Question about 2004 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero

1 Answer

AERO 750 STALLS EVEN AFTER WARMUP - IDLE LOW ?

Even after I warm up the engine and the choke goes back in I stall at stops and have to pull out the choke a bit. I suspect a higher idle might solve this problem ? Is it worth a try ? Is there a factory "preset" making adjustment difficult ? Is getting at the idle screw easy for a novice ?

    I appreciate that advice but now that you ask I must say that after market pipes were put on by the original owner and I am stuck with them. I was told it was "re-jetted" but given my occasional backfiring, I am told maybe not re-rejetted properly. Is it still worth a shot at the idle screw ? I wonder if anyone can desrcribe the process of getting at the idle screw for an intelligent novice ? The stalling out is more of a concern than the occasional backfiring on deceleration.

The idle is a great place to start. If you have a normal bike with no engine mods ie exhaust, jet work then you need to screw the idle screw all the way in, then back it out 2 and a half turns.

    Now that I know you have exhaust it narrows it down for me. Now it sounds like two things, They have put too big of a jet in the carb or your fuel/air screw needs adjusted. Don't mess with the idle, start with the fuel/air mixture screw first.

Stalls when choke is opened.


If you adjusted idle to spec with the choke on, you need to do it again with a fully warm engine. Try turning up the idle with the choke on, to around 3k rpm, then see if you can back off on the choke.
You have a fueling issue - have you done carbs before? there are internal passages and settings that must be cleaned and adjusted.

I've a 1981 Vette that idles very rough with a cold engine start.


You need to have the choke adjusted so it runs on a fast idle so the engine can warm up or you may need the carb to be rebuild and adjusted properly.

My 1996 VF 750 C Magna starts fine with the choke open. After a minute or so as I reduce the choke and try to open the throttle, the engine just stalls out. Cannot seem to get the throttle to control


I think you are mixed up. The choke is usually closed to start a cold engine and opened once the motor warms up. The choke is closed to restrict the air flow and make the mixture richer in fuel. You can't open a choke that's already open. It's stalling because it's starved of fuel. Either a blockage or the fuel pump is not supplying enough gas.

CLUTCH problem


This is a problem that is very hard to solve on line... It could be human error.. But it could be because of power or carburation issues as well. Best thing I can tell you is to remove the spark plugs and tell me what color they are. Spark plugs are an excelent indicator of the true performance of the engine. Attach pictures of the porcilan and electrode area. This will help me determine if it is error or not.

I just bought a 91 honda accord se and when you go to stop it stalls or suts off. any ideas of what may be causing this


Check your 91 Accord's ignition coil. The coil goes bad at apprx. 150k miles and cause the car to run rough, hard to start(long cranking time) in the morning, stall after the vehicle has warmed up, cut out while driving and backfire horribly when accelerating from a standstill.

Stalling out


u have the mixture screw wound in to far. its normally located on the bottom of the carb. try winding it out half a turn at a time once the bike has warmed up. also turn the idle screw out a quarter of a turn at the time its in to far thats why it idles at low revs. the choke is needed to keep the air fuel mixture right thats why u are having to leave it on for so long. hope this helps.
