You cannot beat this deal anywhere unless you do it yourself! If you want to do it yourself, I sell 6 levels of rebuild kits. Way cheaper than Honda and just as good! Your carbs will be carefully hand rebuilt by me.I have been an avid V4 owner since'82 when I bought my new off the showroom floor V45 Magna. My bike these past 15+ years is an'83 V65 Magna. The wife has a'96 Magna. I stand behind my products and if you are unhappy I will make it right. All metal parts get cleaned in my sweep frequency ultrasonic cleaner. Float bowls and intake plenum are bead blasted internally to remove all corrosion. This is for the Primo svc only. Every component is inspected for damage and wear and replaced as needed. Each carb is outfitted with new Japanese made float valve assy's. All seals are replaced with new Viton and nitrile seals. Viton seals are used on all fuel exposed parts. All hardware is replaced with stainless steel Allen screws, washers, nuts, hitch pins etc. Pilot screws are preset to factory specs. All throttle plates and choke pistons are bench synched for an easy startup. Comes with a new fuel filter to protect your freshly cleaned carbs. Comes with new coolant tube seals, do this while your carbs are out of the bike. The carbs you see in the pics are polished carbs from my more Primo rebuild service. If you opt for the Econo service they will not be this pretty but will be built to the same high standard functionally. Also included are pics of replacement parts that will be used in your rebuild. All rebuilds have my Super Carb Kit installed.
I love these old bikes and want to see them on the road as long as is humanly possible. I'm primarily a carb guy but being a long time Magna owner I know a lot about them, their common quirks and design flaws and the fixes that have been developed. The best time to call is between Noon and 8PM Central.
Q - How long does this service take? A - Tough question to be specific on. It can be as little as 10 days to as long as 4 weeks. I encourage riders to send their carbs in during the off season (winter for most) when business is slow for the fastest turnaround. Send them to me in the Spring time and Summer and it will take longer cause everybody wants them at the same time.
During peak riding season the average wait runs appx 3 weeks. I stay very busy then and the line of racks awaiting rebuilds can get long indeed. Q - What is the difference between the Primo and Econo services? A - Functionally they are identical rebuilds. One works just as well as the other.The Primo is polished, shiny! The Econo is not polished. If it comes in ugly it will leave ugly but clean. Shiny is more for the Magna guys but some folks are picky about their Sabres and Interceptors and want them cosmetically nice.
Q - I'm thinking about rejetting. Can you do that for me? Q - When should I rejet? A - Several reasons actually. The majority of the time there is no valid reason.
Honda did a great job on dialing these carbs in. If you install a header system you need to up the main and slow jets. If you primarily ride in a very cold climate, extreme heat or high altitude a rejet may be in order. I'll be happy to discuss it with you so that we can get it right.
Q - My 700cc bike has a flat spot around 5k - 6k rpms, wth? A - This is one Honda blew it on.
Common problem and I suspect it had more to do with the EPA and their restrictive emissions rules. As a matter of course I will shim the main jet needles to cure this problem. All of my carb kits come with these shims for the DIY'er. Q - My carbs are leaking fuel down the sides. A - 30 + yr old rubber seals are way past their use by date.
The fuel tube seals and the float bowl seals harder and crack resulting in leaks. My rebuild replaces all seals and you'll be good to go for another 20 + years. Q - My carbs are dumping fuel out the rear overflow and/or is flooding badly. A - It's a float valve assy problem.
It may just be dirt caught in the needle/seat area and sometimes a whack on the sides of the bowls with a screwdriver handle will fix it temporarily. The problem is, the float needles have rubber tips which are 30 + yrs old. They are hard and maybe worn causing a poor seal. The other problem is the opposite end of the float needles have a spring loaded pin. The spring is weak/worn out and the pin is likely corroding which can cause intermittent hanging up of the float.
My rebuild service replaces all this for a long term fix. If your bike has these symptoms check your oil for the presence of fuel. It will leak past an open intake valve, pour onto the piston and leak past the rings into the crankcase. Gasoline makes a very poor lubricant and can cause a spun main/rod bearing.
Dump the oil and filter and fix the carb issues before adding fresh oil. Q - My bike won't idle unless I add choke or idles rough and dies when I touch the throttle.A - 90% of my rebuild work is directly related to this problem. You have dirty/clogged idle circuits.
Causes are dirty gas, clogged/damaged fuel filter, and the biggie is the bike sat up for an extended period unprepped for storage. The new Ethanol blended fuels are notorious for separating out the chemicals and clogging your idle circuits. Q - How do I avoid the long term storage problems with Ethanol fuels. A - You can run marine grade fuel stabilizers and that will certainly help but the best way is just drain the bowls. Shut off the petcock if so equipped also.
Q - Will I need to do anything else to my carbs after install? A - The carbs are set as perfect as is possible on the bench.The trouble is every engine varies. Carbon deposits, ring wear, valve wear, valve adjustment variations, minute vacuum leaks etc all cause compression variations which affect the vacuum that is seen on each cylinder. There are also variances caused by temperature and altitude. This is why a vacuum synch and pilot screw adjust must be performed for optimal performance. They will normally run well out of the box and definitely much better than when they came off the bike but if you want perfection you gotta do the extra work. You will get better throttle response and mileage/power with a good vacuum synch and idle air/fuel mixture adjustment.
