My Honda Shadow VT500C starts up easy when it's cold or sits for a while, and it runs great and has plenty of power. But when I ride it for a couple of miles and cut it off it is hard to start. It


You need to disassemble your carbs completely.Anything that can be removed of them, remove it and check/clean it.Give extra attention to part number 5 herehttp://www.babbittsonline.com/honda-motorcycle-parts#/Honda/VT500FT_A_(84)_MOTORCYCLE%2c_JPN%2c_VIN%23_JH2PC100-EM100006_TO_JH2PC100-EM105150/CARBURETOR_COMPONENT/VT500FT-84-JPN-A/2Y14MF5DE14MF5D2001A
That is the pilot screw and is responsible for proper idling. Take it out, remove spring,washer and o-ring and use carburetor cleaner aerosol in it's passage and compressed air. That passage leads to the slow jet so remove so that any dirt can come out.Check the holes on the slow jet's stem to be open and look into each slow jet against a light source to verify that it is clean inside.Take out the diaphragms off the top of each carburetor and check that they move freely and the diaphragms are not torn or cracked anywhere on their surface.Clean your fuel tank and remove the fuel **** to check the plastic filter element it has inside the tank.Also check the rubber insulators the carbs plugs on to if they are cracked or damaged. Use some vaseline on their outside surface to keep them soft.If all the above checks out Ok my next thought is the pulse generator (part #9)http://www.babbittsonline.com/honda-motorcycle-parts#/Honda/VT500FT_A_(84)_MOTORCYCLE%2c_JPN%2c_VIN%23_JH2PC100-EM100006_TO_JH2PC100-EM105150/PULSE_GENERATOR/VT500FT-84-JPN-A/2Y14MF5DE14MF5D08A
but I am not that sure about it because if it had gone bad, you shouldn't be able to have a proper idle speed even when cold.

1986 Honda VT 500 C Shadow starter spins engine will not turn over


Hi, Ksholes1127 the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.
