You have rusted parts inside the tranny, try draining it and filling it up with transmission fluid (ATF), that may free up the works, do not run the engine as it will burn out the bearings.

SOURCE: hoda vf 750 wont start

hello and welcome
with that long of a storage period it is a safe bet that the jets in the carbs have plugged over. this can happen with little as a month or two without proper winterization or fuel conditioning prior to storage. so the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned properly. this is quite the task on the older v4 hondas. and i would reccomend a manual before doing so. after being removed a good can or two of aresol carb cleaner and a small gauge wire to break up builup can clean these carbs out. this is a very very common problem. and im sure you will find this to be the source for your no start. thank you.

SOURCE: can I use gl-5 80 90 wall-mart brand gear lube in

if the bike is a shaft drive,then the oil you are referring to is a gear oil only,will be fine in the rear drive unit as most standard hondas use 80-90 as standard....but under no circumstances put this grade of oil into your engine or gearbox,you will destroy the motor in a very short time

SOURCE: Front brake lever is very hard/solid when i

I am thinking that you need to change the fluid and replace the brake pads. Over time brake fluid attracts water and it states in the manual that brake fluid should be changed. I change fluid in mine every other year.

SOURCE: how do i get the back tire off my 1982 vf 750

put bike on support stand or jack up rear wheel. remove small plastic cover on the left side swing arm and remove nut that anchors brake drum housing to the swing arm support. remove the rear brake linkage from the rear drum. remove the axle nut and slide out axle shaft from axle housing. Be careful to notice the position of the spacer and washers. the installation is the same as removal. be sure to re-adjust the rear brake linkage. If adjusted properly prior to removal it might help to mark the position of the nut on the linkage before removing.

1983 honda magna vf750c


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

I tried to vacuum bleed the clutch slave cylinder on my 1982 Honda VF 750s. I was unable to do so. I removed the cylinder, filled it with brake fluid, reinstalled it, and tried again. Still nothing!...


Usually if you just loosen the banjo bolt and pump the lever a couple of times till a gush of DOT 3/4 brake fluid starts to leak past the threads. Now you should be able to tighten the banjo bolt and bleed out the system. Lay some plastic and rags under the master cylinder so you do not damage the paint or plastic with DOT 3/4 brake fluid.

I would like to know the recommended fuel octane for my 1982 Honda VF750 S Sabre. I don't have the owner's manual and this information is not in the Clymer Service Manual. I am bringing the old bike back...


You are correct; the (minimum) recommended fuel octane rating for your bike is 91. In fact, this applies to nearly every Honda motorcycle that I can think of. Back in the 60's and 70's, Honda used to recommend an octane rating of 95 - or higher.
