Question about 1998 Honda VT 750 C2 Shadow
The bike has been sitting for a few months. tried to start it. It would run for few seconds then stop. This was on full choke. After about 30 minutes of back and forth it finally would stay running, but only on full choke. Finally got it to throttle up with choke off after about an hour, but would only run if you were on the gas. If you tried to let it idle it would die. Also, front cylinder would not get hot and exhaust from this cylinder would not warm up untillI was finally able to throttle it up. then it got hot. Replaced the spark plugs, now all I can get it to do is to run a few seconds with choke on, and then it dies. What is wrong?
