Yeah, I know there are some weak points, but what bike DOESN'T have weak points about it? I would never want any other bike but the Magna. It beats the Shadow Spirit 750 and Ace 750. I raced a Vulcan 1500 and blew it off the road. On my Magna I am ALWAYS up for a race!

I just bought a 03' magna last week. I have never owned a bike, but I have riden several. I have been very impressed with this bike. The power is great, it handles well, and it excellerates smoothly. This 750 rides more like a 1100 or 1200. Oh yea, for all you tall guys, I am 6'3" and around 230, and I have had no problem with comfort. The magna is, with out a doubt, one of the best honda bikes I have riden.

I have an 03 Magna, bought her with 83 miles on in Oct. 2003(now have over 11k which for most isnt much) and I love it. Took her on about a 3500 mile vacation this year. Went thru sand,rain & 70mph wind storms in AZ, hail storm in NX and oh yeah plenty of 50mph+ cross winds in KS. Went with 7 others that didn't think we could keep up the pace, BUT we had no problem even on the smallest CC bike loaded. Plan on putting plenty more miles where they came from on her and hoping to meet up with more Magna riders along the way. Just joined the club. ALready planning for next year to return to the Smokey Mountains.

I have a '95 Magna Deluxe. Was stored a long time before I got it and carb pilot passages were thoroughly varnished, not-to-mention stock lean surge issues. Used dunk-juice on maximally disassembled carb components. Also installed Dyno-Jet jet kit for narrower needles / more midrange gas. Experimented a little but ended up with Dynojet needles, STOCK main jets, STOCK diapragm springs, with enlarged holes via Dynojet drill bit. Very nice and smooth response now from idle to top. Runs a little cooler than stock, and choke is off within 1-2 minutes in cool weather, never on in hot weather.Have baffles out (loud pipes save lives), but want classier sound of straights than chuff in holes!!

HiI have an 82 V45 Magna that I think is one of the best riding bikes ever built. It ran great over the past 10 years. For some reason now it won't start. I did the following- emptied the fule tank and added new gas.- Replaced fuel line and fuel filter.- plugs.- Carbs cleaned- Battery.It still will not start. When I turn the key, the engine turns but it sounds as if the spark plug wires are off. It is getting spark.Would you have any ideas or people I can connect with to find solutions? I love this bike.MAny thanks in advance.

Now I just bought a 1999 Magna abd just counting the day to April first to start riding again. This is the best site i have found on the web for us Magna owners. Keep up the good work. Some of us Magna owners should get together this summer for a tour through New England.

Hi Ya'll From Sherwood Arkansas (Little Rock)I've got a 1986 V65. I love it. I've wanted one since I saw my first back in 1983. It is the nicest one I have ever seen. That's no exaggeration. When I bought it, it had 4200 miles on it with the original tires and everything.Now it has 6800 miles and I am still infatuated with it.This bike will flat out fly. I'd put it up against ANY V-Twin and pretty much any 4 cylinder under 800cc.But that's just talk because I fear and respect this bike and don't want to break it.But if you see me around Sherwood and you are on a Harley or any other cruiser. Don't try and keep up because you probably can't unless I let you.

I've added some more chrome accessories and some LED blue lighting and it turns heads...If you consdidered trading your Magna don't do it...you'll regret it and if your tired of riding around your neck of the woods ride TEXAS...Hill Country, East Texas...we've got so many beautiful back roads.

I found my 1996 Magna VF750C for sale with only 1600 miles on it on 9/04. The former owner didnt appreciate the bike much I guess. I have put 1800 miles on it since then and I love the bike. The paint and the chrome turns heads all the time. I have to replace the poor quality Jardine Drag pipes but I have located a nice pair of V&H Classic II's. I love my Magna and plan on riding it for a long time. If you are ever in NY you will find me up on Perkins Peak near Bear Mountain on the weekends. Safe riding everyone!

I hadn't been on a bike in 16 years and recently purchased a 1984 VF700 V45 Magna. I love this bike!!! I am currently active duty and try to ride it everywhere.. Looking to customize it. I know some of the ofter market parts are limited. I am looking forward to the changes. My Magna is a smooth cruiser and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I was reciently hit by a drunk driver while stopped at an intersection waiting for the light to change. My 84 V65 Magna was totaled and I'm looking for a new one. I bought mine new in 1984 and kept in in my house when I wasn't riding it, it had 7,000 miles on it and was truley mint condition. I am trying to get a replacement value for the insurance company so if you have a Magna like mine and can give me a price you would sell it for I'll forward it to my insurance company.ThanksDon

I have been without a bike for several years, hoping that someday I would be able to replace the Kawasaki 454 that I had lost. Wow!!!!! What a replacement! I just purchased a 1984 V45 Magna. I plan to hold on to this one. It's awesome to be back on the road, especially on a fine machine like this one.

Here's a heartbreaker for ya. My 16 yr old son leans my 86 VF750 Magna on its side to get something out of the garage and his bicycle handle bar punctures the fuel tank given all the weight. I am devistated, and having a hell of a time finding a replacement tank. Any tips? I did a mighty Internet search and came up empty. Emailed Honda shops and nada. I am really bummed out. Any advise anyone?

My co-worker just upgraded his Harley Sportster 883 to the new 2004 1200 model. He was bragging about how with all the high performance factory parts and upgrades he had added on he will be gatting 85 horses. He mentioned that I will be having trouble keeping up with him for a change. I laughed and ponted out that my 86 V65 which is still stock puts out 105 hp. We'll see who keeps up with who.

I did the stock mod on my exhaust just a few weeks ago. I couldn't beleive how simple it was. I did not put the endplate back on however, I just painted the inside pipe flat black with high temp paint. It appears stock. I am currently in the market for a new saddle. I like the style of the Corban gunfighter, but I am slightly concerned about my comfort, I am 6'4'' tall. I have installed the MAPAM forward control kit and they have helped me out significantly.

Hello and how's everyone doing. I recently bought a 2oo3 3 magna and i think it's a great bike. I look forward to riding it for a long time to come. I do however have 1 concern. After surfing the web,and reading as much as i can about the magna,I came across this service bulletin from 1994 about top end noise from inadequate oiling of the cams via camshaft holders. Does anyone know anything about this? Has the problem been corrected? I would also like to know if it is something that i need to be concerned about? I would appreciate any help or advice. I only have 1512 miles on my bike as of now. Thank you very much. Ron

I bought it a few years back with 2O,OOO miles on it, and continue to do the regular maintence on it and it rides as good as, or better than ANY new bike produced today. It brakes, shifts, and accelerates exceptionally smoothly, and the engine just purs. It is a true piece of superb manufacturing and an overall badass ride!

My Magna is an old 1984 V65 which I have had for only a few months. This is the first Japanese bike I've owned in over 30 years as mostly I've ridden English and German. It is a novelty to just get on and ride and not have to spend an equal amount of time wrenching. I like it.

Will send pics when available. thx
