Phosphoric acid works really well at cleaning gas tanks. Is that an 80's era Honda Comstar wheel that I spot in your garage 1990TsiAwdTalon?

I had to keep moving when I got off work to get it done otherwise my ass sinks into the chair I'm sitting in right now. ROFL

Lately I seem to be more like the cat, asleep on the couch.
It's taken me a month to do a couple hour job cause I only put a half hour in here and there between naps. :)

That is my 1984 V45 Magna Matt. My son took the carbs off to fix the fuel leaking onto my leg and now we can't figure out how to get the set of 4 back on without springs flying everywhere. It was hard to get them off as a set....even harder to get them back on sad to say. I love that bike, she is fast as hell. Not as fast as the V65 was but still worthy!
Nice spot, LOL.

Thanks for mentioning this - glad to know other people find this annoying too.
One of my neighbors had a really nice JDM Suzuki Carry kei truck that started having what seemed like fuel delivery problems. So we took the top of the carburetor off. BIG MISTAKE. That stupid spring in there is long and narrow so it is unstable when you try to compress it. We couldn't get it back together.
I still don't know how you are supposed to get those things back together.
But googling "V45 Magna carburetor springs" at least gives me plenty of diagrams to look at, which is more than we had for the Suzuki.

If I have a "highly motivated" day I can work in the garage for about 2 hours. Then I'll take the rest of the night "off", just watching fun stuff on the computer, YouTube or whatever. And cooking and eating. And probably take the next day "off" too. Right now I'm going to go outside and do nothing but enjoy being outside! As I walk past the Talon I'll tell it that it's a nice little car. 🙂
