Good news > save your money on the clutch. Bad news > Invest it in new shift forks. What you describe is a standard symptom of bent shift forks. Sorry to be the one to tell you this.

SOURCE: !983 honda magna v45 clutch not engaging

if you rebuilt your carburetors you have made a mistake when you reassembled them a carb must sprsy a fine mist of "dry" fuel into the engine intake your carbs are flooding you need to check your fuel floats , jets and, don't forget to check the power piston circuit and, balance (sync) your carbs on the bike when you're done
your chuch is fine if you did not touch it

SOURCE: 1987 Honda rebel 250 shifting problems

the gear box is not separate on the honda rebel, which means it is using motor oil. chaning oil is the best thing you can do, although you may also want to check your linkage. probably needs to come off, get scrubbed clean, and lubed with a bit of grease.

rebels are famous for their hard to find neautrals.

ALSO! when moving, try pulling your clutch in and slightly revving your engine right before you shift into neautral. this will disengage some safety device the purpose of which i do not understand.

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:

1997 honda magna, has not run for couple of years, was able to have it idle, with full choke, push in choke after warmed up, and it stalls. Then it will restart with full choke. left it alone for a week,...

Sounds as if the carbs are fouled. Best bet is to get rid of the old gas, remove, tear down and clean up. With time old gas will cause plugging in jets and such. If you are able to drain all the old gas from the tank you may be able to get away by using new gas and a fuel treatment for cleaning the carbs. You'd have to get the engine to run for a bit to get the fuel cleaner in to the carbs, if the jest are plugged you'll have to tear them down.

I hope this may have helped,

The ignition switch on my Honda Magna VF500C is faulty

The electrical part of the switch has to be replaced. They get sloppy after awhile, and it helps not to have extra keys hanging off the key

?3rd? gear it slips win power is applied

You should be admired for being able to tear into the guts of this bike, find a problem and fix it. Most guys would back away, and rightfully so if lacking mechanical ability and tools. Strange that only 3rd gear is affected. The only possible thing I can think of is to stick in new fiber clutch plates. The plates have been used for 22 years and thousands of miles. Time to replace them just on the principle of the matter. Post a comment on how things turn out!

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Honda magna tail light not functioning properly

Did you just replace the bulb with the LED? If so, you probably got the wrong bulb. Make sure it is a 2 circuit bulb like an 1157 dual filament.
