Question about 1999 Honda V-Twin Magna
Just bought a 1999 honda magna with 4000 miles on it. previous owner said he had carbs cleaned. bike starts fine and idles fine. it surges at all speeds up to about 55 mph. after that it runs great. does it need the carbs to be cleaned again or shim the needles or both. or is it something else? love the bike but need to get it running like it should.
The carbs may need to be cleaned. Try running seafoam in the tank first and see if that clears some of it up. The slow jets may be plugged up inside the carbs. If the snorkel had been removed from the airbox, it could cause siminlar problems as well. have you changed the spark plugs yet? be sure to check out the Honda Magna forums for more info:
