Vt1100c2 backfires through pipes on deceleration - hesitates on accelerating. It runs fine at highway speeds. Seems to throttle down slow.


Could be running too lean, check the color of your plugs to know for sure, black and dry is rich white and blistered is lean.,

Hesitates and backfires through the exaust when accelerating


Sounds as if your timing is not quite right. You need a manual, but The best I can offer is a 98: http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp , it may help, but if you only have 1100 miles on it, I would be taking it to a qualified mechanic to be fixed. Up to you.

Dos,nt take gas bake firing


I have the same bike with 8000 miles on it., Alot of bikes backfire especially these with the emissions package. I'm a smog tech and what backfiring means is detanation from a lean condition. The cylinder gets hot on decel and you get the pop. You could go the sabrehood forums and register and talk to people about these bikes.

What I did was put a k/n filter. put a stage 2 jet kit and a cobra slash cut exhaust and this seemed to reduce the amount of backfireing alot.
Bikes loud and maybe a little quietier exhaust would of been better but for now bike runs alot better.
Hope this helps

How to change sparkplugs on honda shadow motorcycle


VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

2006 honda shadow 600 backfires through the carb


Sounds to me like your running too rich, IE - theres too much fuel being burned as opposed to air. I'd check and make sure your airfilter isnt dirty, anything that restricts airflow can cause this. Dont leave the enricher on once the bikes started up...make sure you have the right plugs in there
